Comprehensive Wellness Care for Pets
Rutherford Veterinary Hospital understands you love your pets, and you want them to live long, happy and healthy lives. As pet owners ourselves, we know the bonds that form between pets and people. Our doctors and staff are committed to creating a personalized wellness program focused on preventative care in a low-stress environment with compassion and open communication. Designing a preventative wellness program includes many factors: your pet’s life stage, environment, nutrition and wellness diagnostic testing.
Wellness care starts with puppy and kitten exams, deworming and vaccinations for often deadly diseases. As your pet grows and matures, it is important to have yearly blood work, thorough physical exams and one-on-one time with our experienced veterinarians to address all of your questions or concerns.
We believe prevention has a great impact later. We focus on nurturing relationships with you and your pet while focusing on life stages and lifestyles. This allows us to structure a vaccination plan or recommend titer testing. It also allows us to work with you to find the right food and supplements and assess risks to decide what tests are best to screen for and catch diseases early.
