Preventative Veterinary Care in Edmond, OK
Prevention Is the Best Medicine for Your Pets
For humans and pets alike, avoiding illness altogether is better than needing to treat an illness. Preventing disease in your pets is one of the best things you can do to ensure that they live long, happy lives. At Family Pet Hospital, we’re here to help your pets live healthy lives. We emphasize preventative care for your pets as one of our core services.
Care Plans for Your Pets
What does a preventative care plan look like?
- Regular wellness exams
- Annual blood tests
- Annual urinalysis
- Parasite prevention
- Spaying or neutering
Each of the steps above help us to establish a baseline of health for your pet. This baseline will help us pinpoint when there are changes in your pet’s health, enabling us to act quickly before a disease worsens. Keeping on top of your pet’s health as a regular practice can help increase your pet’s happiness and longevity.
We know that your pet is unique. Our veterinary professionals at Family Pet Hospital work with you to customize a preventative care plan specific to your pet. We factor in your pet’s age, breed, and life stage, among other considerations, when developing a care plan for your pet. For example, some breeds may be more prone to certain diseases that could impact their quality of life down the road. Senior pets have special needs that adolescent pets don’t. We’ll work with you to understand your pet’s medical history as part of developing a preventative care plan that best suits your pet.
Factors that might affect your pet’s preventative care plan include:
- Preexisting conditions
- Household environment
- Activity level
When you visit us at Family Pet Hospital in Edmond for preventative care for your pet, we take a thorough look at all of your pet’s characteristics and risk factors before coming up with a plan that’s right for them. At Family Pet Hospital, we’ll do everything we can to make sure your pet lives their best life.
