Wellness Care

Wellness/preventative care is a critical component to keeping your animal happy and comfortable. Often times animals hide their illnesses until it is too late, which makes routine physical examinations critical. By being able to identify and correct husbandry problems and find signs of early illness, we can help to prevent and treat problems earlier for your pet. All too often we see pocket pets after they have been ill for weeks or months which makes treating and “fixing” them much more difficult. Earlier detection means a healthier and happier pet!

Preventative care also includes:

  • immunizations for species requiring vaccinations
  • deworming
  • consultations on correct husbandry and diet for your exotic pet

What People
Have Said

"Since CAC has become my primary veterinary clinic I have introduced many friends, clients and my sisters to the clinic, both of which have told me how grateful they are to have "found" a clinic with such progressive and highly qualified doctors. The quality of the support staff that helps keep things moving smoothly is also important. The first impression you get of any clinic comes from the reception staff; at CAC you are always met with a smile and a big HELLO! The welcoming atmosphere, the mere presence of the building, the modern technology, the progressive thinking, the compassion shown to the humans and animals are all things I love about CAC but it truly is the people inside the building that keep me coming back! THANK YOU CAC for making an impression on my life and on the lives of my boys!"
