Keeping Columbus Pets Healthy With Preventive Wellness Care

Wellness

Regular wellness exams for your pet are the best way to ensure a long and happy life. During a routine exam, we involve you in learning how to care for your pet’s health. Our veterinarians take the time to explain what we are looking for and to answer any questions you may have.

Our wellness exams are in-depth pet health checks performed by our veterinarian. They include a comprehensive physical exam, internal parasite testing, heartworm and flea control, vaccination program, spaying and neutering, dental review, weight evaluation, and specialized blood tests for all life stages. We recommend that you bring a fresh stool sample (no more than eight hours old) to your wellness exam to test for internal parasites. Please make sure it is in a clean container.

Typically, companion animals should have a wellness exam at least once a year. However, if your pet is experiencing environmental or lifestyle changes, we might recommend you bring him or her in for a wellness exam every six months. You can discuss what type of wellness program best meets your furry friend’s needs with our doctor at your next visit.

As pets age, their medical needs change. We recommend older animals be examined twice a year. It is especially important for seniors that blood work be performed annually to look for any signs of metabolic diseases, such as kidney or liver problems. Conditions such as these, which are common in older pets, can be treated more effectively if detected early.

At Redstone Veterinary Hospital, we are keenly aware of the financial commitment it takes to maintain proper veterinary wellness care. For that reason, we offer a variety of Pet Wellness Plans to make it easier to keep your four-legged family member healthy.

The doctors and staff are so kind and compassionate, treating my pets and I with patience and respect. I feel they all truly understand that my pet is not just an animal, but a beloved family member.

I love coming to Redstone. They are always friendly, always have an answer to our questions, and our dog, Daisy, is always at ease when we come for a visit. This is an excellent hospital.

My dog is very well taken care of here, and he loves going in! We’ve been coming to Redstone for years and won’t go anywhere else. We are known by name, not appointment time.

Dr. Paczosa, Dr. Eisenman, Jean, and the rest of the staff are always so friendly and knowledgeable. We are always greeted by name, including our dogs! They do a great job keeping them happy.

I drive from Lincoln to bring my pets here, and have been coming for years. I have the utmost respect for the veterinarians at Redstone, especially after they saved my dog’s life.

I have never once second-guessed the care Oscar receives at Redstone. It doesn’t matter if I call them at 7:30 in the morning or 11:30 at night. I know he will always receive the best. Thank you!!
