Block House Creek Animal Hospital has a uniquely formulated system of care for all your animals, including puppy, kitten and senior veterinary services in Cedar Park, Texas. Please see the following list for some of the incredible wellness and preventative care services offered at our hospital.
Puppy & Kitten Preventive Care
If completely healthy when born, most puppies and kittens should have their first exam scheduled with a vet between six and eight weeks of age. Puppies and kittens require a unique program of care to ensure proper growth and development, so it is important to schedule an appointment early on to set them on the route to optimal health and well-being.
Block House Creek Animal Hospital’s New Pet or Puppy/Kitten care includes:
A complete veterinary “nose-to-tail” physical examination
Any necessary vaccinations and deworming protocols
Discussion of proper nutrition, supplements or dietary needs
Discussion of spay/neuter procedures
Internal and external parasite checks
Heartworm prevention protocols
Basic training suggestions
Dental checkup and discussion of at-home dental care
We encourage you to ask as many questions as you may have about your new family member. As your partner in their health, we are here to help you feel informed and comfortable in all your decisions.
Senior Care for Pets
Our pets age at a faster rate than humans. Pets that have reached the age of 7 are considered to be in their old age and examinations every six months are in order to help them live a longer, happier life. As pets age, diet, lifestyle and care requirements change, and it is important that you as a pet owner are aware of how you can best care for them as they get older. Senior pet healthcare requires attention to several important factors:
Diet and weight management
Joint health, especially in terms of treating and maintaining arthritic joints
Early disease detection blood and urine tests
Function of thyroid, kidneys, and liver
Eye, vision and ear health
Discussion of pain management protocols
Routine examinations and testing allow us to determine the normal health status for your pet. Establishing these results helps us detect any abnormalities early. An early diagnosis is crucial to your pet’s health and may also greatly reduce treatment costs down the road. Your vet will also take time to discuss nutritional requirements for aging pets, as their dietary needs will change with age or illness.
