Preventative Medicine

We strongly believe that preventative care is the best way to ensure that your pet remains healthy. By acting ahead of time, we can prevent problems from arising, giving your pet the required care necessary for him or her to live a long, happy, and healthy life. As an essential part of our preventative care, regular checkups and lab work allows us to understand your pet’s health baseline and quickly identify changes that could hint at future problems. Health problems are much easier to treat when detected early on, rather than after the disease advances. As a pet owner, you do not have to wait until your pet falls ill with a serious, painful condition before visiting the vet. Our preventive philosophy is centered on performing “routine maintenance practices” to keep everything working well – kind of like your car’s annual oil change, but much more important. To keep your pet in top shape, we employ a preventative procedure which involves screening your pet for illness and physical ailments and protecting them from diseases. Preventive medical care for your pets includes the administration of the appropriate vaccines to prevent your pet from contracting uncomfortable and potentially fatal diseases. It also involves parasite prevention, yearly exams and consultations, nail trimmings, bloodwork and professional dental care. At times, our preventive medical care includes such surgical procedures as neutering and spaying to help keep medical issues and behavioral changes at bay. This intelligent medical practice is geared towards keeping your pet healthy and safe, while also helping to reduce the overpopulation of pets. We encourage you to bring your pet in for regular checkups, regardless of whether your pet appears healthy or not. When health problems are identified early, they have much less chance of advancing into critical issues. Preventive health care for your pets is also good for your budget. Rather than paying for often-costly medications and procedures when your pet unexpectedly falls ill, you can make a series of small, planned payments to keep these illnesses away through early disease prevention and diagnosis. Our highly dedicated and qualified staff work to maintain a friendly environment, offering helpful guidance as you seek to keep your pet healthy and safe. As we constantly keep ourselves ahead of advancements in the veterinary field, we provide the most up-to-date information to empower you to do what’s best for your pet. We know that preventative care also includes a healthy lifestyle at home, and we are always happy to answer any questions you may have about exercise, socialization, nutrition, or any other aspect of your pet’s care. Call us today to learn about proper preventive medical practice for your pet, and learn how we keep your pet happy and healthy.
