Every pet owner wants their pet to live a long and healthy life. One important way our Homer Glen veterinarians help all pet owners realize this goal is through the administration of veterinary pet services aimed at preventative care. This encompasses a diverse range of treatments, diagnostic screenings and other types of tests, and it’s the best way to make sure you catch potential health issues in your pet early so that treatment can be most effective.
What Is Preventative Veterinary Care?
Preventative veterinary care aims to address your pet’s health before any problems arise. Prevention of the disease is often more cost-effective than waiting for an issue to arise and later having to treat it. The preventive veterinary pet services we provide include:
- Wellness exams
- Routine vaccinations
- Dietary consultations
- Parasite control
- Behavioral counseling
- Dental care and more
We take a holistic approach to caring for your pet, which enables us to assess how issues in one area, such as dental health, can contribute to problems elsewhere in your pet’s body. Keeping up to date on vaccinations allows you to prevent your pet from contracting potentially harmful or deadly diseases in the first place.
Our preventative pet services begin with a comprehensive wellness exam. These are ideally conducted annually for most pets, although very young and senior animals may need checkups more frequently. During these wellness exams, our veterinarian will discuss any concerns you may have about your pet’s behavior or overall health with you, and we can provide recommendations about the types of dietary changes or exercise regimens that may be appropriate.
If there is an area of concern, we offer a range of diagnostic and treatment services as well, including digital radiology, diagnostic ultrasound, and in-house lab services, so you’ll never have to wait long to learn the results of a test. We also offer spay and neuter pet services, which often lower your pet’s risk of developing certain types of diseases later in life and can also help to eliminate problem behaviors.
Comprehensive Veterinary Treatment
Bringing your pet in for routine vet checkups is the best way to make sure they are healthy and will remain so for the foreseeable future. Regardless of how long it’s been since your pet’s last checkup, it’s never a bad time to start taking advantage of the excellent and professional preventive care we offer at our Homer Glen veterinary clinic. We know your pet is an integral part of your family, and that’s why we always strive to provide the best possible care using state-of-the-art equipment and techniques.
