The proactive approach to veterinary care.
Preventative care is your pet’s first line of defense. Annual exams help by preventing, diagnosing and treating disease in its early stages, often before any noticeable symptoms begin. The earlier treatment starts, the more effective it is, keeping your pet from unnecessary pain and suffering.
Preventive Health Measures
Annual Veterinary Exams: Garden Oaks Veterinary Clinic’s comprehensive annual exams evaluate temperature, skin and coat, ear and hearing acuity, lung and chest, internal health, oral hygiene, eye, and visual responsiveness.
Vaccinations: Updated vaccinations and booster shots are a highly effective way to prevent many common diseases and infections like distemper, rabies, and parvo.
Dental Care: Oral health is an important part of your pet’s life; annual teeth cleanings are the best method to maintain and improve dental wellbeing.
Parasite Control: Prevention and eradication is a simple and efficient process when anti-parasitic medication is used regularly.
Skin and Coat Care: Grooming and washing are fundamental aspects of proper pet hygiene. Skin and hair health prevents mange, matting, bacterial infections and more.
Proper Nutrition: Proper nutrition supports all of your pet’s bodily processes, bolstering their immune system and ensuring normal development.
Behavioral Evaluation: Changes in mood or behavior are often symptoms of underlying medical conditions—identifying these shifts help to identify and treat the root cause.
Exercise: Regular workouts support skeletomuscular and cardiovascular health in dogs of all ages. Comprehensive annual exams evaluate temperature, skin and coat, ear and hearing acuity, lung and chest, internal health, oral hygiene, eye, and visual responsiveness.
Young animals are like children; it’s a never-ending job to keep them safe and happy. Vaccinations are the best weapon against many viral and bacterial infections, preventing deadly diseases like canine parvovirus and rabies. It’s important to administer vaccinations while your pets are still puppies or kittens when their young immune systems are still developing and need protection to stay healthy. Vaccinations are vital to pet health and should be administered to every animal.
Our veterinarian will help you with every step of the vaccination process, including:
- Pet examination and introductory vaccinations
