Preventative Care

If you have a pet, you want to give them the best life possible. A big part of this is keeping them healthy by performing preventative care. Preventative care promotes good health in your pet’s routine. At All Creatures Hospital in Del Mar, CA, we’re here to provide pet services to all Carmel Valley pets and their owners. Here are some steps you can take to keep your pet healthy. 

Preventative Care

Stay Up to Date with Vaccines 

Just like people, pets need vaccines to avoid catching certain illnesses. So make sure that your pet’s vaccination status remains up to date. Talk to your veterinarian about which vaccines your pet needs and when they should get them. This will help prevent you and your pet from dealing with an illness that could have been avoided. 

Get Regular Checkups 

The best way to stay on top of your pet’s vaccines is by getting regular checkups at the veterinarian’s office. These wellness visits are important for many other reasons too. You can use this time to ask any questions you might have and get a professional answer. Your pet will also receive a full examination, where the veterinarian can check for any problems that might exist. Regular examinations allow them to find problems early on when they’re easier to treat. So make sure that you’re not just going to the vet when there is a problem. Instead, make wellness exams part of your yearly routine. 

Get Good Nutrition 

Your pet needs healthy food to have a healthy body. So make sure that you’re paying attention to their nutritional needs. Certain brands of pet food might be better for your pet than others, so check labels and ask your veterinarian for recommendations. With healthy food and treats in moderation, your pet can stay healthy and avoid the problems that poor nutrition might bring. 

Exercise Regularly 

Just like humans, animals need to exercise. So make sure that your pet has the opportunity to run around. You can also provide toys to enrich their environment and give them more options for active play. Regular exercise will keep your pet’s heart-healthy, which will benefit all of their body’s systems. It will also promote a healthy weight.
