Regular exams and vaccinations are essential for pets. Dogs and cats age at a faster rate than people, so significant changes in health can occur very fast. Wellness programs allow us to detect problems sooner and treat them more effectively. Vaccinations and preventative care can make all the difference! We recommend yearly visits for dogs and cats. Puppies, kittens, senior pets, and pets with health conditions will need a more rigorous schedule for checkups. Contact Narrows Animal Health Center of Brooklyn, NY today to schedule a wellness exam for your puppy, kitten, or full-grown pet.

  • Dogs and cats may not display symptoms until the disease is advance.

  • Senior status varies depending on your pet’s breed and size. Let us help you determine your pet's status!

  • As your pet comes closer to senior status, we recommend a baseline exam, a diagnostic workup, and a more frequent checkup schedule. This allows us to track changes and understand your pet's baseline health.

  • Dogs approach senior status at the age of 7 and cats at the age of 8.

  • We can treat many symptoms of cognitive dysfunction syndrome, which is similar to Alzheimer’s in humans.

  • We can also improve your pet’s quality of life by identifying and reducing pain, recommending a nutrition and exercise plan, and suggesting changes in everyday lifestyle that help in pain prevention.
