Wellness Is a Way of Life
Imagine how wonderful it would be if your pet could go their whole life without getting sick! While that probably isn’t possible, we can certainly do our best to keep your four-legged friend in peak condition from puppy/kittenhood through their senior years. The key is to make sure they come in annually for their wellness exam, vaccinations, and any other treatments recommended by our veterinarians. Pet wellness exams play a significant role in your loved one’s life-long healthcare program, and change over time to suit their needs as they age.
At Fairview Hospital for Animals in Decatur, we’re committed to keeping your pet well for life—they’re just as much a part of our family as they are yours! Our skilled veterinary team and top-of-the-line facility are well-equipped to provide preventative health care and manage any illnesses that arise in your pet.

Fleas, ticks, and heartworms can cause serious problems for your pet if they’re not taking monthly preventatives. Ticks can spread various diseases, including Lyme disease and Ehrlichiosis, with just one bite. If your dog is likely to encounter ticks in their environment, we can administer the Lyme vaccine to give them added protection.
In addition, we can perform diagnostic testing of your pet’s blood and/or fecal matter for signs of infection so that we can start them on the proper treatment. Once they’re parasite-free, we’ll suggest the appropriate parasite control products to keep them safe from disease. To ensure that your pet remains healthy and protected, we recommend keeping your pet on preventatives all year round.
Through December 31st, we are offering a $15 rebate on Seresto collars that protect dogs and cats against fleas and ticks. This offer is limited to 2 rebates per household.
Wellness is More Than Just a Vet Visit
Pet wellness exams involve more than just a standard physical check-up, though nose-to-tail exams are a necessary part of wellness care. As the above listed services show, pet wellness is a comprehensive, lifetime plan that our veterinarians will develop with you to maintain your pet’s good health through every life stage. Here at our animal hospital in Decatur, it’s our goal to be here for you and your pet companion through all of those stages.
