Protect your pet.

Preventative Care

Our goal is to keep your pet happy and healthy through all stages of their life.

We work hard to keep your pet happy and healthy.

Prevention is key.

From their first visit to their later years, prevention is one of the most important things you can do for your pet. Whether it’s vaccines to protect from certain diseases or preventative medication that protects them from parasites like fleas and ticks—we’ll make sure they’re on the right path for all stages of their life. Every single exam is a full nose-to-tail exam to make sure we have the full picture of your pet’s health.

Vaccinations

Did you know that many of the diseases and illnesses that can affect dogs and cats are preventable with suitable pet vaccination protocol? Animals are faced with many deadly infectious diseases and vaccines can help protect them. Over the years, vaccines against dangerous diseases have saved millions of pets and virtually eliminated some fatal diseases that were once common.

We’ll work to put together the right vaccine schedule for your pet, and we’ll send reminders to make sure that you’re keeping your pet up to date with their vaccines. This way, they’ll be protected if they do come in contact with a deadly disease.

Parasite Prevention
Keeping your pets protected from parasites can save their life. Fleas and ticks are prevalent in the Clearfield area. Not only are these parasites a source of irritation to your pet, but they can also harbor disease and adversely affect your pet’s health. In addition, heartworm is a dangerous parasite that lives in the heart of dogs and cats, damages the heart muscle, and can be fatal. Thankfully, all of these illnesses can be prevented, and Herring Veterinary Service can help you keep your pet safe.
Microchipping
According to PetFinder, over 10 million pets go missing every year, and one in three pets will go missing at some point in their life. You can enhance your pet’s chance of coming home after getting lost by microchipping them.

A microchip is about the size and shape of a grain of rice and is placed underneath your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades. Microchip implantation takes only a few minutes and is very safe. Each microchip is unique and carries vital information about your pet—including your name, address, and contact information.

If a lost pet is picked up by animal control or found by a good Samaritan and presented to a veterinarian, a quick scan of the microchip reveals the identification number.

Dental Care

Did you know that over 65% of all cats and dogs show symptoms of oral disease? Exceptionally bad breath, a noticeable brownish plaque at the base of the teeth, excessive drooling, sore or bleeding gums when eating or chewing, and decreased appetite can all be signs that a pet’s teeth require attention.

Maintaining strong dental health and a regular cleaning program not only assure that your pet’s mouth and teeth will remain in excellent condition, but they will also help to prevent infections that can spread through the bloodstream to affect major organs such as your pet’s liver, kidneys, and heart.

We help with dental exams, X-rays, cleanings, and other dental procedures to keep your pet’s smile bright.

Nutritional Counseling
Your pet’s overall health and well-being can often be attributed to their nutrition. Your pet’s nutritional needs change with age and activity level, and we’ll help find the perfect formulated diet that can help in the management of various medical conditions like kidney disease, diabetes, and heart disease.

Why is this important?

Obesity is a common problem among pets, as it can be easy to overfeed a pet that knows how to beg. But being overweight is a serious problem for animals and can cause real health problems as they get older. With proper diet and exercise, all pets should be able to meet their dietary needs and be within a healthy weight range.

Please let us help with your pet’s diet and nutritional intake.
