Wellness and preventative care

Preventative Care (and Early Detection)

PREVENTATIVE HEALTHCARE involves changing the focus of healthcare from treating SICKNESS to promoting and maintaining GOOD HEALTH. Preventative care occurs before your pet becomes ill, or you notice any symptoms, and the goal is to prevent or delay the onset of illness and disease.

EARLY DETECTION involves screening patients to uncover problems that are not obvious to pet owners or not detectable on a physical examination.

PREVENTATIVE and EARLY DETECTION HEALTHCARE involves a variety of services including:

  • Vaccinations
  • Parasite (flea and worm) control
  • 6-monthly physical examinations
  • Screening laboratory tests
  • Nutritional and weight management advice

When preventative care is used, and illnesses are caught early enough, we can avoid and better control health problems in our pets. Early detection allows for early management of illnesses - this often results in:

  • A better prognosis
  • Less pain and distress
  • Lower treatment costs

Allowing our pets to live HEALTHIER, HAPPIER & LONGER LIVES.
