Preventing Problems Before They Arise: Pet Wellness at Woodbury Animal Hospital

inside imageNow more than ever, prevention is shifting to the forefront of many veterinary practices. By paying special attention to the potential warning signs of disease, we can detect costly medical conditions in pets before they become serious.

Preventative Pet Care: What We Can Do

Preventative care can take many forms and vary considerably from pet to pet. At Woodbury Animal Hospital, prevention begins with a physical exam to assess your pet's current health and risk factors. Other preventative measures may include:

  • Annual or biannual wellness consultation with our experienced veterinarians.
  • Flea and tick prevention - always recommended for any cat or dog that goes outside. It's a proactive approach that significantly reduces health risks for both pet and human family members, while cutting down on costs for pet owners.
  • Vaccinations against diseases most commonly associated with your pet's individual lifestyle. We work with Pfizer Animal Health and Merial vaccines to provide the most trusted, effective immunizations available.
  • Your pet's oral health - though commonly overlooked, your pet's teeth and gums can pose significant health risks if not properly maintained. Dental health problems affect the entire body and can shorten your pet's lifespan.
  • Microchip implantation – identifying a lost pet goes beyond healthcare. It's about the safety of the animal and peace of mind for loved ones.
  • Nutrition – we offer expertise beyond which brand of pet food to buy. We can help with questions on how much to feed, how often and which supplements to consider adding to your pet's diet. The answers for two pets in the same household can vary widely depending on breed, age, lifestyle and health issues.
  • Weight Management & Exercise – obesity issues are not just confined to humans. Practical advice from our Veterinarians is based on years of experience and the latest medical research.

Our Veterinarians work with you to find the right program of care to keep your animal companion well-protected against illness and injury. We also make every effort to educate owners on the steps they can take at home to stay aware of a pet's health and the warning signs to watch out for. Simple choices like food and exercise really do make a difference. We are happy to consult with you at every step.

By collaborating with owners in this way, we don't just treat patients - we actually keep pets healthy. Get in touch today to see what we can do for your pet. Here's to their good health!

The patience, compassion, understanding, and humanity that you showed me goes far beyond any definition of professional ethic. I am in your debt. I thank you.

I want to thank all of you for taking such wonderful care of me when I got my teeth cleaned and tooth pulled recently. I even came home with my coat neatly brushed and smelling mighty fine. I'm my old self again - Harley the Dog
