Wellness care is the key to keeping your pet healthy and the backbone of effective veterinary medicine. Some of the most common ailments in pets are easy to prevent but difficult to treat. At AMC of Garner our ultimate goal is a lifetime of health for your pet and that begins with excellent and consistent preventative care.
This starts with a yearly examination for adult animals and twice yearly exams for senior animals. Our veterinarians will conduct a full physical exam to check for subtle signs of disease which will often go unnoticed at home. At that time your vet can also make recommendations on how to keep your pet healthy based on their breed, age and lifestyle.
Routine vaccination is also an important part of preventative care. Some vaccines are considered “core”, meaning they are recommended for all animals and should always be kept up-to-date. Other vaccines may be needed to fully protect your pet based on their age and lifestyle. Your veterinarian will create a vaccine protocol specifically for your pet based on their specific risks.
Preventative care also comes home in the form of heartworm and flea/tick preventative. Monthly use of preventatives is encouraged year around to prevent serious disease spread by mosquitos, fleas and ticks. AMC of Garner offers several different products and your vet will work with you to determine which is the best fit for your pet.
