Preventative Veterinary Medicine in Manassas
Preserving Your Pet’s Health with Preventative Care
At Independent Hill Veterinary Clinic, preventing disease before it happens is a core tenet of our approach to your pet’s health. Regular visits to see our Manassas veterinarians is key to preventing illness and preserving your pet’s quality of life. We take preventative medicine seriously. Every exam at Independent Hill Veterinary Clinic is conducted with an eye toward identifying signs of disease and early intervention. It’s much easier to prevent disease from taking root in the first place than it is to try to cure a disease later on. Our team will help you understand the measures we recommend to keep your pet healthy throughout their lives.
Preventative Care & Your Pet
The ultimate goal of preventative care is to prevent your pet from contracting or developing a disease in the first place. At Independence Hill Veterinary Clinic, we believe that it’s easier to prevent disease than to cure it down the road. We work with you to create a preventative care plan for your pet that will evolve with them as they age.
Preventative care at Independent Hill can include:
Preventative care is folded into your pet’s regular wellness exams at Independent Hill Veterinary Clinic. Our Manassas veterinarians will ask your questions to get to know your pet and their health needs. Certain factors such as your pet’s age, breed, lifestyle, and preexisting conditions are all issues that will affect what we recommend for your pet’s ongoing care. Every pet is different! We take our time to tailor our recommendations to your pet’s specific needs. For example, elderly pets will need different things than a new puppy. We’ll be more focused on pain management and quality of life control for senior pets, while we’ll focus on nutrition and behavioral development with new puppies.
It’s important to us that you, as your pet’s parent, feel comfortable with your pet’s preventative care plan. Our Manassas veterinarians will walk you through every recommendation so that you understand your pet’s treatment and how you can help them at home. If you have questions, we’re more than happy to take the time to make sure you understand all of the elements of your pet’s ongoing care.
Finally, remember that regular visits to Independent Hill Veterinary Clinic will help us keep the best track of your pet’s health. We want to have the ability to identify changes before those changes become a major issue. We use your pet’s diagnostic and laboratory tests to make sure their preventative care plan continues to address your pet’s health needs.
