Human medicine is based on the merits of preventive health care. You visit your doctor regularly, even when you are healthy, so that your doctor can check in on your overall health and perform screenings for common diseases. The same applies for your pet's veterinary care.
At Spoon River Animal Clinic, we understand the importance of preventive pet care. Your pet's comprehensive preventive care plan involves annual wellness exams, vaccinations, nutritional counseling, parasite control, blood testing, and more. All of these pieces fit together to keep your pet healthy and detect illness in its early stages, when it can be treated with less difficulty and cost.
You can learn more about our many different wellness services below. Feel free to call us if you have any questions or would like to book an appointment.

If you are concerned about a change in your pet's health or behavior, the best thing to do is schedule an appointment with your veterinarian. Although it may be tempting to search for a diagnosis on the Internet, in most cases only a veterinary clinic has the resources to correctly diagnose your pet. Spoon River Animal Clinic employs a broad range of advanced diagnostic tools to pinpoint medical issues with efficiency and confidence.

Pet Dental Services
Did you know that your pet can suffer from many of the same dental problems as you? When a pet's teeth aren't cleaned, bacteria build up and lead to the formation of plaque and tartar on the teeth. Our veterinarians can provide professional dental cleanings to keep your pet healthy and pain-free.

Senior Pet Care
As they age, pets become more prone to a variety of illnesses, including arthritis, diabetes, gum disease, kidney failure, and cancer. Bringing you pet in for regular wellness visits will help your veterinarian detect problems in their early stages. Even if your pet seems healthy, it is a good idea to have him or her tested regularly, because your veterinarian could detect a condition that has not shown symptoms yet.
