If cats and dogs could talk, it might be easier for their owners to sense when things are wrong. Unfortunately, your pets can be skilled at hiding illness or pain. Signs of serious problems can be nearly invisible to an untrained eye, but regular care from your Albuquerque veterinarian will help you stay informed about your pet’s state of health.
Cat and dog care in professional hands is the easiest way to ensure your pets will maintain an active and healthy lifestyle. Regular veterinarian exams can help uncover and treat existing medical or dental problems, and preventive care keeps other problems from developing.
CARE FOR YOUR PETS WITH HELP FROM OUR ALBUQUERQUE VETERINARIANS
Preventive health care in the form of regular checkups allows you and your veterinarian to keep on top of any potential health issues for your pet. Whether its tooth decay or a systemic illness, catching health issues early is always ideal. When you bring your cat or dog into your Albuquerque veterinarian for regular exams, we will perform testing that may include blood tests, ultrasounds, radiographs, X-rays, and urine tests to detect and diagnose medical conditions. Our veterinarians are trained to see signs of many ailments and can prescribe proper treatment from medication to surgery.
Regular checkups are also a good time for pet owners to get pets vaccinated against dangerous and potentially fatal diseases. Vaccinations strengthen pets’ immune systems and help their bodies stay strong and healthy.
Dental exams are another important element in preventive care for cats and dogs. Regular checkups go hand in hand with feeding your pet a healthy diet. Your veterinarian can exam teeth and gums for signs of decay or inflammation, clean teeth thoroughly to eliminate tartar and plaque, and walk you through home dental care steps you can do on your own.
Preventive cat and dog care is the most important part of keeping your pet alive and well and shows your concern for their wellbeing.
