Wellness & Vaccinations

Do you want to know the secret to helping your pet enjoy a long, happy and healthy life?

As loving pet parents, we want our animal companions by our side for as many years as possible. At Paw Prints Animal Hospital, we believe the best way to ensure this happens is by making a commitment to their ongoing wellness. By bringing your pet in for regular checkups, you’ll help protect him or her from many common ailments that can affect companion animals. You’ll also give us the opportunity to identify and address potential health problems early, before they have chance to develop and worsen. These simple things can add years to your furry family member’s life.

 

An Ounce of Prevention

Our wellness services are comprehensive and extremely thorough, because we want to do everything in our power to keep your best friend healthy. At each visit, the doctor will examine your pet from nose to tail, looking for anything out of the ordinary. We’ll also develop and implement a customized preventative care plan tailored to your pet’s unique needs, lifestyle and risk factors. This will include vaccines, parasite control, nutrition and weight management and anything else deemed relevant to your companion.

 

Ongoing Health Management

Wellness visits also provide us with regular snapshots of your loved one’s health status at each appointment. We can then compare this information against previous exams to identify any changes. This allows us to detect the signs of illness early and develop an effective treatment plan in a timely manner. With many ailments, an early diagnosis can vastly improve the outcome for your pet. The more we stay on top of these things, the better chance we’ll have of extending and improving the quality of your companion’s life.

 

Getting to Know You

Finally, annual visits give all of us at Paw Prints Animal Hospital the chance to truly get to know you and your animal companion. Developing a relationship with you and forging a bond with your pet is an integral part of the care we provide. This allows us to partner with you in managing your loved one’s health, and also makes visiting the vet a more positive experience. The more we understand your best friend’s needs, the more precisely and effectively we can develop a health care plan.

You want to see that special little guy or gal enjoy many wonderful years. At Paw Prints Animal Hospital, we’d love to help you achieve that goal. Call us today to get started!

      My dog of 9 years was having very serious problems. I called my usual vet and they could not "fit him in". I called Paw prints around 745 last Wednesday morning, told them what was going on and the receptionist asked that I be there at 830. I took my baby in and it turned out that he was having major complications and the best option for him was not him coming home with me. Dr. Cousins and the nurse that seen my baby were absolutely wonderful. They hugged me, held my hand, even almost cried with me. Even the staff at the desk were so very sweet and gave me their condolences. Although my first visit here wasn't under best circumstances, I am so very thankful that this is where I took my baby. They have since then sent a card thanking me for allowing them to care for my baby and another card with the sweetest message and told me I made the right decision. I will be eternally grateful for their love compassion and care they showed for my baby. Highly thinking about switching and making this my new vets office!

      I have been using Dr. Critten, for 15 years or more as my vet since he started his practice. He and Dr Cousin I would highly recommend. Very good vets.

      After having a relationship and trusting-with our pets to Powdersville Animal For 25 years in April my family experienced an unthinkable error on their part and I could no longer trust their care with my family. With our new Puppy I decided to make the change. I love all three of the vets we have seen, great excellent care. We previously saw Dr. Crittendon when he was with Freddie Zink.

      We were already lifelong believers in Paw Prints. You guys have never, EVER, failed us. Whether it was fixing the mistakes of other vet offices or helping us bring an FIV kitty back to his strength, you have always been reliable. Today, proved even more so the quality of Paw Prints. My family thanks you very much for being who you are. Would I recommend Paw Prints? There is no question! Dr. Cousins, Dr. Crittendon, you both are amazing and Hemmingway looks great and is happy to be back in his yard. :)

      Paw Prints is amazing. I know they truly care about my fur babies. Before coming to Paw Prints, my husband and I took our animals to another vet who would make you feel like you were a terrible person for your pet to be sick or in pain. The final straw was when my youngest cat became very ill and required hospitalization and a blood transfusion. During one of his followups, the vet didn't even come in the room to see if I had questions or concerns. Rather, the tech had to keep running back and forth to get the answers for my questions. This has never happened at Paw Prints. They have reassured me that there are some things that some animals are predisposed to and have offered some suggestions to help with any issues. When blood work had to be done on my older cat, the doctor personally called with the results. Paw Prints is a great place to take your fur babies.

      I was hesitant to have an appointment in the middle of my workday, but they were right on schedule, gave me full attention, and got me back to my office in no time. And I have a very happy 4-legged friend to boot!
