High Quality Medicine
The staff at Turtle Creek Veterinary Medical Center hold memberships in many veterinary organizations and are dedicated to practicing current protocols and modern preventative medicine to ensure the safety and well being of your pet. Your pets are members of your family and we know that they deserve the opportunity to live long, happy and healthy lives.
Customized Preventative HealthcareAs partners in your pet's healthcare, we take a proactive approach to wellness recommendations and routine preventative care. Here at Turtle Creek, our wellness programs have been thoroughly researched and reviewed by our professional veterinary staff and are recommended based upon the latest guidelines. Because wellness care programs are inconsistent among practitioners in the veterinary community, we strongly feel that it is our responsibility to educate and protect our clients and their pets from parasites and diseases through preventative care.
Perhaps the most important aspect of your pet's preventative veterinary healthcare is a comprehensive physical examination of all 12 body systems which are:
- Cardiovascular system
- Organs of special senses (sight, taste, smell & hearing)
Many medical conditions are detected during the physical exam that you as the pet parent may not be aware of. Our pets cannot verbally communicate their symptoms and tend to hide their illnesses from the untrained eye. Veterinarians have been trained to combine their physical findings with a thorough history from our clients, to help determine risk factors for disease.
Because no two pets are the same, we have created our Love & Protection Guidelines to help construct a personalized health care plan for your pet. The fist step to creating your pet's health care plan is determining their age, and understanding their actual age in human years. For every year we grow older, our pets age approximately 7 years! Use the following list as a guideline to determine your pet's age. During your pet's next appointment, our staff will build a customized Love & Protection Guideline for your pet.
