Our pet care team in Sherman is dedicated to supporting the life you build for your pet and being available to answer questions and offer suggestions about their care. This is where annual pet wellness exams come in—excellent health is maintained with early disease detection and prevention. This can be achieved with yearly visits to our hospital for exams and open communication with your veterinarian.
What Does Your Pet Need for a Healthy Life?
What every pet needs to enjoy lifelong health depends on their own unique condition, lifestyle, and temperament. Starting with your pet’s very first visit and pet wellness exam, we'll create a detailed medical history that acts as a roadmap for future care. While every pet is different, there are several essentials for a healthy life:
- Yearly physical exams
- A balanced diet (we carry a variety of prescription diet foods for pets)
- Daily exercise
- Grooming (ask about our bathing services)
- Routine lab work that includes blood, urine, and fecal testing to screen for parasites and other problems
- Routine vaccinations to protect your pet from harmful viruses like rabies and parvovirus
- Monthly doses of parasite preventive
We have always had the best expereiences whenever we go to Texoma Veterinary Hospital. Our dogs have received the best care there.
Why Pets Need Parasite Protection
Heartworm and Lyme disease are two of the most common parasitic diseases affecting pets. Spread by mosquitoes and ticks, respectively, these diseases can make pets very sick or even be fatal. Additionally, pets infected with Lyme disease or roundworm can unknowingly pass their infection on to people.
Luckily, it’s easy to keep your pet protected from these and other diseases with routine exams. We carry the safest, most effective parasite control medications to prevent infestations and the spread of disease. If you would like to know more, let us know!
Routine is Important
Pets benefit from routine just like their human families do, especially when it comes to their health. Yearly pet exams, vaccinations, lab tests, and discussions about your pet’s diet and activity will keep them on the path to a longer life. Keeping to a consistent schedule also makes it easier for us to detect early signs of illness and be proactive with your pet’s care. This is especially important for puppies, kittens, and seniors.
