Our veterinarians have taken time to develop comprehensive pet wellness protocols to prevent disease and prolong your pet’s lifespan. We are dedicated to enhancing their quality of life and recommend routine preventative care to achieve this. For puppies and kittens, we begin the recommended vaccination series at eight weeks of age and continue with frequent visits until we can ensure your pet is appropriately protected against disease. In addition to vaccines, we recommend a full physical exam, intestinal parasite screening, and deworming treatments to help prepare your new best friend for a wonderful life.
Adult Pet Wellness Recommendations
We recommend that adult pets (12 months old and up) visit us for their regular dog/cat exam at least once a year. Because pets age faster than humans, it is important to bring them in for exams with our veterinarian to detect any changes in their health as early as possible. During your pet’s annual visit, the veterinarian will perform a full physical exam from snout to tail, administer any necessary vaccinations to protect against illnesses prevalent in our area, and perform an intestinal parasite screening.
North Jersey Animal Hospital is equipped to perform full blood screenings, which we recommend on a yearly basis. Many common diseases can be managed through simple changes in your pet’s regular routine if they are caught early enough.

Our veterinary team is dedicated to prolonging your pet’s life and ensuring their health and happiness. We aim to provide as much information to you as possible and educate you about meeting your pet’s needs and understanding their treatment recommendations.
Comprehensive dog/cat exams are necessary for detecting any subtle abnormalities in your pet, but they do not detail exact illnesses or issues. Monitoring lab parameters through blood analysis and urinalysis allows our veterinarians to detect any significant changes in the functions of internal organs and treat diseases at the earliest stage possible.
