Preventive Care

At Gehrman Animal Hospital, we take a comprehensive approach to wellness care. Most people are familiar with annual or bi-annual vaccines (or "shots").  These are important, but they are only a portion of keeping your pet healthy.  The annual physical exam helps detect any problems or concerns "from the outside."  Like our own medical care, annual blood work allows the veterinarian to do an "internal" check of organ function.  We can catch disease processes in their early stages when they are most treatable - and potentially less expensive!  This is what preventive care means and our philosophy is that it is the best practice for your pet's health.  For more information about what can be learned with annual testing, refer to this information:
