Wellness & Vaccinations

The ultimate goal of any caring pet parent is to help their furry family member enjoy as many happy, healthy years as possible. The most effective way to achieve this goal is by making a commitment to regular wellness care. These routine visits, typically once or twice a year, allow our doctors to both manage your pet’s current health and monitor that health over time. We are able to take preventative measures to protect your companion against many risks and identify the signs of potential medical concerns so they can be addressed right away – before they become a more serious and costly problem. Western Branch Veterinary Hospital provides comprehensive wellness and preventive care for companion animals in all stages of life. Let’s work together to help your loved one enjoy a long, healthy life by your side.

Nutrition & Weight Management

Choosing the right food for your pet involves much more than just finding something that tastes good. The right nutritional balance and a healthy weight play key roles in your pet’s ongoing wellness and can extend the number of years you share together. Diet and exercise can even help to manage certain medical conditions more effectively. Yet, with so many pet food options to choose from, and little information regarding weight control, managing this component of your pet’s health care can be a challenge, even for the most seasoned pet parent. What you need is the help of an expert who understands companion animal nutrition and can provide the guidance you need to help your loved one achieve optimum health for life. The team at Western Branch Veterinary Hospital is prepared to partner with you in this important initiative. Let us develop a customized diet and exercise plan to bring out the very best in your four legged friend.

Laser Therapy

At Western Branch Veterinary Hospital, we are committed to staying on top of all the latest advancements in animal health care. That’s why we’re pleased to offer laser therapy as an additional treatment option to further support the health and wellness of our patients. Laser therapy is a painless, non-invasive and drug free way to treat a wide variety of ailments and injuries in companion animals. The innovative technology uses a high intensity beam of light to penetrate problem areas, triggering the body’s natural healing mechanisms to reduce pain and inflammation, improve mobility and speed the recovery process following surgery or injury. If your loved one suffers from a painful medical condition, recently underwent surgery or became injured, laser therapy may be just the thing he or she needs to recover more quickly and to live a more comfortable life.
