Wellness Plans

Our Wellness Plans are the most essential part of your pet’s health.

petsAny veterinarian can diagnose advanced disease.  The true art of medicine is being able to accurately identify conditions before they become pathological.  This is why our wellness exams are so important, they allow us to find conditions before they become evident.

At AVDH, our goal is to increase your pet’s quality of life and longevity. The best way to ensure your pet has a long, healthy, and happy life is to perform annual wellness testing. Our annual wellness plans are the most affordable and comprehensive annual physical exams available anywhere today. As new technology becomes available, we expand and update these plans.

Our extensive packages utilize lab and diagnostic equipment, which we have in-house to decrease cost. This state of the art equipment allows us to complete thorough workups while you wait. We recommend checking out our annual wellness packages before health concerns arise because we often find and cure conditions that would otherwise go undiagnosed and untreated until it is too late.
