Preventative Veterinary Care in Mechanicsburg
Keeping Your Pet Healthy & Happy in Central Pennsylvania
Preventative care is one of the most important aspects of your pet’s health. Just like humans, pets benefit greatly from regular wellness exams and checkups. Keeping your pet healthy overall will greatly increase the length of their life, as it allows your veterinarian to catch diseases early enough to treat them and prevent future illnesses or decrease the severity of them.

Preventative Services We Offer
There are many things you can do for your pet’s preventative care—and it’s important that you do them all. We know that veterinary bills can be expensive, but preventative pet care can actually help you save money on your pet’s health in the long-run. With proper preventative care, there is a much lower likelihood that your pet will need emergency or critical care for an unexpected illness or condition. Maintaining proper care of your pet and bringing them in for the recommended visits will mean lower vet costs in general because we can detect and treat many diseases and illnesses before drastic measures must be taken.
You can help in preventing unnecessary future veterinary visits by:
- Enrolling your pet in our Wellness Program and scheduling the recommended visits
- Keeping up-to-date with your pet’s immunizations
- Administering the suggested (and prescribed) medications to your pet
- Investing in preventative flea and tick products for your pet
- Scheduling heartworm testing for your pet monthly
- Feeding your pet a healthy and nutritious diet
- Brushing your pet’s teeth and fur daily
- Taking your pet on frequent walks and giving them enough exercise
- Regularly getting your pet groomed (how often depends on the individual animal)
Making the time to provide proper preventative care for your pet has innumerable benefits, but the biggest one, we believe, is the difference it makes in your pet’s overall health and happiness.
