Wellness Care: Cat & Dog Exams, Parasite Prevention & Vaccinations
At Central Florida Vets in Apopka and Sorrento, we swear by preventive medicine as the best way to keep your pet healthy and active. The primary puzzle pieces of wellness and preventive care include yearly or twice-yearly cat and dog exams, vaccines, heartworm prevention, and flea/tick control. In addition, we can help with dietary recommendations and changes, house breaking, and more. With these services, our goal is to detect and prevent illness as efficiently as possible to ensure the best quality of life for your pet.
How Cat & Dog Exams can Help Prevent Illness
Your pet’s first wellness visit with us is also the point at which we can establish a baseline of health. From here on out, we can use that first exam as a measuring stick for all future exams and be in a better position to detect subtle health changes. Because your pet cannot tell you (or us) when something is wrong, it’s up to us to know what to look for. If we see anything unusual during your pet’s exam, we’ll let you know right away and suggest all available options for treatment.
Does Every Pet Need Parasite Protection
Yes. Both dogs and cats, regardless of lifestyle, can be at risk for parasite infestations and flea and tick-borne diseases. No home is entirely parasite-proof, so make sure your pet is protected! We can help you choose the right parasite preventatives for their needs.
Vaccines are an essential part of your pet’s wellness care plan. They offer invaluable protection against disease and can prevent the spread of disease among animals and, in some cases, humans too. Both cats and dogs benefit from being vaccinated, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you want to ensure that your companion is as safe as can be. Rabies, parvo, distemper, and other diseases can be life-threatening, and even treatable illnesses can take their toll on your pet’s health.
