Wellness exams are intended to evaluate your pet through regular check-ups. They allow your veterinarian to get a complete picture of your pet's overall health and screen for routine but potentially problematic diseases. During the check-up exam, the veterinarian will evaluate your pet from head to toe. They will evaluate the eyes, nose, mouth, teeth, gums, heart, lungs and all other structures down to the tail. They will look for any lumps or recent growths on the skin and give you a comprehensive list of their findings. An exam is also an excellent time to discuss any changes in your pet's behavior, nutritional advice and other health issues. Any concerns you have or your pet's overall well being should and will be discussed at this visit.
Mulnix Animal Clinic also offers new puppy and kitten exams, which include advice about nutrition and training for your new family member.
Microchipping your pet is an excellent means of minimizing the potential risk of losing your pet if he or she ever runs away from home. A small microchip, about the size of a grain of rice, is implanted underneath your pet's skin. Usually, the microchip is placed between the shoulder blades. The procedure is similar to that of administering a vaccine and is simple and fairly benign. Information regarding your pet (name, address, birth date, etc) is then entered in a national database. Should your pet become lost, a veterinary hospital or animal shelter can use a specially designed scanner to read the information on the microchip and help your pet get home. Ask us about microchipping your pet next time you are at our clinic.
Annual Lab Work
Annual lab screening allows our veterinarians to gather a better picture of your pet’s baseline health. These results can be used for comparison when your pet is feeling under the weather or even detect early signs of some medical conditions that can be treated preemptively. Getting ahead of a disease process can help prolong the life of your pet. Our health care team members will recommend doing your pet’s annual wellness screening during their wellness exam to capture the whole picture of your pet’s health.
Vaccinations are designed to help protect your pets from diseases. Mulnix Animal Clinic believes in creating a customized vaccination schedule for your pet to help reduce the administration of excess vaccinations. We also use vaccines that that contain 50% less volume than traditional vaccines to help make it a more comfortable experience for you and your pet. Even though the vaccines contain less volume they are just as effective. The vaccines also have the benefit of "PureFil technology" which helps decrease the chance of vaccine reactions by reducing the amount of extraneous proteins and cellular debris. Mulnix Animal Clinic wants to help protect your pets and make the vaccination process as safe, stress free and comfortable as possible.
Fleas, ticks, and internal parasites are a nuisance to you and your cat or dog. Many parasites can be transmitted from your pet to your human family members. Getting your pet’s stool checked annually is a great way to catch infestations affecting your pet. Early detection brings early treatment and prevention of secondary disease processes due to external and internal parasites. Mulnix Animal Clinic offers both flea and tick prevention, as well as medication for internal/external parasites.
In addition to external and internal parasites, Heartworm is found in all 50 states of the United States including Colorado. The American Heartworm Society (AHS) recommends yearly testing and giving heartworm prevention all year round.
At Mulnix Animal Clinic we offer your pet the best parasite prevention to protect your pet.
