Elevate Your Pet’s Well-Being with Wellness Visits at Northlake Animal Hospital

Our mission at Northlake Animal Hospital is to help every pet achieve overall wellness. To us, health encompasses a healthy lifestyle that doesn’t just include primary medical care. It means keeping your pet protected from disease, comfortable, and happy. We strive to keep your pet at its optimal level of wellness through our effective preventative testing and diagnostics. Our comprehensive pet wellness program focuses on preventive care tailored to your pet’s needs. Regular wellness visits include thorough physical exams, vaccinations, parasite control, dental care, and nutritional guidance.


Dogs and cats must be vaccinated before the first six or eight weeks of life. Regular vaccination is then required throughout their lives to protect them against several diseases and infections. Northlake Animal Hospital is proud to offer a wide selection of core and non-core vaccinations for cats and dogs.


Parasites are both familiar and dangerous threats to your pet’s health. Dogs and cats can acquire them from dirt, bugs, or lizards when they hunt or play. Regular fecal testing helps us keep track of the presence of any intestinal parasite and facilitates treatment to eliminate them. Common parasites include:

  • Hookworms
  • Roundworms
  • Coccidia
  • Tapeworms
  • Whipworms
  • Giardia

Many diseases won’t appear on a scan or a fecal test. Blood work is vital for catching diseases and keeping track of essential chemicals in your pet’s body. By checking the blood, we can examine the state of blood cells, chemistry, and even the workings of internal organs.

Wellness Plan

Northlake Animal Hospital strives to make excellent pet healthcare affordable and convenient. From experience and education, we know that prevention is always cheaper and more effective than treatment once a disease takes hold. Our wellness plan offers customizable coverage options that bring your pet all the treatments and services they need at a friendly monthly price. We have designed this plan to be effective for every pet owner!


If left untreated, heartworm can become life-threatening. Unfortunately, the volume of mosquitoes in South Florida makes this disease extremely common. Keeping your pet safe requires regular heartworm testing and medication, and we strongly recommend an annual examination to ensure this parasite has not taken hold. We offer effective monthly medicines that can protect your dog’s heartworm from appearing in the first place.


Pets tend to age much faster than we do, which means they reach certain physical milestones faster and can face health issues regularly in adulthood. Instead of seeing the doctor once a year as a human would, you should take your pet to the veterinarian semi-annually. This will help avoid potential health issues and receive proper treatment when your furry friend needs it most.


Fleas and ticks are pesky bugs that make a home and meal out of your pet’s skin. Not only are they annoying and uncomfortable, but they can be dangerous as they are known to carry dangerous diseases. Northlake Animal Hospital offers several preventative treatments and medications that can help keep these invaders far away from your furry friend.
