Job Description

Prevention is always better than cure when it comes to your pet’s health. There are many viral, nutritional and parasitic conditions that are preventable with the correct management throughout your pets life. 

Preventative Medical Care for Your Pet

  • Worming and flea prevention – From birth your pet will be exposed to both internal and external parasites. Our veterinary staff can advise on the best prevention options your pet. There are many options available and treatment intervals vary depending on your pets needs so please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like some more information
  • Vaccinations – Your new puppy or kitten must stay with their mother until they are 8 weeks of age. Once they join your family we recommend booking an appointment with one of our vets for a new pet consultation where we can advise on vaccination requirements. Your new puppy or kitten will require a primary course of vaccines to protact them for the next 12 months, this primary course consists of an initial vaccine with a 2nd vaccine given 3-4 weeks later. These cover a variety of illnesses and are essential for your pet’s health. Your pet will require an annual booster to keep them protected. If you have any questions or if you are concerned that it has been more than 12 months since your pet has been vaccinated then please do not hesitate to contact our office, 
  • Pet dental health – Regular teeth cleaning and oral hygiene care is important for pets, to ensure they don’t develop gum disease and infections which in severe cases can result in  wider problems that can affect their internal organs.
  • Neutering – Although not compulsory, neutering your pet can help prevent many conditions affecting the reproductive organs such as mammary cancer, uterine infections, testicular cancer as well as behavioural issues. If you have questions regarding neutering your pet our veterinary staff would be more than happy to help answer them. 

Talking to our team of vets and nurses and bringing your pet in for a consultation we can work out a preventative care plan that will keep your pet fit and healthy. For more information about preventative medicine for your pet you can call your local Highfield Veterinary Clinic here.
