At College Park Road Veterinary Clinic, our approach to veterinary care is to try and prevent illness. We want to catch issues before your pet is seriously ill with a major health problem, and when they’re easier to treat and have better outcomes. To do that, we recommend regular wellness and preventive care which includes:
Annual Exams: At a wellness exam, our veterinarian will assess your pet’s physical health from nose to tail and perform a diagnostic work-up, which can also include blood, fecal, and urine screenings.
We offer wellness packages for puppies and kittens that include all the routine services your pet needs to maintain excellent health at a reasonable price. We also have fixed-price wellness packages for adult pets that are designed with lifestyle and age taken into consideration. Ask your veterinarian for details and he or she can help you determine which package is the right fit for you and your pet.
Routine Dental Care: Dental disease is the number one diagnosed health problem in dogs and cats across America. We will closely monitor your pet’s oral health, give you the information and tools to provide preventative care at home, and if needed we can provide regular dental cleanings. These cleanings also include a thorough evaluation of your pet’s mouth and teeth as well as digital dental X-rays for an accurate assessment.
Parasite Prevention: Parasites can cause significant disease in your pet, and potentially death. It’s a common misconception that you will see all parasites in your pet’s stool, or that primarily indoor pets aren’t at risk of getting parasites. All pets are at risk for fleas, ticks, heartworm, and intestinal parasites, and many can only be found through microscopic exam or specific testing.
What’s also not widely understood is that many of these parasites and the diseases they can carry are zoonotic—meaning they can be transmitted to your human family as well, especially children. Regular screening is a must, and we offer many options for parasite prevention. Your veterinarian can help you determine which one is best for your pet and your budget, so you can keep your entire family safe and well.
