Little amounts of altered or “dead” viruses, bacteria, or other disease-causing organisms are present in vaccines. When given, they encourage the immune system of your pet to develop antibodies and disease-fighting cells that can defend against such illnesses. We will suggest vaccination schedules based on your pet’s age, breed, and species during the wellness examination.
Annual Blood Work
Your pet’s health absolutely depends on blood tests. Blood tests are helpful in diagnosing your pet’s illness, much like in human medicine. Blood tests can reveal a variety of information to the veterinarian, such as whether your pet is dehydrated or battling an infection.
Heartworm and Flea Prevention
Dogs and cats can harbor the parasite heartworm in their hearts. The worm is spread from one infected animal to another by mosquitoes. A dog’s heart may contain several hundred worms, and parasite infection causes serious harm and may even be deadly.
Fleas are tiny, leaping insects that feed on animal blood. They frequently cause allergic dermatitis “extreme itching” in pets and can spread harmful infections.
