Wellness and Vaccination Programs

We believe in taking a preventive approach to your pet's health and well being. It is much easier to prevent disease than to treat your pet after it becomes ill. Regular physical exams allow the veterinarian to detect changes before they elevate to severe health problems. Pets age much quicker than humans, therefore an annual checkup is similar to a person visiting their family doctor every four years. We also believe in the importance of blood and urine screening tests. Animals have a natural instinct to disguise signs of pain and illness. In the wild, sick animals are easy prey and this mentality has carried through in the domestication process. This often makes it difficult to tell if your pet is sick. By doing bloodwork and urinalysis we can detect changes to organs such as the liver and kidneys before there are any physical signs of illness. After examining your pet and asking you questions about his or her health and environment, our veterinarian can recommend a vaccine and health care protocol that will best suit your pets needs. We also have a number of annual wellness plans available as outlined in the next screens. For more information on any of these packages please call our office.

Puppy Wellness

By |

Congratulations on your new puppy! Thank you for choosing us to help protect and care for your new addition to your family.

Our puppy wellness program is designed to help get your puppy started on the right path to a long and healthy life. The first few months are a critical period in your puppy’s development, and we can give you the support and tools necessary to help him or her grow into a well-mannered, healthy dog, including information and advice on nutrition, training, behaviour, and socialization.

Schedule your puppy for his or her first exam as soon as possible. Until your puppy has received a series of vaccines, he or she is susceptible to many serious but preventable diseases. We generally vaccinate all dogs against rabies, distemper, hepatitis, parainfluenza and parvovirus. We will also assess your risk factors for bordatella and leptospirosis and vaccinate for these if appropriate. Your puppy will also need to be tested and treated for parasites, which are common in young dogs.

Most puppies have roundworms, which are intestinal worms that can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and other gastrointestinal signs (although dogs can have worms without showing any symptoms). It is important for puppies to be treated for roundworms, not only to rid them of the infection but also to prevent you and the rest of your family from becoming infected. Roundworms are a zoonotic parasite, which means they can be transmitted from pets to people. By ensuring that your puppy is treated, you can keep your entire family safe from these and other parasites.

 

We look forward to meeting your new puppy! Schedule your appointment today.

Congratulations on your new kitten! Thank you for choosing us to help protect and care for your new addition to your family.

Our kitten wellness program is designed to help get your kitten started on the right path to a long and healthy life. The first few months are a critical period in your kitten’s development, and we can give you the support and tools necessary to help him or her grow into a well-mannered, healthy cat, including information and advice on nutrition, litterbox training, and behaviour.

Schedule your kitten for his or her first exam as soon as possible. Until your kitten has received a series of vaccines, he or she is susceptible to many serious but preventable diseases. We will vaccinate your new pet against Rabies, Rhinothracheitis, Calici and Panleukopenia (FVRCP). Depending on your cat’s risk, we may also advise vaccinating him or her against feline leukemia virus (FeLV). In addition, your kitten will need to be tested and treated for parasites, which are common in young cats.

Most kittens have roundworms, which are intestinal worms that can cause coughing, weight loss, and a potbellied appearance in cats (although they may not cause any symptoms). It is important for kittens to be treated for roundworms, not only to help rid them of the infection but also to prevent you and the rest of your family from becoming infected. Roundworms are a zoonotic parasite, which means they can be transmitted from pets to people. By ensuring that your kitten is treated, you can keep your entire family safe.

We look forward to meeting your new kitten! Schedule your appointment today.

Adult Pet Wellness

Bringing your pet in for an annual diagnostic and wellness checkup can help reassure you that your dog or cat is healthy or help us detect hidden diseases or conditions early. Early detection can improve the prognosis of many diseases, keep medical costs down, and help your pet live longer. Many dogs and cats are good at hiding signs that something is wrong, so subtle changes in their health or behaviour might be easy to overlook. And, depending on the disease, some pets don’t show any symptoms.

Dogs and cats age quicker than humans, so it is even more crucial for our companion animals to receive regular exams. In addition, the risks of arthritis, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, hormone disorders, and kidney and liver problems all increase with age.

During your pet’s wellness exam, we will perform a physical assessment, checking your dog or cat from nose to tail. We will also make sure your pet receives appropriate vaccinations and preventives. We will perform a diagnostic workup, which may include blood, faecal, and urine tests to check for parasites and underlying diseases. We may also recommend that your pet receive dental care.

When your pet is nearing his or her senior years, we will recommend a baseline exam and diagnostic workup so we’ll know what’s normal for your pet. This will enable us to keep track of any changes.

We offer a variety of packages that incorporate the fundamentals of preventive health care for all ages and a monthly payment option that makes budgeting simple!
