The Importance of Preventative Medicine for Pets
Think of it like a routine check-up with your family doctor: a necessary step to prevent future health problems. And “to nip in the bud” any potential health issues right under the surface. It is no different for your pet. We can't overstate the importance of preventative medicine. Hence, being “up to date” on routine vaccinations and “de-worming” your pet no longer fully guarantees their overall health and quality of life. Veterinary medicine has made great advances within the past few decades, allowing us to bring those benefits to you and the pets you love.
Just as your family doctor urges wellness exams when you reach certain “milestones,” we feel the same way about your animal. Personally, we recommend that you bring your pet to see us at least once yearly for a wellness exam. When your pet is young, these check-ups allow us to establish a baseline from which we continue to build upon and reference as your pet ages. This yearly monitoring will allow us to notice and manage abnormalities in a much more timely fashion. Wellness check-ups may include blood work as well as other routine and simple diagnostics to help us evaluate your pet's overall health and wellbeing.
The old adage, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” rings true for your animal's welfare. Not only does a check-up ensure fewer worries for you and your family, but it also assures less stress and fewer medical bills down the road.
We understand how much you value your pet's good health and long life, and we pledge to work with you to ensure the highest comfort and quality of life for your companion animal.
