Acadiana West animal clinic proudly offers a wellness program for pets of any age. Preventing issues when possible is critical as is early diagnosis when not. We have x-ray equipment and bloodwork machines that is the latest and greatest. Our preventative medicine protocol is top notch and we carry a wide variety of medications.
If a wellness program is started early in the life of a pet it is more successful. Dr. Olivier has designed a wellness program for puppies and kittens that includes vaccines, nutritional needs, parasite treatment and prevention. Spaying and neutering are discussed as well as is the importance of baseline bloodwork. Part of a routine visit is spent educating you about dental care, grooming, proper growth rates and the best foods available. Heartworm disease prevention is an integral part of every visit as it is caused by mosquito bites and you are in south Louisiana.
Acadiana West has a strategy for keeping your maturing pets as healthy as possible. Vaccination protocols are explained and are very important to keeping your pet healthy. Bloodwork is beneficial as your pet matures because it can be compared to the baseline bloodwork established in puppyhood or kittenhood. We monitor your pets weight routinely to prevent obesity which causes a myriad of problems such as diabetes and joint disease. Your pets teeth are evaluated with every visit so early intervention can be implemented to prevent tooth loss.
