Preventive Care

Just as for you and your human family, wellness and preventative care is critical to maintaining good health during juvenile, adult and senior life stages. Establishing a baseline of good health in puppies and kittens via diagnostic testing, proper vaccination and parasite prevention, and then supporting that health throughout your pet’s life is our #1 goal! We all want to enjoy our furry friends as long as possible!

Our vaccine protocols follow the recommendations of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) and the American Association of Feline Practioners (AAFP) of which we are also members. We recommend 3-year canine distemper, adenovirus, parvovirus and rabies vaccines for dogs and 3-year feline rhinotracheitis, calicivirus and panleukopenia and 1-year non-adjuvanted rabies vaccines for cats.

We want to work with you side by side to take care of your beloved pets in the very best way possible.

We can help you achieve this with:

  • Individually tailored vaccine protocols – Every pet is unique, and may have different needs beyond core vaccinations based on lifestyle.
  • Dental care – Both preventative hygiene (think brushing your pet’s teeth, dental chews, and more) as well as regular cleanings. Imagine if you didn’t brush your teeth!
  • Thorough annual physical examination – Together we will identify any concerns and discuss the best way to approach them.
  • Nutritional counseling – Every dog or cat has different nutritional needs, and feeding our pets ideally can be a confusing topic. We can help you find a good diet that suits your budget.
  • Parasite prevention and control – Fleas, ticks and mosquitoes are annoying and cause skin problems, as well as carry diseases. We can help you navigate the man prevention products on the market to select something safe and effective. Intestinal parasites and heartworm disease are preventable. Some of these illnesses can infect humans as well!
  • Life stage targeted bloodwork – We can guide you in deciding what bloodwork your dog or cat needs based on age and other factors, such as illness.

With the advent of better vaccinations that last longer than a year, it is easy to forget that prevention of disease and maintenance of health goes far beyond vaccinations.

Our comprehensive reminder system will help you stay on track!
