Pet Wellness Care Keeps Companions Healthy and Strong
The puppy/kitten stage of your pet’s life is short, but routine wellness care can keep them feeling young well into the future. Companion Animal Hospital Kenosha wants to help you preserve your pet’s inner youth and spend as many years with them as possible. Thus, we recommend yearly visits with your pet to keep their health on track and make any needed changes. Pet wellness care offers many valuable benefits, including early disease detection and prevention. Prevention is the best medicine when it comes to protecting your pet from potentially life-threatening illness.
What an Exam Entails
The physical exam is a good way for us to check your pet for external health issues. Furthermore, it gives us the opportunity to measure their weight and evaluate their organ function. Like humans, pets need to have their temperature, heart rate, and respiratory rate checked. If any of these vitals function outside of the normal range, there could be a problem that needs treatment.
Additional treatment services we offer include:
- Customized vaccinations
- Diagnostic testing (blood, fecal, and urine)
- Parasite screening
- Nutritional and behavioral counseling
- Prescribed medications to treat illness or infection
They are simply the best- very caring, considerate, and helpful! I've been through very difficult experiences (obstructions and cancer) with my previous dog and they were there every step of the way both for my dog's medical needs and my emotional ones. Now, I'lI know they will be there with my new puppy!

A Lifetime of Wellness Care for Your Pet
Pets at every life stage should be seen regularly for exams and treatment. Puppies, kittens, and senior pets are especially vulnerable to injury and illness and may need to see their veterinarian more than once a year. For senior pets, we also recommend routine diagnostic testing and frequent check-ups if they have a chronic health issue. Conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and arthritis are common in seniors.
