PREVENTION

Prevention

Prevention is an important part of your pet’s overall health. Routine checkups, diet, parasite control, vaccinations, and exercise together help your pet to live a full and happy life. It is our goal to guide you through keeping your pet healthy and happy for years to come. 

Routine Checkups and Screenings

Due to the fact that dogs age faster than humans, exams twice a year are very important. This allows our doctors to do thorough exams twice a year with the intent to catch problems sooner. Annual bloodwork is important as it allows our doctors to evaluate liver and kidney function and watch for any changes to occur. 

Parasites

Through routine screenings such as fecal flotation and heartworm tests, our doctors are able to ensure that your pet remains parasite free. Both dogs and cats can become infected with a number of different parasites. A few of these can be transmitted to humans. Due to these reasons, parasite prevention and control is important.

Nutrition and Exercise

Just as in humans, a healthy diet and exercise program can help prolong lives. With so many options of pet foods on the market, our team will help guide you in finding the best diet for your pet. We will also help you to determine how much food your pet should be eating on a daily basis. Keeping your pet within a healthy weight range will help with joint health, mobility, and overall quality of life. 

Vaccinations

There are many diseases that are life threatening to your pet. With advancements in medicine, we have vaccines to help prevent many of them. Whether you have a new puppy or kitten, a newly adopted adult pet, or your companion of many years, our doctors will make sure your pet is protected with an appropriate vaccine protocol. 

Dentistry

Healthy teeth are just as important for dogs as they are for humans. Routine dental cleanings help to prevent dental disease, monitor areas that may become a problem in the future, and improve bad breath. Because the majority of the tooth is below the gum line, dental radiographs help us to view the entire tooth.
