Preventative Care: The Cause of Your Pet’s Good Health
Regular preventative care is important for the health and well-being of your pet. The veterinarians and staff at Valleydale Animal Clinic are here to make sure that your pet gets the necessary care to keep him or her a healthy member of your family.
Internal parasites can be a real hazard to your pet and can also affect other members of your family. Regular de-worming can keep your human family safe and your pet healthy and comfortable. Heartworm infestation is a serious health risk for dogs and cats that are not on a preventative program.
Check with your veterinarian to determine whether your pet needs to be tested before beginning preventative medications. Starting preventative heartworm medication can be dangerous for a dog that already has an infestation.
Flea and Tick Products
Fleas and ticks can cause serious health problems for your pets and your family. Ticks can carry disease that can be transmitted to dogs, cats and humans. Fleas can infest your home and cause allergic reactions for many dogs and cats. We will help you determine the best course of treatment to keep your pets and your home flea and tick free.
Maintaining your pet’s vaccination schedule is extremely important. Regular vaccines protect your pet against many diseases. Rabbles vaccination is a legal requirement for cats and dogs in most states and should be kept current to protect your pets and your family’s safety. Our staff will work with you to schedule an appointment that fits into your schedule and makes caring for your pet easy and convenient.
We realize coming to the veterinarian can be stressful for your pets (and you!) Valleydale Animal Clinic has products that can help during these and other stressful situations (such as storms, fireworks or visitors to your home). Ask us about Zylkene, Feliway or Adaptil to help reduce the stress on your pet when they come visit us.
