While providing traditional companion animal veterinary services, the Animal Hospital of Laveen is also unique in that is has been established as one of the new breed of Wellness Practices.
The reasoning behind this approach is that it will be better for both your pet and your budget to diagnose disease early before their condition worsens.
Often we see patients once their condition has become so serious there is often little we can do to help. Preventative medicine (wellness care) is our goal; therefore, our recommendations will be different than that you may have received in the past. We recommend your pet have a wellness exam annually, heartworm testing & preventative medication, intestinal parasite prevention, tick prevention, dental prophylaxis and appropriate levels of blood and urine screening tests. In addition our vaccination program differs from the standard annual vaccination in that we tailor the vaccinations to your pet's risk exposure.
