About Preventative Care
Preventative pet care services are those that promote health and wellness long-term by helping to prevent diseases and other health conditions. Vaccinations and pet wellness exams are some of the key components of preventative care. A Murrieta, CA, veterinarian on our veterinary team offers more than these basic services to keep your furry friend at the top of his game. Our animal hospital also provides:
- Diagnostics in the form of digital x-rays and ultrasounds to uncover hidden medical issues and make accurate diagnoses of health problems so your pet can get prompt treatments
- Nutritional counseling to ensure your pet is getting the nourishment he needs for his age, size and breed
- Parasite and heartworm testing, prevention, and treatment to keep your pet pest-free year round
- Dental exams and cleanings to protect and preserve your pet’s teeth
- Spay & neuter surgery to prevent litters and protect your pet from reproductive infections, cancers, and tumors
Importance of Annual Pet Wellness Exams
Annual exams consist of a inspection of your pet to assess his overall health and detect warning signs of sickness or disease. We’ll record our findings in your pet’s records for reference in gauging his state of health in the future. If your pet shows signs of abnormalities, we’ll order x-rays or tests to diagnose his condition. The sooner problems are detected, the sooner your pet can get treatment, which can help expedite his recovery.
Pet exams also serve to expose weaknesses in your pet’s care, so they can be corrected to avoid health problems in the future. A veterinarian on our veterinary team may, for example, notice your pet has gained too much weight and recommend changes to his diet to avoid problems with obesity, diabetes and arthritis. This is also a good time to ask any questions you may have about your pet’s diet, exercise, or care to improve his overall health.
Vaccinations can be an important part of your pet’s wellness plan as they protect him from life-threatening diseases. We’ll help make sure your furry friend gets the core vaccines he needs and personalize other aspects of his vaccination schedule to suit his age, health, and lifestyle.
