Dogs and Cats have a relatively short life-span and should be examined by a veterinarian every six months for optimal care. Medical conditions and the pet’s health status can change quickly over just a few months, and a veterinarian can identify disease when often it will go unnoticed by the owner.
For dogs we recommend annual vaccinations including a one-year Rabies inoculation with DHLPP, and Bordetella boosters. We also recommend Fecal Flotation and Heartworm testing as well as monthly Heartworm Prevention products. Influenza is a seasonal disease for canines, just as it is for people, but annual vaccination, regardless of time of year given, can help protect your pet from this respiratory illness. Lymes vaccine is recommended for dogs exposed to ticks. Snake vaccine is a must for outdoor and farm dogs.
For cats we recommend one year Rabies, FVRCP, Feline Leukemia, and Fecal Flotation testing for intestinal worms. We offer FIP intranasal vaccine to protect against Feline Infectious Peritonitis. Heartworms are getting more prevalent in cats so we recommend heartworm testing annually and heartworm prevention once monthly products.
