Here at Pet Wellness Center, we are very passionate about, not only providing the best veterinary care in the area, but also educating our clients on possible health risks their pet’s may be facing. Some of the most prevalent in our area are heartworms and intestinal parasites. During the month of May, we are giving our patients FREE heartworm testing (dogs only) and FREE fecal examinations with any regular office call. Our hope is that by providing this service for free to our clients, we can bring awareness to the importance of year-round prevention for all pets and bring the percentage of pets in the area infected with parasites down. Please call to schedule your appointment today!
* Free heartworm testing is only made available to canines as risk in felines is substantially lower in our area. Free fecal examinations are offered to both canines and felines. This offer is only available to patients who are having a regular examination performed as well.
