Vaccines help protect your pet from various diseases and keep them happy and healthy. Vaccines are recommended annually for most pets. Puppies and kittens receive vaccines starting as young as 6 weeks old, then receive boosters until they’re 3 months old. Vaccines are split into two categories: core and non-core. Core vaccines are recommended for every pet, every 1 or 3 years. Non-core vaccines are recommended for pets depending on lifestyle and exposure risk.
Most pets can eat standard food bought at the store or online, but some pets require a prescription based diet due to medical conditions concerning the urinary tract, kidney, skin/food sensitivities, and weight management. Your pet’s doctor will be able to consult with you regarding food choices, prescription requests, and feeding instructions.
Pets develop behavior issues for several different reasons and it can be very hard to interpret what their actions mean. Our expert doctors provide consults on your pet’s behavior to provide answers on what may be causing it and how to improve.
We offer health certificates for domestic and international travel. Book your appointment in advance as the requirements differ from each country and could require extra time for planning. It’s important to check with your airline to see its requirements for pet travel.
Flea and Tick Prevention
Depending on the exposure risk, your pet may need to be on monthly flea and tick prevention. Fleas and ticks feed off the blood of animals and humans. Fleas can be extremely uncomfortable for your pet and can be life-threatening in puppies and kittens when untreated. Ticks can cause the same issues with your pets as fleas, but certain breeds of ticks carry Lyme disease. Speak with the veterinarian to discuss the best options for your pet.
Just like us, our pets need to visit the doctor once a year to ensure they are healthy. Annual checkups often include exam, vaccinations, and routine lab work. Your doctor will discuss your pet’s health with you and give their expert recommendations based on lifestyle, age, and breed of your pet.
Puppy & Kitten Exams
Congratulations on the new addition to your family! One of the most important responsibilities of having a puppy or kitten is making sure they are healthy. Puppies and kittens are most susceptible to diseases and parasites so it’s important to get them properly vaccinated and tested for parasites. We offer head to tail physical exams, initial and booster vaccines, parasite checks, deworming, behavior and feeding recommendations.
