The Importance of Preventative Care for Pets in Maize, KS

Cat and Dog Preventive Care Wichita, KS

The Bogue Animal Hospital veterinary team emphasizes the importance of pet preventative care for all of our patients. Keeping your pet protected from pests and diseases is essential if your pet is to live a long, healthy life. We can help you determine an appropriate pet preventative care regimen based on your pet’s lifestyle, health status, and particular needs. We recommend that all pets be protected year round from pests such as fleas, ticks, and heartworm. We also administer pet vaccinations based on these criteria to protect them from disease.

Preventative Pet Health Care in Maize, KS

Our pets age significantly faster than we do, so regular pet physical exams are even more important for them than they are for us. An annual check-up for a pet is equivalent to a checkup every three or four years for a human.  When we examine your pet regularly, we are able to identify potential health conditions early so that they can be treated in a timely manner. Regular pet examinations can also allow us the opportunity to establish your pet’s baseline health, which will make it easier for us to catch any deviations from the norm in future checkups. During your pet’s preventive checkup, we will examine them from nose to tail and everything in between including:

  • Blood pressure
  • Blood test (generally in older pets)
  • Ears
  • Eyes
  • Fecal test
  • Heartrate
  • Neurological system
  • Nose
  • Oral cavity
  • Organ function
  • Skeletal system and joints
  • Urinalysis (generally in older pets)
  • …and so much more

If you have questions about your pet’s health care needs, we invite you to visit our pet wellness page or contact our team for assistance.
