Wellness Care 

 

Prevention is the best medicine. We've heard that before, but with all the products and services out there, things can get confusing. What vaccines are right for your dog or cat? What products do we recommend for fleas, ticks, and heartworm? 

 

 

  

Wellness Care for your Dog

 

ONE WELLNESS VISIT ONCE A YEAR

We want to examine your dog every year and run a blood test that checks for HeartwormLyme DiseaseAnaplasma and Ehrlichia. (click on links for more information). We recommend monthly Heartworm prevention prevention, and flea and tick prevention as well. We currently sell K9 Advantix IINexgard, and Seresto collars. We would also like to check your dog's feces for parasites. We administer vaccines (see below) based on your dog's risk for each disease and provide a comprehensive medical exam. 

 

We consider dogs to be seniors at 7 years of age. We recommend performing a "senior wellness" blood panel. This will check your dog for many age-related diseases like kidney disease, hypothyroidism, diabetes mellitus, liver disease and many other issues that we can't identify on a routine exam.
