Why Pets Need Annual Exams
Pet exams, like human exams, are necessary for setting a baseline, screening for illness, and keeping track of their condition year after year. It’s important to remember that dogs and cats age much faster than humans, which means that their health can change seemingly overnight. If we don’t see your pet for 2 or 3 years, this is more than enough time for an illness or infection to progress and become much harder to treat.
Cat and Dog Vaccinations
We generally recommend that every pet be vaccinated to keep them safe from life-threatening illness. Our animal hospital offers a full range of vaccines designed to safely build up your pet’s immunity to rabies, distemper, parvo, and other diseases. To find out which vaccines your pet needs and how frequently, be sure to get in contact with us!
Regardless of lifestyle, every pet is at risk for infestation and/or infection from parasites. The most common parasite threats to dogs and cats include:
Even during the winter months, it only takes one unseasonably warm day for some of these pests to become active again. Therefore, we recommend year-round parasite prevention to protect your pet against infestations and many parasitic diseases. Heartworm disease and Lyme disease are especially harmful, so make sure your pet never misses a dose of preventative.
