As the saying goes “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” It is vitally important that your pet has routine preventive care appointments so that we can catch any problems as early as possible – when they are much easier to treat. This also allows us to establish a physiological and behavioral baseline, so we can be quick to see when something goes amiss. During your dog or cat’s examination, we will thoroughly check each of their biological systems – such as their respiratory, cardiovascular, oral, skin, etc. It’s also a great time for you to ask us about any questions or concerns you might have for your pet.
Many pet owners aren’t aware that by the age of three, the majority of dogs and cats will show signs of periodontal disease. This is a progressive health condition that can be quite painful, and can even cause serious health problems for your pet’s internal organs down the road. It happens when plaque isn’t brushed away after eating. Your pet’s saliva hardens the plaque into calculus, and it begins to spread beneath the gum line. Here, harmful bacteria begin to grow, and erode your pet’s tooth support, and can even spread to the rest of their body. But not to worry – periodontal disease is no match for our veterinary team! We can also educate you on good proactive homecare between dental checkups, and can perform more advanced dental procedures when necessary.
Vaccines are an integral part to keeping your pet happy, healthy, and safe. They work by training your pet’s immune system to fight against different viral strains – such as rabies, bordatella, etc. Depending on your pet’s lifestyle and unique circumstances, we can recommend which vaccines are appropriate for your pet. Vaccinating your pet is fast, safe, and relatively inexpensive. It is one of the best things you can do for your pet’s health.
Fleas, ticks, heartworms, and other parasites can range from irritating to life threatening. We will educate you on which parasites your pet is at risk for, and can administer (or prescribe) parasite control for your dog or cat.
