Preventative Pet Care-Ensuring Your Pets Live a Long, Healthy Life

Your pets are a part of your family, so it only makes sense that you would want to provide them with the best care possible. Providing your pets the preventative care that they need, including up-to-date vaccinations, routine pet exams, and flea and tick prevention, can help them to live a long, healthy, and happy life. Here are a few tips provided by South Granville Animal Hospital in Creedmoor, NC to ensure your pets are up-to-date on preventative care.

Preventative Pet Care-Ensuring Your Pets Live a Long, Healthy Life

Up-To-Date Vaccinations

Scheduling routine pet exams and vaccinations can help to protect your pets from a wide range of diseases. For instance, the rabies vaccine protects you and your beloved animals from contracting the potentially fatal virus. Along with rabies vaccination, it’s essential that they are current on all vaccines. Our veterinarian in Creedmoor can help create a vaccination schedule for your beloved animals.

Flea and Tick Prevention

It is extremely important that you check your pets daily for fleas and ticks, especially if they are frequently outside, or after walking near or through high grass and wooded areas. It is also good idea to keep living area clean because the larvae of fleas and ticks can hide and mature in areas such as the carpet and furniture. If your pets happen to have fleas or ticks, schedule an appointment with our veterinarian. Our vet is able to provide medications, and offer tips on getting rid of the parasites as well as preventing them from occurring.

Senior Pet Care

Prevention methods for seniors are just as important as preventative care for puppies and kittens. As your pets begin to age, it is important to talk with our vet about specific types of senior pet care. For instance, if your senior pets are showing signs of arthritis, they should receive treatment as soon as possible in order to reduce their pain and stiffness. Our veterinarian may prescribe anti-inflammatory or pain medications for your pets.  

One of the most important things you can do for your pets is to schedule routine pet exams. From the time they are puppies and kittens to the time they become seniors, your pets will require special care to ensure that they are healthy throughout their life. To schedule a pet exam or preventative care, contact South Granville Animal Hospital in Creedmoor, North Carolina at (919) 528-3591.
