Adult Pet Wellness and Preventative Care

Many diseases that may afflict your pet can be avoided or minimized by prevention and early detection. Our veterinary team at Lake Animal Hospital is committed to providing comprehensive preventative care for your pets to enhance their well-being and quality of life. We emphasize preventive pet care with annual exams, lifestyle risk assessments, tailored vaccinations, and parasite control.

Annual Exams

An annual physical exam is an investment in your pet’s future health. A physical exam can identify subtle health problems that go unnoticed at home. Early detection of health concerns allows us to address a problem before it becomes significant.

An annual exam also provides an opportunity to discuss health threats associated with your pet’s individual risks that may change over time and with age. Vaccination decisions, food choices, exercise routines, parasite control, and behavioral changes should all be reviewed annually to help ensure long-term wellness.

Vaccinations

We recommend a balanced schedule of vaccines to protect your pet from a range of dangerous but preventable diseases. Vaccinations are a safe and effective way to protect your pet from deadly diseases for which there are no treatments. All vaccines used at Lake Animal Hospital are mercury free.

Parasite Prevention

Internal and external parasites, such as fleas, ticks, roundworms, hookworms, and heartworms, are a constant threat to our pets. Parasites jeopardize the health of your pet by carrying diseases, stealing nutrients, damaging organs, and depleting the immune system. Parasitic infections also cause your pet extraordinary discomfort.

Many pets have no symptoms early in the disease process, so we recommend annual blood and fecal screening tests for early detection and treatment. These parasitic diseases are easy to prevent prevented by administering monthly preventive.

Many of the parasites that afflict pets can also be transmitted to people. A parasite control program will not only protect your pet’s health. It will safeguard your family’s health too!
