We want to be a member of your pet’s care team. Communication is crucial in any relationship, and we hope you find value in your pet’s annual tests and check-ups. It is critical for your pet’s health that you bring him or her to Creekside Veterinary Hospital for annual exams. We provide complete physical examinations so that any possible concerns can be identified before they become severe issues. Many pet health issues can be avoided with regular physical examinations, which is why we recommend that your pet get at least two exams with our team every year. While physical examinations are important for animal health, you can help by being a responsible pet owner. Take careful notes if you observe anything unusual about your pet and bring them to Creekside Veterinary Hospital for an appointment!
Many diseases that might afflict dogs and cats can be avoided with regular pet vaccines. We’ll make sure your pet is up-to-date on vaccines and put them on a regimen to ensure they stay up-to-date from the first visit to Creekside Veterinary Hospital.
Our Cleveland veterinarian will explain the best course of action for your pet’s immunization regimen based on his or her age, medical history, lifestyle, and environment. You can bring your cat or dog in for their first round of vaccinations as early as eight weeks old.
After your pet has the initial vaccines, you’ll need to bring them in every few weeks for boosters for roughly three months. After your pet has completed the initial vaccine series, they will need booster shots every 1 to 3 years, depending on the vaccine and your pet’s lifestyle.
It’s easy to keep your pet protected from parasites such as fleas, ticks, and heartworm, and we’re here to assist you. Why is parasite prevention important? Please contact us to ensure that your pet is safe from these parasites.
Fleas are tiny, leaping insects that feed on animals’ blood. They can spread hazardous infections to pets and frequently induce allergic dermatitis, which causes extreme itching.
Ticks are external parasites that feed on animals’ body fluids. They may transport infections from one animal to the next and are the primary cause of Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis/anaplasmosis, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever.
Heartworm is a parasite that can dwell in dogs’ and cats’ hearts. Mosquitoes spread the worm from an infected animal to other animals. Several hundred worms can dwell in a dog’s heart, and parasite infection can cause considerable damage and even death.
Let’s get your pet on preventative treatment for these parasites right now if they aren’t already.
