Preventive Care

Your pet needs ongoing life stage preventive care to ensure a long and healthy life. The information provided to your veterinarian at each examination becomes part of your pet’s medical history and can be critical if a sudden illness arises. Preventive visits assess the overall health of your pet. As a hospital accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association, our comprehensive examination screens your pet’s weight, body condition, pain scale, dental grade, and evaluates every major body system. By establishing a good relationship with your pet at an early age, we will be able to create an individual plan for his or her lifetime of good health and happiness.
