The team at Rising Sun Animal Wellness Center recognizes the importance of the human-animal bond. We also recognize the role wellness plays in that bond. We emphasize an annual head to toe physical examination for every pet. We address eye, ear, skin, hair coat, weight, diet and behavior concerns. Dental disease can be prevented which helps maintain healthy heart and kidney function, not to mention better breath.
Diagnostic capabilities within the clinic include blood chemistry and CBC analysis, parasite detection and radiography. We offer assistance with referrals when an animal’s condition requires the expertise of a specialist and close contact is maintained with the specialty clinic in order to see each case through to resolution.
We have long advocated 3 year intervals for adult canine and feline distemper/parvovirus vaccines realizing the yearly protocol caused unnecessary stimulation of the immune system. This reduced vaccine protocol is now widely accepted, but we urge owners to bring pets in for an annual exam because, as in human medicine, early detection of problems leads to better outcomes.
