Wellness Care

Buckley Veterinary Hospital’s wellness care program for dogs and cats includes physical examinations performed by our highly trained veterinarians and tailored vaccinations to combat contagious diseases. We formulate an individualized treatment plan that caters to your pet’s individual needs based on your pet’s species, physical condition, lifestyle, and previous immunization history.

To establish a comprehensive profile of your pet's health, wellness care visits include a physical examination, internal and external parasite screenings, vaccinations, dietary assessment, and blood tests if necessary. In addition, our veterinarians will monitor your pet’s weight so that we can recommend modifications in diet or exercise if necessary. A healthy body weight is important for your pet to live a long and healthy life.

Preparing Your Cat for Their Visit

For the safety of your cat, it should be transported in a secure carrier. Help your cat become comfortable with the carrier during the days prior to their appointment with us by placing it in a room where he or she spends a lot of time. Adding familiar objects such as soft bedding and placing treats, catnip, or toys inside the carrier will decrease their anxiety and help your cat to relax. Note that this may take several tries.

If your cat is especially anxious during the car ride, you may want to cover the carrier with a blanket or towel. Some cats like to see what's happening, but others prefer when the carrier is covered. See which option your cat likes best by placing them inside the carrier while transporting them around the house, both covered and uncovered.
