Preventative care is something that your veterinarian will speak to you about as soon as you register your new pet with our practice. It is a common misconception that visiting your vet is something that you only need to do if your pet seems to be sick or injured. In actual fact, consulting with your vet on a fairly regular schedule could actually prevent your pet from being unwell in the first place. Alternatively, if a health problem has already developed, your vet is better placed to make an early diagnosis and arrange for prompt treatment, improving the likely outcome for your furry, feathered or scaled pet. This is because veterinarians like us can offer an important service known as preventative pet care.
