A ginger cat getting a treat from a vet techIt’s a fact of life – pets develop health problems. They get sick or injured, or develop a disease. Some of these things may be preventable. If you knew that your pet’s problem could have been prevented, wouldn’t you do everything in your power to go back in time and do so?

Our preventative care plans are designed to help catch problems early so that we can treat them more effectively and, in some instances, prevent them entirely.

Pet Preventative Care Plans at Elmhurst Animal Care Center

We strongly believe that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. That is why we have designed Preventative Care Plans for our client’s pets with plans designed to make proactive pet care easy and affordable.

  • Unlimited office visits at no additional charge, so that you pet gets the attention he or she deserves
  • Quality care performed by a licensed veterinarian
  • Any recommended vaccines
  • Advised screening tests to catch and prevent disease
  • Discounted boarding, grooming, and emergency care

The Importance of Pet Wellness Care

Veterinary care has been traditionally focused on treating illness once it is diagnosed. However more and more pet owners are demanding that the focus move towards preventing diseases before they happen. That delights us as pet caregivers because we recognize how vital it is to begin treating problems earlier rather than later.

Good pet wellness care consists of:

Routine Pet Wellness Examinations – Frequent and thorough examinations done by a veterinarian are vital. Besides making us more familiar with your pet and allowing us to more easily note subtle changes, these visits are a great opportunity to discuss any questions or concerns you might have.

Routine Pet Vaccination – Routine vaccination is key for preventing many serious and even deadly pet diseases. We will personalize a vaccine protocol based on your pet’s lifestyle and risk factors to determine what vaccinations are necessary to provide good preventative care.

Pet Wellness Testing – Although it may seem unnecessary on the surface, periodically checking basic lab work on your healthy pet is important. These type of tests allow us to identify problems early so that they can be treated appropriately. They help to establish baseline normal for your pet so that we can more effectively detect changes earlier down the road.

No one wants their pet to be sick, and while our pet Preventative Care Plans can’t prevent every problem, they are an effective way to head off many of them. We offer several options to provide an effective, affordable plan for every pet and every owner.

Please let us know if you would like more information or if you would like to enroll your pet in one of our Preventative Care Plans. Every pet deserves a long, happy life and by providing good preventative care you are doing your best to provide just that.
