Preventative Pet Care in Coon Rapids, MN

Let us help protect your pet. We are firm believers that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. As pets age, they become more susceptible to certain diseases or illnesses. Along with annual examinations, regular dental cleanings, and monthly parasite (fleas, ticks) treatments, we’ll ask about any other issues your pet may be dealing with during every visit in an effort to head off any major problems.

Regular Veterinary Check-Ups
Scheduling pet wellness exams is crucial for early detection of any underlying health issues. These appointments enable us to conduct thorough examinations and provide essential advice tailored to your pet’s needs.

Pet Vaccines
We start your pet’s vaccine schedule from your very first visit and work diligently to make sure they stay up-to-date. Vaccines are special proteins that prime the immune system to fight off specific infections. They work to reduce the severity of diseases or prevent infection completely.

Dental Care
Often overlooked, dental hygiene significantly impacts a pet’s overall health. Incorporate regular brushing and dental check-ups into their routine to prevent dental diseases and maintain oral health.

Flea, Tick, and Heartworm Prevention
It’s also important to protect your pet from fleas, ticks, and heartworm. Fleas and ticks can harbor disease and adversely affect your pet’s health. Heartworm is a dangerous parasite that lives in the heart of dogs and cats, damages the heart muscle, and can be fatal. Monthly medication and annual testing are important to make sure that your pet is protected.

Balanced Nutrition
A well-balanced diet plays a pivotal role in maintaining your pet’s health. We offer nutritional counseling services to help guide you on decisions related to appropriate portions of high-quality food suitable for your pet’s age, breed, and health requirements.

Pet Insurance for Preventative Care
WellHaven has designed Care Plans that are tailored to your pet’s needs. Our pet insurance covers routine care like annual examinations, unlimited clinic visits, and so much more.

Maintain A Safe Home and Active Lifestyle

There are a number of preventative measures pet owners should take to keep their beloved pets healthy.

Pet-Proof Your Home
Your pet’s safety at home is paramount for their well-being. Pet-proofing your living space and eliminating potential hazards minimizes the risk of accidents or injuries to your furry friend. Secure toxic substances, keep small objects out of reach, and create designated areas for your pet to relax and feel secure.

Support Your Pet’s Emotional Well-being
Pets thrive on love and attention. Make sure they receive adequate mental stimulation, affection, and social interaction to prevent anxiety or stress-related issues.

Keep Them Active
Regular exercise is as vital for pets as it is for humans. Engaging your pet in physical activities not only helps manage their weight but also fosters mental stimulation and prevents behavioral issues. Activities like brisk walks, interactive games, or designated playtimes cater to your pet’s specific needs, keeping them healthy and happy.
