Preventive care services are performed for the prevention of disease or sickness and help to ensure your pets are staying healthy. These services include vaccinations, parasite control, wellness exams, and even weight management help.
We all want our pets to enjoy long, happy, and healthy lives. The best way to achieve this goal is by making a lifelong commitment to wellness care. A wellness examination is a complete physical examination along with diagnostic testing that may include blood work, urinalysis, and checking a stool sample. In many cases, a wellness examination can help detect the early stages of disease. Therefore, they are recommended for most pets annually, but for senior pets and pets with chronic health issues, a wellness exam every six months may be appropriate.
Regular bloodwork can be used to check for a number of problems, including organ function, blood sugar monitoring, and heartworm disease. Wellness testing may also include a urinalysis and intestinal parasites tests.
It’s recommended that most dogs receive annual bloodwork and senior dogs receive semi-annual bloodwork.
Vaccines help prevent many illnesses that affect pets. Vaccinating your pet has long been considered one of the easiest ways to help him live a long, healthy life. Not only are there different vaccines for different diseases, there are different types and combinations of vaccines. Our doctor will help you decide which vaccines are appropriate for your pet’s risk factors. Proper administration and giving a vaccine at the correct age and time interval is critical for proper protection.
All Life Stages Care
Puppies and kittens need a series of vaccinations to properly protect them against a number of illnesses/diseases. Our doctor will help you decide which vaccines are appropriate for your pet’s risk factors. Proper administration and giving a vaccine at the correct age and time interval is critical for proper protection.
As pets age, they need extra care and attention. Regular veterinary examinations can detect problems in older pets before they become advanced or life-threatening, and improve the chances of a longer and healthier life for your pet.
Prevention is key for parasitic control.
Our pets are vulnerable to fleas, ticks, heartworm, and internal parasites (e.g., roundworms, hookworms, whipworms) all year round.
We can help you choose the correct preventative product based on your pet’s risk factors and health status.
A microchip for your pet can mean the difference between lost and found. A veterinarian injects a tiny computer chip—about the size of a grain of rice—just under your pet’s skin, between the shoulder blades. Once you register the microchip number, it is entered into an international database, which can be read by a microchip scanner if your pet is lost and picked up by a veterinary hospital or animal shelter. If your contact information is up-to-date, the hospital or shelter that found your pet can contact you and reunite you with your pet.
