Preventative Veterinary Care in Nassau

Choose One of New York’s Oldest & Most Trusted Animal Hospitals

Preventative care is essential to the health of any pet. Just like you make routine trips to the doctor or dentist, so should your pet. Nassau Veterinary Clinic offers comprehensive preventative care for dogs, cats, pocket pets, and other small animals. Our skilled veterinarians take pride in providing quality care in a friendly environment that helps your pet feel safe and comfortable.

Our preventative veterinary care begins with a thorough physical examination of your pet. This can help us get a better picture of your pet’s current condition based on every key body part and system. We can combine the results of this exam with your pet’s medical history and any pre-existing conditions, your observations, and more, to create a fully customized medical plan for your pet.

Our Comprehensive Pet Physical Examination

If your pet is to lead a happy and healthy life, your veterinarian must have a clear picture of his or her current health. At Nassau Veterinary Clinic, we base this upon an analysis of body systems. We utilize a 12-point evaluation that assesses the entire pet.

During our comprehensive pet physical examination, we look in detail at:

  • Coat and skin
  • Eyes
  • Ears
  • Nose and throat
  • Mouth, teeth, and gums
  • Legs and paws
  • Lungs
  • Heart
  • Abdomen
  • Lymph nodes
  • Urogenital system
  • Central nervous system

Vaccines/Vaccinations

Vaccinations are a key part of providing proper care for your pet. Vaccines stimulate an immune system response to a certain disease-causing organism, which can help the body fight future infections from such organisms. Vaccines can provide immunity to certain diseases, lessening their impact or preventing them altogether.

The right vaccination schedule can:

  • Prevent many illnesses that could affect your pet.
  • Help avoid costly treatments for preventable diseases.
  • Prevent the spread of diseases from pet to pet and even to people.
  • Prevent your pet from getting diseases, such as rabies and distemper, from wildlife.

Many cities and counties have ordinances in place that require certain vaccinations for household pets.

At Nassau Veterinary Clinic, we provide complete household pet vaccination services, in accordance with current vaccines and ordinances. Our veterinarians can ensure your pet’s vaccines are up to date, so your pet is fully protected.

Complete Wellness Care to Treat the “Whole Animal”

We can put the results of a physical examination together with everything else we know about your pet to create a personalized plan for his or her veterinary care. This is typically an annual plan, but we may recommend more frequent visits if your pet is older or has a medical condition that requires additional care. This plan will be based on your pet’s medical history and pre-existing conditions, if any, as well as your observations. Our veterinarians and staff will even consider your pet’s behavioral needs and can offer guidance related to any concerns you may have.
