Preventive Care for Pets
A critically important step to maintaining your pet’s health
Why Preventive Care Matters
Preventative care consists of a combination of practices you can implement at home and services your veterinarian can provide to help prevent disease and increase the life of your beloved pet. By focusing on preventative care, you are taking an important step in keeping your friend healthy and happy for years to come.
Comprehensive Physical Examination
This head-to-toe examination includes, but is not limited to, temperature, weight, and the evaluation of the following:
- coat and skin
- eyes, ears, mouth, and teeth
- heart, lungs, and abdomen
- legs and paws
Vaccines prevent diseases in your pets and reduce the risk of transmitting diseases to your family. We develop custom vaccine protocols based on your pet’s individual risk factors.
Based on your pet’s lifestyle, we work with you to determine the best preventive treatment for your pet. Parasite prevention protects both your pet and your family from disease-carrying parasites.
Chemistry Profile and CBC
A blood chemistry profile, including electrolytes, provides information about your pet’s liver, kidneys, and pancreas as well as other functions of the body, such as blood sugar and hydration. A complete blood count (CBC) can identify infection, inflammation, and anemia.
Infectious Disease Screening
Identifies whether your pet has been exposed to parasitic diseases, such as tick-borne diseases, heartworm, or other infectious diseases.
Check for intestinal parasites, which may live in your pet’s gastrointestinal tract. Since they are usually hidden from view, the only way to detect the presence of most intestinal parasites and identify them is by doing a fecal test.
Thyroid Function Test
A thyroid function test detects whether or not your pet’s thyroid gland is functioning properly. Thyroid disease is very common in older cats and dogs.
Identifies an infection or inflammation in the urinary tract.
Common Questions About Preventive Care Services
How do I know what is needed for my pet?
Our doctors, technicians, and veterinary assistants are highly trained to be able to decide the best preventive care plan specifically for your pet based on their history and lifestyle.
Do you offer wellness and/or puppy packages?
We do not offer any kind of bundle or package. Our visits are done on a case-by-case basis and this allows for clients to only pay for the things that are necessary for their pet or space things out, as necessary.
How much do these services cost?
We are very honest with our prices and you can give us a call and our staff can give you price quotes for all exams, vaccines, prevention, and most diagnostics, depending on what is recommended by our veterinarian.
