The idea of pet wellness is very similar to that of humans; “well” visits allow us to build a foundation for optimal, lasting health. With that in mind, preventing illness with vaccinations, proper nutrition, and exercise are top priorities. Through regular wellness care, your pet can lead a longer, healthier, and happier life. Who could ask for more?
A Proactive Approach
Pet wellness visits create an opportunity to address conditions before they worsen and require costly emergency care. Because pets age faster than humans, taking a preventive approach can also reveal age-related problems in a timely manner, improving health outcomes for your senior pet.
Lifelong health means paying attention to your pet’s vaccinations and parasite prevention. During your pet’s wellness visit, we assess age, lifestyle, and other risk factors before administering any boosters. For additional information on pet vaccinations, please check out our current specials. Remember, preventing disease is much easier and more cost-effective than treating or curing an illness.
Protecting your pet from fleas, ticks, and heartworm is also crucial. Because some parasites are contagious to people, we recommend routine blood and fecal screenings to keep your entire family safe. We can counsel you on which products are right for your pet; please do not attempt to administer parasite prevention without consulting a veterinary professional.
Pet Wellness Through Screening
Speaking of screenings, we may run certain diagnostics during your pet’s routine wellness exam. This may include a urinalysis or blood chemistry panel.
Other aspects of pet wellness include the following:
- Pet dental care
- Physical and mental stimulation
- Behavior and socialization
- Pain management
- Supportive medications
Pet Wellness Begins Early
Spaying or neutering a young pet has many advantages. It not only decreases the occurrence of unwanted pets in our community, but it also provides lifelong benefits to your pet. “Fixed” pets have lower risks of mammary or testicular cancer. Plus, this simple surgery can cut down on your pet’s desire to roam, fight, or mark territory.

Doctor Tullio is a kind, caring gentleman who has cared for my cocker spaniels for many years now. He has always been helpful‚ honest‚ and understanding with my pets and me. He is a man I trust completely and have and do refer others to him. Any pet owner can feel safe and secure in trusting their beloved pets to his skilled hands.

Molly and Oscar have been patients of Dr. Tullio for several years. I have been very pleased with his care‚ his expertise‚ and his understanding with my two Wheatens. Dr. Tullio has been quick to diagnose any issues and remedy all of the problems we’ve had. I look forward to many more years working with Dr. Tullio. I wish him well in his venture.
When my parents’ dog Kya died very suddenly a few years ago‚ their regular vet was not at work that day. But thankfully‚ Dr. Tullio was and treated my parents and their dog as if he was their doctor for the past 15 years—doing everything he could to try and revive Kya and by being so compassionate to my parents in the waiting room after having to deliver the sad news. We truly can’t say enough nice things about Dr. Tullio and can’t wait for him to open his new facility! Thank you.
