Wellness Exams


Annual wellness exams form the foundation of your pet’s care. Every pet is different, and regular checkups provide a valuable opportunity for us to get to know and understand your pet’s individual needs.

Vaccines


At your pet’s checkup, we will discuss your pet’s risk factors and administer appropriate vaccines.

Core vaccines for cats:

  • Rabies (mandated by law)
  • FVRCP: Prevents rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, panleukopenia
  • FeLV: Prevents feline leukemia (for outdoor cats or cats otherwise at risk)

Core vaccines for dogs:

  • Rabies (mandated by law)
  • Combo Vaccine: Guards against distemper, parvovirus, leptospirosis, as well as parainfluenza.
  • Bordetella: Prevents kennel cough (important for dogs that visit groomers, boarding facilities, dog parks)
  • Canine Influenza: Protects against both of the most prevalent strains of Canine Influenza (H3N2 and H3N8) which, if contracted, can cause permanent lung damage.
