Preventive Health Care Treatment Services
We focus on preventive veterinary care to promote and improve overall pet health. Routine check-ups allow us to diagnose, treat and protect your pet from contracting serious, costly and sometimes fatal diseases. Offering a holistic approach to pet health, we partner with our clients to make sure their pets receive proper preventive care through:
- Comprehensive Examinations
- Dental Care
- Parasite Control
- Nutritional Counseling
- Behavioral Counseling
We believe strongly in the value of preventative health care for your pets. It keeps them healthy and able to live long, active lives. Preventative health care begins with a physical examination. Our recommendation for your pet is to have a yearly examination with appropriate vaccinations, parasite testing and monitoring of major organ systems.
Vaccination for preventable infectious diseases is recommended depending on individual risk for exposure or as required by law.
Parasite testing and prevention of parasites with appropriate medications are an increasingly important part of preventative health care for both pets and the people who own them. Regular administration of products that prevent intestinal parasites, heartworms, ticks and fleas is standard best practice for cats and dogs today.
Routine monitoring of major organ systems with blood work and urine testing is appropriate for some of our pets, particularly the older crowd.
We encourage routine laboratory testing of blood and urine for our senior patients (7 years of age and older). This helps us monitor for diseases that occur more commonly as our pets age, but may not be outwardly apparent on a physical examination or recognizable by the owner.
