Annual Wellness Examinations

Yearly wellness examinations give your veterinarian in Troy, MO, the opportunity to get to know you and your pet. They also monitor your pet’s health over time and keep your pet healthy by detecting any problems before they cause serious health issues.

At the Animal Medical Center of Troy, annual wellness exams include:

  • A comprehensive physical exam
  • Vaccine updating
  • Blood work (if recommended)
  • Heartworm testing
  • Discussion of heartworm, flea, and tick prevention

Puppy and Kitten Care

Puppies and kittens are more than just small dogs and cats. They need special care to ensure that they will grow into happy and healthy adults.

During your first puppy or kitten visit, we’ll discuss everything you need to know to keep your pet healthy, including diet, vaccinations and spaying/neutering. We’ll also provide you with a vaccine schedule and a vaccine book to keep track of upcoming vaccination appointments.

If you elect to have your puppy or kitten spayed or neutered, blood work can be done at the time of surgery to check for any issues related to genetics or breed that will require periodic monitoring in the future.

Needed and recommended vaccines include:

For puppies: Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, Parainfluenza, Corona (DHPPC), and Bordetella (kennel cough). Also recommended are the canine influenza vaccine and the Lyme disease vaccine.

 

For kittens: Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus and Panleukopenia (FVRCP), and Feline Leukemia. Also recommended is the Lyme disease vaccine.

Animal Medical Center of Troy Vaccinations

Flea and Tick Prevention

Fleas and ticks do more than make your pet uncomfortable; they can also pose a threat to your pet’s health—and even your own. In our area, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and Lyme disease, both transmitted by ticks, can be especially dangerous to your pet.

At the Animal Medical Center of Troy, we offer a number of highly effective options for flea and tick prevention, including:

  • Credelio – 30 day flea/tick chewable tablet for canines
  • Bravecto – 90 day chewable tablet for flea/tick for canines
  • Bravecto Plus – 2 month topical solution for flea/tick/heartworms in felines

  • Revolution – one month topical fleas and heartworms for canines and felines

Heartworm Prevention

Heartworm is a serious and potentially fatal disease transmitted by mosquitoes and is much easier to prevent than it is to treat.

At the Animal Medical Center of Troy, we offer a number of heartworm preventives, including:

  • Interceptor Plus – one month chewable tablet for heartworms, roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, tapeworms for canines
  • Heartgard plus – one month chewable tablet for heartworms, hookworms and ascarids for canines
  • Simparicia trio – 30 day chewable tablet for flea/tick/ heartworm, hookworms, roundworms for canines
  • Evolution – one month topical fleas and heartworms for canines and felines

Senior Pet Care

Whether you have adopted an older dog or cat or you have had your senior pet since he or she was a puppy or kitten, older pets need special care to remain healthy and enjoy life throughout their golden years.

As your pet grows older, seeing the vet on a regular basis becomes increasingly important; to monitor your pet’s overall health, detect any changes and address any problems before they pose a threat to your pet’s health.

For pets 7 years and older, annual exams are strongly recommended, as is a complete bloodwork panel to identify health issues and monitor known genetic predispositions.

Special Help for your Senior Pet

We offer six Laser Treatments for $133.25. Just like humans, pets can develop aches and pains as they grow older. These symptoms can have a negative impact on their quality of life by affecting mobility and overall enjoyment of life. Laser therapy provides a safe, pain-free, non-surgical way to alleviate pain and inflammation and speeds the healing of wounds.

We also offer:

  • Pre surgical bloodwork
  • Full mouth dental radiographs
  • Scaling and polishing
