Preventative care is vital to maintaining your pet’s health and happiness. At Animal Care Clinic, we are driven to prevent illness and disease in all of our four-legged family members. We stress that you should schedule annual wellness examinations for your pet.
The Health Profile
At each visit, our veterinarians will perform a thorough nose-to-tail examination. The information we collect during these exams allows us to create a complete health profile for your pet. Using this profile we have a better chance of early detection of any potential problems your pet may encounter.
A Typical Examination
During your pet’s first visit to our clinic, we will weigh your furry friend, verify all of your information, discuss his or her health profile and history, and discuss any issues. We perform a full physical examination and run any tests. Then, we sit down with you to discuss any recommended treatments.
Diet and Nutrition
Proper diet and nutrition are vital to keeping your pet happy and active. After the examination, we will discuss any emerging health issues with you. We will work with you to create a course of diet and nutrition tailored to your pet’s individual needs. This will keep them healthy and happy for many years to come.
Stages of Life
The needs of a pet differ whether they are a puppy or kitten, adult pet, or a companion in their senior years. Specialized life-stage care is important. We can survey the health profile as your pet grows, comparing where they were to where they are. This gives us a good picture for how to treat age-related conditions.
Vaccinations are essential to your pet’s overall health and wellness. No longer are they simply for the prevention of rabies. Modern vaccinations defend against a wide variety of once-fatal diseases.
Each patient is unique at Animal Care Clinic, but a traditional vaccination schedule is the same. We will work closely with you to ensure your pet’s vaccinations are on schedule.
Essential Care Plans
Pets are members of the family, and they grow up so fast. In fact, pets age 5-7 years for each human year. By 6 months your new puppy or kitten is the equivalent of a 3 year old, which is why an Essential Care Plan that includes all of the examinations and preventive medicine your pet needs on an annual basis is vital to helping them live a long and happy life.
What is an Essential Care Plan?
An Essential Care Plan is an annual package of services that includes the optimal preventive health care services that your pet needs to stay happy and healthy. Our plans are based on the age and the specific needs of each individual pet. Our veterinarians will recommend the plan that is best for your pet based on age and other relevant factors. With an Essential Care Plan, the cost of care can be spread out over 12 months in the form of small automated monthly payments. Pet owners will also enjoy a 10% discount on additional services that are not covered under the plan, as well as a 10% discount on the purchase of a twelve month supply of heartworm, flea & tick preventative medications. It is just one more way we make it easy for pet owners to provide the highest quality healthcare for their pets.
