Pet wellness care is one of the cornerstones of helping New York City’s dogs and cats live out long, happy lives. We recommend routine physical examinations for every pet, so families can stay on top of their care and make the necessary changes to improve their quality of life. Healthy dogs and cats should visit a Heart of Chelsea Veterinary Group location once a year for their wellness check, and senior pets and/or pets with chronic illness should see us at least every 6 months, so we can monitor their condition. It’s a pleasure for us to see your pet regularly so we can touch base, answer your questions, and send you and your best friend home with a clean bill of health!

What Pet Wellness Care Includes
Your pet’s wellness visit typically includes the following treatments and tests:
- A thorough physical examination from nose to tail, checking for abnormalities
- Evaluation of the heart and lungs
- Body weight measurement and temperature check
- Blood and fecal testing to screen for parasites and disease
- A review of your pet’s vaccination schedule (and providing boosters as needed)
- Chest X-rays (recommended for senior pets)
Pet Wellness Care Strengthens Your Bond
Pet wellness care is proactive care. Staying on top of your pet’s health and treatments can bring you both closer together. Wellness visits are also an opportune time to touch base with us so we can get to know you better and provide answers to any pressing questions you have. And while we enjoy educating pet owners, we also love learning more about you and your pet!
