Pet Preventive medicine services involve regular check-ups conducted by veterinarians that help identify potential medical issues before they become serious problems or illnesses requiring more intensive treatment. By catching any signs or symptoms early on, you can prevent costly treatments from being necessary while ensuring your pet remains as healthy as possible over time – making preventive care essential when it comes to looking after our furry family members!
Here are some key benefits of investing in preventive medicine services:
Regular check-ups allow vets to identify any underlying health issues quickly so appropriate action can be taken immediately – helping keep your beloved companion fit and happy for longer! This could include anything from diagnosis/treatment recommendations based on physical examinations, blood tests (to detect conditions like diabetes) right through administering vaccinations against common diseases such as parvovirus or distemper virus, which may otherwise go unnoticed until too late without regular visits at least once per year depending upon age/breed type etc.
Preventive healthcare helps diagnose potentially life-threatening diseases early enough so that effective treatments can be prescribed promptly – reducing suffering caused by long-term illness due to delayed intervention which would occur had there been no prior examination/testing done regularly each year (or sooner). This also means fewer expenses incurred due to later-stage interventions required should something have gone undetected during routine visitations with vet doctor(s).
Investing into proactive rather than reactive measures pays off financially, too; not only does prevention cost less than treatment, but you will avoid having expensive bills mounting up should something happen unexpectedly where immediate medical attention needs paying out straight away – often incurring additional costs associated with ongoing care afterward if needed i..e medication refills, etc.
We kindly request that appointments be canceled or rescheduled at least 24 hours in advance to avoid a $20 cancellation/rescheduling fee.
Failure to attend an appointment without prior notice or cancellation after the specified time frame will result in a penalty fee of $89.
Following three consecutive no-shows, we reserve the right to suspend your appointment scheduling privileges.
All refill requests must receive authorization from your doctor. Prior to refills, physical exams may be required at the discretion of the doctor, taking into consideration patient history. Please allow 48 hours for medication refills to be processed. Certain medications have short expiration dates, so kindly request refills 15 days before pickup to ensure availability.
Patients with chronic conditions necessitate periodic examinations and blood work, determined at the discretion of the doctor based on individual needs.
There is a nominal fee of $15 for providing or sending a prescription to you for use at other pharmacies.
Payment is due at the time of service. A 50% deposit is mandatory for surgeries and ultrasounds to secure the scheduled date. Examinations typically run for 20-30 minutes; any additional time will incur an extra charge.
