Preventive Care & Pet Exams
Personalized Wellness Care for Every Pet
Preventive care for cats and dogs is more than just a quick physical at the vet every year. It encompasses their whole health. At Country Squire Animal Hospital, your veterinarian will tailor each pet exam to meet the needs of your individual companion, yet there are some core pillars of wellness care that we’ll bring up for every exam.
We’ll perform a complete nose-to-tail exam to check for abnormalities. With our in-house lab, we can also run blood work, including complete blood counts and disease screenings to ensure your pet has no underlying conditions.
Pet obesity is a growing problem, so we take your pet’s body condition score at every visit and will talk to you about their diet. If we notice your pet is overweight, we’ll develop a healthy weight loss plan together with you.
Prevention is the key to long-term health. We recommend the core vaccines, rabies and distemper, for every cat and dog and will also talk to you about any needed lifestyle vaccines. Parasite prevention, too, is essential for your pet’s well-being as fleas, ticks, and heartworms can take a serious toll on your pet’s health. Prevention is the best cure!
