Feline Health Preventatives

The most important approach to health is prevention, which is the key ingredient of any recipe to avoid disease and illness in any living being. In pets, prevention of severe conditions is also essential because it avoids extra costs with veterinary care and hospitalization.

Nowadays, technology in medicine and veterinary medicine has allowed the manufacture of many products, such as vaccinations and worming tablets, that promote longevity and quality of life. For example, parvovirus and heartworm disease were very common deadly conditions that now can be easily prevented.

Most vets use standard protocols, such as annual vaccinations and commercial dry food as a standard of care. We aim better than that! Every pet is a single individual, so we provide individualized treatment to your pet.
