Wellness Exams

No need to worry. We have you covered.

Pet health begins with preventive healthcare. Southwoods Animal Hospital recommends annual wellness examinations for young to early middle aged pets. Semi-annual veterinary exams are recommended on senior dogs and cats over 8 years of age. Semi-annual exams ensure that your pet’s health is always professionally monitored.
