Preventative Medicine

Learn About Preventative Medicine with Georgetown Animal Hospital

Here at Georgetown Animal Hospital, Inc., we care about your pets. We offer preventative services that are the backbone of our hospital. By providing preventative medicine, we can try to address your pet's health before they have any major health problems. 

Talk to Your Veterinarian about Preventative Medication

Preventative medicine is an important part of taking care of your pet. Preventative techniques include:

  • Giving pets vaccines
  • Giving flea and tick control treatments to pets
  • Conducting at least one yearly physical exam
  • Performing dental services annually
  • Running routine labwork 

Using this kind of preventative medicine, it is easier for our team to identify health problems before they reach a point where they are difficult to treat. In some cases, we can treat medical problems before your pet is feeling the effects. 

Get Support With Tick Control and Flea Control

Pests like fleas and ticks can make your pet sick. That is why providing them with regular tick control and flea control medications is so important. Preventative medications like these kill the pests after they bite or upon contact, depending on the type you use. 

Fleas and ticks are common. Fleas are a parasite that are common on cats and dogs, and they can end up coming into your home and biting you, too. They have four stages in their life cycle and can cause many issues, but early preventative treatment helps keep them under control and off your pet. 

Ticks draw blood and may transfer many horrible illnesses to your pets. A preventative medication helps prevent them from suffering from ill effects. Some illnesses pets can develop from tick bites include:

  • Rocky Mountain spotted fever
  • Tularemia
  • Lyme disease
  • Colorado tick fever
  • Babesiosis
  • Anaplasmosis

...and others. A simple pill, medicated collar or topical treatment can help prevent fleas and ticks from infecting your pet.
