Your furry friends bring you companionship and joy. If only for that, they deserve the best care possible. That’s why you need to make sure you have a veterinarian available to address health issues in your pet as they arise. You don’t need to wait for an emergency before bringing your pet to the animal hospital. It is highly recommended that you make regular visits to ensure your pet is in optimal health.
No matter what type of pet you have, keeping them in good health should be your number one priority. Animals that love to be outdoors, such as dogs, are especially susceptible to a variety of risk factors such as infections. Preventive care can help catch any possible illness your pet may have contracted outside as early as possible. The sooner you find out about the issue, the better the chances of treating it.
Benefits of Diagnostics
Pets unfortunately cannot articulate their medical problems to their owners. Most of the time, we have to rely on keen observation to see if they are experiencing discomfort. There may be telltale signs, but you cannot be sure until you bring them to a veterinarian.
Even then, it is not always immediately known what’s ailing your pet. Diagnostics will have to be done to provide you with a definitive answer. Our in-house laboratory makes it easier and more convenient for our veterinary staff to get the required answers to plan an appropriate course of treatment for your pet.
There are plenty of reasons why your beloved pet would require emergency services –old age, rough play, and the ingestion of bad food are all common reasons Sioux Falls residents visit our animal hospital. If something is affecting your pet’s mobility, or your pet has ingested a foreign object, our veterinarian will perform digital x-rays to accurately diagnose your pet before carrying out prompt care.
