A veterinary clinic is more than a place to take a sick pet

Unfortunately many people only visit their veterinary clinic when their pet is not feeling well, and they are missing out on the real benefits of what a veterinary clinic has to offer. Partnering with a trusted vet clinic can help to reduce those sick pet visits.

A lot of veterinary services are focused on providing preventive care which can help to keep your pet healthy, and happy. One of the first things you should do when you get your new pet is to partner with a veterinary clinic.

Don’t Miss Out on Important Information

A vet is a wealth of information, information that you do not want to miss out on. Well-pet check-ups ensure that you have all the information that you need to help your pet live a long healthy life.

When you take your pet for well-pet checkups your vet will talk to you about:

  • Preventive care like vaccines

  • Nutrition

  • Any potential problems and early intervention options

At the vet clinic, you can get preventive care for your healthy pet to ensure that they stay healthy. Vaccines, flea and tick preventives, and more can help your pet to avoid some of the health risks.

Your vet will discuss oral health care with you. About 65% of pet parents do not take care of their pet’s oral health needs. Dogs and cats can get painful cavities and experience other oral health issues. Your vet can show you how to care for your pet’s teeth.

Nutrition Talk

A good veterinary clinic will give you the information you need to ensure that your pet is getting the nutrition that they need. Good nutrition is very important for your pet’s overall health. Many pet owners do not feed their pets the best diet for the needs of the pet.

It can be hard to make diet and nutrition choices for your pet without some professional guidance. An SPCA vet will evaluate your pet and make nutrition suggestions. Make a vet appointment is an easy way to have all your questions about nutrition answered.

Training Tips and More

A vet clinic can also provide you with training tips. Learn how to stop unwanted behavior and to encourage positive behaviors in your pet. Your local SPCA vet clinic will help you to take the best care of your pet.
