Preventive & Wellness Care
Cat and Dog Exams and Wellness Care in Colorado Springs, CO
At the Animal Hospital of Colorado Springs, we provide complete life stage preventive care for your furry family member. We recommend annual pet exams for adult pets and biannual visits for senior pets, who are over the age of seven. Pet preventative care can alert us to any underlying medical conditions your loyal companion may be suffering from. Senior pets are especially susceptible to developing issues rapidly, making regular check-ups twice a year that much more important. Call (719) 579-9488 to schedule a cat or dog healthcare and wellness exam today!
Thorough Preventative Care Vet Visits
Pet preventative care visits at the Animal Hospital of Colorado Springs consist of complete pet exams from nose to tail. This includes looking over ears, eyes, nose, mouth, skin, and toes, as well as basic functions of the heart, lungs, and joints. Some of the other things we look for include:
- Tartar build-up along your pet’s gum line.
- Unusual or irregular lumps and growths.
- Any significant weight gain or loss.
- Dandruff or “hot spots.”
- Evidence of external and/or internal parasites
- Food or skin allergies.
- Watery discharge from their eyes or nose.
Depending on what we learn about your pet’s health, we may order advanced diagnostics to pinpoint medical conditions even further.
Discussing Your Pet’s Care
Sometimes it can be confusing to know when you should get certain essential services done for your pet. A pet preventative care visit is a good time to get more information about teeth cleanings, vaccinations, and spay and neuter. We want to nurture not just the bond between you and your pet, but also between you and your veterinarian. The preventative care visit gives us a time to individualize your service at the Animal Hospital of Colorado Springs and come up with a detailed game plan about how we’ll be caring for your pet. We encourage you to make a preventative care visit for a new pet, so we can check their overall health and recommend needed vaccinations they may not have yet.
