Wellness and Preventative Care

Wellness visits for pets play a crucial role in maintaining their overall health and well-being. These regular check-ups provide an opportunity for veterinarians to assess a pet's physical condition, catch any potential health issues early, and offer preventive care measures. Through physical examinations, vaccinations, and discussions with pet owners about diet, exercise, and behavioral concerns, wellness visits help ensure that pets receive the necessary care to live long, happy lives. Detecting and addressing health issues in their early stages can significantly increase the chances of successful treatment and reduce the financial and emotional burdens associated with more advanced illnesses. Moreover, wellness visits strengthen the bond between pets and their owners by emphasizing responsible pet ownership and showing pets that their comfort and health are a top priority.

Recommended Vaccinations

  • CORE Canine Vaccines: Rabies, DHPP, Leptospirosis, and Bordetella
  • Canine Lifestyle Vaccines: Lyme and Influenza
  • CORE Feline Vaccines: Rabies, RCP, and FeLV

**All vaccine recommendations should be discussed with your veterinarian to tailor them to your pet's specific needs.**

Vaccinating your pet is a crucial responsibility that not only safeguards their individual health but also contributes to the overall well-being of all the animals in our community. Vaccinations provide effective protection against a range of potentially life-threatening diseases that can spread rapidly among pets. By adhering to a recommended vaccination schedule, you not only shield your beloved companion from illness but also prevent the transmission of diseases to other animals and even to humans.

  • Heartworm: Interceptor Plus, ProHeart12, Revolution, and Revolution Plus
  • Flea and Tick: Simparica, Bravecto, Credelio, Seresto Collars, Revolution, Revolution Plus, and Frontline Gold

Parasites such as fleas, ticks, heartworms, and intestinal worms not only cause discomfort and health issues in pets but can also spread to humans, posing a potential risk to our families. By consistently providing appropriate preventative measures, pet owners take a proactive stance against the potential transmission of these parasites. Regular prevention helps mitigate the physical discomfort, potential infections, and expensive medical treatments associated with parasitic infestations.
