Vaccinations

Many Veterinarians only see pets for puppy/ kitten exams and legally mandated immunizations. What many pet owners fail to realize is that modern veterinary science has provided tools that enable veterinarians to diagnose and treat a whole range of conditions that were previously considered to be simply declining health due to old age, with euthanasia being the only humane solution. Comprehensive Exams: A physical exam is one of the best tools available to keep your pet healthy. With regular veterinary checkups (we recommend semi-annual) and early treatment, yesterday’s old age for a pet is now the new pet middle age, with more years of good health and activity ahead for your pet to spend together you

If your pet is due for "shots", they can be administered duringyour pet's twice-yearly examinations. We use only the highest quality vaccines that are intended to be "non-reactive" and not cause anaphylaxis (allergic reaction).   However, we still prefer not to give more than one vaccine at a visit if possible.  Our current protocol after the puppy/kitten series is to give annual DHPP for dogs, FVRCP for cats, and alternate the Rabies and Bordetella or other elective vaccines.  We follow a three-year vaccination protocol starting at 4 years of age, since we do not believe in overvaccination. We will complete a lifestyle disease risk assessment form prior to administering any vaccinations to ensure that we are creating a specific vaccine plan customized to the needs of you and your pet.  We are certain that you will find twice-yearly veterinary wellness exams for your pet to be a good investment in terms of money saved over the long run and, more importantly, in the longer and healthier life your pet can enjoy with you.
