Wellness & Preventative Care

Wellness is the Key to a Long, Healthy Life

All of the doctors and staff at Carolina Ranch strongly believe in preventative care. Our veterinarians know that it is much easier to prevent issues than to treat an illness after it has developed. We have a comprehensive list of wellness services to keep your pets healthy and happy!

Comprehensive Examinations

The cornerstone of a healthy preventative care program is a thorough examination every six months. Because pets age much more quickly than people do, this is like a person receiving an exam every 2-3 years.


What is preventative care for pets?

Preventative care is a necessary step in making sure your pet is healthy and at their ideal weight. It can also help your vet spot potential health problems before they put your pet’s health in danger. Along with an exam, preventative care also makes sure your pet is free of parasites and is up-to-date on all of their vaccines, and can even include things like dental cleaning and spaying or neutering. You should aim to have your pet examined twice a year to make sure they stay in optimal health.


The veterinarians at Carolina Ranch know how important it is to keep your pets healthy and happy. Call us to set up preventative care with us today!

What preventative care do dogs need?

In order for dogs to remain in good health, they need to be examined once every six months. Preventative care for dogs typically includes:


  • Regular Wellness Checks
  • Spaying/Neutering
  • Vaccines
  • Dental Care
  • Parasite Prevention


To help keep your dog in optimal health, contact Carolina Ranch today and schedule a service with us!

Does pet insurance cover preventative pet care?

Most pet insurance policies can help to cover the costs of things like surgery, medication and sudden illness, but it will depend on the type of pet insurance policy you buy. If you want preventative pet care to be covered, you will need to buy wellness insurance.

Carolina Ranch is here to answer any questions you have. For more information on preventative pet care or to schedule a service with us, contact us today!


Vaccinations have been shown to be critical in preventing many infectious diseases. Carolina Ranch doctors will tailor your pet’s vaccinations to their lifestyle. We only administer the vaccines that are required at a frequency that is shown to be effective to prevent diseases endemic to this region. If you travel with your pets, we will discuss vaccinations that may be appropriate for travel.

Parasite Prevention

Parasites are one of the most common issues that we face with pets. Our facility offers a variety of monthly preventative products for heartworms, fleas, and ticks including Heartgard Plus, Nexgard, Bravecto, and Advantage Multi for cats. We even offer Home Delivery Services that drop your pets meds off at your door!

Provide your pet with regular screenings for heartworm infection, exposure to tick-borne diseases, and intestinal parasites.

Our pharmacy stocks a number of products that can clear your pet of intestinal parasites such as roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, and tapeworms. This is particularly important since intestinal parasites are endemic to this area and most can be transmitted between pets and people.
