Wellness & Vaccinations

One of the biggest mistakes otherwise caring, responsible pet owners make is to neglect the importance of ongoing wellness care. It’s easy to do – especially when your pet appears to be the picture of health. Is it really necessary to bring them in for a visit, even when they’re not sick?

Simply put, routine wellness care provides the foundation for your pet to enjoy a lifetime of good health.

Why? Because even pets that seem outwardly healthy could be dealing with illness on the inside that could shorten their lifespan if not addressed early. When we are able to examine your pet on a yearly or twice yearly basis, we are better able to prevent and detect disease, thereby increasing the odds of a positive outcome. We’re also able to develop a more personalized health care plan that will keep your pet happy and healthy.

Ocean Breeze Animal Hospital offers comprehensive wellness care for animals of all ages. What makes our wellness care most effective is the way it’s specifically designed to adapt with your pet as he or she ages. Puppies and kittens require a different type of care than adult dogs and cats, as do senior pets. Our goal is to meet you and your pet right where you are at the time of each visit, to provide the most precise, effective care possible.

Wellness visits at Ocean Breeze Animal Hospital are extremely thorough, because we believe that quality care cannot be rushed. Not only will we examine your pet, nose to tail, and provide advice and recommendations regarding such important matters as vaccinations, parasite control, weight management and nutrition, behavior and more, but we’ll also take as much time as necessary to answer your questions and discuss your concerns about your pet. When we work together, your companion will have a much better chance of enjoying a long, healthy life.

One of the most important benefits of regular wellness visits is the fact that they present our experienced doctors with the opportunity to identify potential medical concerns and address them before they can develop into a more serious and costly problem. Many illnesses and diseases that can affect our companion animals can be treated and managed much more effectively if they are caught early. Early detection is also more cost effective for you, since it’s always less expensive to address disease in its earliest stages than to treat it once it’s progressed. Most importantly, this early disease detection can add years to your pet’s life.

Finally, but perhaps most importantly, wellness visits allow our doctors and health care team to get to know you and your pet better. We believe that the most important component of quality veterinary care is the relationships we develop with our clients, and the bonds we share with our patients. When you and your pet come to know and trust us, we are much better able to deliver the customized care and outstanding service you both deserve.

Don’t wait until your pet is ill to bring them in for care. Give them the gift of wellness and improve the chances of sharing many more years of companionship.

      we are newcomers to Ocean Breeze and Ocean Breeze Animal Hospital. Under the worst possible conditions of Corona virus the staff made us feel so comfortable and protected. My yellow lab Buckley was treated with kindness and respect. Dr. DeFabio was informative, thorough and easy to talk to. I welcomed his comforting manner but more importantly so did Buckley.

      Was able to get our dog in quickly. Since we are in the middle of the pandemic they came out to the car and took her in immediately. she was done within a half hour. We were given the needed medication and on our way within the hour. Thank you for the quick service and your caring attitude towards our dog.
