The old adage, "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" certainly holds true when it comes to pet health. The cost of prevention is often a fraction of the cost of treating a disease or problem once it has become more advanced.  If you can detect a problem in its early stages, it's more likely to be treated and resolved with less expense, less difficulty, and better success. Some examples of the preventative measures taken at Blue Sky clinic of Bend include: Cat and Dog vaccinations, pet exams, dental services, deworming and more.

Puppies and kittens should have three visits for vaccines at our Bend veterinary clinic (3-4 weeks apart) between the ages of 8 weeks and 16 weeks of age.

Annual wellness exams are recommended for all adult dogs and cats even if you feel there are no concerns.

Semi-annual exams are recommended for all pets over the age of 10 or pets currently undergoing treatment for a pre-existing disease.

Vaccinations, dental care, arthritis management, weight management, heartworm prevention and routine deworming are offered by our Bend vet clinic for dogs, cats and other small animals. These pet exams and treatments are important components of wellness care and can prevent diseases that are not only life-threatening but expensive to treat in the later stages.
