Pet Wellness & Preventive Care at Boyd Lake Veterinary Center
Getting your pets off to a solid start with early puppy or kitten care is important, but it’s also essential to maintain pet’s health with routine and preventive are, as well. Here at Boyd Lake Veterinary Center, our Loveland, CO, veterinarian offers everything from comprehensive exams to vaccinations and routine surgery and microchipping. Read on to learn more about the services at our respected vet hospital.
Wellness Exams for Pets
Most animals will have their first wellness exam within a few weeks of age and it often occurs in concert with their first set of vaccinations around 2 months old. During these exams, our veterinarian in Loveland will give your pet a full inspection from head to toe.
Our veterinarian will assess your pets' eyes, ears, teeth, hind sides, and feel their abdomens and bones for any signs of problems invisible to the naked eye. We typically run a few tests such as taking a fecal and blood sample to rule out congenital diseases or precursors to problems in adulthood.
Essential Pet Vaccinations
Animals, even those that stay indoors, need to have a series of core vaccines, such as the rabies vaccine and those that help stave off the most common conditions that plague canines and felines. Rabies vaccination is required by law. Other core vaccinations are often administered in all-in-one shots for convenience. Our vet may recommend certain non-core shots depending on your pet’s typical lifestyle and whether you have multiple pets.
Spaying & Neutering for Pets
Beyond helping minimize unwanted pet numbers, spaying and neutering your pet can benefit them emotionally and physically. Many pets remain calmer and tend to wander and make mating calls less often. Health benefits include eliminating pregnancy dangers and the prevention of a number of cancers associated with the reproductive system. Our vet hospital has safely performed hundreds of these procedures for pets in Loveland and the surrounding communities.
