When it comes to your pets, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, as the saying goes. It is much easier and usually less expensive to prevent a condition from happening in the first place rather than treating the condition once it has developed.
At Hillview Veterinary Clinic/Bed & Biscuit in Reynoldsburg, OH, our veterinarian is happy to discuss preventative treatment with you. Preventive treatment keeps your pet healthy and disease-free. Spaying, neutering, vaccination, flea and tick medication, and heartworm medication are all considered preventative treatments.
Spaying and Neutering
Spaying and neutering prevent unwanted pet pregnancies. Spaying and neutering are also good for your pet as it curbs aggressive behavior and prevent cancer of the reproductive organs.
Rabies is a life-threatening illness. Thankfully, rabies can be prevented through vaccination. Talk to our vet about the other vaccines available. Some are considered core vaccines and others will be recommended depending on your pet's lifestyle.
Flea and Tick Prevention
Fleas and ticks carry a variety of serious diseases, meaning protecting your pet from the diseases carried by fleas and ticks is essential. Discuss the various options with our veterinarian and choose the one that works best for you.
Heartworm is a serious and life-threatening condition. While there is treatment available for heartworm disease, it is best to prevent your pet from being infested in the first place. Heartworm prevention medication is available in several forms, and our veterinarian will help you select the one that works best for your pet.
