Prevention is certainly the best medicine. I would rather keep your pet well than have to treat it for illness. Annual physical exams and vaccinations play a critical role in my preventive philosophy.
Annual wellness exams are very important to ensure that your pet is as healthy as he/she can be whether your pet is a young puppy/kitten or a senior pet. This exam is a thorough full body examination that is used to help find early signs of issues or illness in your pet. Annual wellness exams also allow me to monitor any chronic illnesses that your pet may be dealing with.
Vaccinations for our feline and canine companions are important to prevent them from suffering from many different diseases. Many vaccines are available for use in dogs and cats, but not every pet needs every available vaccine. Some vaccines are considered core vaccines and should be administered to all pets, whereas other vaccines are optional and may be recommended for pets based on a variety of factors, like risk for exposure to disease. Vaccine recommendations can also change throughout a pet’s life, as travel habits and other variables change. All these factors will be considered to determine which vaccines your pet needs.
I understand that your pet is unique and that no single vaccine program will be ideal for every pet in every situation. As a veterinarian, my goal is to give you the best advice for keeping your pet healthy. Let me develop a vaccination schedule and ongoing booster routine that accounts for your pet’s lifestyle, overall health, risk for exposure to infectious disease, and other factors.
Vaccines help pets live longer, healthier lives. Protecting your pet is our primary goal, so developing an appropriate vaccine schedule for your pet is important to me. Call today to set up an appointment to discuss your pet’s vaccination needs.
