Like humans, animals are vulnerable to illnesses and diseases as well as accidents, and need medical care to overcome the health problem.
When it comes to keeping your pet healthy, proper medical care should include a thorough yearly physical examination, including necessary vaccinations. Your pets health should be monitored to prevent health problems and detect diseases early.
Preventive Medical Care Programs
At Tsawwassen Animal Hospital we tailor a vaccination protocol based on our pet’s “life-style” and risk factors during your pets physical examination. We also recommend an annual blood work evaluation for our geriatric patients over 7 years of age. This entails running a complete blood count, chemistry screen and urinalysis. Repeating these tests yearly and monitoring the results will provide us with vital information on any changes your pet might be experiencing to the liver, kidneys or other vital organs. Diseases can be detected early and a successful medical care and treatment plan can be established.
