Why Should My Pet Receive a Preventive Exam?

Many diseases, infections, and afflictions commonly affecting pets are easily preventable with the right steps. These issues rarely resolve themselves and, if left untreated, often become harder to manage and more expensive to treat. We believe prevention is key to the happiness and longevity of your pet. Our comprehensive preventive pet care includes treatments such as:

Our Detailed & Personalized Pet Preventive Care

Our preventive pet care examinations are delivered with a thorough approach. We will carefully check them from head to tail, including their coat, skin, eyes, ears, teeth, body alignment, and fecal matter for signs of parasites. We work hard to ensure no underlying conditions are developing under the surface, and we can administer safe and reliable preventive vaccines to protect them for the approaching years.

Our team is dedicated to providing you with a full overview of your animal's health and well-being by tailoring our exams and services to the unique attributes of your pet. Our seasoned veterinarians will consider factors like species, breed, lifestyle, size, and age. We give special care and attention to older pets, pocket-sized animals like rabbits, as well as puppies and kittens, who have weaker immune systems, making them more susceptible to infection and disease.

The Importance of Seasonal Prevention

It's much easier to prevent parasites than to treat them. Fleas, ticks, and worms are more active during certain times of year, with fleas known to lay 30-50 eggs per day, leading to a quick infestation of your environment. Our skilled veterinarians will provide a thorough wellness exam to determine which preventive treatment is the right choice for your pet. We provide oral or topical medications that will help stop the possibility of parasitic infection before the season has begun.

Signs Your Pet May Be Suffering From Parasites

Our focus is on preventive exams and treatments to stop an infection before it happens. Without taking the proper preventive measures, a parasitic infection is an inevitability. Parasites dominate certain environments during specific times of the year and can be transferred easily from other pets or even from the pet owners themselves, and they're known to continuously re-infect their host.

It's important for you to notice early signs of parasitic infection so your pet can receive swift treatment. Your cat or dog will most likely exhibit clear signs of parasitic infection, which include, but are not limited to:

  • Chronic itching
  • Red patches on the skin
  • Hair loss
  • Excessive shaking of the head
  • Round tummy
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Losing weight
  • Coughing

Pet Preventive Care FAQ

We know that you have many questions about the health and well-being of your pet, and our friendly veterinary team is happy to address any questions and concerns you may have upon arriving at our office. Questions we frequently get asked about pet preventive care include:

Are there any side effects to prevention treatment?

Our trusted veterinarians will perform a preliminary wellness check to help ensure your pet is healthy enough to undergo preventive treatments such as tick and flea medication and vaccinations. Risks are rare, but there are some side effects associated with tick and flea medication, like skin rashes, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Puppies and kittens have a less mature immune system than their adult counterparts, which leaves them vulnerable to infection and disease. We recommend you bring your young pet into our office for preventive vaccines when they're ready, usually around six weeks old, to get them started on the right foot for a lifetime of health and happiness.

Core vaccinations help prevent issues that are critical to your pet's health. Our preventive vaccines can help protect your pet against harmful diseases such as rabies, hepatitis, parvovirus, and much more.
