Leon Valley Veterinary Hospital offers a variety of options for keeping your pets healthy through every stage of life. Wellness care focuses on preventing disease, catching and treating developing medical concerns early, and enhancing your pet’s overall condition for maximum health and longevity.

Smart & Affordable Pet Care

Developing a plan for long-term health is a wise decision, covering all the bases for your pet. Such plans allow us to catch and treat problems at the early stage, avoiding unnecessary suffering and the high cost of advanced treatments.

Planning for pet care is good for pet owners, too, as it gives you deep discounts in veterinary services. Finally, continued good health allows you and your pets to enjoy a longer, more rewarding relationship. Isn’t that what pet ownership is all about, after all?

Wellness Testing

Wellness testing helps maintain your pet’s health and prevent disease by promoting early detection and treatment of illnesses. Establishing a baseline, we can closely monitor your pet’s health status annually.

Drawing a small amount of blood and collecting a fresh urine sample can easily determine your pet’s normal baseline. The comprehensive health profile consists of:

  • Complete blood count (CBC)
  • Complete chemistry and electrolytes
  • Thyroid analysis, as needed
  • Urinalysis, as needed
  • Feline AIDS and leukemia test (indoor/outdoor felines only)

We compare these initial baseline results to any abnormal results found later. In annual wellness visits for healthy pets under six years of age, we may only require a mini-screen consisting of a complete blood count and mini-chemistry (liver, kidney, glucose, total protein, and albumin).

Once your pet’s baseline has been established, we continue to monitor these systems with yearly health exams. Health checkups are recommended every six months for pets over six years of age.

The VPI PAWS Wellness System

Leon Valley Veterinary Hospital now offers the VPI PAWS system for pet wellness care. PAWS provides an exclusive online portal that allows you to view your pet’s preventive and wellness care treatment history, track your preventive care services, and update credit card and billing information.

The PAWS system allows our pet owners to enjoy monthly payment plans that help spread the cost of preventive care over time. You can also obtain comprehensive protection for unexpected veterinary care with an optional discounted VPI Pet Insurance policy. Finally, a custom toll-free telephone number is available if you need personal assistance.

The greatest benefit of all, however, is for your pet. Studies have shown that regular preventive care results in detecting and treating diseases earlier, leading to increased longevity and a better quality of life.
