Wellness & Preventive Care
Preventive Veterinary Care in Valdosta, GA
At Northside Animal Hospital, animal care isn’t just our job — it’s our passion. As animal lovers ourselves, we understand that each of our clients’ pets is a valued member of the family. That being said, we strive to provide comprehensive veterinary care, catered specifically to the needs of your furry friend.
At our hospital, we approach animal wellness on the foundation of thorough and comprehensive preventive care. Regular wellness checkups, dental care, routine vaccinations, and regular screenings for diseases are tantamount to the longevity, happiness, and health of your pet.
In order to maintain optimal health, your pet should have a yearly routine wellness exam. These routine checkups are an excellent way for you and your veterinarian to discern your pet’s overall health status and can be a key tool in spotting and preventing medical issues.
During a wellness exam, your veterinarian will perform a number of simple examinations and tests, such as listening to your animal’s heartbeat and lungs, check their teeth and oral cavity, evaluate their vision, examine their ears, examine lymph nodes and skin, palpate your pet’s joint and muscles, and more. They will also perform diagnostic lab testing to test for heartworm, parasites and other common diseases.

We provide unique vaccination schedules that meet the individual needs of your pet. We offer vaccinations for Lyme disease, Leptospirosis, and rattlesnake bites.
