Preventive Medicine

Being proactive is the key to your pet’s long term health and in the  prevention of disease and illness. Preventive treatment and practices are also important factors in minimizing the cost of health care for your pet over time. We always recommend routine wellness exams, vaccinations, lab work, deworming and intestinal parasite screenings to keep your pet in optimum health and to identify any concerns before they become serious problems. We also prescribe medications to prevent heartworm, fleas and ticks and vaccinations to help prevent disease.

Annual Pet Wellness Exams 

Our wellness exams are performed each time your pet presents to the office for vaccinations or for a particular problem.. These visits provide a perfect opportunity to assess your pet’s overall health and physical condition, discuss any improvement or decline we see, educate and update you on any advancements or changes in veterinary care and for you to address any concerns or questions you may have.

Preventive Medications

Since fleas and ticks are prevalent in our area of the country, we recommend that your pet receive preventive medication for these pests. We offer a variety of preventives and would be happy to help you determine which is best for your companion.
 
Dangerous parasites are also present in almost any environment. If brought into your home, these parasites can be passed from your pet to you and your family. We normally associate parasites such as roundworm, tapeworm, whipworm and hookworm with cats and dogs, but people can also become infected with the same parasites.
 
Regular intestinal parasite screening and deworming are the best ways to prevent parasitic disease and the transmission of intestinal parasites from pets to people. It also prevents the shedding of parasite eggs, which contaminate lawns or any place a pet defecates.
 
In all, these services offer the best means to protect your pet’s health and well-being through prevention and early detection of disease.
