As people age, their bodies and medical needs begin to change; this is true of our pets as well. That is why Dr. Jeanes and the caring staff at Northtown Animal Clinic will develop an individualized plan for your pets, no matter what stage they are in their lives.
When puppies and kittens come to Northtown Animal Clinic for the first time, Dr. Jeanes will perform a routine physical examination and collect a fecal sample to check for intestinal parasites. He will establish a vaccine protocol based on your pet’s lifestyle, and will recommend the best heartworm and flea and tick preventatives that are just right for your pet. Additionally, Dr. Jeanes will provide you with recommendations for appropriate diet and exercise for your youngster. He may also discuss the best time to spay or neuter your pet.
Once a baseline of information has been established for your young pet, it is essential to maintain annual visits to the veterinarian to monitor your pet’s health and catch potential problems so that they don’t develop into a serious condition.
As your pet ages, health profiles become extremely important for your pet's well-being. Dog and cats that are seven years old are considered seniors, and it is recommended that we see them twice a year. Physical exams, blood work that checks blood chemistry levels, and complete blood counts provide valuable information about your aging pet’s overall health.
Whether your pet is a puppy or a kitten, young adult, or senior, come see us at Northtown Animal Clinic in Jackson, Mississippi. We would love to get to know you and your pets and start them on a journey of healthy and happy living.
