Deer Creek Veterinary Hospital provides a full range of preventive care services to help your dog and cat live a longer, happier life and to increase the odds of detecting problems early, before they become severe and costly.

Our veterinarians make their annual preventive care recommendations based on the guidelines established by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). We then customize our recommendations based on your dog's hereditary factors, age, medical history and lifestyle.

Annual preventive care for dogs typically includes:

  • An annual Physical Wellness Examination where our veterinarians will take a complete medical history, make nutrition recommendations, assess behavior, and review any known medical conditions.

  • Vaccines keep you and your pet healthy!  Vaccines are administered based on your pets lifestyle and breed, as per AVMA and AAHA guidelines . Core vaccines include Rabies, Canine/Feline Distemper and Leptospirosis. Our veterinarians may also recommend additional vaccines such as  Bordetella (Kennel Cough) or Feline Leukemia Virus.  See our recommended Cat vaccine/wellness schedule and Dog vaccine/wellness schedule.

  • Parasite Control Products to control parasites such as heartworms, intestinal parasites, fleas and ticks. Controlling these parasites helps protect your dog and your family members from easily transmitted diseases.
     

  • Diagnostic Testing to confirm the absence of heartworms or other internal parasites and early disease screening tests to help identify any internal issues which cannot be detected during a thorough physical exam.
     

  • Our veterinarians will also discuss other services, such as dental care or microchipping that will benefit your dog's overall health and well being. 

  • Our veterinarians will also listen to your concerns about your pet, and help answer any questions you may have about your pets health, behavior and life style
