The old adage is certainly true: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. At Armstrong Animal Clinic, we stress the importance of preventative medicine for your pets. Whether it is vaccinations against disease, parasite prevention, yearly monitoring of organ function, or nutritional counseling, we strive to keep your pets in perfect health to ensure they remain a loving member of your family for as long as possible. Pets age significantly faster than people, which is why we recommend physical exams twice a year. Once a year exams would be like us going to the doctor once every 7 years! These visits give your vet a chance to closely monitor your pet’s health and identify any problems before they become serious.
