Why See a Veterinarian?
Our pets are part of our family. Just as any member of the family, pets also need medical care to prevent or treat illnesses. Keeping our pets healthy means they will live longer, happier lives. Essentials PetCare is devoted to ensuring all families can afford to visit a veterinarian for basic and preventative care for pets.
Did you know that just like people, animals can get colds, coughs, sore throats, urinary tract infections, and bladder stones? Sometimes a pet can tough out these annoyances that come up; other times a doctor can help alleviate the symptoms and prevent illnesses from getting more serious. Just like you, your pet needs a doctor from time to time too!
Besides common sicknesses, pets can also contract "zoonotic" diseases that can be both life-threatening to your pet, and be passed on to you and your human family members. By simply getting annual wellness exams, vaccines, and heartworm preventatives, you can prevent dangerous illnesses and the costly treatments that come with them. Essential preventative measures cost very little up front, and will spare your pet future discomfort, not to mention treatment costs of major illnesses.
