We believe the best way to treat disease is to prevent it. Preventative care includes physical examinations, diagnostic testing, parasite control, and vaccination schedules tailored to your pets particular lifestyle. We take the time to discuss with you what is best for your pet, rather than taking the "cookie cutter" approach. Cabin Creek Animal Hospital strives to help you understand what you can do to keep your pet healthy, fit, and active for as many years as possible.
Vaccinations are given in a tailored schedule to ensure we are meeting the legal requirements while providing the best levels of protection needed based on a pet's individual lifestyle.
Our doctors recommend year-round parasite control for both dogs and cats. Even indoor cats are at risk for parasites. Simparica Trio and Revolution Plus are our most common broad-spectrum products.
They say you are what you eat! Nutrition is the cornerstone of health and is discussed at every visit. Feeding a high quality diet in a way that is supportive to the needs of an individual patient is something we value and promote. Our team members are continually participating in additional nutrition training to ensure we are providing the best information possible. A nutrition recommendation is made with each visit and we are happy to perform full consultations for our clients as needed.
For healthy young patients, annual testing of blood, urine and stool is strongly recommended. If we can diagnose or identify a concern prior to a patient showing symptoms, our treatment options are often less invasive. Blood profiles are used to assess organ function, cell counts, exposure to tick and mosquito-born diseases and in some patients, thyroid function. The examination of urine will provide information about bladder, kidney and overall health. Stool samples are tested for multiple types of intestinal worms, as well as other parasites that are invisible to the naked eye, such as giardia and coccidia.
