Will preventative care detect illnesses in my pet?

Preventative care helps keep your dog healthy. It can help detect subtle changes in your pet's health that you may not notice when you see your pet every day. We can compare their current health to our records from previous years, looking at changes in weight, coat condition, grooming habits, and even difficulties in movement. These changes can guide us in determining what needs to be done for your pet's health.

How does preventative care help my dog in all stages of life?

Preventative care is important at all stages of life. For young dogs, we recommend annual blood work which allows us to set up a health baseline and watch trends as the dog ages. As your pet ages, we recommend semi-annual exams, especially for larger breeds that may age faster. This helps us catch potential health problems early.

Is it less expensive to take part in preventative care versus treating an illness?

Yes, preventative care is generally less expensive than treating an illness. If we can detect a health issue before it becomes serious, we can help extend your pet's lifespan and improve its quality of life.

Can preventative care save my dog's life?

In some circumstances, yes. Preventative care can catch diseases early and improve quality of life, especially in older pets. It also helps maintain the important human-animal bond we have with our pets.
