What is Preventative Care for Pets?
Preventative care involves routine check-ups with a veterinarian to ensure your pet is happy and healthy. Common preventative treatments are listed below:
Vaccinations help protect against various viral and bacterial infections that can be life-threatening. Check with a veterinarian on our team to learn more about your pet’s vaccine requirements and recommendations.
Puppy & Kitten Care
It is always great to welcome a new puppy or kitten into your home. However, when pets are puppies or kittens, it is time to start getting preventative treatments and wellness exams at an animal hospital. During your pet’s first visit, a vet on our team may discuss a variety of pet care options with you to help your pet remain healthy.
Pet dental care can be an important part of preventative treatment. Routine dental check-ups and cleanings help ensure your pet’s gums and teeth are healthy, preventing gum disease, which can cause serious health complications, such as heart and kidney disease.
The nutritional choices you make for your pet can determine their health. Our veterinary care team members at our animal hospital can talk to you about special dietary needs, age-related nutrition, and weight loss or gain.
Parasite Prevention & Treatment
Parasite protection is a year-round task and necessary to help keep your pet safe and healthy. Flea, tick, and heartworm prevention can help protect your pet against serious illnesses caused by many parasites. Prevention is important because treatment can be lengthy, costly, and may result in death if infected.
Microchipping can help ensure your pet’s safe return in the event it gets away from you or is lost. When found, lost pets get scanned, and the microchip transmits a code that matches your contact information in a database. That information is used to contact you and coordinate the return of your pet.
