Vaccinations at Carlsbad Animal Hospital
Another important part of wellness care is vaccinations. Vaccines are medications that protect our pets from a variety of serious, sometimes life-threatening illnesses and diseases. Yet, just because a vaccine is available, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s right for your pet. We’ll conduct a thorough analysis of your pet’s lifestyle and risk factors so we can develop a customized vaccination plan that is tailor-made to keep your pet safe without overmedicating.
Perhaps the most important benefit of routine wellness care is the opportunity these annual or semi-annual visits provide our experienced veterinarians to identify potential health concerns and address them before they have a chance to develop into more serious and costly problems. When we are able to detect disease in its earliest stages, we are much better able to treat it effectively, improving the chances of a positive outcome. What’s more, you’ll save money over time, since it’s always less expensive to manage the early signs of disease than it is to treat it once it’s progressed.
Finally, wellness visits allow us to get to know you and your pet better and to develop that all-important bond that all veterinarians should share with their patients. The better we know you and the more we understand your pet’s needs, the more personalized and effective a health care plan we can develop and implement, bettering the chances of helping your pet enjoy many years of health and happiness.
