Preventative Care

The Physical Exam

The single most valuable service a veterinarian can offer your pet is a physical exam.  A Google search or phone call simply cannot replace the expert information you will gain from a complete, hands-on physical exam and conversation with your veterinarian.  At Cleveland Road Animal Hospital, we pride ourselves on doing a very thorough physical exam every 4 weeks for pets under 4 months, every year for adult patients, and every 6 months for senior pets. We want to catch issues before they become a problem so your pet can stay happy and healthy. Our exams include a thorough nose-to-tail exam. We will examine the oral cavity, eyes, and ears. We will listen to the heart and lungs, and palpate the abdomen for any abnormalities. Orthopedic exams will also be performed on at-risk breeds, older, possible arthritic pets, or whenever warranted or requested. We will address any and all questions and concerns you may have. The doctor will communicate the physical exam findings and his/her recommendations unique for your animal.

Vaccines

Giving every vaccine, to every pet, every year is a thing of the past.  At CRAH, we tailor your pet’s vaccine protocol based on their lifestyle and risks with vaccine intervals that range from from one month to three years.  Every pet and every household has different needs, and we make sure your pet gets the right vaccines at the right time, nothing more, nothing less.  We use the most effective, safest vaccines available today to reduce the risk of reactions. We follow the canine and feline vaccination guidelines established by leaders in the veterinary industry, the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) and other advisory organizations. 

 

Wellness Plans

Your pet’s medical and nutritional needs change as their bodies age. A Wellness Plan helps manage their evolving health care needs by monitoring vital organ function and detecting problems early, before they become life threatening.

The Adult Wellness Plan offered by Cleveland Road Animal Hospital include all necessary examinations, vaccines, laboratory tests and other services essential to protect your pet against illness and disease through an affordable monthly payment plan.  Our premium plans also include additional services like routine dental cleanings and more extensive annual preventative care diagnostic testing. Our goal is to keep your pet healthy and happy during the prime years of their life while also minimizing the financial ups and downs that come with caring for your pet.

Puppy and Kitten Care Plans

Puppies and kittens inherit a natural immunity from their mother that protects them from birth until about 6 weeks of age.  After 6 weeks, your pet depends on you to continue that protection until their own immune system is fully developed. A Puppy or Kitten Wellness Plan is designed to continue that protection by providing all services necessary to carry your young pet through the important first year of life.

Preventative, routine health care is the key to a longer, happier life for your young pet. The puppy and kitten plans offered by CRAH  include all necessary examinations, vaccines, labwork and other tests necessary in the first year of life. If your pet has not been spayed or neutered, there is a plan that includes the pre-surgical bloodwork, hospitalization for the day, surgical procedure, and a recheck examination.

Senior Pet Care Plans

Our pets are living longer thanks to advances in veterinary medicine, nutrition and vaccinations. Cleveland Road Animal Hospital treats geriatric patients with their own customized treatment plans and vaccination schedules to meet their special needs. As our patients age, we are happy to provide customized geriatric care to them and help our patients’ owners manage the ever changing needs and recommendations of our older pets.
