Preventative care is just as important for pets as it is for people. A few small steps taken today can prevent a bigger health issue for your pet later in its life. This is why our veterinary staff takes preventative care so seriously. Glen Eagles Pet Hospital, which provides services for pets in Edmond, OK, helps pets get the preventative care they need to live long and healthy lives. Here's how we can help.
Regular exams are important for pets. While young pets may need to come in just once a year for an examination, older pets should come in twice a year. Routine exams can catch health issues early on, ensuring that they do not continue developing. For example, a tumor caught early on could lead to a better prognosis for your pet compared to a tumor caught when it has grown significantly.
During these routine exams, our veterinarian also performs tests such as bloodwork. Blood tests can help identify things that could become a problem in the future, like abnormal kidney function. If you know that your pet is at risk for a specific disease, you may be able to take preventative measures like improving your pet’s water or nutrient intake.
Preventative Care Could Save Your Pet's Life
Did you know that a routine exam could be the factor that helps your pet live longer? For instance, getting your pet vaccinated regularly could be the difference between your pet getting a fatal disease or not. Regular vaccines and blood work can help you avoid major illnesses in the future.
Even if you do provide preventative care for your pet, you may still find yourself in an emergency. Perhaps your dog got into a chocolate bar or your cat was hit by a car. Getting emergency care now rather than waiting can prolong your pet's life and help it avoid unnecessary pain.
