Preventative and Routine Veterinary Care

Our Ballston Lake Veterinarian Provides Preventative and Routine Veterinary Care

Preventative and routine veterinary care are a crucial part to maintaining your pet’s overall wellness. With proper nutritional support and the advice of our knowledgeable Ballston Lake staff, we can help keep your pet healthy and active well into their elder years. Routine exams and preventative treatment options can add years to the life of your pet. We understand they are a vital part of your family and you want them to be as healthy as possible at all times.

Wellness Checks

Making sure your pets receive regular wellness checks not only gives you the knowledge that they are healthy, it indicates whether there are subtle changes in their health that may lead to larger health complications. It also helps ensure your pets stay healthy through the natural aging process. Some pets may develop chronic conditions, while others experience good health into their later years. A wellness check will provide clues to any changes that are occurring and whether or not they need to be immediately addressed.

Elective Surgeries

Elective surgeries such as spaying, neutering, and declawing are often considered routine or preventative. They are not performed to save the pet’s life, but offer advantages towards maintaining the pet’s level of health. Our Ballston Lake veterinarian can discuss elective procedures with pet owners before any decisions are made. Spaying and neutering are the two most commonly requested elective procedures since they help to dramatically reduce the number of unwanted births and can reduce the risk of certain health complications.

Vaccinations and Maintenance Programs

Fleas, ticks and heart worms can have disastrous effects on pets. Maintenance programs are available that can help protect animals from these stubborn pests. Veterinarians will often prescribe monthly doses of preventative medications that will help keep pets from being amiable hosts to certain pests. Vaccinations are also part of many preventative and routine maintenance programs. Vaccinations for rabies and distemper are two of the most common that are available. Many areas require that pets have at least the rabies vaccine to be legally kept within certain municipal areas. New York State law specifically states that all dogs and cats must have a current rabies vaccination. Speak with our Ballston Lake veterinarian to find out what types of maintenance programs would benefit your pet.
