Goodfriends Veterinary Clinic offers a wide range of veterinary services. We strive to provide excellent care, by advocating for the importance of wellness and preventative care for your pets! While vaccinations are extremely important, your pet’s annual exam is much more than this. It is an opportunity to provide a full wellness exam on your pet, and to discuss preventative care measures such as heartworm prevention, tick prevention, flea prevention, intestinal parasite prevention, nutrition, dental care, behavior and much more.
We recommend annual fecal tests for all dogs to screen for intestinal parasites, as well as an annual heartworm and tick test. East Lyme and surrounding areas has a strong prevalence of Lyme disease, Anaplasmosis, and Ehrlichia tick-borne diseases. Heartworm disease in dogs, spread by mosquitos, is also a concern and can be fatal if left untreated. Thus, why heartworm, flea and tick prevention in dogs is so important! And let’s not forget out our feline friends – Feline Heartworm disease is also a concern for cats and prevention is very important!
