Wellness & Vaccinations

 

Do you want to know the secret to helping your pet enjoy a long, happy and healthy life?

As loving pet parents, we want our animal companions by our side for as many years as possible. At Willow Bend Animal Clinic, we believe the best way to ensure this happens is by making a commitment to their ongoing wellness. By scheduling regular checkups for your pet or livestock, you’ll help protect against many of the common ailments that can affect animals. You’ll also give us the opportunity to identify and address potential health problems early, before they have chance to develop and worsen. These simple things can add years to your animal family member’s life.

 

An Ounce of Prevention

Our wellness services are comprehensive and extremely thorough, because we want to do everything in our power to keep your loved one healthy. At each visit, the doctor will examine your pet from nose to tail, looking for anything out of the ordinary. We will also develop and implement a customized preventative care plan tailored to your pet’s unique needs, lifestyle and risk factors. This will include vaccines, parasite control, nutrition and weight management and anything else we deem relevant to your companion.

 

Ongoing Health Management

Wellness visits also provide us with regular snapshots of your pet’s health status at each appointment. We can then compare this information against previous exams to identify any changes. This allows us to detect the signs of illness early and develop an effective treatment plan in a timely manner. With many ailments, an early diagnosis can vastly improve the outcome for your pet. The more we stay on top of these things, the better chance we’ll have of extending and improving the quality of your companion’s life.

 

Getting to Know You

Finally, annual visits give all of us at Willow Bend Animal Clinic the chance to truly get to know you and your pet. Developing a relationship with you and forging a bond with your animal friend is an integral part of the care we provide. This allows us to partner with you in managing your loved one’s health, and also makes visiting the vet a more positive experience. The more we understand your companion’s needs, the more precisely and effectively we can develop a health care plan.

You want to see that special creature enjoy many wonderful years. We’d love to help you achieve that goal. Call us today and let’s get started!

 

    • Katherine HuntKatherine Hunt

      Dr. Hunt saved my dog when vets in the emergency animal clinic in Memphis refused to treat her without $4000 up front for the surgery, X-ray and one night stay. He did a life saving surgery in the middle of the night with no hesitation. The bill was less than half of the other offices quote and that was after surgery, meds and 2 overnight stays. Very nice staff that kept me up to date on every step of my pups care!

    • Rachel Sell ThomasRachel Sell Thomas

      We usually go to the New Albany office and see Dr Hunt or Dr Childers but our new puppy had gotten really sick during the Christmas holiday and Dr Thompson was the vet on call, if it wasn’t for him, his son Josh and caring staff, our sweet Henleigh wouldn’t be with us. Dr. Thompson never gave up on her and did everything he could to get her well. Everyone at both Willow Bend and New Albany Animal Clinic are wonderful and care for our fur babies as if they were their own.

      Dr. Hunt and Dr. Dunaway have always been so awesome. Front desk girls are also very welcoming. When strays find you on the regular, a good vet is a must!

      Dr. Thompson was there for us on that fateful Saturday night when we lost our little fur child Frankie. We couldn't have asked for a more kind and caring doctor. I just want to say thank you for going above and beyond for us! It really means a lot!
