Preventive Care

Preventative health services are key to increasing the duration and quality of life for your pet and are the foundation of pet health care. We strive to provide thorough routine care that gives your pet the best quality of life for as long as possible.

Vaccinations are a vital part of protecting your pet against potentially life-threatening diseases. Some vaccines are legal requirements (like the Rabies vaccine for dogs), others are recommended for all pets, and others can be useful based on specific lifestyles. We can discuss what is the right vaccine protocol for your pet.

Yearly exams are extremely important for maintaining the health and well-being of your companion animal. A complete physical exam can alert the veterinarian to potential diseases that can be prevented or treated with early intervention. Annual screening for parasites, heartworm, and tick disease monitors for the most common transmissible illnesses. Screening diagnostics, like blood and urine testing, can be helpful in detecting disease in older patients before it becomes a major problem.

Parasite control is an important aspect of pet health. Internal parasites (heartworm, intestinal worms, and protozoa) and external parasites (fleas, ticks, lice, and mites) can directly harm pets and transmit infectious diseases. Some parasites and diseases also affect humans. Preventing the problem before it happens provides better health for your entire household.
