ANNUAL SENIOR PET WELLNESS EXAMINATIONS (PREVENTATIVE MEDICINE)
We highly recommend regular annual comprehensive physical and dental examinations for your pet. This is especially important as pets grow older taking into account that one year in our lives equates to about seven years in an animal’s life span. These examinations frequently identify previously un-recognized latent medical problems and sometimes enable us to begin treatments before diseases progress to advanced stages. These examinations also enable us to establish diagnostic base lines that can then be tracked as pets approach their senior years.
Due to a nearly year round mosquito population in Arkansas monthly heartworm prevention is a must for both dogs and cats. We carry several different heartworm preventatives to meet your pet’s needs. Yearly heartworm tests are also strongly recommended. Preventative medicine re-fills may be ordered by telephone 479-279-6855 or on-line.
Regularly scheduled physical examinations are important in the early diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases. Did you know that having your pet examined by the veterinarian once a year is equivalent to a human seeing the doctor every seven years?
We assess your pet’s risk of exposure to diseases and develop a vaccine protocol that meets their specific needs. We offer three year vaccine programs when appropriate.
