Wellness and Preventative
Care for Your Pet
At Belton Small Animal Clinic, we care deeply about your pet's longevity and well-being. We love every one of our patients as much as we love our own pets and want only the best care for their needs. Pet wellness care is a major area of veterinary medicine that includes various services, including physical exams, vaccinations, parasite prevention and diagnostics. Keeping up with these services and treatments year after year is essential for your pet's health and happiness.
We take pride in helping pets grow and thrive from their earliest life stage to their senior years. Let's work together to create a personalized wellness plan for your pet that stands the test of time and keeps them healthy and active for years to come.
Maintaining Your Adult Pet's Health
Annual wellness visits allow our team to fully evaluate your pet's current health and record any changes we observe. We can also address any problems you may have noticed in your pet and act quickly to correct them.
Routine exams include a full physical, recommended vaccinations, and heartworm and fecal testing. These are opportune times for us to touch base with you and your pet, and make changes to their wellness program if necessary. Parasite prevention is also very important for cats and dogs, and we can recommend the best parasite control products to suit their needs. Fleas, ticks and mosquitoes are a year-round problem for all pets!
Caring for Seniors
Senior cats and dogs experience the effects of aging much like we do. They can develop diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and other issues. Older pets with chronic health conditions will likely need to see their veterinarian more than once a year for a checkup. Yearly blood screenings are also valuable for detecting underlying illnesses and injuries. It is never easy to see your four-legged friend grow old, but we can help you keep them comfortable, healthy and mobile in their golden years.
