Wellness Care

The well-being of your family’s best friend is important to us. Our wellness programs help your pet take essential steps towards assuring his or her overall health by taking measures such as biannual preventative check ups.

Wellness Care for Pets

Vaccinations For Dogs

  • DHPP: Prevents distemper, adenovirus (hepatitis), parainfluenza and parvovirus.
  • Leptospirosis: Resists Leptospirosis bacteria, which threatens to cause disease in people.
  • Lyme: This vaccination is very important to consider because our area has one of the worst rates of exposure for Lyme.
  • Bordetella/Kennel Cough: It is highly recommended that this vaccination is administered every 6 months. This disease is extremely contagious and can result in upper respiratory disease and even pneumonia.
  • CIV/Canine Influenza Vaccine:   A severe respiratory infection.  Dogs that frequent dog parks, are kenneled or around other dogs are especially at risk.
  • Rabies: This vaccine is mandatory under the law. Rabies is almost always results in death in animals and humans.

Vaccinations For Cats

  • FVRCP: Protects against the herpes virus, calicivirus, and parvovirus (which can lead to respiratory and GI disease).
  • Feline Leukemia: Recommended for all cats that go outdoors and in some multi-cat households.
  • Rabies: Required by law. Rabies is nearly always fatal in animals and humans.

Heartworm Prevention For Cats And Dogs

Spread by mosquitos, heartworms can cause lung and heart problems and can be life threatening to both canines and felines. We suggest year-round heartworm prevention by giving a monthly medication to both dogs and cats.

Wellness Testing For Cats And Dogs

Intestinal Parasite Testing

Pets can easily be infected by intestinal parasites, a source of disease in not only cats and dogs, but also in the humans who care for them. The four most common parasites affecting pets are hookworms, whipworms, tapeworms, and roundworms.

We are able to identify, treat, and prevent the parasites your pet may encounter by administering fecal testing for parasites biannually. The monthly medication used to resist heartworms also helps to prevent parasites.

Wellness Bloodwork

  • Bloodwork (including Chemistry, CBC, and Thyroid) is vital for evaluating the state of your pet’s internal organs.
  • A complete blood count (CBC) delivers valuable information to identify anemia, infection, blood-borne parasites and abnormal blood cells.
  • A Chemistry Screen assesses several organs, including the kidneys and liver. With a Chem Screen, we examine levels of blood proteins, electrolytes, and glucose to monitor for the onset of diabetes.
  • A Thyroid Screen helps gauge the probability of an underactive or overactive thyroid gland.
