The doctors and staff at Taunton Road Animal Hospital are focused on preventing what diseases are preventable. Maintaining a health vaccine schedule and parasite testing is important. Your pet’s individual lifestyle will be evaluated and vaccine needs tailored to fit the lifestyle. The most important part of preventive visits is the comprehensive annual physical examination (for pets 7 years and older every 6 months). With pets aging approximately 7 years to our 1 year, our professional staff will pay close attention to changes and certain conditions and address them before they become problems.
