Prevention is better than cure
Cairns Vet Clinic‘s goal is to deliver the best Vet Care for your pet. The best way to acheive this is through client education and proactive preventative health care. Rather than wait for something to go wrong and then try to fix it, its much better to prevent common health problems through good diet, home care, parasite prevention, vaccination and general hygeine.
A large proportion of the problems we treat in pets are completely preventable. Deadly diseases like parvovirus, hookworm, and heartworm are common in dogs, yet these can be eliminated completely using safe and effective preventative health care like vaccination, worming and heartworm prevention.
Many other common and serious diseases are also largely preventatble. For example, many cases of skin disease results from flea & tick infestation, dental disease is extremely common and obesity is a major factor in many chronic disease including heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis.
A regular check-up at Cairns Vet Clinic helps to pick up problems early and change your pets care and lifestyle to prevent big problems before they occur.
