Preventive Care

Preventive care is one of the most important aspects of your pet’s ongoing health. We perform comprehensive “nose to toes” physical examinations to assess our patients’ health. We recommend that each of our physicals include:

Why Preventive Care?snuggles

We believe that preventive care is the best way to maintain a lifetime of health. We recommend annual check-ups, and biannual check-ups for senior pets, or pets over the age of 7. Regular physical examinations and additional testing enable our veterinarians to know your pet’s baseline of health, ensuring that we will be able to catch health problems as they begin to develop. Early identification of diseases or subtle changes in your pet’s body is the most effective way to provide treatment and potentially prolong the life of your pet.
