Preventive Services

A priority of Maple Springs Veterinary Hospital is to stress the importance of preventive care for your pets. Regular and thorough physical examinations, whether your pet is healthy or ill, are critical in preventing and properly treating many diseases. Vaccinations, regular heartworm testing and prevention and intestinal parasite testing are all vital in maintaining your pet's ongoing health. Regular visits to the veterinarian will reduce problems for your pet and will most often reduce treatment costs by detecting problems earlier when they are more effectively and easily treated.
