To ensure better health and a longer life, bring your pet to Animal Clinic of Anacostia in Washington, DC
, for wellness exams and
Wellness exams help detect any underlying or silent conditions that can be cured early on, sparing your pet from pain and agony. At our veterinary clinic
, we recommend that you bring your pet in for a wellness exam at least twice a year.
A wellness exam includes a thorough physical examination of your pet's eyes, ears, nose, throat, skin and coat, and heart auscultation, as well as an oral exam to detect gingivitis and dental plaque. In addition, we may recommend X-rays and blood tests to diagnose and rectify any problems.
Vaccinations minimize the risk of contagious diseases in your pets. The rabies vaccination is an absolute must, as it is required by law.
During your pet's vaccination appointment, we also perform a thorough checkup. Vaccine titers are also available. Just remember, one year in a dog's life is comparable to seven years in a human's life, so getting booster vaccinations every year is actually not that frequent for them!
