Here at Vivian Animal Hospital, we truly believe in the importance of preventative care as a way to keep your pets healthy.
We recommend annual routine examinations for your pets because they are the best way to promote overall health. It gives our veterinarians a chance to look at your pets’ overall condition and their weight. In senior patients, we recommend annual senior wellness lab work, which may allow us to diagnose a potential problem early before clinical signs appear. Routine exams and lab work also allows us to have a baseline, just in case your pets ever get sick.
Our goal with these examinations is to find any problems before they become serious. The longer these problems go undiscovered, the worse off your pet will be.
However, routine visits are more than just the examination. We enjoy hearing about your pets and how things are going. Conversation also allows us to determine if there might be something to look into further. Determining if your pets are up to date on their vaccinations is very important. We will also make sure you have enough flea and tick medication along with heartworm prevention.
If you have any questions about preventative care please don’t hesitate to contact us today at (318) 375-5555.
