Preventative Care Services
Cherokee Hills Veterinary Hospital embraces a focus on preventative medicine based on the specific life-stage of your pet. Each patient is assessed individually based on factors, such as, species, breed, age, and environmental challenges. After the assessment, we offer tailored recommendations for prevention, nutrition, and diagnostic work-ups appropriate for your pet.
The key to Cherokee Hills Veterinary Hospital Wellness Program is an emphasis on the annual health examination. Each year when your pet comes in he or she will receive a comprehensive physical exam and age appropriate ancillary diagnostics (such as blood pressure screening, parasite tests and blood work) to screen for early signs of disease.
Our role is to educate you on those procedures and
medications especially beneficial for your pet. This allows us to be more
flexible with our recommendations, and gives you more control of your pets'
We recently upgraded to state-of-the-art dental and anesthesia machines which allow us to perform more complex dental procedures more safely and in less time, thereby reducing anesthetic risks. Our new dental unit has multiple functions that allow us to provide more comprehensive dental care.These updates, combined with safer inhalant anesthetics and anesthesia monitoring devices allow us to minimize anesthetic risks while providing more comprehensive care.
