We encourage clients to invest in their pets’ long-term health by maintaining regular wellness examinations. Often our veterinarians can detect evidence of early disease via a simple physical exam, which then allows them to make recommendations for early diagnosis and intervention.
Vaccinations are an important component to disease prevention. Ruxton Animal Hospital believes that vaccine programs should be determined by the exposure risk of an individual pet, and will work with you to ensure that your pet is protected based upon his/her lifestyle!
Don’t forget that heartworm disease, flea/tick infestations, and internal parasites are all relatively simple to avoid by administration of routine preventives. Because some areas carry a higher burden of certain parasites and no preventive offers 100% protection, we screen for a number of the most common parasites/diseases on an annual or biannual basis.
