The Importance of Veterinarian Services
Owning a pet comes with great responsibility. One of the most important responsibilities is ensuring your pet high-quality veterinarian care services are provided throughout the pet's lifetime. Failing to provide quality care will not only pose a threat to the overall health of the pet but can also pose a threat to its life span. Routinely monitoring your pet's health will ensure a healthy life for your pet, also, pleasure for you and your family. Here are just a few of the services offered at Danforth Animal Hospital in Edmond, OK, to help your pet stay healthy and happy.
Pet Wellness Exams & Preventative Care
Our protocols for wellness are designed to not only prolong your pet's life but prevent disease. It is recommended to have your pet visit Danforth Animal Hospital for vet care that includes two comprehensive exams every year. The purpose of these exams is to administer the appropriate blood, urinalysis, thyroid hormone tests, and vaccinations as well as to conduct a thorough physical examination. Compared to humans, pets age at a much faster rate. Therefore, based upon your pet's current age and breed, our veterinarians will make recommendations on the frequency of pet wellness exams.
A pet wellness exam involves many steps to complete. With each bi-annual visit, the veterinarian will ask questions relating to your pet's overall wellness, behavior, eating habits, and elimination patterns during the assessment. Throughout the wellness exam, the doctor will perform a physical examination and make recommendations for a care plan especially for your pet that may include skin care, weight and dietary management, and dental care.
At Danforth Animal Hospital, we focus heavily on providing preventative vet care services to ensure the optimal health of your pet. Therefore, developing a health care regimen for your pet is the most effective means of doing so. Our veterinarian practice offers the following preventative care services:
- flea and tick treatments
