Wellness Vaccinations

Pets can truly change our lives. They pitter patter and paw their little way into our hearts and touch our souls forever. Yet, they’re only with us for a precious amount of time. It’s important that we do whatever we can to help extend and improve the quality of that time as much as possible. That’s why wellness care is so important.

As a pet parent, the greatest gift you can give your furry companion is a commitment to ongoing wellness care. This provides a solid foundation on which your loved one can enjoy a long, happy and healthy life. At Aspen Commons Animal Hospital, we offer comprehensive wellness care for animals of all ages. With regular care and preventative medicine, you can give your four-legged family member the gift of a lifetime of good health.

The wellness services at Aspen Commons Animal Hospital are designed to support your loved one through every life stage. From your puppy or kitten’s first round of vaccinations to health maintenance for your adult pet to the specialized care necessary to help your senior companion stay fit and comfortable, we’re prepared to partner with you every step of the way. Our focus is on delivering the precise care needed with each and every visit.

One of the most important components of wellness care is disease prevention. Throughout your pet’s lifetime, he or she will encounter a great number of risks and dangers that could impact his or her health and longevity. We can counteract these risks by taking a proactive approach to health care. Customized vaccinations, parasite prevention, nutrition and weight management are all things that will help keep your companion safe, healthy and fit.

Another important benefit that routine wellness care provides is the opportunity to identify potential medical concerns in a timely manner. When we examine your pet on a regular basis, we are able to pinpoint areas of concern and address them appropriately for optimum results. Illnesses and diseases that are caught in their earliest stages are much easier and more affordable to treat and manage than those that have had the chance to progress.

Wellness visits at Aspen Commons include a thorough physical exam during which time the vet will check your pet’s entire body to verify that everything is functioning just as it should and to look for any inconsistencies or abnormalities that may be present. Certain diagnostic tests may be recommended to further assess your companion’s wellbeing. We will use all of the information gathered to develop a customized health care plan designed to promote a lifetime of good health.

Finally, yet equally as important, routine wellness visits provide all of us at Aspen Commons with the opportunity to get to know you and your pet on a more personal level. We encourage you to use these visits to ask questions, bring up any concerns and share stories about your loved one. The more we come to know and understand your pet, the better the care we can provide over the course of his or her lifetime.

You adore your pet and want to see that fur baby enjoy as many happy, healthy years as possible. It starts with a foundation of wellness care. Let’s get your loved one on the path to wellness for life!

      We worked with another local vet for over thirty years, when he retired the prospect of finding another that our Schnauzer would approve of was daunting. Lo and behold comes Bob James, the "Burt" of "Burt and Ernie" (the retiring Vet) . We, as hopefully most others, look at our pet just as "One of the kids..." that is not just thrown into someones care without careful consideration of just who is prodding around on their little bodies. Bob and their staff have been nothing short of exemplary professional service with a personal attention that is second to none. it is just comforting to know that this person and staff are giving our "kids" the same love and care that we give them ourselves . It is easy to put value on that, difficult to put a price. I wish there were a few more people in the world like him, but that is what makes him stand out better, I guess.
      Lord Bless him, his staff and his business

      Couldn't be any happier with Aspen Commons. Everyone genuinely cares about their jobs and it is clear that they love animals. Dr. James has great bedside manner and is very knowledgeable. They also love to give out treats to make your pets feel more comfortable during their visit. Polar opposite experience with this vet than another one that I tried in the area. Prices are fair and they won't try to pull a fast one and say that they didn't receive your pet's records so they can do a bunch of unnecessary tests to drive up the cost of the bill, like another vet in the area (see my other review). This is definitely my new vet and I couldn't imagine going anywhere else.

      Dr. James and staff have cared for my five dogs (and 1 cat) for at least 30 years and I have always been pleased and thankful for the high level of service and compassion. I dread the day the doctor retires because we feel that he is the best around. We love Aspen Commons.

      I’v had 2 people recommend him to me , so we finally went in and became a lifelong patient of his. He’s genuine and amazing and a rare find. My dog battled a porcupine and lost, they were able to take me in within an hour of calling. Dr. James is incredible, throrough and has probably seen it all. We’ve seen him for a paw infection, ear infection and vaccines. He has little furry 4 legged nurses in the back that he’s no doubt rescued that keep your pet company . He’s understanding, and takes his time with everything that he does. He’s the best , and I’m blessed to have found him.
