PREVENTATIVE CARE MEDICINE
Preventative care is extremely important for the well-being and safety of our pets. We provide all core vaccines and testing including Rabies, Distemper, fecal parasite screening and tick disease/heartworm testing. In addition to the core requirements for pets we also will discuss your pets' lifestyle and what else may be needed to maintain optimal health, these vaccines may include bordetella, lyme, leptospirosis and feline leukemia.
Preventative medicine also means seeing your pet at least once per year until they are around 7 years of age when we will want to see them twice annually to stay ahead of any age changes your pet may begin to develop.
Some of our general recommendations will be changing in the upcoming year: annual heartworm/tick disease testing will be strongly encouraged and it will be required in order to purchase heartworm/parasite preventatives; early disease blood screenings will also be highly recommended so we can see trends and changes before your pet shows signs of illness or escalating disease; change in preventative medications from Heartgard/Nexgard to Interceptor and Credelio (see blog for more details) to give you better parasite control for the same or lower cost.
Per American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) and American Veterinary Medical Association say that the standard of preventative care should include:
- Annual physical exam, or more if indicated (i.e. senior pets)
- Up-to-date core vaccinations
- Annual heartworm/tick-disease testing
- Early disease screening: checks kidney, liver and other internal organs to watch for trends and changes
- Internal parasite (fecal) screening annually
- Lifestyle planning: optional vaccines and testing based on your pet's specific needs
- 12 months, year-round, heartworm/parasite prevention
- Dental, dietary and behavior assessment and care plan
At SBPH, our caring and compassionate staff will have these discussions with you at least once per year. Please know we understand that every situation is different, and although we make these recommendations the decision is always yours and we will always be here to support you and respect your choices. We are committed to providing you all the information, diagnostics, vaccinations and treatment plans/options you want and need for your pet to life the longest, healthiest and happiest life possible.

When your pet is feeling ill, the convenience of quick answers through in-house lab work (blood work, urinalysis, fecals, etc.) helps in the diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of disease, illness and injury. Our pets age about seven years to our one. Because of this, it is a good idea to have periodic lab work done.
Dentistry is an important part of your pet's health. Dental disease can lead to bad breath, swollen, bleeding gums, loose teeth, difficulty eating, and even more severe problems. By offering dental cleaning and dental x-rays we can help avoid these problems.
We perform spays, neuters, declaws, along with a wide variety of soft tissue surgeries. We also work with board-certified surgeons who perform orthopedic and more advanced surgeries at our facility. Continuous anesthetic monitoring is a routine part of surgery, as is individual observation until your pet is fully awake.
X-rays are a valuable tool for diagnosing a variety of diseases. It allows us to evaluate organ abnormalities and broken limbs, which would be difficult to pick up in a physical exam alone.
Cold laser therapy can treat a wide variety of ailments such as arthritis, soft tissue injuries, incision care, etc. Laser therapy uses specific wavelengths of light to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling.
