Costa Mesa area veterinarian encourages preventative care for your pet
At All Creatures Care Cottage Veterinary Hospital, our veterinary team works closely with families to help extend the life and quality of life of pets. Preventative care is one way to achieve this. Costa Mesa area families should fully understand the importance of preventative pet care and how it can impact their pet’s quality of life, and their longevity.
Preventative care means being proactive about pets’ health. It typically requires pet parents to bring their animals in on a regular basis for routine examinations. At least once a year, families should bring their family pet into All Creatures Care Cottage Veterinary Hospital for an evaluation to assess their health and wellbeing. Immunizations may be administered, and families can ask any questions they may have about their pets’ health. Whether it’s a puppy or an elderly senior cat, we have the tools available to address any issues that may arise. We also offer emergency care for those unexpected situations that can cause worry and concern.
What is involved in preventative care?
Preventative care focuses on routine evaluations. This may be checking the pet’s fur, skin, teeth, nails, and eyes. Discussing medications, daily care, and diet is part of an evaluation.
Why preventative care?
Many pet parents tend to be reactive to their pet’s health rather than proactive. Preventative care helps reduce the risk of a variety of conditions that may threaten a pet’s health and wellbeing. We encourage families to bring their pets into the practice at least once a year for an examination and for any appropriate immunizations to ensure their health is extended.
