Along with regular veterinary examinations, there are vital steps in safeguarding your pet’s health. At Valley Veterinary Surgery we have annual health care programs for pets to ensure they are in good health. Besides giving your pet a comprehensive physical examination, we're also interested in its behaviours, previous medical and dietary history, and its environment including diet, emotional stresses, and other factors. It is important to consider all aspects of the animal's life when making any diagnosis or recommending treatments.
Preventative health care such as vaccinations, heartworm prevention, flea and tick treatments and worming, all play an important role in the long term wellness of your pet. Annual health checks are important to identify any potential health problems or age related illness and are a great time to make sure all vaccinations and parasite control treatment is up to date.
