One of the most important factors in keeping our pets healthy is preventing problems before they can occur. Here are a few easy things that can help keep them safe.
Flea and Tick Control
Fleas and ticks can not only make your pets uncomfortable and anxious but they can also spread serious disease. Ticks can attach and cause problems in colder months as well as warm ones and fleas can live inside on unprotected pets. We recommend year round prevention and can help you choose the product that is right for your pet..
Intestinal parasites like hookworms, roundworms, tapeworms and Giardia can be a concern for pets at any age but especially for puppies and kittens. Our hospital offers fecal analysis that allow us to identify these parasites and treat you pet appropriately.
Preventive care and prescription heartworm medication are key, because of the damages presented by intestinal parasites to both pets and people. Our primary focus is to provide your pet with the safest and most effective ongoing preventive care.
Vaccinations are important for the health and protection of your pet and can keep them safe from viral and bacterial diseases including: Rabies, Distemper, Adenovirus, Leptospirosis, Parvovirus, Parainfluenza Virus, Feline Leukemia Virus, Panleukopenia and Rhinotracheitis. Before giving any vaccinations our veterinarians consult with you and examine your pet to make sure they are healthy and stable enough to receive them.
Vaccinations are particularly important to young animals that have immature immune systems. They generally begin at 6-8 weeks of age and are given every three to four weeks until the series is completed.
