Preventative Care for Your Pet

Our animal hospital provides a wide range of services, using the latest technology, by trained professionals who love animals. We do surgery, laser therapy, acupuncture, emergency care, and much more. Perhaps our most vital service is in the area of preventative care. Basically, this includes all of the things that will help keep your pet from getting sick and keeping it safe. These include:

1. Microchipping

Microchipping your pet is one of the most important things you can do to prevent harm. It’s a simple procedure, where a device the size of a grain of rice is placed under the skin. It causes mild discomfort for a short time. These microchips have proven to be invaluable tools for recovering lost pets.

2. Vaccinations

Another simple yet vital part of your pets’ preventative care is vaccinations. Not only should your pet be vaccinated for its health, but it is required by most towns for the health of the community. Vaccinations can be done during your pet’s annual wellness exam.

3. Dental Exams

Some people may balk at dental care for a cat or dog. But pets need their teeth just as much as humans. Annual dental exams help make sure your pet has no cavities, or gum issues, and can quickly fix any if need be. Veterinarians can also perform cleanings, x-rays, and breath treatments.

4. Flea and Tick Medicine

Your pet should be given preventative flea and tick medication on a regular basis. You can decide with your veterinary care provider whether oral or topical medication is better for your pet. Preventing fleas and ticks is an extremely important part of keeping your furry friend free from problems.

5. Wellness Exam

The wellness exam is where all of the other preventative care measures come together. A yearly wellness exam is vital for your pets’ overall health. At the exam, the veterinarian checks your pet from head to tail to make sure it is in tip-top shape.
