Preventative Care

Even if your pet is healthy, regular visits to your veterinarian are important. These visits allow your pet to receive preventative care that can prevent disease and detect small problems that can be treated before they become bigger issues. At Methuen Veterinary Hospital in Methuen MA, we offer a range of preventative care options to keep pets healthy.

Why Is Preventative Care So Important For Pets?

Maintaining good health for pets is similar to that for humans. An annual exam, blood tests, dental care, maintaining a normal weight, and management of small health issues help people live longer, healthier lives. The same is true for pets because they experience many of the same health problems that people do. Regular preventative can help to reduce veterinary expenses and keep your pet active and healthy for many years. 

Many Types of Preventative Care

Preventative care covers a wide variety of veterinary treatments that help to prevent disease and maintain pet health. Vaccinations are a primary measure that helps pets avoid serious diseases that can take their lives. Dental care helps pets get the nutrition they need to stay strong and healthy. Products that control fleas and ticks help to avoid infestation on your pet and in your home and also prevent tick-borne diseases. Heartworm prevention is important to avoid a deadly disease. Blood testing can help detect problems with internal organs that can lead to illness and death. These measures work together to ensure your pet has a healthy life. 

Talk To Your Vet About Appropriate Preventative Measures for Your Pet

Each animal may have unique needs that require additional vaccinations or more frequent healthcare measures. In addition, health needs change as your pet goes from puppy or kittenhood to the senior years. New products and technologies make pet care easier and more effective than ever. Your veterinarian can provide advice about the best ways to keep your pet healthy at all stages of life.
