Vaccinations protect your pet from several highly contagious diseases such as canine distemper, parvovirus infection and respiratory tract infections. It also protects against transmissible diseases such as rabies that also pose a risk to humans. If you pet would become infected with most of these diseases, which are preventable, debilitating and life-threatening illness occurs, including death and very expensive treatment with long term side effects.
Heartworm in our pets is easy to prevent and costly and possibly deadly to treat. For less than the cost of going to Starbucks for a weekly coffee, you can prevent heartworm disease in your dog. The American Heartworm Society recommends year-round heartworm prevention.
Fleas are annoying and miserable for your pet as well as you. They also carry other diseases that your pet can get sick from.
Dogs are very susceptible to tick bites and tickborne diseases. Vaccines are not available for most of the tickborne diseases that dogs can get, and they don't keep the dogs from bringing ticks into your home. For these reasons, it's important to use a tick preventive product on your dog. Ticks also carry zoonotic diseases, so they can hurt humans too!
Sometimes pets have diseases that can be managed with a prescription diet. We like people to think of this diet as medicine that is being prescribed to treat a disease. It is important to follow your veterinarian’s medical advice when it comes to the proper diet being recommended for specific disease management
By having your dog or cat sterilized, you will do your part to prevent the birth of unwanted puppies and kittens. Spaying and neutering prevent unwanted litters, help protect against some serious health problems, and may reduce many of the behavioral problems associated with the mating instinct.
Discussion with your veterinarian is taken into account for each individual animal when this procedure should occur.
While plaque can be brushed off at home, tartar cannot. Tartar requires veterinary attention. As conditions worsen, pets can suffer from oral pain, abscesses, gum separation, loss of bone that supports teeth, and teeth that are loose and fall out.
