Because your pet can not talk and your pet’s age on the average of seven times faster than humans it is really important for your pet to receive an annual check-up.  During an annual exam at Northern Michigan Veterinary Hospital you will first meet with one of our veterinary technicians.  Our technicians will discuss with you the specific needs of your pet in regards to nutrition, hygiene, exercise, and heartworm and flea preventatives.  Your pet will then get a full head-to-tail exam by Dr. Peck as well as a consultation where you will have the opportunity to ask any questions regarding your pet’s health and behavior.


Your pet’s annual check-up may include the following:


·         DHPP Vaccine:  Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus

·         Leptospirosis Vaccine

·         Bordatella

·         Lyme

·         Intestinal Parasite Screen

·         Heartworm Test

·         Wellness Blood Testing

·         Urinalysis

·         Eye (Glaucoma) Test


·         FVRCP:  Feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, panleukopenia

·         Rabies Vaccine

·         Feline Leukemia Test

·         Intestinal Parasite Screen

·         Deworming

Preventative medicine is the best medicine.  We can often detect hidden problems in their early stages before they become obvious to you and before the problem worsens and causes distress to your pet or requires more extensive treatment. 

The kind, compassionate and knowledgeable staff at Northern Michigan Veterinary Hospital is why we are the veterinary clinic Traverse City and surrounding areas have come to know and trust.
