The Importance of Veterinary Services

Pets, just like people, require regular check-ups with their doctors, often known as proper veterinary care. Several problems can be detected early and treated before they grow into larger, more serious ones by seeing the veterinarian regularly. It's also crucial to keep an eye on your pet's health to ensure that they are as active and healthy as possible. Below are some essential services that regular veterinary care may provide for your pet.


Heartworm treatment

The heartworm infection can be easily transmitted from one animal to another. It's caused by a parasitic worm spread through mosquito bites. This infection can remain inactive in the animal's body for up to 6 months. Unfortunately, it is often impossible to detect it if your pet is not getting constant veterinary care. Regular veterinary exams can help detect it at the early stages.



Every pet owner desires for their pet to be attractive. However, when it comes to regular grooming, most people overlook the aspect of routine veterinarian treatment. From a clean, tangle-free coat for skin health to trimmed nails and teeth, grooming contributes to your pet's general health.



Preventing your pets from catching and spreading diseases is one of the most important things you can do. Vaccinations can help protect them from serious illnesses such as parvo, distemper, and rabies.



Protecting your pet friend's general health requires regular dental care. Proper dental care prevents bad breath and aids in the treatment of a range of diseases. It's crucial for pet owners to understand that infections that start in the mouth can readily reach your animal's bloodstream and spread to critical organs.


Routine pet checkup

Kato Animal Hospital also offers routine pet checkup services. Our experienced veterinarians perform comprehensive physical examinations and health assessments to identify any potential health concerns or underlying medical conditions that may require treatment. They also provide vaccinations, parasite prevention, and nutritional counselling to maintain good pet health and prevent illnesses. Our state-of-the-art equipment and advanced diagnostic capabilities enable our veterinarians to provide accurate and timely diagnoses. Our caring and compassionate approach to pet care ensures that pets receive great attention and support during their visits. Reach out to us for routine checkup services for your pet.  We help your pets stay healthy and happy throughout their lives.

Veterinary Services | FAQ

Below are the most frequently asked questions about pet health:


Can My Pet See the Same Veterinarian Every Time While Visiting?

Please remember that while we will try our best to make your appointment with your chosen veterinarian, there could be situations that restrict a specific veterinary team member from becoming available at the time of your pet's visit. When booking your appointment, don't hesitate to request a specific veterinarian, and we will try our best to accommodate your request.


What Would Be the Cost of Visiting a Veterinarian?

Fees are due at the time of treatment, just like they are at many other professional facilities you attend. The best approach is to contact ahead and ask about alternate payment options with your veterinary hospital. The hospital staff will be pleased to explain the facility's payment policies to you or offer alternatives for outside financing.
