Pet Adult and Senior Wellness Care

Your pet’s deserve the best treatment all throughout their life into their golden years. At Marion Animal Hospital, we focus on supporting your pet’s well-being with age.

Pet Adult and Senior Wellness Care

Marion Animal Hospital‘s senior wellness program aims to bridge the gap between routine veterinary care and the end of life. We consider all dogs and cats 7 years of age or older to be seniors and recommend twice yearly examinations for early detection of disease and to optimize health.

Our revolutionary approach to senior pet care is holistic, working with your local veterinarian and any veterinary specialist who cares for your senior pet.

Vaccination Programs

Canine influenza Vaccine is now available for dogs at Marion Animal Hospital! We recommend all dogs receive this vaccine.

Pets today can live longer, healthier lives than ever before—in part because of vaccines that help protect them from deadly infectious diseases. Over the years, vaccines against dangerous diseases have saved millions of pets and virtually eliminated some fatal diseases that were once common. Unfortunately, many infectious diseases still pose a significant threat to dogs and cats that are unvaccinated. Although vaccine programs have been highly successful and vaccines are considered routine today, we (as caregivers) and you (as pet parents) cannot afford to become complacent about keeping pets up-to-date on their vaccinations.

Many vaccines are available for use in dogs and cats, but not every pet needs every available vaccine. Some vaccines are considered core vaccines and should be administered to all pets, whereas other vaccines are optional and may be recommended for pets based on various factors, such as their risk for exposure to disease. Vaccine recommendations can also change throughout a pet’s life, as travel habits and other variables change. We will consider all these factors as we determine which vaccines your pet should have.

Prevention Services

At Marion Animal Hospital, we believe that it is much easier to prevent diseases than it is to treat them. We also believe that every patient is an individual and has a unique set of circumstances that may inform us in what their specific preventative care needs might be. We may consider breed, age, lifestyle, health status, diet, reproductive status, and even the accompanying human preference. We believe that medicine is not a “one size fits all” practice. As such, each patient will receive a tailored approach to best meet his or her preventative care needs.

We take a team oriented approach, aiming to educate and empower you, our clients, to make the most educated decisions regarding your pets’ care based on a variety of factors.
