An annual physical exam is as important for your pet as it is for you. A thorough physical exam can uncover potential problems in their infancy, before they become serious which helps to improve management and outcomes. Your pet’s annual visit is also a good opportunity to seek advice on such matters as diet, exercise, weight management and grooming.
Vaccinations help to provide immunity and protection against serious contagious canine and feline diseases. Puppies and kittens require a series of 3 inoculations at 8, 12 and 16 weeks of age. As adults, dogs and cats are vaccinated against rabies once every 3 years. Adult dogs are also periodically vaccinated against distemper, hepatitis, parainfluenza, and parvovirus, and adult cats are vaccinated against distemper and two viral respiratory infections. In certain situations it may also be prudent to vaccinate you dog against kennel cough or leptospirosis. Our veterinarians will customize a vaccination protocol to suit your pet’s individual needs.
