Wellness Visits Save You Money and Help Keep Your Pet Healthy
What is Preventive Well Care?
Similar to changing the oil in your car, your pet’s health requires routine veterinary visits. Because your pets can’t tell us what is wrong, it is important for us to track their health on a regular basis. This way we can catch subtle changes early while keeping small problems small. This means your pet is not only healthier, you also will spend less money in the long run. Some of the preventive services your pet(s) require are bi-annual physical exams, yearly vaccinations, annual bloodwork, proper diet/nutrition/exercise, dental cleanings, and parasite screenings/prevention. By giving your pet(s) these routine services you allow us to work together and have a dramatic impact on your pet’s overall health and well-being.
The best veterinary care for your pet is preventative care. This means routine vaccinations, comprehensive bi-annual physicals, proper nutrition, flea/tick prevention, heartworm prevention, yearly blood work diagnostics, and proper dental cleaning. Preventive care not only increases the overall health and longevity of your pet but also ends up reducing your veterinary bills by treating small problems before they turn into emergencies. Along with providing routine wellness care, our staff is capable of handling most surgical procedures and is always available to answer any of your questions.
The cost of veterinary care can get expensive. While we do our best to keep costs affordable we understand that it can be challenging to meet the financial needs of your pet(s). That is why we reccomend Pet Insurance. While we are happy to give you recommendations and information, ultimately it is up to you to research and decide which plan meets both you and your pets needs. Below are some Pet Insurance companies that we encourage you to consider.
