Preventative Care

Preventative care is an important factor in keeping your pets happy and healthy! Just like humans, pets are constantly exposed to different infectious diseases that can cause severe illnesses and even death. Taking the right steps in preventing these illnesses and diseases can greatly improve your pet's life for years to come.

We recognize that not all pets have the same lifestyle, share the same environment, or eat the same foods. Therefore, at each visit, the veterinarian will tailor a plan for each pet while minimizing unnecessary intervention.  


Vaccines offered:

  • Canine Distemper/Parvo
  • Rabies
  • Lyme Disease
  • Leptospirosis
  • Bordetella (Kennel Cough)
  • Feline Distemper
  • Feline Leukemia

It is important to monitor your pet after he/she has been vaccinated, as some vaccines can cause mild side effects. Keep an eye out for any signs of lethargy, vomiting, diarrhea, pain, swelling, or itching. Notify your veterinarian if symptoms occur for more than 24 hours.

Routine Testing

Routine blood work allows us to detect signs of illnesses or diseases by monitoring your pet's blood work for abnormalities. Talk with your veterinarian about which tests should be completed during your pet's routine visit.

Routine testing offered:

  • Heartworm/Lyme Disease (4DX)
  • Feline leukemia virus (FeLV)
  • Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV)
  • Intestinal Parasites
  • Fleas and Tick
