Wellness & Vaccinations
Pets can't always indicate when they don't feel well, and that's why regular exams are a cornerstone to lifelong good health. Immunizations are a key to preventing diseases that would otherwise be devastating. Our doctors don't believe in unneeded vaccinations, however, so they will discuss your lifestyle and your pet's risks with you before recommending the immunizations your pet needs. Preventatives are essential for keeping parasites at bay; there are many choices out there, and our doctors will recommend the safest and most effective for your pet. Baseline blood tests and other tests (especially as your pet ages) are very helpful at detecting changes early. Regular dental cleanings are important for maintaining your pet's overall health; poor dental conditions can lead not only to mouth pain and tooth loss, but also to disease of the heart, kidney, and liver.
