Preventative Care Services

At Ox Bottom Animal Hospital in Tallahassee, Florida, we want to partner with you in the life-long care of your pet so that you can have a long and stress-free relationship. Our main focus is to help you keep your pet with you for as long as possible. The key to having a healthy companion is providing regular preventative care.

Preventative health care maintained on a regular basis will allow our veterinarians the opportunity to get to know your pet personally. Since every pet is unique, your pet will be evaluated based on species, breed, age and lifestyle. Our caring doctors will review your pet’s behavior, diet, dental and body condition, and medical condition. They will check for diseases, parasites, and dental issues. Check-ups enable us to gather baseline information, look for any abnormalities before they develop into something severe, and they give us an open line of communication with you so that we can offer you knowledge about proper diet, exercise, and healthy habits for your pet.

Immunizations at an early age and consistent preventative treatments can protect your pets from common diseases such as heartworms and various contagious viruses. You will also receive counseling about spaying and neutering as well as microchipping.

Call us today to schedule an appointment for your pet so we can be proactive in your pet’s healthcare.
