Your Pet’s Health Begins With Preventive Care

Your pets are a part of your family, and providing them with what they need to be happy and healthy starts with regular preventive care. At Animal Medical Centers of Loudoun, our veterinarians and staff offer a full array of wellness services to help care for your pet and routinely monitor their health.

Caring for your pets’ health is important throughout their lives. That’s why your veterinarian can provide preventive care, whether you’re introducing your first kitten or puppy or scheduling an appointment for a pet who’s been part of your family for years.

Wellness Exams: A wellness exam is the cornerstone of preventive care, as it helps to detect potential health issues early. During a wellness exam, your veterinarian will assess your pet’s overall health from nose to tail, order any necessary diagnostic tests, and look to identify any signs of illness or injury.

Puppy and Kitten Care: A strong foundation for a healthy life can begin early with puppy and kitten care. Your new fur babies will get checkups, parasite prevention, and nutrition management guidance as they grow.

Adult and Senior Pets: Care for adult and senior pets takes your pet's age into account. Your pet's health is supported by wellness exams, diagnostic testing, and preventive treatments. Your pet's overall health will give your veterinarian context about chronic conditions and provide insight when tailoring therapeutic or medical treatment plans.

Vaccinations: Vaccines are an important part of any overall strategy for protecting your pet from disease and parasites. Your vet can assess your pet’s needs and offer a tailored vaccination schedule.

Nutritional Counseling: Your vet can offer nutritional advice that considers your pet’s age, breed, and lifestyle. Providing your pet with good nutrition can help prevent obesity and other health problems.

Microchipping: Pet microchipping is a simple and safe procedure that increases the chances of your pet being reunited with you if lost. This service is currently available for dogs and cats.

Starting and maintaining a consistent routine of preventive‌ care for your pet can help them build a foundation for many happy and healthy years. You can partner with your veterinarian to build a care plan that best suits you and your pet.
