Unparalleled Wellness Exams for Pets in Chicago
Sometimes we forget that our pets need to see their veterinarian just as regularly as we see our own primary care physicians. Whether you’ve just adopted a new puppy or realized that your cat hasn’t left the house in 10 years, regular visits with their veterinarian are critical.
Pets have a remarkable ability to hide pain and illness. With regular visits, we can identify potential health problems in their earliest stages and provide more effective treatment. Once your puppy or kitten has completed their pediatric visits, we recommend annual wellness exams until about age 7. Once your pet reaches that age, they should see their veterinarian every 6 months.
At West Loop Veterinary Care, we take the time to develop individualized pet wellness care and vaccination programs to suit your pet’s specific needs. For new puppies and kittens, we offer thorough examinations and care guidance to help educate first-time owners.

It’s More Than Just a Routine Visit
Wellness visits aren’t just important for your pet’s health, they’re also key to establishing a lasting relationship with your veterinarian. All of our patients are like family to us, and we want to see them thrive through all their stages of life. Seeing your animal companion on a regular basis also makes it easier for us to pinpoint when something is not normal, and act quickly to correct the problem.
If your pet has a wellness care appointment for the first time in a year, now is the time to ask questions. Whether it’s regarding their diet, their behavior, their coat condition, or all of the above, let’s take advantage of our time together and work out a long-term solution.
