Pet Preventative Care services at Alamogordo Animal Hospital
Our pet preventive health care measures can maximize the fullness of life. These visits include:
- Annual physical exams: Many of our younger patients have annual exams, but for aging pets or those who have medical conditions, we recommend exams every six months.
- Vaccinations: While dogs and cats have some of the same vaccinations like rabies and distemper, they also have different vaccination needs based on the diseases that can affect their species. Our veterinarians will work with you to set up a comprehensive vaccination schedule to protect your pet.
- Dental exams: Just like humans, pets need to have regular dental care both at home and at the veterinary office. According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs show symptoms of oral disease.
- Parasite prevention: Ridding a pet and home from fleas can cost hundreds to thousands of dollars and can be nearly impossible to get rid of as flea eggs can survive for a very long time. We will work with you to set up the best flea and tick preventive plan for your pets.
