Animals age quicker than we do. A yearly exam for pets is the equivalent of a person going to the doctor every several years. Making sure your pets receive comprehensive physical exams on an annual basis is imperative. Our thorough exam process checks to ensure that your pet’s body system is aging appropriately, because subtle changes often have major implications for your pet’s health.
Not all pets have the same vaccination needs. In fact, some pets are more “at risk” for certain diseases. Vaccination protocols are constantly changing, and need to reflect your pet’s particular risks and environment. The staff at Ehlers Animal Care will gladly spend time discussing with you the appropriate protocol for your pet.

Due to the ability of animals to react positively to treatments such as chemotherapy, pets treated at Ehlers Animal Care are often able to respond without negative side effects and have an extended quality life.
