Preventative Care

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

Annual physical exams allow us to determine general overall health, body score, oral hygiene, condition of skin and ears and to point out the changes that are occurring each year of life. Owners are given the opportunity to point out things they are concerned about like lumps and bumps and also to describe any abnormalities they are noticing at home.

During an annual visit we are given the opportunity to discuss risk factors that are linked to your pet’s lifestyle and make well informed recommendations for preventive medications, vaccinations, diet and lifestyle changes. Detailed medical records are kept to ensure continuity of care for each individual pet, tracking weight changes and health issues over the years.
