Like people, pets need wellness exams to monitor the state of their health. Unless your pet shows obvious symptoms of a medical condition or disease, you may not know he's sick or in pain. Lafayette & West Lafayette pet owners can bring their furry friend to Creekside Animal Hospital and Wellness Center for a comprehensive wellness exam to confirm they're in good health. Wellness exams are just one aspect of comprehensive vet care.
Benefits of Comprehensive Vet Care
Working with an animal hospital that offers comprehensive vet care services is the best way to keep your pet in optimal health. At Creekside Animal Hospital, your pet can benefit from the following vet care services and more:
Wellness Exams: Through routine checkups, your Lafayette veterinarian can help keep your pet healthy over the years. Many pet diseases can be prevented through regular pet care. During a wellness exam, your Lafayette veterinarian will check your dog or cat from head to tail for signs of sickness or disease. We’ll check your pet’s eyes for cataracts, ears for infections, mouth for oral disease and inspect his skin and fur for skin irritations or infections that can affect his health. We’ll also listen to your pet’s heart and lungs and test his joints for arthritis.
Vaccinations: If your pet is due for booster vaccinations, we’ll make sure he gets the vaccines he needs to protect his health. We offer core and non-core vaccinations for dogs, cats and baby pets to protect them against diseases that can seriously impair their health.
Dermatology Services: Skin problems such as abnormal itching, dryness, rashes, sores and infections are often signs of allergies or diseases. If your pet is suffering from skin problems, we’ll perform skin tests to determine the cause of these issues, so we can recommend the appropriate treatment.
Diagnostics: We offer in-house diagnostics to include blood and urine tests for prompt and effective diagnosis of pet conditions, so your pet can start treatments without delay.
Parasite Control: Parasites such as heartworm can cause extensive damage to your pet’s organs. Severe cases can even lead to death. We offer heartworm prevention and treatment services to safeguard your pet’s health.
Senior Pet Care: Senior pets have unique veterinary needs due to their age. As your pet grows older, he’s more susceptible to health issues like cataracts, joint problems, kidney problems and more. We cater to the health needs of senior dogs and cats to improve their quality of life in their senior years.
