Preventative care encompasses all aspects of your pet’s well-being. Nutrition and exercise are paramount in the well-being of all creatures! Proper vaccination for your pet’s risk factors can prevent deadly diseases. We are proud of our history of 3-year vaccines (see Our History on Dr. Vaughn's career)! Prevention of internal parasites (heartworms, intestinal worms) and external parasites (fleas, ticks) are important to your pet’s health and comfort, and your family's health as well.
We believe your pet should be a positive addition to your family, and we strive to help you prevent or modify unwanted behaviors. Examining your pet, and discussing these issues demands appropriate time and attention. Our scheduling ensures plenty of time to answer any questions you may have.
As your pet ages, it's preventative care needs will change. More frequent exams may help in discovering age-related diseases in their early stages. Nutrition, exercise, behavior, vaccination, parasite control all remain important, but other issues, such as dental health, may emerge. Diagnostic testing, such as bloodwork and/or xrays, may be needed to determine the best course of treatment for your aging pet. Our hope is to allow your pet to live a long and happy life.
