Dog Wellness Care in Troy, MI

There’s nothing like the companionship of a dog, and all the joy they can bring to your life. But what you bring to your pet’s life is just as important; they look to you to keep them safe, healthy, and happy. At Animal Wellness Clinic of Troy, we’re dedicated to our role as your pet’s (secondary) caregiver, and being your partner in giving them the best life possible. Dogs aren’t so different from us, they need routine checkups, a balanced diet, and plenty of exercise just like we do in order to thrive.

That’s why we work closely with pet owners to create fully customized dog wellness plans. Every dog is an individual with specific health needs; no two are exactly the same. Our vets in Troy, MI are here to help you understand those needs and meet them to the fullest extent for years to come.

Call us today at (248) 524-0500 or request an appointment online. We look forward to helping you and your canine companion spend as many years as possible together!

What is Essential to My Dog’s Health?

All dogs need food, water, and shelter, but they also need so much more than that. Some of the most essential aspects of your dog’s health care include:

  • Annual wellness visits with their vet, which include a physical exam, blood work, and possible vaccinations
  • Learning house skills and good behaviors
  • Routine dental care and dental exams
  • A balanced, age-appropriate diet (this will change as your pet gets older)
  • Coat brushing and nail trims
  • Daily exercise and play time for physical and mental enrichment
  • A structured schedule for feeding, potty breaks, activity, and downtime
  • Parasite prevention to protect against heartworms, fleas, and ticks (and other pests)

Senior Dog Wellness

When your dog reaches their senior life stage, they will need to see their vet more frequently for checkups. Senior pets are more at risk for conditions such as:

  • Arthritis
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Obesity
  • Vision/hearing loss
  • Incontinence

It’s important that we help you keep your senior dog as comfortable as possible in their daily life. That includes being able to move around your home without difficulty and enjoy regular, low-impact exercise. They will also require a diet that is unique to their age group, as senior dogs do not have the same nutrition needs as adult dogs and puppies.

If you have any questions about how to improve your senior dog’s quality of life, contact us today at (248) 524-0500 .
