Disease Prevention: Vaccinations, Parasitic Deworming
Vaccinations are an important factor in your pet’s preventative health care plan. We create vaccine protocols for your pet that revolve around their unique lifestyle and risk factors, as well as community regulations.
One full year after the puppy vaccination series is completed, we recommend yearly vaccinations of leptospira (a bacterial infection), bordetella (kennel cough), and borrelia (Lyme disease) as needed. We also recommend vaccinations of rabies and DHPP (distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus, and parainfluenza) every 3 years.
One full year after the kitten vaccination series is completed, we recommend yearly vaccinations of FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus) as needed. We recommend vaccinations of rabies and FVRCP (Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis) every 3 years.
If you have any questions about what sort of vaccination protocol is right for your pet, please ask a staff member or veterinarian.
Parasites can go from being an inconvenience to seriously damaging your pet’s health. Internal parasites (hookworms, heartworms, and roundworms) and external parasites (ticks and fleas) are common in pets. Some of these parasites can go from your pet to you or your family (zoonotic).
To stop parasites from harming your pets and family, prevention is necessary. We recommend routine exams and laboratory testing to screen for parasites. We carry many of the leading medications and preventative medicines, on-hand and available at our practice. We will help you determine which product will work best for your pet.
