What vaccines does my pet need?
Vaccines are a vital part in keeping your pet healthy. Our veterinarians recommend staying up to date annually on all provided vaccines. Below are a list of our highly recommended vaccines that we offer.
We recommend starting vaccines in puppies and kittens at 6 weeks old. We booster vaccines every 3-4 weeks until they are 16 weeks old to give them the most protection against various common diseases in this area.
Why does my pet need annual wellness panel blood screening?
Our pets can't speak, they cannot tell us if they feel unwell or have any other indicators of internal illness. Pets can actively mask signs of illness until late in the course of disease. This stems from survival instincts in a pack or colony situation. We need to examine your pet annually and recommend running wellness panels to detect any underlying diseases before they are clinically apparent. We offer a variety of wellness panels to choose from based on your pet's needs. We believe testing annually gives us the best chance of helping your pet's live longer, healthier lives.
Wellness Panels include a variety of tests such as:
Chemistry profile and CBC: A blood chemistry profile, including electrolytes, provides information about your pet's liver, kidneys, and pancreas as well as other functions of the body, such as blood sugar and hydration, A complete blood count (CBC) can identify infection, inflammation, and anemia.
Infectious Disease Screening: Identifies whether your pet has been exposed to parasite diseases, such as tick-borne diseases, heartworm, or other infectious diseases.
Fecal Test: Check for intestinal parasites, which may live in your pet's gastrointestinal tract. Since they are usually hidden from view, the only way to detect the presence of most intestinal parasites and identify them is by doing a fecal test.
Complete Urinalysis: Identifies an infection or inflammation in the urinary tract.
Thyroid Function Test: A thyroid function test detects whether or not your pet's thyroid gland is functioning properly. Thyroid disease is very common in older cats and dogs.
