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 Coit Hedgcoxe Animal Hospital, we believe the best way to ensure this happens is by making a commitment to their ongoing wellness. By bringing your pet in for regular checkups, you’ll help protect him or her from many of the common ailments that can affect companion 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 furry 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’ll also develop and implement a customized preventative care plan tailored to your best friend’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 loved one’s life.

 

Getting to Know You

Finally, annual visits give all of us at Coit Hedgcoxe Animal Hospital 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 little critter enjoy many wonderful years. The team at Coit Hedgcoxe Animal Hospital would love to help you achieve that goal. Call today to get started!

      I have worked with several different veterinarians over the years and this, by far, is the best place and has the best people to work for. I love the family environment here and your pet is treated like one of the family, not a number. Dr. Michalk has the most gentle hands and bedside manner. She takes her time and will answer all your questions before you leave. I know my pet is worth that.

      My dogs and cats don’t go anywhere else but to see Dr Michalk. It’s been over 20 years now and I seriously feel as though we’re all family. Shawna once said about Chad, “he doesn’t speak people. Only animal.” That’s how I feel about the whole staff

      Dr. Michalk is very knowledgeable with many years of experience and has a great bedside manner with her clients and their owners! She takes her time to examine, evaluate and assess your fur baby and explains what is or could be going on with your pet. She always throughly explains her plan of care. There are many veterinarians in Texas but only one Dr. Shelley Michalk who gives the best veterinary care!!! This is why me & my mom drive from Austin to Plano...just to receive her expertise and loving veterinary care!!! Thank you Dr. Michalk for all that you do for each of your clients and their owners!��
