At Community Animal Hospital in the Grafton, Westborough, and Shrewsbury communities, it is our goal to provide the highest quality veterinary service, the most advanced techniques, and the most compassionate care for our patients and their owners. As a team, we strictly adhere to AVMA guidelines in terms of the wellness programs that we advocate. We firmly believe in providing the best possible treatment for every one of our patients. As a result, we offer regular, ongoing pet wellness care, including annual health checks for pets of all ages and comprehensive blood work for senior pets. These exams are performed in order to ensure that we maintain a standard of health, and also catch any potential illnesses early.
Early identification of problems is a very important precursor to successful treatment. One of the best ways to ensure that each of our patients lives the longest, healthiest, and happiest life possible is to prevent health problems before they occur. We understand that prevention is not only the most effective but also the most affordable means of accomplishing this goal. We recommend yearly visits that include:
- Physical pet examinations
- Dental pet examinations
- Pet vaccinations
- Diagnostic testing, as needed
Our annual healthcare visits often begin with the discussion of each patient’s detailed medical history. This enables our team to understand more about the lifestyle of your pet, and also to gather important information about your pet’s baseline health. This knowledge is very important when choosing vaccinations for our individually tailored immunization plan.
Tick-borne illnesses are very common in our area and we are huge advocates of preventatives. In addition to inoculations, we recommend flea, tick and heartworm preventatives to be administered regularly. Our yearly exams also include diagnostic tests to check for heartworm.
For your convenience, we also provide the following services in addition to our annual pet wellness care:
- Emergency pet services
- Internal pet medicine
- A fully stocked in-house pharmacy
- Home Again microchipping and enrollment
Your pet’s health is very important to us and we are committed to providing the best care possible at all times. Our relationship with local veterinary specialists assures you that even if there is a problem that needs more detailed attention, you will receive that special care promptly. If you have any questions about your pet’s health, please contact our team and we will be happy to help.
