At Mt. McKinley Animal Hospital we believe that preventative care is the foundation for a healthy, happy, long-lived pet. Pets age faster than people and most pets are mature by age two. Many diseases are treatable if caught before irreversible changes have occurred. Therefore we recommend annual or twice annual physical examinations to help us diagnose, treat or prevent problems before they become life-threatening. During these examinations we will discuss and administer immunizations, internal and external parasite treatment and prevention, blood and urine tests and other measures to ensure prevention and early detection of disease.
