Preventative Care & Vaccines
Just like people, dogs and cats benefit from annual check-ups. During an annual check-up, your dog or cat will be critically examined in an attempt to find problems in their early stages. Any issues can then be addressed before they cause illness. During these appointments, we will also determine whether vaccinations will be necessary, recommend preventative measures against fleas and ticks, demonstrate preventative home dental care techniques and discuss proper nutrition.
At City Veterinary Care, we are knowledgeable about current research proving that most vaccinations are not necessary on a yearly basis. For dogs and cats moving into their senior years, we often recommend comprehensive blood testing so that we can learn how internal organs are functioning and intervene on pending illnesses. In addition, we are strong advocates for performing abdominal ultrasound imaging on an affordable, wellness basis in older pets for early, and life saving, cancer detection.
