Preventative Care

Your pet is a member of your family. Like the other members of your family, regular medical appointments are necessary to ensure they stay in optimal health. We would like to look at the benefits of preventative care with Dr. Blum and our team at Holden Animal Clinic & Supply.

Preventative Care


An important part of preventative care is vaccinations. At your pet care appointments, your veterinarian will provide all the necessary vaccinations to help your pet stay protected from illnesses and diseases.

Parasite Prevention

Parasites like heartworms can cause your pet a great deal of pain, discomfort, and even death. However, an annual exam will help your veterinarian screen for heartworms and provide the necessary medications to keep your pet protected.

Dental Care

Pet dental care is as important as human dental care. Among other things, a lack of pet dental care can lead to an infection that can spread to the kidney, heart, and liver. Our veterinary care team will check for dental issues at each preventative care appointment and develop a treatment plan if any issues are detected.

Flea and Tick Prevention

Fleas and ticks are more than just an irritation. They can transmit things like tapeworms to your pet and your family. An annual exam with your pet doctor can keep your furry friend and your home protected from these pesky and potentially dangerous pests.

Screening for Medical Problems

Like preventative care for humans, regular exams help our veterinary care team screen for issues with your pet. We will check your pet’s heart, weight, and more. If any potential issues arise, your vet will work with you to develop a treatment plan.

Guidance and Recommendations

Another important part of pet care appointments is the information and guidance you will receive as a pet owner. Your veterinarian will help you choose the best food and treatment options. You will also receive recommendations on diet and exercise, pet hygiene, spaying and neutering, and much more. Such information can make your job easier and ensure your pet has the best care.
