As in humans, veterinary preventative medicine involves a proactive, multi-faceted approach. As owners, we play no small part in the health and well-being of our pets. This is why preventative medicine begins at home, with proper nutrition, exercise and socialization. It continues at your veterinarian with regular health and wellness checkups, vaccinations, and preventative medications for things like heartworm and fleas and ticks. It is our goal to offer the pet owner our best advice, and to formulate a plan together based upon your pet’s overall health and lifestyle, designed to keep them healthy and happy for years to come. The cost of prevention often pales in comparison to the cost of treating a problem once it has become more advanced.
