The old adage, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” certainly holds true when it comes to pet health. Even if your pets aren’t excited about going to the vet, the cost of prevention is often a fraction of the cost of treating a disease or problem once it has become more advanced, and early diagnosis and treatment of developing problems or diseases can increase the likelihood of successful outcomes. Georgetown Veterinary Hospital provides preventative care for dogs and cats to keep them healthy well into the future.
Preventive healthcare involves a multi-faceted approach that includes veterinary evaluation of your pet’s overall health and risks of disease or other health problems. Based on the findings, your veterinarian will provide you with recommendations for your pet’s nutrition, dental care, vaccinations and heartworm/flea/tick prevention, as well as recommendations specifically tailored to your pet’s health status and risk factors.
If you’re not sure whether your pet is up to date on his/her preventative care or need to make an appointment, call 434 977 4600.
