You may have heard of Preventive care many times and were told it was important.
However, what does it really mean to you and your pets?

It is the same for dogs and cats.

The right preventive care is proactive medical care we can provide to your pets to help them stay well and save their lives. It will save your time and money.


One, you can schedule it in advance at your convenience without moving your work schedule.

Two, you can save money by doing preventive screening blood work when your pet is healthy
at almost 50% of the diagnostic blood work at Great Hearts Animal Hospital of Chandler (GHAHC).

I, Dr. Lim, will review the test result with you on the same day before you leave the office.
Was it all normal? We will celebrate it together.
Was there an abnormal result? We will make plans together.

Most of time your pet can get better by adding nutraceutical / dietary supplement and/or diet change and/or a course of antibiotic treatment.

Again, we can help your pet stay well and could save their lives by providing right preventive care at the right time.

What is Preventive Care?
Preventive care includes immunizations, lab tests, screenings and other services intended to prevent illness or detect problems before you notice any symptoms. The right preventive care at the right time can help you stay well and could even save your life.

What is Diagnostic Medical Care?
Diagnostic medical care involves treating or diagnosing a problem you’re having by monitoring existing problems, checking out new symptoms or following up on abnormal test results.
Examples of diagnostic medical care include:
