Wellness Exams for Pets in Greenville Leads to Longer, Happier Lives
Pets are a part of the family, and we all want to enjoy their company for as long as possible. Even though they lead shorter lives than we do, we can help maximize their lifespan with regular health checkups. At Greenville Animal Hospital, we emphasize pet wellness exams and care as an essential part of long-term health care.
What Pet Wellness Looks Like
Healthy pets have an ideal weight, few or no behavior problems, have clean teeth and healthy gums, are playful and happy, free of parasites and internal diseases, and are up-to-date on vaccinations and parasite prevention. That is a lot to keep up with, and you can’t do it all on your own! That’s where we come in. Our wellness services are designed to cover all of your pet’s needs.

Services for Our Area: Heartworm and Tick-Borne Illness
The Greenville area, and indeed, Michigan as a whole, has a serious problem with heartworms and ticks. Both are very wide-spread and threaten pets with dangerous diseases. Treating heartworm disease or any tick-borne illness such as Lyme disease or Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever is very costly for you and very stressful for your pet. Consistent preventatives solve these problems by preventing them in the first place.
Our solutions for heartworms and ticks include:
- ProHeart 6 - a single injection for dogs that is an effective preventative for heartworm for an entire 6 months.
- Lyme vaccine - an annual vaccination that protects dogs who are commonly outdoors from this tick-borne illness.
- Revolution Plus - a monthly 6-in-1 preventative that protects your cat from heartworms and ticks as well as fleas, roundworms, hookworms, and ear mites
- Vectra 3D - a broad-spectrum parasite control for dogs that protects from a total of 6 parasites including fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, mites, biting flies, and lice.
- Simparica - a monthly chewable tablet for dogs that protect against fleas and ticks.
