Wellness & Preventative Care

Good preventative care is an important part of your pet’s overall health. Schedule a wellness exam at our Clinic.

Home | Veterinary Clinic | Wellness & Preventative Care

Keep your pet happy & healthy

We recommend regular check-ups at least once a year. During your wellness appointment, our veterinary team will conduct a full physical exam, discuss vaccinations, testing and parasite control, and address any health concerns you may have. A wellness exam is required for all prescriptions.

We offer a two-tiered pricing system for many of our veterinary services: Community Pricing and our Companion Program, based on income qualifications. Donations to the Companions for Life Fund support the Companion Program. 

See if you meet the guidelines.

Vaccinations

Vaccinations keep your pet healthy. We follow national guidelines for immunization to keep your pet protected from serious and infectious diseases. During a wellness exam, you and your veterinarian will discuss the recommended vaccinations for your pet, and thus, we will administer them during the exam itself. Because vaccination needs differ from pet to pet, based on age, medical needs and vaccination history, we are unable administer initial vaccines without of a wellness appointment with a veterinarian. However, we do not require a wellness exam (and subsequent fee) for follow-up vaccine boosters. Occasionally we offer special rabies vaccination clinics.

We have the most heartwarming Happy Homes story to share! Lana, who was adopted back in January of 2023, has been living with her perfect family and truly being a loyal and loving companion. It just goes to show you that you never know how an animal may change your life. Here's what her mom has to say about her now! 

"Lana is an amazing dog and has been the light of me and my daughter’s life. She helped us through some tough times. She has a natural gift as she could always sense when my daughter was about to have her Vertigo moments. And she also was a protective girl around her after my daughter and I were in a car accident when we got hit by a drunk driver. This dog was a true friend and hero and I couldn’t imagine life without her!"
Yesterday was the last day of school for 7th graders at the Middle School of the Kennebunks, and per their annual tradition they visited AWS! Art students at the school make dog and cat toys for us every year and then celebrate by hand delivering the donations right to our door. They then take a tour of our facility and visit with the pets they helped. We love community traditions like this! Happy summer!
