As a loving Chester Springs pet owner, you already know that pet wellness is very important to your pet's longevity and happiness. We are here to help you provide pet wellness care for all of your animals, whether your pet is a dog, a cat, a ferret, or another "pocket pet" such as a gerbil or rabbit. We have pet wellness plans custom designed for each type of animal, and our veterinarian and animal vet clinic staff vow to do our best to keep your animals well and happy!
Our Chester Springs veterinarians, Dr. David Matunis and Dr. Jennifer Granite both recommend starting pet wellness plans as soon as you adopt a new pet. This will normally begin with a "get to know you" pet visit with the veterinarian, and the initial vaccinations needed for your new animal companion. Rabies vaccinations must be given regularly, as well as protective vaccinations meant for your new pet.
Most pets will also undergo spay and neuter surgeries before six months of age. A spayed or neutered pet is a much happier and healthier pet -- this is a gift that can help reduce the unwanted-pet population, can help discourage destructive behaviors, and even reduce the risk of certain reproductive related diseases and illnesses.
Check-up exams are a vital component of pet wellness plans here at Eagle Animal Hospital. We usually schedule your pets for yearly exams, and we are also here for any extra visits that are required. During health checkups, we will examine your pet from ears to tail, including dental exams, dermatology exams, and radiology and lab services where needed.
The gift of wellness is one of the greatest presents that Downingtown, Exton, and Chester Springs pet owners can give to your pet -- and to yourself! Please ask us anything you'd like to know about pet wellness care.
