VetIQ Petcare centers help you keep your pet healthy
Pets are part of the family, and it���s natural to want to keep them healthy and happy. Pet owners who are actively involved in an animal���s medical care help their pets maintain wellness. VetIQ makes it easy and convenient to participate in your pet���s healthcare. Our 360-degree approach to pet wellness provides you with the information you need to make informed decisions on behalf of your furry friend. The process begins with an online assessment followed by a checkup at a VetIQ facility.
The VetIQ wellness assessment
When your focus is maintaining your pet���s health, an assessment of their current condition is an ideal place to begin. At VetIQ, this is set up as an online assessment so you can fill it out from the comfort of home. The assessment is designed to be breed-specific, so the results you get are tailored to the exact type of animal you have. This lets you provide information about lifestyle topics like previous health issues, your pet���s breed, feeding habits, and your pet���s weight. The process provides you with alerts if potential health issues exist, so you know to discuss the matters with the veterinarian when you visit.
VetIQ pet wellness checkups
When you visit PetIQ to learn about ways to enhance your pet���s health, one of our licensed veterinarians perform a thorough checkup. No appointment is required, so you can arrange your visit on your terms and your timeline. Wellness checkups provide information about your pet���s overall condition. You also get guidance regarding keeping your pet healthy and avoiding conditions that could threaten your pet���s life. The checkup explores eight key aspects of pet health:
- General health
- Head and snout
- Skin and coat
- Weight and nutrition
If your pet���s wellness check uncovers the need for further treatment, the veterinarian takes the time to discuss your options and answer any questions you may have about the results of the wellness exam. This information puts you in control and gives you the facts you need to help your furry family member stay healthy. If needed, we���re able to request records from your previous veterinarian with your permission.
Wellness check frequency
While the frequency of your pet���s wellness checks is ultimately up to you, the American Animal Hospital Association recommends providing pet exams annually for younger pets and bi-annually for older ones. Puppies are typically examined monthly for the first few months of life. Frequent wellness checks are ideal because they help veterinarians detect potential illnesses before they become extreme. Plus, early detection not only helps your pet avoid the risk of severe illness, but it also helps you keep veterinary costs down.
Personalized pet wellness plans
When you want to know what to do to support your pet���s health, the veterinarian at VetIQ helps you create a plan. It includes details like a vaccination schedule and information about things such as nutrition that support your pet���s well-being. This happens after the wellness check is complete. PetIQ also offers several crucial wellness services so you can get everything done in one stop at prices that are friendly to your wallet.
