Tailored Recommendations for Your Pet’s Wellness
You don’t think your pet is the same as everyone else’s pet, right? Neither do we. We believe every pet needs something a little different to stay healthy!
When you bring your pet to Frontier Village Veterinary Clinic, you can expect a thorough exam and individualized wellness care recommendations. Our group of doctors considers all recommendations at length, basing them on your pet’s current state of health, age, and lifestyle. In addition, our doctors stay up to date and trained on the most current recommendations from leading veterinary groups of research, education, and public health associations.
Our number one recommendation for all pets is that the best medical care for an animal is the care that comes earlier rather than later. In general, pets that have preventive wellness care tend to live two to three years longer than pets that don’t experience proactive and regular health care. Bringing your pet in for consistent exams and blood work can lead to the detection of serious problems more quickly. Not only will this ensure the health and comfort of your pet, but also it will keep the costs of your pet’s health care low. The earlier the intervention, the less the expense is for you!
In addition to our usual services, we provide wellness strategies that may include some or all of the following procedures:
- Physical examination
- The wellness of your pet begins with the exam. A physical evaluation gives us a baseline of your pet’s health and allows us to assess visible symptoms of distress or injury.
- Parasite control
- Our doctors will educate you on how to control internal parasites (worms) and external parasites (fleas and ticks) that threaten the health of pets and people. We will make optimal recommendations for the diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and control of parasitic infections.
- Dental care
- Caring for your pet’s teeth and mouth will always be a huge component of our wellness care recommendations. You can save your family a lot of heartache and resources simply by taking proactive steps to stop tooth and mouth issues before they become serious.
- Blood work, urinalysis, and fecal parasite screens are vital tools that help your doctor assess what is happening “on the inside” of your pet. Pets are masters at tolerating discomfort. Diagnostics give us a picture of what the eye may not see.
- Nutritional counseling
- Our staff will guide you through the nutritional needs of your pet because we know that an animal’s diet can enhance or extend his or her life. We will counsel you based on your pet’s age and activity level in regards to types of diets, portions, and supplements. Good nutrition or special supplements can positively affect your pet’s energy level, ease of movement, health of his or her coat, and ability to fight disease. Specialty diets and supplements are available at our clinic, but we will gladly order unique prescription diets for you at no additional cost.
- Behavioral counseling
- We love our pets but they sometimes develop habits or behaviors that are worrisome or frustrating. Many of them can be well managed with a change in routine or in the way we interact with our pets. We can provide helpful recommendations and counsel you on ways to teach them to be good companions in your home. Let us direct you to resources that will help pet ownership be the enjoyable experience its meant to be. If you have a puppy or kitten, come in as soon as you start having problems. Even if you have a senior pet, it’s never too late to teach an old dog (or cat!) new tricks.
- We offer microchipping services to dogs and cats of all ages. It is a fantastic way to help ensure that you and your pet are reunited if you are separated. If your pet is chipped and registered, pet shelters and vet clinics will be able to scan the chip and contact you. Microchipping is permanent and far more reliable than collars and tags.
