Vaccinations for your animal
Vaccinations prevent a host of diseases and illnesses from affecting your pets. Rabies vaccines are the most common and most essential. Some vaccines, like rabies shots, are considered core vaccines which means all pets need them. Some vaccines are dependent on what your pet is exposed to or what their risks are, and our veterinarian can help you make the best choices for your dog or cat.
There are medications that will repel fleas and ticks, which are always out there and ready to attach themselves to your pet. This could be considered a vaccination in a sense. It does not take much outside exposure to put your pet in a vulnerable position with fleas and ticks, so using medicines that repel them is the best practice. For dogs, there is also the concern of heartworm, and all dogs should be on heartworm medication to make sure they don't get this deadly condition. Worms are another parasite that can be treated relatively easily by your veterinarian at our animal clinic.
Veterinary Wellness Exam
Our veterinarian recommends a yearly physical examination to keep your pet in good health. This is a good time to get vaccinations as well. During a physical exam, your pet's vital signs will be taken, such as temperature, weight, and so forth. The veterinarian will also examine the pet from nose to tail to make sure everything is as it should be. Often signs of an issue can be spotted early and can be treated. Preventative care can often help avoid further illness and more expensive treatment. Our animal hospital also keeps a history of your pet, and that is valuable for keeping track of health issues as the pet ages.
