Protection & Prevention

We are dedicated to preventative care for your pet in order to keep common disorders and diseases from ever developing at all. 

When paired with regularly scheduled routine exams, parasite prevention and vaccinations form the core of your pet's lifelong routine healthcare plan.

Blood work, fecal exams and urine testing are at the core of good health care screening.  For adult pets aged 1 to 7 years we recommend blood work & fecal testing annually.  Senior Pets aged 8 years and older should have blood work, thyroid, and urine testing every 6 months.
