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 Lakewood Animal Clinic, 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 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 four-legged friend’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 pet’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 companion’s life.

 

Getting to Know You

Finally, annual visits give all of us at Lakewood Animal Clinic 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 guy or gal enjoy many wonderful years. At Lakewood Animal Clinic, we’d love to help you achieve that goal. Call us today and let’s get started!

      Been to several different vets around Jacksonville in the past 20 years- recommendations from friends, family referrals, and even accompanying someone else and their pet- NONE compare to Dr. Sandler and his staff! I won't take my Zoi anywhere else! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! My only wish is that I found them YEARS ago! Kind, patient, welcoming, educated, knowledgeable, and they take time to explain everything in layman's terms. Also affordable- worth every penny!!! There was no pressure of sales or rushing me along. Thank you Dr. Sandler AND staff! You'll be seeing more of us 💗

      Very happy with our most recent visit where our Italian Mastiff needed to have his nails trimmed, ears cleaned and blood drawn. Everyone had a smile on their face (as well as sweat) after wrestling with our beast as he is not one to sit idly by...The Dr was observant and was frank and honest which we appreciated.

      I've been pleased with the service I've received here. My cats had not been to the vet since I moved to the Jacksonville area, since they are indoor cats... Read More
