Preventative Care

As members of your family, pets need the same kind of routine preventative care as their owners. With the right examinations, testing and vaccinations, your pet can enjoy a healthier, happier life. That’s why Breckinridge Park Animal Hospital offers:

Richardson Veterinarians PuppiesPuppy and Kitten Wellness Care

Give your puppy or kitten a healthy start with our all inclusive checklist. We offer an easy-to-follow outline to help your new furry family member keep on track.

Junior and Senior Wellness Care

Our patients cannot always tell us when they are ill; that’s why blood testing can be so important in revealing the overall health of your pets. We offer an easy-to-follow outline to help you and your beloved stay up to date on important testing from year to year.


Vaccinations are very important, but they should be tailored to the specific needs of each patient. At Breckinridge Park Animal Hospital, we recommend that cats and dogs receive core vaccines every three years. All other vaccines are administered according to the pet’s individual potential for exposure.  We also offer vaccine titer testing for patients with conditions preventing vaccination.

Richardson Veterinarians Cat with BowHeartworm, flea and tick prevention

There are several safe and effective medications available on the market today to keep our pets healthy. Choosing which medication is right for your pet depends upon their specific needs. Please call or email us to discuss which preventative is best for your pet. Don’t forget that cats need heartworm prevention, too!

Microchip identification

Few things are more heartbreaking than not finding a lost pet. With a microchip, it is much more likely you can be reunited with your pets if they become lost.
