Our Preventative Services for Dogs and Cats

Preventative care requires a multi-pronged approach, with key services that include:

Comprehensive Wellness Exams

The comprehensive wellness exam involves checking your pet from nose to tail for signs of health problems and making sure they’re pain-free. We recommend seeing your pet for these exams at least once a year to stay on top of their health, understand their evolving needs, and maintain an ongoing partnership with you. During the exam, we strongly recommend voicing any concerns or questions you have so we can address them right then and there. We want you to be as actively involved as possible in keeping your best friend healthy!

Age-Related Blood Screenings

Routine blood screenings are another key factor in evaluating your pet’s health and keeping illness at bay. We provide age-related screenings with our in-house Abaxis equipment to check for issues such as diabetes, hypo/hyperthyroidism, kidney disease, heart failure, urinary infections, and more.

These tests are capable of providing our team with information about your pet’s health that we would not be able to obtain with just a physical exam.


Vaccines play a significant role in the prevention of disease. At Animal Clinic of Butler, we carry the best cat and dog vaccines available to protect against rabies, distemper, feline distemper, and more. We offer core (essential) vaccines and life-style based vaccines, which allows us to create a customized vaccination regimen for your pet.

Parasite Prevention

Fleas, ticks and heartworms are an unfortunate fact of life for animals, but while we can’t eradicate the pests from the face of the earth, we can keep them off your pet! Our hospital provides routine testing to check for heartworm disease, intestinal parasites, and tick-borne diseases. We also carry a wide variety of parasite preventatives formulated for dogs and cats of all sizes.

Senior Pet Care

Senior Pet Care

Your pet’s senior years are a critical stage of their life. Many dogs and cats develop chronic conditions like arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and other issues as they age, and regular checkups become even more important. For senior dogs and cats, we recommend an exam every 6 months to keep an eye on any conditions they have and make sure they’re staying as comfortable and healthy as possible. Our goal is to help your senior pet have the best quality of life in their golden years.
