Frequently Asked Questions

How often should my pet have an exam and blood work?

At the very least, your pet should come into Holt Animal Hospital for a check up once a year. Yearly vaccine boosters and routine exams can prevent harmful illness in the future. Of course if you notice that your pet is not acting normal or is in obvious pain please call our clinic for an appointment.

Why does my pet need a dental procedure?

Regular teeth cleaning can prevent harmful bacteria from building up and infecting an animal, but sometimes your pet will show signs of dental disease no matter the preventative measures. Our pets will show signs of decreased appetite and whining while eating when they have an abscessed tooth or decaying gum disease. Holt Animal Hospital is well equipped to handle all dental procedures needed.

What are heartworms and how can I prevent my pet from getting them?

Heartworms are parasites that are spread to dogs and even some cats through mosquito bites. The best treatment for heartworm disease is preventative disease! Holt Animal Hospital carries a wide variety of heartworm preventative including chewy treats and injectable medicines.
