There are many things you can do for your pet’s preventative care and it’s important that you do them all. Keeping your pet healthy overall will greatly increase the length and quality of their life, catch diseases early enough to treat them and prevent future illnesses or decrease the severity of them, and cost you less in the long run. Veterinary bills can be expensive. Maintaining proper care of your pet and bringing them in for the recommended visits will mean lower vet costs in general because we can detect and treat many diseases and illnesses before drastic measures must be taken.
You can help in preventing future unnecessary veterinary visits by:
- Scheduling the recommended visits
- Keeping up-to-date with immunizations
- Administering the suggested (and prescribed) medications
- Usage of veterinary recommended flea and tick preventative year-round
- Usage of veterinary recommended heartworm preventative year-round
- Feeding your pet a complete and balanced diet to provide appropriate nutrition and maintain a healthy weight
- Brushing your pet’s teeth and fur daily
- Taking your pet on walks and giving them enough exercise
- Regularly getting your pet groomed (how often depends on the individual animal)
