At East Side Animal our goal is to prevent illness and disease whenever possible. Preventive medicine is important for all dogs and cats whether they are young or aging. We carry products that can be given every 30 days to prevent Heartworm Disease, intestinal parasites (worms), fleas and ticks. A simple blood test can determine if your pet is Heartworm negative before starting a monthly preventive. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about how to protect your pet from Heartworm disease, intestinal worms, fleas and ticks. Preventive medicine is important when pets are young, but as pets age, and become prone to certain disease processes, annual exams and blood tests are even more critical.

Annual exams, blood tests, urinalysis, fecal and thyroid screening have the potential to alert us to problems not clinically obvious and give us valuable information about your pet’s health. We understand the changes your pet may experience as they grow older, and we also know the importance of keeping your pet healthy as they enter their golden years.

Please call us today at (317) 547-3523 to learn more about preventive medicine as well as recommended screening for your senior pet.
