Vaccines help to protect your pet against contagious diseases that can cause serious or life-threatening illness. They are recommended based on risk of exposure for each pet in its environment, their health condition, personal history, and daily activities.

Heartworm Testing

You hear about it all the time, from commercials to posters in pet stores. But do you know exactly how your pet might contract heartworm? When bitten by a mosquito that has picked up the infection from a previously infected dog, your pet can become infected. In addition, heartworms live in the blood stream as larvae in juvenile animals, and in the large vessels of the heart as adults. Your pet is going to play outside, and should be tested for heartworm once a year to make sure that those outside trips stay safe and healthy.

Heartworm Prevention

Our experienced staff reviews all heartworm prevention products yearly, and will help you navigate through the many choices out there (oral, injectable, and topical) to find the option that’s perfect for you and your pet.

Our staff would be happy to review prevention options with you to make sure that you stay up-to-date on the best and most effective ways to keep your household tick-free.

Flea Prevention

Fleas are the most common external parasite that can affect your pet, and once they strike, they can cause itching, discomfort, or worse. Our knowledgeable staff will be happy to guide you through the options available, whether you’re ahead of the game and trying to prevent your pet from getting fleas, or your pet already has fleas and needs a topical medication to eradicate them.

We can also help you learn more about how to prevent your home from becoming a flea incubator, as they typically spend the majority of their lives in your house, lying in wait for a warm, furry host.

Spay & Neuter

Pet overpopulation, in addition to being unfortunate, can present all kinds of unforeseen problems including the spreading of disease and endangerment of your children and other people around you. If you do not intend to breed your pet it should be surgically spayed or neutered, which will make for a healthy pet with owners that can feel confident in their impact on the community.
