Preventive Pet Care Makes Happy Dogs and Cats
When it comes to our pets, it is much safer, easier, and ultimately less expensive to prevent illness than it is to treat illness. Routine pet wellness visits, parasite prevention, and vaccinations are all important aspects of preventive care for your pet.
Routine Wellness Visits
Annual veterinary wellness visits allow our veterinarians to monitor any changes in your pet that may indicate a potential problem. By identifying potential issues early, steps can be taken to prevent more serious health problems from developing. And that’s why preventive health care in the present, typically means less expensive pet care in the future.
During a wellness visit your veterinarian will check all systems of your pet including your pet’s weight, temperature, heart rate, breathing patterns and inspect his or her eyes, ears, mouth and nose for any signs of trouble. We will also discuss your pet’s nutritional needs.
If there are any other concerns that you may have, we will also discuss and help you during this time.
Wellness Blood Work
Blood work at all stages are routinely performed to ensure that your pet’s organs are all working properly. With basic tests we can monitor your pet’s kidneys, liver, pancreas, and blood cells to ensure that there are no underlying issues.
Many of the internal and external parasites that our pets have, can also be passed along to humans. These parasites can cause many different symptoms to our pets as well as us. With regular parasite prevention, you and your pet can be safe from the harm of parasites.
We are fortunate to be able to vaccinate our pets and protect them from many infectious and life threatening diseases. Maintaining a regular vaccination schedule is extremely important in protecting your pet’s health and also protecting your family.
- Puppies and kittens
- need to be vaccinated on a schedule designed to allow their immune system to build up a resistance to common illnesses.
- Older dogs and cats
- usually need vaccinations only once a year in order to remain protected.
- Large animals
- have a vaccination schedule developed to address their unique needs.
