Preventative Healthcare – Keeping your pet healthy is our mission.

At the Wetaskiwin Animal Clinic, our entire professional healthcare team is dedicated to delivering proactive, problem preventing medicare which is the key to maintaining optimum pet health. We have a very open minded diagnostic approach whereby we consider all predisposing and contributing factors in our Multi Moldal Medical Management of your pets’ health and well-being.

Our veterinary practice realizes that the most important key to providing optimum pet healthcare is by putting the veterinarian’s role as a problem preventer on an equal footing with the traditional role of a disease and injury treating problem solver. The focus on disease prevention emphasizes regular visits for preventive healthcare instead of occasional, as-needed utilization of veterinary services for acute emergency care. We offer a wide range of services including medical, diagnostic, surgical, and preventive health care needs for your pet so they live a longer, healthier, happier life.

A patient’s healthcare is not complete without a complete diagnostic work-up and comprehensive testing.

  • Annual checkups can overlook diseases that are subtle or subclinical. A minimum database can diagnose earlier and enable timely management of common diseases, such as diabetes, kidney disease and parasitism.
  • Every animal is unique, so it is important to know what normal is for each patient.
  • Trending results allows earlier diagnosis and intervention. Earlier detection and treatment leads to better outcomes, improved quality of life and lower treatment costs.

General Physical Examination alone by itself can fail to detect many underlying sub-clinical illnesses and disease conditions. Keeping your dog safe and healthy is a full-time job. It takes more than just going to see the veterinarian when sickness is obvious.
