Keeping Your Pet Healthy Has Never Been Easier or More Convenient for You
At Dallas Animal Urgent Care, we are strong believers in wellness care for dogs and cats. Regular wellness exams, early detection of diseases, and age-specific assessments help keep your pet healthy for a longer, happier life. Many pets, especially cats, are good at hiding signs that something is wrong, so subtle changes in their health or behavior might be overlooked without preventive care.
Your veterinarian may not be available for several weeks or you may have a new job with new working hours. This is why we provide on-demand wellness care for pets.
Our wellness exams take a preventative approach in helping your pet stay healthy and enjoy a quality life. We recommend regular exams for your pet, which include nose-to-tail evaluations and age-appropriate wellness assessments.
Puppy & Kitten Care
Do you have a new puppy or kitten? Congratulations! It is a good idea to schedule an initial exam for your new pet as soon as possible to be sure your new pet is healthy and up to date on their vaccines. We can also help you learn the basics of good veterinary care for your new pet to be sure your new pet gets off to a healthy start! We can discuss spaying or neutering, microchipping, and how to make sure your new pet gets all the vitamins and minerals they need.
Senior Pet Care
As pets enter their senior years, they require specialized care and age-specific diagnostic testing to stay healthy and extend longevity. As your pet ages, our veterinarians can help you identify early warning signs and take the necessary precautions to keep your senior pet healthy and happy.
Vaccinating your pet is very important. Vaccines protect against many viral and bacterial infections. During your pet’s wellness exam, our veterinarians will provide any needed vaccines, provide vaccination education, and discuss the appropriate vaccine schedule for your pet with you.
Parasite Prevention & Control
Flea, tick, heartworm, and other parasite prevention is needed all year long to keep your pet healthy. Many parasites cause serious illness or even death if left untreated. Some pet owners are not even aware when their pet is infected, which is why prevention is so important. We require annual heartworm blood testing, which can be performed during your pet’s wellness exam.
Allergies & Dermatology
Itching, scratching, and hot spots are all signs of allergies and skin conditions in pets. Just like humans, pets can be sensitive to irritants that cause them distress. Our team will diagnose and offer treatment for pets with skin-related problems including parasites, allergies, rashes, infections, hair loss, and more. When left untreated, some of these conditions can become serious health concerns.
Dental disease is the most common medical problem seen in pets and can lead to pain, tooth loss, and generalized disease. During your pet’s wellness exam, we will visually examine your pet’s teeth and mouth. When needed, we will recommend routine dental care including exams, x-rays and teeth cleaning.
Our doctors and staff are ready to help you make informed nutrition choices for your pet. From picking a brand, to what ingredients your pet needs, to how much to feed — we are here to help. We offer assistance with special dietary needs, weight loss or gain, age-related nutrition, and nutrition for managing various medical conditions.
