At Gluckstadt Animal Hospital, we focus on preventive care to keep common diseases and disorders from negatively impacting your pet's health.
When combined with annual wellness exams, pet vaccinations and parasite prevention form the foundation of your animal's routine healthcare.
Preventive care provides your pet with their very best chance at a long, healthy life. Our team will work with you to create a custom preventive care plan tailored to meet your cat or dog's their unique needs.
Up-to-date dog and cat vaccinations are essential when it comes to protecting your four-legged friend against a range of contagious, often serious, conditions.
Having your pet spayed or neutered not only prevents the birth of unwanted litters; these common veterinary surgeries can also help to protect your pet against some serious forms of cancer. Spays and neuters can also curb undesirable behaviors such as howling, scooting, roaming, and animal aggression.

Parasites pose a serious health threat to people and animals in the Madison area. Left untreated, parasites can threaten the life of your cat or dog, and in some cases can even be transmitted to people or other pets living in your home. The parasite prevention products offered by our Madison vets can help protect your pet from the following common parasites:
Fleas are external parasites that feed on the blood of birds and mammals. Left untreated, fleas can quickly spread throughout your household.
These external parasites consume the blood of mammals and are responsible for the spread of a number of serious conditions in people and pets.
Tiny, highly contagious ear mites reside in the ear canals of dogs, cats and other mammals. These parasites reproduce continuously throughout their lifespan.
This thread-like parasitic roundworm is spread through mosquito bites and makes its home in the heart, lungs and blood vessels of infected animals.
These parasites live in the digestive tract of cats and dogs where they feed on the pet's blood. Hookworms can lead to anemia and other serious conditions.
This parasitic worm lives in the intestine and feeds on partially digested intestinal contents. This parasite can rob your pet of vital nutrients necessary to stay healthy.
Tapeworms are spread through the ingestion of infected fleas during grooming. These hook-like parasitic worms live and grow in your pet's intestines.
Whipworms are spread through the ingestion of soil that has been in contact with an infected dog's feces. Whipworms pose a serious health risk to dogs.
