Preventative Care in Lake Oswego
Preventing Disease, Preserving Longevity
In an ideal world, our pets would never get sick or injured. While we may not be able to prevent every disease or injury, we can mitigate the impact with comprehensive preventative care. The idea behind preventative care is simple: regular healthcare to prevent disease before it happens. In most cases, it’s much easier to prevent disease than it is to treat it. For your pets, regular checkups with the veterinary professionals at Lake Grove Veterinary Clinic can make a huge impact on your pet’s overall health and quality of life.
If it’s been a long time since you last took your pet to the vet, give us a call at (503) 461-4041 to schedule an appointment today!
Meeting Your Pet’s Needs with Customized Care
We recognize that every pet is a unique individual, even if they share the same breed or age. This is why we take the time to get to know your pet before putting together a preventative care plan that addresses all of their health needs. During your pet’s initial exam, our Lake Oswego veterinary team will examine your pet from head to tail, leaving no paw unturned. We’ll also ask you questions about your pet’s lifestyle and behavior, as well as if they have any pre-existing health conditions we should know about. A full medical history from you goes a long way to helping us get a full picture of your pet’s health.
Factors that affect our preventative care recommendations:
- Activity level
- Pre-existing conditions
The above factors will affect what treatments our veterinary team will include in their recommendations in your pet’s preventative care plan. Puppies and kittens need much different care than senior pets, or an overweight pet may need further nutritional counseling. Combining our head to tail exam with your pet’s medical history, risk factors, and laboratory work, we’ll be able to construct a full picture of your pet’s health and what they need to maintain a healthy quality of life.
We’ll also take the time to educate you, the pet parent, on the best practices for the care and keeping of your pet. We know you love them and want the best for them – and we do too! Providing educational resources to you means that your pet has another person on their side protecting their health. If you have any questions about our recommendations or about your pet’s health more generally, we’ll be happy to give you answers. We want you to feel confident that your pet is getting exactly the treatment they need, and that you’re able to be an active participant in improving their quality of life.
