Benefits of the Pet Preventive Medicine
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:
Improved Health & Wellbeing
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.
Early Detection & Treatment Of Diseases
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).
Cost Savings In The Long Run
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.
To allow ample time for all patients and scheduled surgical procedures, we operate by appointment only. Emergency cases shall always receive top priority which may result in longer wait times for your appointment. We strive to give everyone the best possible care and sometimes this may result in a delay to see you and your pet.
Patient Arrival Policy
For your protection, and that of others, all dogs must be on leash while in the waiting area or exam room. If your dog has issues with other dogs, let us know and we can make special arrangements for your pet to come in and out. All cats must be in an appropriate cat carrier or on a leash.
We require full payment at the time that services are performed. Payment is accepted by cash, Debit, Visa or Mastercard.
