At Radford Animal Hospital, we see how much Radford, VA pet owners care for their animal companions. Pets are an important and valued part of the family, and we know you want to provide them with the best health care to keep them safe and happy. If they have a sudden mishap or become sick, it is important to seek prompt medical attention. If your veterinarian already knows your pet, it provides an important baseline from which to easily detect anomalies. Beginning routine visits to the veterinarian and keeping up with them is an important aspect of caring for your pet. Our veterinarian has been providing residents of Radford, VA with comprehensive vet care for many years.
Care for Pets of All Ages
Whether you’ve adopted a puppy or kitten or your pet is joining your family in a later stage of life, you’ll want to start your pet’s time with your family the correct way. Spaying and neutering prevent unexpected litters from being born and keeps pets from roaming. Animals come in contact with life-threatening diseases by way of wild animals or germs, and a quick and easy round of vaccinations provides lasting protection against devastating illnesses. Medications to clear pets of fleas and worms give a great foundation for a healthy life.
Elderly pets will need frequent wellness checks to ensure they are not suffering from any undiagnosed diseases. Older pets are more likely to experience periodontal disease, arthritis, gastrointestinal issues, and other illnesses. They can still enjoy more wonderful years under a veterinarian’s care following recommendations for diet and medication.
Illness and Injury
When pets are suddenly affected by acute trauma or sickness, you will notice both physical and behavioral changes. You should keep in mind that pets hide pain quite well, so by the time your pet acts subdued or panicked they have probably already been suffering for some time. Act quickly and seek timely veterinary care.
Preventative and Wellness Care
Signs of developing conditions usually go unnoticed in their early stages unless your pet is professionally examined. Scheduling routine wellness exams allow our veterinarian to diagnose and address health problems before they are allowed to progress. Once our vet has established a relationship with your pet, we will easily be able to spot deviations from your pet’s normal appearance and behavior.
