Prevention Is the Key to Health
All of the doctors and staff at the 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 Physical Examinations
The cornerstone of a healthy preventative care program is a thorough examination every six months. Because pets age much more quickly that people, this is like a person receiving and exam every 2-3 years.
Vaccinations have been shown to be critical in preventing many infectious diseases. Carolina Ranch doctors will tailor your pet’s vaccinations to their lifestyles. We also only administer the vaccines that are required at a frequency that has 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.
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, Frontline Plus and Advantage Multi for cats.
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 and tapeworms. This is particularly important since intestinal parasites are endemic to this area and most can be transmitted between pets and people.
