Adult and Senior Wellness Care
Do you schedule well-child visits for your (human) children according to the schedule recommended by your pediatrician? Regular wellness visits for your (furry) children are just as important, and we recommend that your dog or cat visit a veterinarian once a year until they are seven years old, after which we’d like to see them twice a year to care for them as they gracefully age into their golden years.
Powder Paws Veterinary Clinic offers a wide array of services, including preventative care options, diagnostic and treatment plans, and a full pharmacy. We pride ourselves on very low lobby and exam room wait times, and make every effort to keep you and your pet happy during their visit. See below for more information on what services we offer for your pet’s wellness care.
