Wellness Care

At the DMVC, preventing illness in pets is our primary mission. Just like you, we want your pet to live the longest, healthiest life possible. That starts with the basics: quality food, enough exercise, good grooming, and regular check-ups.

Annual exams are your pet’s first line of defense. Down Maine Veterinary Clinic’s comprehensive annual exams include checking your pet’s overall health by taking their temperature, examining their skin and coat, and evaluating their lung and cardiac function. The vet will also assess their skeletal and muscle health, palpate their abdomen to check for abnormalities, and evaluate their eyes, ears, nose, and mouth. We recommend all pets be on heartworm, flea, and tick preventatives year-round. Consistently bringing your pet in for wellness and preventative care allows our veterinarians to monitor their health closely and detect any concerns as early as possible. And the sooner we find and address any issues, the better the outcome will be.
