Routine deworming and vaccines are basic, but important aspects of preventative care. By taking a prophylactic approach to your pet’s health, you can give them the best chance of staying healthy throughout the year.
Parasites that are common to our area include ear mites, giardia, roundworms, hookworms and tapeworms. Most can be detected via a simple parasite screening of your pet’s stool sample. It’s important to stay on top of parasite prevention because many are zoonotic—meaning they can be transmitted directly or indirectly from pets to people.
Vaccines are an important way of preventing infectious diseases from afflicting your pet. Currently, we offer a full line of canine and feline vaccinations, as well as a limited line of vaccines for ferrets, pigs, goats, sheep and cows. We recommend starting vaccinations at 8 weeks of age for puppies and kittens, and invite you to give us call if you need information about the recommended schedule for other species.
