Read more about the importance of preventive care for your pet. 


Why Preventative Care Is Important

Preventative care is just as important for pets. Any veterinarian will tell you that preventive maintenance will benefit your pet. These benefits range from helping them avoid pointless suffering to saving them much money.

One of the most important reasons you should get preventative care for your pet is to help them have the highest quality of life. If they develop health problems, they will have to live in discomfort until they can treat them. Preventative care helps your pet stay healthy and happy.

It's also important to note that preventative veterinary care can save you much money in the long run. Preventive maintenance is relatively inexpensive compared to treatment for serious health problems. For example, preventative heartworm medication is affordable. However, treatment for pets who have already developed heartworm can be expensive. Remember that many pet insurance programs cover preventive care without requiring a co-pay.

Preventative Care Visits

The most important aspect of preventative care is regular exams. If you have a dog, it should be on heartworm medication. Also, your pet should be up-to-date on all their vaccinations. Finally, your pet must get a thorough battery of tests to ensure no hidden conditions.
