Wellness Care

At Beagle’s Bay, we sincerely believe that keeping our patients feeling their best is much better than treating illness. We offer a full range of services designed to keep your pet healthy. After performing a thorough physical examination of your pet, Dr. Gaia will work with you to create the ideal wellness plan for your special pet, including vaccinations, flea and tick prevention, heartworm prevention, weight loss and nutritional services and preventive screening labwork.

Dr. Gaia follows the latest vaccination guidelines from the American Animal Hospital Association and the American Association of Feline Practitioners to keep your pet well protected without the risk of any unnecessary or excessive vaccinations. Our staff will discuss your pet’s individual risk factors for illness, medical history and any special concerns you may have, and then administer the right vaccines for your pet. Best of all, our unique Free Vaccines For Life program, the only one of its kind in our region, makes vaccination extremely affordable for all pets.

Fleas and ticks are a major threat to our pets, and can even cause disease in humans. At Beagle’s Bay, we offer the latest, safest and most effective medications to keep your cats and dogs free of these pesky parasites.

Heartworm disease is far too common in our region, and can be deadly to dogs without costly treatment. Luckily, for just a few dollars a month, we can safely and effectively prevent heartworm disease in your pet; we have options for every patient.

Many of our pets are overweight or obese. Obesity is just as serious a risk for pets as it is for humans—joint pain, back pain, diabetes, heart and lung problems, digestive issues and even behavior changes can all be consequences of excess weight. If Dr. Gaia determines that your pet is too heavy, our entire team is trained to help you get him or her back to a healthy weight in a safe, comfortable way. From special foods to complimentary weigh-ins at our clinic, we have the tools to make your pet a weight-loss success story.

Of course, not all illnesses are easy to see on examination. That’s why we offer a full range of laboratory testing options, from heartworm and tickborne-illness screening tests to special wellness test panels designed to detect diseases early. Our comprehensive in-house laboratory means that in most cases, we’ll have your pet’s test results before your appointment ends!

At Beagle’s Bay, we’re not just a veterinary team, we’re also pet owners ourselves! We understand the special love between humans and pets, and we pledge to care for your pets the same way we do our own. Is your dog the nervous sort? Would your kitty rather stay inside his carrier than see the vet? No problem—we are always happy to take extra time (and give lots of yummy treats) to make your pet’s visit pleasant and stress-free.
