Wellness & Vaccinations

At Veterinary Healing Center of Folsom, we believe that with animals, just as with humans, prevention is always the best medicine. The more proactive we are about managing your pet’s health, the better the chances that he or she will enjoy many happy, healthy years by your side. We know that a long, healthy life for your pet is important to you, which is why it’s equally important to us! We also know that achieving this goal starts with a solid foundation of wellness care.

Through annual physical exams, disease prevention, and early detection, we will set your loved one on the path to a lifetime of good health. Our wellness care services are designed to meet all of your pet’s changing health care needs through every stage of life – from birth through the senior years, and every step along the way. This individualized approach ensures that your pet will always receive the most precise and effective care he or she needs, each and every time you visit with us.

What is wellness care?

Just as our own doctors recommend that we have check-ups once a year, pets need to be examined on a regular basis, too. These routine visits include comprehensive physical exams, which allow us to gather a clear and accurate snapshot of your pet’s overall health. We can then use this information as a guideline to measure future visits against, looking for any changes. The sooner we identify a potential health concern, the more effectively we can address it and the better the chances of a positive outcome for your pet.

Wellness visits involve all of the following:

  • Physical “nose to tail” exam
  • Customized vaccination plan
  • Parasite prevention and control
  • Nutrition and weight management

We’ll also discuss with you and make recommendations on other important things, such as microchip identification, spay/neuter procedures, behavioral issues, and more. Depending on your pet’s age and health status, the doctor may also recommend certain routine diagnostic tests to help us further evaluate your companion’s overall well-being.

Getting to know you…

Finally, although certainly no less important, wellness visits provide the perfect opportunity for all of us at Veterinary Healing Center of Folsom to get to know you and to develop a bond with your pet. This is important, because the more your loved one comes to know and trust us, the more comfortable and at ease he or she will be during visits, which will improve the quality of care we can deliver.

Simply put, the benefits of routine wellness care can add years to your pet’s life, and improve the quality of those years ten-fold. Don’t take chances with your loved one’s health. Let’s work together to help that special little guy or girl achieve optimum health for life!

      Our dog Mucho was in intense pain last Christmas and having trouble walking. After a few weeks of rest and pain medication Dr Cahoon began treating him with laser and acupuncture therapy along with Chinese herbs. We are happy to report Mucho is now a happy active fellow. As we continue with his therapy, we are very grateful for this wonderful veterinary clinic.

      Dr. McKerney has been treating my cockapoo, Waldo, with accutpunture for a couple of months now due to a spinal injry that resulted in paralization in the hind area. Waldo can now walk, a little wobbly. When recommended to me we did not know if Waldo would ever be able to walk again. Dr, McKerney is worth our drive (50miles) and time. She was also very thorough in reviewing all of Waldo's medical records prior to seeing him. Waldo is never expereinces any anxiety about going - that says a lot!

      This place is full of the kindest, most compassionate people. Dr Mckerney is Zoey’s favorite and she has gone above and beyond to always give Zoey the best care. Even while Zoey is hospitalized, Dr Mckerney and the staff have checked on her regularly. It means the world to us 💜💜💜

      I'm very happy with Veterinary Healing Center of El Dorado Hills. They have treated both my dogs, and have specialized their treatment to their individual needs. I appreciate the fact they are interested in what's best for the dog, not what I've experienced with other clinicians.

      We have taken all three of our dogs to Dr. Cahoon and Dr. McKerney over the past 6 years - they have kept them healthy and happy through all manner of health conditions and injuries and our 15 year golden mix would not be able to walk without the acupuncture and laser treatments they provide. They love our dogs and always spend time with us to explain what is going on. Highly recommend!
