Detecting a disease or health concern in it's early stages can make the condition easier to treat and often can result in the best possible outcome for your pet. Senior pets often hide their ailments from their owners. Senior wellness exams can provide insight into your senior pets ailment progression.
Senior wellness packages include: Health exam, blood collection, CBC, chemistry, Thyroid, Urine collection, urinalysis, lateral chest x-ray, (blood pressure on cats) and a bag (or 1/2 case of cans) of Hill's food.
HealthOur mission at River Valley Veterinary Wellness Clinic is to enrich and lengthen the special bond that people have with their pets. Our goal at the end of every appointment is to have your pet go home happy, healthy, pain free and live as long as possible. We believe a great way to achieve this is through a great relationship with your Veterinarian.

Annual Wellness ExamPets age much more rapidly than people (approximately 7 times for dogs & 5 times for cats) and some age related diseases caught in the early stages can often be controlled through medications and even simple dietary changes. Our Vets recommend an annual wellness exam for all pets. Our wellness exams are designed to ensure both the detection and prevention of potential diseases. Wellness exams may include: Nutrition, Vaccinations, Dental care, Pet health, Supplements and Laboratory testing.
Pet VaccinationsFrom the time your pet is about eight weeks old, he or she will need pet vaccinations to prevent the most common, contagious and deadly diseases pets can catch. Keeping your pet up to date on vaccinations is one of the most effective, inexpensive ways to make sure they are protected from possible pain and suffering and to develop a strong immunity. Talk with our veterinarian about your pets’ vaccination schedules.
Spay and NeuterThese safe routine surgeries do more than just help reduce the ongoing tragedy of unwanted animals in shelters, they can also extend and improve your pets’ quality of life! Our veterinary team will take precautions to ensure that your pet receives a safe anesthetic. We always recommend that a physical exam and pre-anesthetic testing be done before surgery. We also monitor your pet during surgery and provide pain medication during recovery. A registered animal health technologist will monitor your pet.
Pet DentalOral hygiene plays an important role in your animals health. Nearly 80% of pets struggle with some level of periodontal disease, which can be painful and even cause organ damage. Our experienced vets in our clinic can treat and prevent pet dental problems and show you how you can care for your pets teeth at home.
Pet SurgeryDr. Jennifer Stelfox is very experienced and our technician staff are well trained to provide most pet surgeries from routine spay and neuter’s to emergency surgeries, lumpectomies, dentals, orthopedic surgeries and more.
X-Rays & In House DiagnosticsWith digital X-rays and an in-house laboratory our animal clinic is equipped to make fast, accurate veterinary care decisions without waiting for test results to come from other locations. Combining this with our electronic records system, we can transfer test results throughout the clinic and out to specialists or other vet clinics as necessary.
