Central to our commitment in caring for your pets is the practice of preventative medicine. Routine physical examinations, vaccinations, early detection blood and urine testing, nutrition and parasite prevention are the mainstays of preventative care that help us to detect problems early, plan appropriate intervention, and help your pets to live long, healthy and happy lives.


Our pets age more quickly than we do, and they can't use their words to tell us when their health changes. A comprehensive examination from nose to tail helps us identify and monitor health changes by evaluating eyes, ears, teeth, heart and lungs, bone and joint health, skin lumps, and more.  


Keeping your pets up to date on vaccines is another pillar in complete preventative care management. Some diseases, such as Parvovirus, Parainfluenza, and Feline Leukemia are highly contagious and potentially fatal to other pets, while diseases such as Rabies and Leptospirosis can be transmissible to both pets and people. We tailor our vaccine protocol for each individual pet based on lifestyle, risk, and health assessment. 


Preventative early detection blood and urine testing allows us to identify changes in health that may not be visible on an examination. Testing evaluates the health and function of internal organs and immune system.  Routine screening is recommended and we have various panels to suit your pet's unique health needs. 


Parasites can not only be harmful to your pet, some can be transmitted to people too! We tailor deworming, flea, tick, and heartworm prevention to your pet depending on their lifestyle and individual needs. Because parasite infections often can't be seen by the naked eye, stool testing is used to check for intestinal parasites, and a blood test is needed to check for Heartworm, Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses.
