Regular wellness exams are vital for your pet’s overall health. Our experienced veterinarians conduct thorough assessments, focusing on early detection and prevention.

Why Regular Checkups are Important

Regular checkups safeguard your pet’s health and longevity. Pets, like humans, can develop hidden health issues. Early detection during vet visits allows prompt treatment, minimizing costs. These appointments also foster open communication, enabling tailored preventive care discussions including vaccinations, parasite control, and nutrition.

Core vaccines are vital for safeguarding pets against highly contagious and life-threatening diseases. These include rabies, distemper, parvovirus, and adenovirus for dogs, and rabies, feline herpesvirus, calicivirus, and panleukopenia for cats.

Optional Vaccines

Optional vaccines provide additional protection based on lifestyle and risk factors. These may include Bordetella, leptospirosis, and Lyme disease for dogs, and feline leukemia virus (FeLV) and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) for cats. We tailor optional vaccinations to your pet’s specific needs, ensuring comprehensive protection.

When is it the Best Age to Vaccinate a Cat or Dog?

Determining the ideal age for vaccinating your pet involves various factors such as species, breed, and health status. Typically, vaccinations begin during early puppyhood or kittenhood, around six to eight weeks of age, with booster shots administered every few weeks until about 16 weeks old. These initial vaccinations provide crucial protection against common diseases and establish a strong immune foundation. As pets age, their vaccination needs evolve, with some vaccines requiring periodic boosters. Core vaccines include those for distemper, parvovirus, adenovirus, and rabies, while optional vaccines may be recommended based on lifestyle and exposure risk. For adult pets, boosters are usually given annually or every three years, with rabies vaccinations often required by law. Senior pets may have adjusted vaccination schedules based on individual health and lifestyle considerations, determined in consultation with a veterinarian. Regular veterinary checkups help ensure pets receive appropriate vaccinations throughout their lives.
