These procedures allow your vet to create a health history or your pet, and catch and treat small health issues before they turn into big problems.
What is included in preventive care? Checkups, vaccinations, blood work, intestinal parasite and urine screenings, dental cleanings, and other routine services fall under the preventive care category. The age, gender, breed, and general health status of your pet will impact the type of preventive services administered to them. Do puppies and kittens need preventive care? Yes. Illness doesn’t discriminate, and starting your pet of right away with preventive care will ensure they have a long, happy, and healthy life. Vaccines to prevent diseases like rabies and distemper should be given to your pet early on in his life, and spaying or neutering your pet early on will prevent many health and behavioral issues.
