It is that time again. Time for Stormie’s wellness visit. Well, actually it was way past time for his visit, but you know me and how crazy life has been for us lately. After my orthodontist appointment, I picked up Stormie who had been playing in the wet grass and took him in. Poor thing. There was no sign of the bath I had given him only two days before. He looked a bedraggled mess, and I cringed a little expecting a tongue lashing as I have often received at the dentist office…ahem. But the staff at Banfield Pet Hospital® were awesome. They gave me lots of helpful advice about how to take better care of Stormie without being in anyway condescending.
My local Banfield Pet Hospital® is located inside our Petsmart store. I am always a little worried about entering a veterinarian office with other animals. I love that there is so much room to walk around and distance myself from other animals if need be. My dogs tend to be protective and Stormie is no different. He kept growling at the big dogs! Cracked me up.
Stormie received all of his vaccinations and heart worm testing. They all came included in the Banfield Optimum Wellness Plan®!
Banfield Optimum Wellness Plan®:
· Heartworm testing can be administered during a routine office visit. Office visits are always free through Banfield’s Optimum Wellness Plan®, and many plans include annual heartworm tests.
· Banfield believes in preventive veterinary care as the best way to improve the quality and longevity of a pet’s life by reducing the risk of developing serious, costly and sometimes fatal diseases, such as heartworm disease.
· Banfield’s Optimum Wellness Plans can be customizable based on the needs of the individual pet, and combine physical exams, routinely recommended vaccinations and screenings, unlimited free office visits, service discounts and more into one affordable veterinary care package.
Did you know that there is a six month injection heart worm preventative available? I was thrilled to learn about ProHeart® 6. It can be prescribed to healthy dogs over the age of 6 months, and delivers six months of protection in a single dose! A number of years ago my dog got heartworms, and it was the saddest thing. Treatment was so hard on my poor doggie to say nothing of expensive. Still as hard as I try to remember, I still find myself forgetting to give my dogs their heart worm preventative on time. Watch this video for more about heartworm.
