Preventative care is essential to ensuring your pet lives a long, healthy, and happy life. No one knows your pet better than you and having a collaborative preventative approach with your veterinarian can aid in the early detection of an underlying disease or illness.
At Columbine Animal Hospital we provide the following preventative care services:
Our veterinarians perform a thorough nose-to-tail examination for pets of all ages. This exam includes an evaluation of:
- Eyes, ears, mouth, nose
- Abdomen, skin, coat, nails
- Limbs, joints, paws
Vaccinations are the safest and most effective way to prevent contractable diseases. Our veterinarians will develop a customized vaccine schedule that best suits your pets’ lifestyle and overall health.
Heartworm, Flea, Tick and Parasite Prevention
Parasites in Colorado?? Contrary to what some believe there is still a population of parasites that reside in Colorado. Although the population is not large, our veterinarians recommend year-round heartworm preventative and seasonal flea and tick preventative.
Diagnostics (i.e. lab work)
Routine lab work helps us identify possible underlying conditions that may require further treatment. It also aids in providing us with a good healthy baseline for your pet.
