Preventive animal care can help keep your pet healthy year after year, and wellness exams are an important part of preventative care. Wellness exams give your Toronto veterinarian a chance to uncover health problems in their early stages when they’re easier to treat. Preventive care services from Jane Animal Hospital in Toronto can help extend your pet’s life.
What Can You Expect from Preventive Animal Care?
There are many facets of preventive animal care that can benefit your pet. These include wellness exams, dental care, nutritional counseling, vaccinations, parasite prevention, and more. Our team will work with you to provide the quality care your pet needs to improve his health.
Wellness Exam – We recommend your pet have a wellness exam annually. During this exam, we’ll inspect your pet’s body from nose to tail for signs of health issues or disease. If your pet has skin problems, he could be suffering from allergies or fleas. If he has a problem walking, he could have arthritis in his joints. By catching health issues early on, you can save your pet from having to undergo complicated (and costly) treatments.
Diagnostics – Diagnostic services are an essential part of preventive care as they enable us to accurately diagnose health conditions in your pet. These services include blood, urine, and stool tests, ultrasound, and digital x-rays. If your pet shows signs of health issues, we may recommend diagnostics to help us identify the problem or confirm a diagnosis.
Vaccinations – We offer core and noncore vaccinations to safeguard your pet against infectious diseases. We’ll personalize a vaccination schedule for your kit or pup to ensure he gets the protection he needs.
Pet Dental Care – Regular dental care can help preserve the health of your pet’s teeth and gums. We recommend your pet have annual dental checkups and cleanings to remove plaque and tartar that can lead to dental issues and periodontal disease. Annual checkups enable us to detect and treat dental problems early on before they can cause permanent damage to your pet’s teeth.
Parasite Prevention – We’ll check your pet for parasites and treat infestations to restore his health. We’ll also recommend medications that can keep your pet parasite-free year round.
Nutritional Counseling – Your pet’s diet plays an important role in keeping him healthy and fit. We can recommend dietary changes that can enhance your pet’s health at every stage of his life. A nutritious diet will help your pet grow, protect him against disease, give him energy to play and keep him fit.
