Canine Preventative Care in Tulsa

A Proactive Approach to Your Dog’s Health

At Southern Hills Veterinary Hospital, we know how much you care for your beloved dog. There’s a reason that they’re referred to as “man’s best friend,” after all. Your dog is more than just a pet, they’re a part of the family, and that’s why you want to be sure that they’re healthy and happy.

The best way to do this is through canine preventative care. By ensuring your dog receives his or her annual exam at our Tulsa animal hospital, we’ll be able to prevent and treat diseases in your pet at the earliest stage, oftentimes before symptoms even begin to show.

Contact us online or call (918) 203-6339 today to schedule your pet’s appointment.

Preventative Care Services

For the health of your dog, we recommend the following preventative measures:

  • Annual exam: During your pet’s annual exams, our experienced Tulsa veterinarians will evaluate nearly every aspect of their health. From their oral hygiene and temperature to the health of their skin and coat, we’ll evaluate it all to ensure that your dog is in the best shape possible. If we notice any warning signs of an illness or a disease, we’ll immediately begin treatment.
  • Parasite control: Ticks and fleas are a common nuisance for dogs, and they can lead to illness or infection. Luckily, they are easily preventable and treatable through anti-parasitic medication.
  • Dental care: Many dog owners don’t take their pet’s dental hygiene very seriously. It is actually extremely important to their overall health. Through annual teeth cleanings, you can rest assured that their teeth and mouth are properly taken care of.
  • Vaccinations: Making sure your dog is up to date on their vaccinations is the easiest way to ensure they are healthy. Vaccinations can prevent the most common diseases and infections including parvo, rabies, distemper, and more.
  • Behavioral concerns: With your dog unable to let you know when something is wrong, they often resort to displaying odd or new behavioral patterns. If your dog has been acting erratically, such as soiling inside your home or excessively barking, this could be their way of letting you know that there is an underlying medical condition.
  • Nutrition: Just like humans, dogs require a healthy and nutritional diet in order to aid their immune system and make sure that they age and grow at a healthy pace.
  • Skin and coat care: In order to avoid infections, matting, and mange, it’s very important for your pet to have regular grooming and washing. Not only will they look great, but they will feel great too!

Senior Dogs

As your dog ages, preventative care becomes even more important to their overall health. At Southern Hills Veterinary Hospital, we recommend two exams per year for elderly dogs. Our veterinarians will be able to adjust any treatments that your dog is currently taking and ensure that they are getting the medical attention that they need.

When you bring your dog(s) into our animal clinic in Tulsa, you’ll immediately recognize the care that every member of our staff provides each and every animal we take care of.

If your dog is in need of their annual exam, or you would like to utilize one of our other veterinary services, contact us today to schedule an appointment.

Happy, Healthy Pets
