So, you spent a Sunday afternoon at one of the local pet shelters or pet supply retail store…and somehow you walked out of the place with a new (to you!) companion. We’ve all been there! Now that you’re a family of plus one, it’s time to start thinking about your new pet’s needs. It’s not necessary to go overboard with the cat toys or the

dog bones all at once, though we certainly can’t fault you for that. One of your first real responsibilities as a pet owner, however, is finding a veterinarian. If you find the right place, this will be the team caring for your furry friend for years to come. But what do you look for when you’re searching out a pet clinic in Matthews?

The foundation of a good life is always going to be preventive and wellness care. Those yearly or semi-yearly trips to the vet’s office cover quite a bit of ground, especially when you think about how quickly our canine and feline companions age. We have to test for intestinal parasites, deadly heartworm infections, problems with the urinary tract or bladder and all these other little ways our pets can get sick. So many life-threatening illnesses don’t start showing more obvious symptoms until it’s too late. Perhaps one of our favorite parts of being in veterinary care, though, is knowing how many diseases we’ve prevented in the first place. Your pet’s regular vaccinations could very well save their life. Regular dental cleanings can also help pets avoid painful oral health problems, too.

Dr. Pressly and Dr. Drake here at Pressly Animal Hospital each have extensive experience with animal health and veterinary care. They have prolonged the lives of many animals while helping them maintain a high quality of life so that pet parents could enjoy those special relationships longer.
