Whether you have a baby kitten or a sweet old dog that is getting on in years, Bell County Animal Clinic has a wellness package designed for your pet! At each phase of a pet’s life there are different health needs, and it’s always less expensive to prevent health problems than to treat them. The caring doctors at Bell County Animal Clinic have designed our health and wellness packages with the prevention of common pet issues in mind.
When your puppy or kitten is very young, one of the most important health considerations is vaccinations, and our wellness plans for young animals always include them. Bell County Animal Clinic offers a full-line pharmacy with the most advanced vaccines available in veterinary medicine.
Heartworm preventative in both dogs and cats are equally important in our young pets, and our veterinary clinic has the safest and most effective products for your pet as well. Additionally, our experienced veterinarians will recommend flea, tick and intestinal parasite control that are right for your pet and their living conditions.
Finally, the doctors at Bell County Animal Clinic recommend spaying or neutering all pets not to be used for breeding purposes between four (4) and six (6) months of age. A spay or neuter not only prevents unwanted litters of puppies or kittens, but can help your pet avoid certain health problems as they age.
Once your pet becomes a young adult, vaccine boosters and heartworm and parasite preventatives continue to be very important. Other preventive and routine health care is also included in Bell County Animal Clinic’s wellness packages.
For example: even as young as one year of age, pets begin to need regular dental care both at home as well as from an experienced veterinarian. Our caring doctors and staff will clean and polish your pet’s teeth, and teach you the best methods of cleaning at home as well.
Another consideration for adult animals is nutritional counseling, which helps determine appropriate foods and quantities for your pet.
While pets age differently depending on species, size and breed, generally speaking, all pets are seniors by age 7. As your pet continues to age, many of the same things that humans face can cause issues for your pets–including diabetes and osteoarthritis. At this phase of their lives, more frequent exams including blood work may be a part of their senior workup.
At Bell County Animal Clinic, our doctors can run your pet’s blood work in our lab at the clinic, meaning you get the results during your visit instead of having to wait for several days for the information to come back from a lab. Blood chemistries, complete blood counts, electrolytes and thyroid levels can all be completed in-house.
Remember that just like people, pets’ needs begin to change as they grow from small animals to senior pets. Our caring and experienced doctors have a wellness program for your pet regardless of their current age.
