Wellness & Vaccinations

Surely you’ve heard the old adage, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. At Palomar Animal Hospital, we believe that preventative medicine and routine wellness care are the greatest gifts we can give our animal companions. Because pets age at a faster rate than humans, it’s important that they be examined on a regular basis. Wellness visits allow us to both manage your pet’s current health, and to monitor that health over time, identifying and addressing any changes as soon as they occur. This can greatly improve the length and quality of your companion’s life. We offer wellness packages for pets of all breeds and ages. Let’s get your cherished friend on the path to a lifetime of good health.

That way we are better able to achieve an accurate diagnosis and treat the problem in a timely manner. The sooner we can have the answers we need, the better the chances of a positive outcome for your pet. Palomar Animal Hospital uses comprehensive diagnostic tools to manage the ongoing health of our patients most effectively.
