Pet Wellness: Preventive & Protective Care

Cat being examined

South Des Moines Veterinary Center offers complete wellness and preventive care designed for each pet’s specific needs. Our knowledgeable and caring veterinarians will create a customized pet wellness plan that considers all aspects of your pet’s health. The wellness plan includes the following:

  • A thorough physical exam
  • Age and lifestyle appropriate vaccinations
  • Fecal and heartworm tests for dogs

Additionally, we will take time to discuss questions you may have about your pet’s health. Based on your pet’s exam, we will make recommendations to keep your pet healthy in areas such as:

Pet Vaccinations

Pet vaccines are a safe and effective way to protect your pets and keep them healthy. We will develop a customized vaccination schedule that considers your pet’s lifestyle, overall health, risk for exposure to infectious disease, and other factors. In order to provide for the health and safety of all of the pets at the veterinary center, our boarding, grooming, and doggy day care programs require a current exam and the following vaccinations:

  • Dogs — rabies, DHPP, tracheobronchitis, influenza
  • Cats — rabies, FVRCP

Pet Microchip

We administer microchips at our veterinary center. A pet microchip is a permanent form of pet ID tag. This simple procedure implants a small microchip, about the size of a grain of rice, under your pet’s skin. The microchip can be scanned by veterinarians and animal control officers and can ensure that your pet is quickly identified and returned to you.

We welcome new clients. Please contact us to schedule an appointment or visit our veterinary center. We look forward to meeting you and your pet.
