Yearly Recommendations for Adult Dogs
At Arden Animal Hospital, we believe that prevention is the best medicine! To keep your best friend healthy and happy, we recommend certain preventative services annually.
One of the most important components of good preventative care includes a yearly physical exam by one of our compassionate veterinarians. They have the knowledge and skill to detect issues early and may be able to fix them before they turn into bigger issues.
These are the vaccines that every adult dog should receive no matter what their breed or lifestyle.
The necessity of these vaccines depends on your dog's specific lifestyle. Call our hospital or an appointment with one of our veterinarians to discuss whether they may be necessary for your pet!
Whether lap dogs or working farm dogs, our pets come into contact with a whole host of parasites everyday. Many of these can even be transmitted to humans! Because of this, we recommend yearly fecal and heartworm testing as well as monthly preventatives including heartworm, flea and tick prevention.
Early Detection Labwork
Our dog's medical problems can be costly, especially if they have reached an advanced stage without us even knowing! To detect many treatable problems early, Arden Animal Hospital recommends annual blood, and sometimes urine testing. These tests check metabolic function as well as the health of many of your pet's most important organs, such as the liver and kidneys. Catching possible problems early can greatly reduce the cost of treatment of many common problems and extend your pet's life if caught early enough.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to give our hospital a call and schedule an appointment today!
