Preventative Health Care
Preventative healthcare provides the foundation for your four-legged family member’s ongoing good health and wellbeing. Annual or semi-annual (recommended for senior dogs and cats) visits allow our veterinarians to gather a complete and accurate snapshot of your pet’s health so that any changes can be addressed in a timely manner and monitored. Early detection of illness can improve the chances of a good outcome for your pet, and can mean much fewer expenses for you in the long run.
Making sure your pet has permanent identification, such as a microchip, is one of the easiest ways to ensure Fido or Fluffy remain a lifelong healthy member of your family. Microchips are typically inserted while your pet is under general anesthesia during spay or neuter surgery, but can be placed at any time. Our veterinary care team members complete all of the registration paperwork for you and you receive a customized tag including the microchip number. Stray animals presented to a veterinarian or shelter or picked up by the police are routinely scanned for microchips. When a microchip is found, the chip company is contacted and owner information is shared to make sure a pet is returned to its family as quickly as possible
