At Capital Heights Veterinary Clinic, we offer personalized wellness care for our patients with a focus on preventative medicine. We believe that the best way to establish a long and healthy life for your pet, reduce the development of serious illnesses, and minimize related health care costs is to maintain regular wellness checkups, and preventative care.
The key to keeping your companion healthy and happy is making sure that your pet has an annual health examination. We assess each patient individually based on factors such as species, breed, age, and environmental challenges. During a wellness checkup, your pet will receive a comprehensive physical exam and age appropriate diagnostics such as blood work, blood pressure screening, and checks for parasites. Regular check-ups can detect disease in the early stages, improving your pet's ability to fight back.
We are committed to providing personal attention to the unique needs of each patient and the concerns of each individual pet owner instead of promoting a one-size-fits-all solution. Many diseases that were once fatal to pets can now be prevented through the use of vaccinations. We follow the vaccination requirements set out by the American Animal Hospital Association; however, we customize our vaccine recommendations based on the pet and owner’s lifestyle.
We will develop programs for the specific needs of your pet regarding the best ways to control fleas and ticks in your house, your yard, and on your pet. We can spay or neuter your pet at the appropriate age, not just to prevent unwanted litters, but to lessen the development of cancer in both genders of dogs and cats.
Whether your pet is a puppy or a kitten, young adult, or senior, come see us at Capital Heights Veterinary Clinic for your pet health care needs. Our service area includes the Greater Baton Rouge area and beyond.
