Preventive Services

The bond between pet and owner is fused from a mutual need for loving companionship. It takes a deep level of care to keep that relationship healthy. The veterinarian has an essential role in ensuring that the relationship is truly enduring by providing preventive pet healthcare. Today, many pets do not get the preventive care they need. Over the last 5 years, common and often preventable conditions in cats and dogs continue to grow. As members of the veterinary profession, we can always do better to help pets and their owners enjoy longer, healthier lives together. A simple way you can help keep your pet healthy is by protecting him or her against parasites. Heartworms, fleas, ticks, and other internal and external parasites are much more than just pests; they can cause life-threatening conditions in your pet—and cause severe, potentially fatal, health problems for you and your family. We will recommend the best preventive regimen for your pet, based on lifestyle and risk factors. We can also provide expert advice on keeping your whole household safe from parasitic infection. Set up an appointment with us to discuss parasite prevention, or call us to refill your pet’s medication. Protect your pet and your family today!
