Preventative Veterinary Care & Vaccinations in Garland
Protecting Your Pet’s Health & Longevity
Our goal at Animal Hospital of Garland is to make sure your pet lives a long, healthy life by your side. To do so, we advocate for regular preventative care for your pet to ensure they get the most out of their life. Preventing disease and illness from ever happening is much easier than treating or curing a disease when it sets in.
We make keeping track of your pet’s ongoing healthcare easy with our Care Plans. These packages include physical exams, vaccinations, parasite testing, and lab work to help set your pet up for a future of good health and longevity.
Individualized Care for Your Pets
Your pet is a unique individual with needs that are specific to them and no two pets are the same. Our preventative veterinary care in Garland is designed to get to know your pet. We will then customize their Care Plan to suit their needs. We take a close look at your pet’s medical history and ask you questions so we can ensure their health and wellness is protected by our recommendations.
Factors that we take into account when designing your pet’s preventative care plan include:
- Preexisting conditions
- Activity level
Different pets have different needs! Senior pets will need more care and attention to certain areas than a new puppy or kitten. We’ll help you understand what your pet needs in order to live their best life.
Vaccines play a key role in keeping your pet healthy and disease-free. When you bring your pet in to Animal Hospital of Garland for preventative care, our veterinary team will make recommendations for vaccinations that suit your pet’s breed, lifestyle, and risk factors. At the very least, we’ll recommend core vaccinations, which are considered universally necessary for all pets due to the severity or communicability of the disease.
Core vaccinations for dogs include:
- Canine parvovirus
- Canine hepatitis
Core vaccinations for cats include:
- Feline calicivirus
- Feline herpes virus type I
In addition to the vaccinations listed above, your Garland veterinarian may recommend other, non-core vaccinations to protect your pet’s health. As part of our focus on keeping your pet healthy and preventing disease, every recommendation we make is geared toward your pet’s specific circumstances.
