Pet Preventative Care
It is important for your pet to receive routine checkups just like it is for you. It allows us to make sure that your pet is healthy and also allows us to catch any health problems before they become serious. You should bring your dog or cat in for a checkup at twice a year, as pet’s age much faster than their human companions.
During the visit we will check your pets’ vitals, make sure all vaccinations are up to date, and perform any necessary blood work. Blood work can help to diagnose heartworm, Lyme disease, viral infections, and other diseases that can be treated more easily when detected early. The best way to combat these diseases is actually to stop them before they happen. There are many vaccines and medications available to prevent them. We will make sure your pet is taking the necessary medications to keep them safe.
Deworming is also a key method to keep your pets (and your family) free from getting sick. Deworming helps to prevent your pet from acquiring parasites. If your pet does become infected by a parasite it is possible for them to spread it to anything or anyone they come into contact with. We have monthly Heartworm, Flea and Tick preventatives for your pet’s protection. Don’t be fooled with over-the-counter imposters. Generally, OTC products are a waste of your money and don’t do a very good job.
