Preventative Care Is Important

Even if pets are healthy, we want to make sure that we see them at least once per year. This allows us to do routine lab work and complete a physical exam, ensuring that healthy pets stay that way. We will take the time to listen to the concerns of pet owners and ensure that any problems are addressed. One of the most important reasons why we want to see pets once per year is to ensure that they are up to date on their shots.

The Importance of Vaccinating Pets

It is important for pet owners to take every step possible to make sure that not only their pets. Vaccines play an essential role in keeping pets healthy. In addition, pet vaccines can also prevent the spread of diseases from pets to people, such as rabies.

During the past century, vaccines have helped prevent the deaths of many animals. This can also save pet owners from some costly bills that would otherwise accompany diseases that are preventable. The job of vaccines is to prevent pets from some of the most dangerous diseases that impact animals. Some of the most common examples include distemper and rabies.

Testimonial

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "I'm so pleased with the experience I had at lakeville animal hospital. I am traveling with my dog from northern Maine to visit family and my dog had been sick for 3 days. She couldn't keep any food or water down. Long story short I called lakeville animal hospital and they were able to squeeze Aspen in later on in the day. Turns out the reason Aspen had been sick was that she had atleast one blockage in her intestines. They immediately sent us to a 24 hour emergency vet in Swansea for a surgery. Aspen is now out of surgery with 2 incisions in her intestines and 1 in her stomach. Being a long way from home with a sick puppy is not fun and is quite stressful. But I'm thankful the crew at lakeville animal hospital was able to see her so soon, take X-rays, give her a diagnosis, and make a recommendation for a 24 hour surgery facility."
