Preventive Care Clinic

The first Saturday of every month is dedicated to our preventive care practice, a special initiative aimed at promoting the well-being of more pets. On this day, we provide Preventive Care Services on a first-come-first-served basis, without charging an exam fee. It's our way of making it easier for pet owners to prioritize their furry companions' health and happiness.

Here is a brief overview of what will occur during these visits:

  • No appointments will be taken on these days. Services will be provided on a first-come-first-serve basis.
  • New clients will be asked to fill out our new client form. You can print this form from our website and fill it out at home to help shorten your wait time.
  • A veterinary assistant will collect a simple patient history for each pet that you may bring. This will include diet, previous vaccination history, parasite prevention, and any recent health issues. If you can bring a copy of your pet's most current preventive care history, this can be very helpful.
  • At this time, we will also go over the services that will be offered and help you make the selection that is in the best interest of your pet's health.
  • After collecting the history, the assistant will accompany your pet to the treatment room, while you remain in the consultation room. At this time, the veterinarian will perform a limited exam to ensure that your pet is healthy enough to receive the selected services and obtain samples, if needed, for heartworm and intestinal parasite testing.
  • After completing the services, the assistant will return your pet to you and go over any findings or recommendations. You may also purchase heartworm prevention and flea and tick control if needed. Heartworm prevention will only be dispensed if a heartworm test is performed and the test results are below detectable limits.

The examination provided during our preventive care practice serves to assess your pet's general health and ensure they are fit for preventive care measures. However, it should not be seen as a substitute for a comprehensive wellness examination, which entails a detailed medical history review, a thorough physical examination, and a consultation with a veterinarian to provide recommendations aimed at enhancing your pet's overall health and quality of life.

It's important to note that our preventive care practice does not fulfill the requirements necessary for refilling medications other than heartworm preventives and parasite control. Additionally, please be aware that only annual vaccinations will be administered during this clinic. While vaccine titers and three-year vaccines are often considered safer for our pets, we've opted to focus on keeping costs low, and therefore these options will not be available during the preventive care practice.
