Why Do a Wellness Exam Package?

In November 2013, Pipsqueak, a 7-year old terrier mix, came in for a routine senior exam and bloodwork. Our doctors caught something on the wellness bloodwork that they would not have discovered until much later: A rare type of cancer. An ultrasound confirmed the diagnosis a few days later.

Stories like Pipsqueak’s are why we are so dedicated to preventive care through our comprehensive wellness packages.
