Preventative Care Tips to Keep Your Dog Happy and Healthy

Annual preventative care wellness exams with your veterinarian is the best way to keep your pet healthy and happy. The vet will check the physical condition of your dog in the first visit to diagnose any problems. Routine lab tests are able to detect early stages of disease. Our hospital is able to conduct various types of tests with the latest technology. Early check-ups will help to diagnose any problems at an early stage which will help your dog live a longer and happier life. 

 

Vaccinations

Vaccination is the best way to protect your dog from many diseases such as cough, rabies, and distemper. Dogs can be immunized against canine flu and Lyme disease. Consult your veterinarian about the vaccines that are best for your pet for their age, health status and exposure. 

 

Grooming Routine 

Ear cleaning, trimming or nails, and coat brushing are all beneficial for your dog. Visit your veterinarian on a regular basis and consult your veterinarian on how to clean your dog’s ears safely. Discharge from ears can be an indication of an infection. Trimming of nails will keep them away from infection and also help your pet to walk normally. If you brush their hair daily, it will prevent mats and help to detect skin problems early. 

 

Protection from Parasites

Fleas, ticks, heartworms and intestinal parasites can result in major health consequences for your dog. However, these can easily be prevented by the regular use of veterinary approved products. Heartworms are usually transmitted through mosquito bites. Fleas and ticks are not responsible for transmitting disease but can lead to itchy skin which can make your pet very uncomfortable. As change occurs in weather, it is quite difficult to guarantee when mosquitoes or fleas are not biting. 

 

Good Nutrition and Regular Exercise for Your Pet 

Balanced nutrition is the best key to keeping your pet healthy. Try to maintain a high-quality diet that addresses your pet’s specific health needs, breed, activity level and age. Regular exercise is another vital factor that keeps your dog healthy and active. Discuss a diet and exercise plan for your dog with your veterinarian. 

 

Dental Care 

Taking care of your dog’s teeth is also necessary. Brush your dog’s teeth twice a week with an edible toothpaste recommended by your veterinarian. An annual dental check-up is also recommended as part of your pets wellness exam.

Preventative Care for Pets of All Ages

The journey for your pet’s longevity & healthy lifestyle begins by being a few steps ahead of the game. The benefit of Preventative Care for Pets includes preventative panels that are the technology for early detection for a better prognosis & overall effectiveness of treatment.

We all love and care for our pets as if they were our own children. We pamper them, take them out for walks/play dates, buy them toys, clothes, treats, and other supplies to keep them happy and comfortable. They are important things to do as well as taking them into the Veterinary Clinic for their annual check-ups. Keeping up with their appearance is equally important as their internal health so they can continue to live a happy and beautiful life surrounded by loved ones.

The month of March is all about Preventative Care for pets no matter how old your pet might be. A preventative panel with early detection of diseases like Heartworm, viruses, internal parasites, functions of the liver and kidney, and much more. We want to help your pet live a longer, healthier life, so you can continue to create wonderful memories with them. Start your next visit with us with a Preventative Panel so that you’re ahead of the game.

The package includes a Veterinary Examination from head to tail as well as blood, urine, and fecal test. This provides the Veterinarian with information for a proper diagnosis and treatment of your pet. Vaccines will be recommended and administered if necessary for your pet.
