Pet Wellness in Greenfield
At Greenfield Veterinary Clinic we recommend yearly wellness pet care exams for your canine and feline family members. Our special wellness program focuses on preventative pet care based on the particular stage of life your pet is in, beginning with the puppy/kitten stage straight through the geriatric stages of your pet’s life.
Each pet patient is evaluated individually based on aspects such as age, breed, species, and environmental challenges. Then our veterinarian at our Greenfield Clinic will make recommendations for preventive measures to keep your pet healthy, nutrition, and any diagnostic tests that are appropriate for your pet.
Heartworm prevention, vaccinations, and routine deworming are all important components of a pet care wellness exam, these components allow us to try and prevent diseases that can be life-threatening, and extremely expensive to treat.
