Hardly a day goes by that we are not prompted through public service announcements (PSA) in the media to play a more active role in our personal healthcare. PSAs educate us about the benefits of routine screening for diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure. We have been taught the ABCs of skin cancer and risks of obesity and smoking and need for a colonoscopy. Early detection of health risks and disease gives wisdom to the saying "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure". This wisdom should be applied to our family pets as well.
We believe it is important to remind our clients that this is a core value and critical difference in the care you and your pets receive at Village Animal Hospital. We have taken bold action in the area of preventive medicine customized to the life stage, breed and social environment of your pet.. Our knowledge management program is designed to give clients complete information regarding treatment of illness as well as prevention and ongoing wellness care for each of our patients..
• Findings associated with each of your pet’s 12 body systems.
• Written comments on the significance of abnormalities.
• Suggested “next steps” to remedy the problem.
• Recommendations for at-home care to prevent reoccurrence.
Clients also receive individualized recommendations and an explanation of wellness diagnostics and professional services that will help reduce risks and prevent disease in thier pet based on its life stage, life style, breed and recognized risk factors. We invite questions and further discussion to help select recommended services.
We’re worked very hard to provide our clients with this level of care and are excited about the benefits. Through shared knowledge you can better participate in the care of your pet and choose preventive services that are appropriate for your family.
Call us if you have questions. We appreciate hearing from you.
