The Importance of Preventative Care

Routine preventative care is extremely important in ensuring the health of your pet by detecting and preventing serious diseases and medical problems early.

At Westuck Veterinary Hospital, we listen to you and the needs of your pet to ensure we provide the best individualized care to keep them healthy. Some vaccinations are based on lifestyle/enviromental exposure. We will take the time to develop a preventative program that suits the needs of your individual pet.
