Tailored Pet Wellness Programs in Bristol
Delivering Personalized Care to All Kinds of Pets
Annual wellness testing allows our veterinarians to identify conditions and diseases in your pet before signs may be evident. Additionally, screening tests provide information on what’s “normal” for your pet and allows your vet to quickly evaluate changes in his or her biology.
Pets age roughly five to seven times faster than humans. It’s vital to test every year to screen for diseases and conditions.
By testing, your doctor will be able to identify critical patterns in your pet’s biological make-up. Ultimately, early detection will enable an accurate diagnosis more quickly, potentially saving you thousands of dollars in tests and critical care.

Our Wellness Programs
At Chippens Hill Veterinary Hospital, we have three specially designed wellness programs for dogs and cats.
Puppy & Kitten Wellness (The First Year of Life)
Young dogs and cats deserve extra attention and care, and our Puppy and Kitten Wellness Program provides the advice you need. Our veterinarians not only check your puppy or kitten to make sure he or she is growing properly, but we share our best practices for raising healthy pets that live long, healthy lives.
General Wellness (1 to 7 Years of Age)
For dogs and cats who are less than seven years of age, Junior Wellness provides our veterinarians with an important baseline set of results from key diagnostic tests. As time goes on, we compare new results with the old to uncover changes in your pet’s health.
Senior Wellness (Older than 7 Years of Age)
Older pets need special tests and exams to catch age-related diseases such as diabetes, cancer, kidney disease, Cushing’s, and more. We recommend that senior pets be examined every six months to allow for early intervention.
Wellness Programs for Exotic Pets
Exotic pets – such as birds, small mammals, and reptiles – all have specific nuances to their care and nutrition. Our veterinarians recommend wellness exams every 6 to 12 months for these special pets to evaluate their physical well-being. At that appointment, we can assess their ongoing care for its impact on health, comfort, and mental well-being.
