At MONVET Veterinary Group Inc., disease prevention is our main concern. To ensure that your animal is as healthy as he can possibly be and to detect small changes in his physical condition on which we can often intervene before they become real problems, we recommend a visit to his veterinarian at least once a year.
For animals older than 7 years, check-ups should be done every 6 months and a bloodwork should be done also at the same time. This would allow us to verify the state of his internal organs and possibly identify certains diseases frequently observed in older animals.
We invite you to call us to get an appointment with a veterinarian. Our animal health technicians are also available to answer many questions you might have regarding you animal's wellbeing.
Two important ways that are at our disposal to prevent diseases in animals are by vaccinating and deworming them. This is all the more important because many of theses diseases are transmissible to humans !
Vaccination protects your animal against many viral and bacterial diseases. After an initial series of vaccines given at close intervals, boosters are administred on a regular basis throughout his life.
As for deworming, it consists of preventing and treating internal and external parasites such as intestinal worms, heartworm, fleas, ticks and skin and ear mites.
To set up a vaccination and deworming program adapted to your animal's lifestyle, we invite you to make an appointment with one of our veterinarians. That way, not only your pet will be well protected but you will be too !
Like humans, healthy eating habits, exercising every day and keeping a healthy body weight are very important to stay healthy. The same is true for animals.
As animal health professionnals, veterinarians are in a great position to advise owners of companion animals on the type of foods which are best suited to their animals' needs based on their age, their physical condition and their lifestyles.
