Potter Pet University presents “Oh, for Pet’s Sake!: What Is Preventive Care & Why Does My Pet Need It?”

Presented by Dr. Amelia Sikora, DVM, Director of Shelter Medicine, Potter League for Animals

Why is routine preventative care for your pet essential? Preventative care for your pet is critical to maintaining their overall health and avoiding unwanted and even life-threatening illness. In most cases, preventative care requires a routine visit to your vet to complete a wellness exam, get needed vaccinations, treat or test for potential parasites, and receive prescription medications.

It’s easy to skip a year, especially when you face challenges in scheduling your pet’s appointment. Veterinarians across the country are still managing an increase in demand for services while trying to meet that demand with fewer staff. Remember the old adage, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure?” Those wise words directly relate to the healthcare of our pets. Avoiding illness is always better than treating it, so join us as Dr. Sikora explores and explains all the ways to “prevent” rather than “cure.”

Humans only, please! Free and open to the public.
