Preventative Pet Services
Through preventative pet care, you do your part to maintain the health and wellness of your cat or dog. Preventative pet services from Creekside Animal Hospital and Wellness Center, serving Lafayette and West Lafayette, can help protect your pet against medical problems that can threaten his or her health. As any veterinary expert will attest, it’s easier and cheaper to prevent a disease than it is to treat one. Here’s what your feline or canine can expect from the extensive preventative care program at our veterinary facility.
Essential Aspects of Preventative Care
Preventative care from our animal hospital enables your pet to benefit from these pet services and more:
Annual Wellness Exams: Pet exams allows our Lafayette veterinary experts to monitor your pet’s health annually, so we can catch signs of health issues in their early stages for prompt and effective treatment.
Vaccinations: We offer core and non-core vaccinations personalized to suit your pet’s healthcare needs. Regular vaccinations protect your furry animal from deadly diseases.
Parasite Prevention and Control: We’ll test your feline or canine for parasites and examine his or her skin and fur for fleas, ticks, or other pests that carry diseases. We’ll also recommend medications to protect your companion pet year-round against parasite and pest infestations
Pet Dentistry: We provide annual dental exams, professional cleanings, and additional dentistry services, as needed, to improve your pet’s oral health.
Diagnostics: Our veterinary hospital offers comprehensive diagnostics that include digital x-rays, blood work, imaging, and skin tests for prompt, accurate diagnosis of health conditions.
Nutritional and Behavioral Counseling: We’ll help you establish a healthy diet for your pet suited to his or her age, health, and breed. Through behavioral counseling, we’ll help your pet develop good social skills that will enable him or her to integrate well into your family.
Personalized Veterinary Care
As no two animals are exactly alike in their healthcare needs, we’ll personalize your pet’s preventative care plan to keep him or her in optimal health. Senior pets may require more extensive pet services as their immune systems aren’t as strong in their elderly years, making them more susceptible to disease. Likewise, young animals require specialized care as their immune systems are still developing.
Purpose of Preventative Care
Preventative care is designed to protect your furry companion against sickness and disease. If your pet has a health condition, it can be detected during an annual exam. Early treatment prevents minor issues from escalating into major health conditions that can shorten your pet’s lifespan.
