Keeping Your Pet Happy & Healthy with Preventative Care

Consider Valwood Animal Hospital your partner in your pet’s health. It’s important for your pet’s overall health and wellbeing that they come to see us at least annually. We’ll get your pet on a preventative care plan designed to suit their unique needs. Our goal is to keep your pet happy and healthy for many years.

Your Dallas veterinarian is here to help! Call (972) 635-4371 or contact us online to make your next appointment.

Preventative care looks different for different pets, but the ultimate goal is always the same: preventing disease before it takes hold of your pet’s health. The theory is that it is much easier to prevent disease in the first place than it is to try to cure a disease once it has set in.

At Valwood Animal Hospital, our services are tailored to your pet’s needs, and we always look to protect and enhance their health and overall quality of life. Our team will take their time to get to know you and your pet. We’ll ask questions about their habits and behavior, as well as any medical conditions that already exist. From there, our team will begin to craft a preventative care plan for your pet.

A preventative care plan can include services such as:

  • Dental Care
  • Flea and tick control
  • Parasite prevention
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Regular bloodwork
  • Vaccinations

Our Dallas veterinary team may recommend other service in addition to the ones listed above depending on your pet’s needs. With every service, our goal is to protect and enhance your pet’s health and quality of life for many years to come.

Vaccinate Your Pet

One of the best things you can do for your pet’s health is to ensure they are up to date with their vaccinations. These protect your pet from contracting dangerous diseases and help to prevent the spread to other pets. Your Dallas veterinarian will help you understand which vaccines are important for your pet based on their individual risk factors. We will most likely recommend a set of core vaccinations which are considered universally necessary for most pets. Core vaccinations protect against diseases that are considered to be severe or highly transmissible.

Core vaccinations for dogs include:

  • Parvovirus
  • Distemper
  • Rabies
  • Hepatitis

Core vaccinations for cats include:

  • Calicivirus
  • Rabies
  • Herpes virus type I
  • Panleukopenia

When you vaccinate your pet, you are not only protecting their health, but also the health of other pets in the community! It’s important to keep your pet’s vaccinations up to date.
