The Importance of Pet Preventative Care

Creating habits of good, responsible pet care teach responsibility and compassion for human family members, promotes a long and healthy loving relationship with pets, and cuts down on expenses and inconvenient emergencies. Preventing problems before they start and catching illnesses in their earliest stages require you to understand and observe your pet’s behavior. If your pet’s behavior changes suddenly, you may want to bring them to our veterinarian to be examined.

Vaccinate Your Pet

The worst health catastrophes often come from severe illnesses, some of which are shockingly easy to contract through bacteria and viruses. The good news is that immunizations that prime your pet’s system to resist infection offer a convenient method of protection. Vaccinations represent a wise and worthwhile investment in the long-term health of your pet, warding off the most threatening illnesses that could potentially cause pain and suffering. Talk with Dr. Eleanor Acworth about an immunization schedule for your pet. She will recommend the proper vaccinations based on your pet’s age, lifestyle, and other factors.

Safe Home Environment

Curious and energetic, pets love to explore, using their senses of smell and taste everything. Pets also explore the world with paws, tongues, and teeth. Pet preventative care includes eliminating everyday safety hazards so your pet does not end up hurting itself. Pet preventative care includes blocking their access to power cords, outlets, and heavy objects. Be observant about stovetops, curling irons, and other potential hazards that could injure your pet.

Wellness Exams

Instead of rushing your pet to the veterinarian when they show distressing symptoms, schedule periodic wellness exams. Our veterinarian will get to know your pet when they are calm and healthy so that differences in behavior and appearance will be easily spotted. Allowing a professional to examine your pet is the best way to spot the earliest signs of anything wrong and to intervene so it doesn’t develop into anything worse.
