Dental Care

One of the most common conditions that we see in our patients is dental disease, because it is easiest for pet owners to miss!

At Affordable Pet Care Northwest, we offer a variety of dental services that can keep your pet's mouth healthy. Some of these services include:

Wellness Care

At Affordable Pet Care Northwest, we strive to educate our clients about proper care for their pets. A large part of what we do includes preventing diseases and keeping pets healthy. Unfortunately we still see a lot of preventable diseases. Preventive medicine and client education are some of the most important services that we provide. Some of our wellness services include:

  • Routine physical examinations
  • Annual vaccinations
  • Testing for heartworms, blood parasites, and intestinal parasites
  • External and internal parasite control
  • Educating clients about how to keep a pet healthy

Client education is a very important part of pet wellness, because a well-educated owner will know best how to care for their pet! We encourage you to ask us if you have any questions about your pet’s needs, and we’ll be glad to help.
