VCA Charles Towne Animal Hospital

Adult and Senior Wellness

We recommend a physical exam every six months to recognize any potential health issues and begin treatment before it becomes a serious health problem. Dogs are scheduled for annual and semi-annual visits, while cats are examined annually, unless a problem arises. Remember six months of a pet's life is approximately 3 1/2 years of a human's life.

Part of preventative care is the appropriate immunizations for our cats and dogs. We recommend vaccinations based on the American Animal Hospital Association and the American Association of Feline Practitioners guidelines which are based on each individual pet according to their lifestyle and risk factor. Vaccinating your pet can save them from diseases that are avoidable.

Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet.
