Wellness & Preventative Care

We offer a proactive approach to health care, where treatment focuses on disease prevention and optimization of health. Preventative care can help pets live a longer, healthier life and reduce the long-term costs of veterinary services. Our veterinarians will perform an evaluation of your pet’s overall health and risks of disease or other health problems. Based on their findings, they will provide you with treatments and recommendations for your pet, including dental care, vaccinations, flea/heartworm/tick prevention, as well as other courses of action specifically tailored for the health needs of your animal. Other Services include, but are not limited to: wellness exams, vaccinations, parasite control, dental and oral health evaluations and treatment, spay and neuter, elective surgery, puppy check ups, and senior animal care.

When it comes to your animal’s health, preventative care is the best means of ensuring that they live long, happy, and healthy lives. Preventative care involves a multifaceted approach to animal health that includes routine examinations, where your veterinarian will perform an evaluation of your pet’s overall health and risks of disease or other health problems. Based on their findings, your pet health care specialist will provide you with treatments and recommendations for your pet, including dental care, vaccinations, flea/heartworm/tick prevention, as well as other courses of action specifically tailored for the health needs of your animal.


Clean teeth and a healthy mouth are just as important for animals as they are for humans. Oral health is often indicative of overall health, and tooth decay, plaque and tartar build-up can cause a number of serious conditions, such as periodontal disease. These kinds of health complications can lead to various other health issues and diseases.

When it comes to your animal’s oral health, prevention is key. Before your pet receives a dental cleaning, they will receive a physical examination. During dental procedures, our knowledgeable staff will be on-hand, overseeing all aspects of the process. Our goal is to provide your pet with the highest standard of treatment and care.

Diagnostic Testing

If your pet is dealing with a specific yet unspecified health condition or problem, our skilled veterinary team is here to help. Our hospital offers comprehensive diagnostic testing, including routine exams, blood work and laboratory facilities.


Microchipping is a simple, painless procedure in which a small chip is placed under the animal’s skin. The chip has a unique number on it that cab be read by any universal scanner at any shelter, rescue facility or veterinarian’s office.

The experienced staff at Bear Creek Animal Hospital provides microchipping services. This simple procedure can also be done with different animals, including horses, ferrets, and a number of other mammals.


Watching an ailing pet suffer is never easy. When your animal’s quality of life has decreased dramatically, it is undoubtedly a difficult decision to end their suffering. The compassionate and caring team of veterinarians at Bear Creek Animal Hospital will approach the topic with understanding and sensitivity. While the decision is indeed difficult, euthanasia can be one of the most humane things you can do for your animal’s well being.
