Regular exams with one of our veterinarians are an excellent way to keep your companion happy and healthy. Often times dogs and cats mask illness and pain. Having our veterinarian perform a complete physical exam allows us to detect early warning signs that may arise. For our geriatric patients we recommend bi-annual exams since their supportive care needs are greater and aging changes happen more rapidly. Examinations allow our veterinarians to be proactive with diagnostics to keep your companion more comfortable.
Vaccinations are an excellent way to prevent against life threatening illness. We understand that every pet has different needs and risks of exposure. We individualize a vaccine treatment plan for each of our patients depending on their risk. We have selected the vaccines that are safe and effective, trying to minimize the risk of any adverse effects. At the same time, like any medication, there are rare complications and risks associated with vaccination. Our goal is to work with you to determine the best way to keep your companion healthy while avoiding unnecessary vaccination risks.
