HEALTH WATCH: your dog ate what?!


  • When does a puppy or kitten start it's vaccinations?

    We recommend starting vaccinations at 8 weeks of age. We give them in a series 4 weeks apart so that your pet will have good immunity. A puppy or kitten would receive vaccinations at 8, 12, and 16. We give Rabies vaccinations at the time of your pet's 16 week vaccination. Vaccination boosters are done yearly with Rabies being every 3 years (dogs only) after the initial year booster.
  • Should I do a routine deworming on my pets?

    We recommend routine deworming and heartworm prevention year round. If you don't want to medicate your pet without knowing that she has worms we can do 3 consecutive fecal samples to prove whether or not she needs deworming.
  • What are heartworms and how can I protect my dog from getting them?

    Check out the heartworm page under Resources!
  • My cat stays inside all the time, does it need vaccinations?

    If you ever have a personal emergency where you have to board your cat or a medical emergency where your cat must be hospitalized, the unvaccinated cat will be vulnerable to any of the feline diseases. It may be even more susceptible than other cats since it has never been exposed to any type of disease. You can also unknowingly bring some viruses home on your clothing from a stray or other sick cat.
