Wellness & Preventative Care
Pet Wellness is the Key to a Long, Healthy Life
All of the doctors and staff at the Ranch strongly believe in preventative care. Our veterinarians know that it is much easier to prevent issues than to treat an illness after it has developed. We have a comprehensive list of wellness services to keep your pets healthy and happy!
The cornerstone of a healthy preventative care program is a thorough examination every six months. Because pets age much more quickly than people do, this is like a person receiving an exam every 2-3 years.
Vaccinations have been shown to be critical in preventing many infectious diseases. Carolina Ranch doctors will tailor your pet’s vaccinations to their lifestyle. We only administer the vaccines that are required at a frequency that is shown to be effective to prevent diseases endemic to this region. If you travel with your pets, we will discuss vaccinations that may be appropriate for travel.
Parasites are one of the most common issues that we face with pets. Our facility offers a variety of monthly preventative products for heartworms, fleas, and ticks including Heartgard Plus, Nexgard, Frontline Plus, Bravecto, and Advantage Multi for cats. We even offer Home Delivery Services that drop your pets meds off at your door!
Provide your pet with regular screenings for heartworm infection, exposure to tick-borne diseases, and intestinal parasites.
Our pharmacy stocks a number of products that can clear your pet of intestinal parasites such as roundworms, hookworms, whipworms and tapeworms. This is particularly important since intestinal parasites are endemic to this area and most can be transmitted between pets and people.
