You love your pet and want the best for them-- the most powerful care of all is preventative care. Fortunately, your pet can get the preventative wellness care it needs at Short Pump Animal hospital, no matter which veterinarian in Glen Allen VA he visits at our clinic.
The realm of preventative pet wellness care covers a lot of ground. Illness can strike any component or system in your pet's body, often in very subtle, insidious ways that you can't see or notice until the problem has become quite advanced. To head these issues off at the pass, your Glen Allen veterinarian recommends:
Two less-obvious types of preventative wellness care include flea/tick prevention and spay/neuter surgery. Keeping fleas and ticks off of your pet doesn't just free them from the misery of constant itching -- it also prevents the underlying skin inflammation caused by bites, and transmission of other, even more serious diseases. By the same token, spay/neuter surgery prevents more than just pregnancy. This form of sterilization removes the risk for certain deadly reproductive cancers, while also relieving your pet of compulsions that may lead to risky, dangerous actions.
Your Glen Allen veterinarian at Short Pump Animal Hospital can help your pet stay well from his first weeks through his "golden years." Puppy or kitten wellness care helps your baby grow strong. Regular preventative care throughout adulthood ensures a longer, happier life with fewer health complications along the way. Senior wellness care offers extra attention and monitoring for those age-related health problems. Call 804-360-0100 to start your pet's wellness journey!
