As your pet’s caregiver, you are charged with the important task of keeping that little guy or gal happy and healthy for as many years as possible. At Woodland Hills Pet Clinic, we consider it a true honor to partner with you in this endeavor. That’s why we’ve worked so hard to develop a wellness program that is designed to help your pet achieve optimum health for life, whether it’s a first puppy visit or specialized care for your senior companion.
Many pet parents wonder if it’s really necessary to bring their four-legged friends in to the vet when they seem to be perfectly healthy. The reality is, even an animal that appears fine on the outside may actually be experiencing a serious health problem on the inside. If left untreated, these issues can progress and worsen, making them much more difficult and expensive to treat. Wellness care helps us to keep a close eye on your companion’s health, year after year, preventing illness and catching it in its earliest stages. This is the best way to keep your loved one in good health and improve the chances of a long, happy life.
Our ultimate goal with wellness care is to protect your pet from many of the dangers he or she will encounter throughout the years. This is done through developing a customized plan for routine vaccinations. Other preventative measures include nutrition, weight management, parasite control, and behavioral advice. We want to help your pet maintain a strong immune system and remain as healthy and fit as possible. In turn, this will improve his or her overall life and longevity.
Wellness care also involves ongoing health management through early disease detection. When we are able to examine your pet on a regular basis, we are able to recognize the signs of potential medical concerns as soon as they occur. Identifying, diagnosing and treating illness as early as possible can mean more happy, healthy years you get to spend together. We know this is your ultimate goal, and it’s something we strive for as well.
For optimum results, we recommend that healthy adult dogs and cats visit with us at least once a year. Puppies, kittens, senior pets, and animals with existing health issues typically require more frequent checkups. We’ll work with you to create an individualized wellness program, including a customized preventative care protocol that is tailored specifically to your pet.
Congratulations on your new puppy! We are honored that you’ve chosen us to help protect and care for the new addition to your family. Our puppy wellness program is designed to help get your new four-legged friend started on the right path to a long and healthy life. The first few months are a critical period in your puppy’s development. We can give you the support and tools necessary to help him or her grow into a well-mannered, healthy dog. This includes information and advice on nutrition, training, behavior, and socialization.
Our new puppy visits are very comprehensive. In fact, we dedicate an entire hour to you and your new family member! During each scheduled visit, we will perform a complete physical examination to assess your pup’s health and rule out any potential medical concerns. We’re also happy to answer any questions you may have regarding feeding, housebreaking, chewing/biting, basic care and training.
Until your puppy has received a series of vaccines, he or she is susceptible to many serious but preventable diseases. We will make sure your new companion is protected against rabies, distemper, and parvovirus, among other diseases. Your puppy will also need to be tested and treated for parasites, which are extremely common in young dogs. Some parasites can even be transmitted to humans. By ensuring that your puppy is properly treated, you can keep your entire family safe.

Until your kitten has received a series of vaccines, he or she is susceptible to many serious but preventable diseases. We will make sure your new pet is protected against rabies and panleukopenia (distemper). Depending on your cat’s lifestyle and risk factors, we may also recommend vaccinating against other diseases, such as feline leukemia virus (FeLV). In addition, your kitten will need to be tested and treated for common parasites, some of which can be transmitted to humans. By ensuring that your kitten is properly treated, you can keep your entire family safe.
