Preventative Care

At Animal Medical Clinic, it is our goal to help our patients stay healthy and happy for as long as possible. For this reason, we focus our attention on preventative care and pet parent education.

To stay ahead of the curve with your pet’s health and to help avoid serious health problems later in your pet’s life, we recommend annual check-ups and consistent preventative care. It is always better for your pet’s health and more economical for you to prevent complications from progressive disorders, heartworms, parasites, and infectious diseases before they get established. This can be accomplished through regular checkups, vaccinations, and maintaining consistent preventative protection from heartworms, fleas, and ticks.

During annual examinations, we will explain potential health issues that your pet may face depending on the species, breed, stage of life, current health condition, environmental conditions, habitat, and so forth. Based on these factors, we will develop preventive protocols for your pet regarding the best ways to control fleas and ticks in your house, your yard, and on your pet.

Our approach to veterinary medicine is to be proactive rather than reactive. We like to maintain healthy lifestyles and practices to minimize hiccups and surprises for our pet parents. This includes providing guidance for your pet’s nutritional needs for each life stage, including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance, and performance. Additionally, our veterinarian can spay or neuter your pet at the appropriate age, not just to prevent unwanted litters, but to lessen the development of cancer in both genders of dogs and cats as well as rabbits.

Whether you’re in need of a checkup, diagnostic services and treatment for a sick pet, or preventative care to keep your pet healthy, the team at Animal Medical Clinic is committed to providing personal attention to the unique concerns of every pet owner.

Call today to schedule an appointment to start your pet on the road to a happy and healthy life. We offer preventative services to pets in the Tri-Cities area and beyond.
