“An Ounce of Prevention…”
The old saying is true, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of a cure. At Faulkville Animal Hospital, we believe that the best way to help your pet have a long, happy, and healthy life is to have regular checkups with our veterinarians. Early detection and treatment of many ailments can greatly improve the outcome for your pet. Our comprehensive and thorough wellness care services are tailored to the specific needs of your pet. During a wellness visit, our team of pet health professionals will assess your pet’s individual needs and make recommendations based on the age, breed, and lifestyle of your pet. These simple things can add years to your pet’s life.
A thorough head-to-tail exam performed by out doctors helps us detect any health concerns in the early stages. This can make treatment easier for your pet and your pocketbook. We are also able to prepare you for any long-term care needs. We want to help your pet live as long and as healthily as possible. During your comprehensive exam, we will discuss topics such as nutrition & weight management, dental health, and parasite prevention.
Testing & Diagnostics
We recommend blood and stool testing to ensure that there are no abnormalities that cannot be seen from the outside. Intestinal parasites, heartworms, anemia, liver & kidneys, and other internal organs, that are not visible externally on an exam or to the pet owner, are frequently detected. Finding these problems before serious clinical signs arise will help your pet to have a better quality of life.
Vaccinations & Booster Shots
Vaccinations are recommended based on your pet’s lifestyle and can help prevent many of the uncomfortable and deadly diseases that affect our companions. At the same time, many owners are concerned about over-vaccination. We’ll work together to develop a customized plan that fits your pet’s specific needs and keeps them protected. Contact us today for more information and to schedule your pet’s Wellness Visit. We are here to help you keep them healthy!
