Preventative Care for Dogs

We provide a full range of preventative and wellness services in order to provide a long, healthy, and happy life for your dog. Preventative care also helps detect problems early, before they become severe and expensive.

We customize our recommendations based on your dog's medical history, hereditary factors, age, and lifestyle.

At least one physical examination per year is recommended. The physical examination includes:

  • Ear and Eye Examination

  • Cardiopulmonary analysis (heart and lung)

  • Temperature Reading

  • Abdominal Palpation

  • Dermatological Exam

  • Dental Exam

  • Musculoskeletal Evaluation

Vaccines

Vaccines are an important part of preventative care to ensure your dog's protection from infectious diseases. Core vaccines include Rabies and DA2PP (commonly referred to as Distemper).

 

Our veterinarian will recommend additional vaccines, such as Leptospirosis, Lyme, and Bordetella, based on your dog's risk of exposure, lifestyle, and overall health.

Diagnostic Testing

Diagnostic testing is recommended to be performed yearly to screen for Heartworm disease and intestinal parasites. In addition, blood panels are performed to screen for early detection of internal diseases.

Parasite Control

Parasite control is an essential part of preventative care. This includes prevention for heartworm, fleas and ticks, and intestinal parasites (such as roundworms). Controlling parasites not only helps protect your dog but you and your family too.

Other services offered include dental care and microchipping which are beneficial to your dog's overall health and well-being. We are happy to advise you on any questions you might have regarding your dog's health.
