Deerwood Animal Hospital in Hamilton, NJ believes your pet deserves quality veterinary care that protects and maintains their health and wellbeing throughout their lives and not just when they suffer from an illness or injury. That’s why we advocate for regular pet wellness care.
This is a lifelong, comprehensive, and holistic veterinary philosophy that stresses preventive animal health care and the nurturing of both the body and mind through good nutrition and environment.
It includes designing a healthy diet and lifestyle for your pet to keep them strong and vigorous at all ages, and using diagnostic testing to discover disease and congenital defects before they become a serious problem. We’ll work with you to create a custom pet wellness program for your pet based on their age, breed, and physical condition.
