Pet Wellness & Preventive Care
The key to pets living a long and healthy life is regular wellness exams and health screenings. Wellness and preventive care for dogs and cats can be mind-boggling; Springs Veterinary Care simplifies your pet’s wellness and preventive care by putting together a plan for your pet based on his or her age, lifestyle, weight, and health considerations.
Springs Veterinary Care, in the heart of Dripping Springs, determines the best course of action to help your pet achieve a higher state of wellness. Our veterinarian performs regularly scheduled physical exams with laboratory tests to detect any changes in your pet’s health since his or her last exam. Springs Veterinary Care also puts your pet on a course of prevention for parasites and disease.
Our standard of care at Springs Vet includes:
Vaccinations are crucial to ensuring your pet–and you–are protected. We routinely recommend vaccination against rabies, distemper, parvovirus, and upper respiratory vaccines. We make vaccination decisions based on the latest science and your pet’s risk profile to best ensure we are vaccinating enough, but not too much. Springs Veterinary Care also offers vaccines specific to threats in the Dripping Springs area like leptospirosis and rattlesnake vaccines.
Dentistry for pet’s is often overlooked. Damaged teeth and gum disease lead to pain and bacterial infections. All dental procedures performed at Springs Veterinary Care are performed under anesthesia for your pet’s comfort and best care. Springs Veterinary Care is the only veterinary practice in Dripping Springs to offer digital dental radiography for animals.
Regular exams help our veterinarians determine and monitor changes in your pet’s health. Pets age far too quickly, at a much faster rate than we do. Consequently, important changes can occur in a small period of time. Regular checkups give us the opportunity to identify and manage problems early on.
Regular blood tests, urinalyses, or fecal examinations are important tools to evaluate whether your pet has contracted diseases or parasites. Health screenings, performed regularly, give our veterinarian a baseline of your pet’s normal functions and the ability to track changes over time.
