Does My Pet Need Vaccinations?

Yes. Pets need vaccines because they can contract different illnesses in various ways. They can be infected by another pet or a bite from mosquitos, fleas, or ticks, just to name a few common ways pets get sick. That’s why we provide extensive wellness plans tailor-made for each patient and their lifestyle. This includes annual examinations, vaccinations, parasite and infectious disease screening, and bloodwork.

Parasites and Infectious Disease Screening

Our pets can’t tell us when they feel sick, which is why preventive care is essential to protect their health. Cats and dogs face various health hurdles and our team carefully examines them to diagnose any health issues early to provide effective treatment. We love animals and are committed to providing a robust range of services to keep your pet healthy so you can make a lifetime of memories with them. Here are some of our parasite and infectious disease screenings for cats and dogs:

  • Intestinal Parasite Exam: This test allows us to screen your pet’s fecal material for intestinal worms that may be present in your cat or dog. Intestinal parasites may cause diarrhea, weight loss, changes in their coat, or vomiting. This process allows us to identify and properly treat and eradicate intestinal worms.
  • Heartworm, Lyme, Ehrlichia, and Anaplasmosis Screening Test: This test for dogs requires only a few drops of blood and allows us to check for heartworm disease and three major infectious diseases that are spread by ticks.
  • Feline Leukemia Virus and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus: This test for cats requires a small blood sample and allows us to check for these autoimmune-suppressing diseases that can create lifelong health issues for your cat.

Cat and Dog Vaccinations

Vaccines for cats and dogs are an important part of protecting our pets from disease, and it’s one of our greatest tools for disease prevention. We understand that you do everything you can to keep your pet safe and healthy, and maintaining their vaccinations is an active way to safeguard them from various diseases. Our doctors will take the time to ask questions about you and your pet and craft a custom vaccine plan that fits your pet’s lifestyle to help protect them from diseases they may encounter. Here are some of the vaccines we offer for dogs:

  • DHPP (distemper, adenovirus, parainfluenza, parvovirus)
  • Leptospirosis
  • Lyme
  • Bordetella (Kennel Cough)
  • Canine Influenza
  • Rabies

Cats are equally susceptible to disease, regardless of whether they’re indoors, outdoors, or both. Here are some of the vaccines for cats our team offers:

  • FVRCP (rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, panleukopenia)
  • Feline Leukemia
  • Rabies

Annual and Biannual Wellness Exams

We are passionate about providing quality, reliable care for your pet. That’s why we offer annual and biannual wellness exams for cats and dogs. Every pet is unique and deserves personalized care, which is why we carefully perform a nose-to-tail check and run bloodwork to determine your pet’s overall health. We check the health of their coat, the mobility of their joints, and their ears for mites. If we discover an illness that requires additional care, we’ll discuss their treatment options and work with you to create a treatment plan that fits your pet’s needs and your schedule.

Our team of veterinarians believe that open discussion is key to building a professional and trusting relationship you can rely on. That’s why we discuss the findings of the exam, the treatment options available and the results you can expect. We know your furry friend is close to your heart, and we want you to have the information and resources you need to make confident decisions that keep your cat or dog healthy for years.

Pet Wellness Care and Vaccination FAQs

Selecting the treatments that are right for your pet can feel like a complex matter, and it’s natural to have questions. That’s why we encourage you to share your questions and concerns. We are happy to provide the answers and resources you need to make an informed decision regarding your pet’s treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about wellness care and vaccines for dogs and cats:

When should I bring my puppy or kitten in for vaccinations?

This depends on the age and breed of your pet. However, most kittens and puppies get their first round of vaccines at six weeks old. If you’re not sure, ask our friendly vet and they’ll provide helpful insight into your pet’s specific needs.

Are there physical symptoms of parasites in my pet?

Pets naturally hide when they don’t feel good, but if you notice a change in your pet’s appetite or coat or they’ve become irritable, it’s best to bring them in for a checkup.

How can I protect my pet from fleas and ticks?

There are a variety of options to protect your pet from fleas and ticks, including topical gels, flea collars, and more. Talk with our vet about where your pet likes to play and whether you live in a rural or urban area, and our vet will recommend a solution to protect your dog or cat from fleas and ticks.
