General Health Guidelines

Vaccinations-  Your pet should be current on its rabies and distemper combination vaccinations as well as any additional vaccinations that you feel would best protect your pet from contagious disease.  There are a number of other vaccinations available so if you are wondering if there is something that your pet is missing, please call.
Deworming-  All pets should be dewormed at least once yearly.  Puppies and kittens need frequent deworming within the first 6 months of life.  Older pets may need to be dewormed more often if they are living in envirnoments where there is greater exposure.

Flea and Tick Prevention-  All pets should receive some type of flea and tick prevention.  This not only protects them from bringing the fleas and ticks into your home, it also prevents the possible transmission of infectious diseases that the fleas and tick may carry.  We recommend Frontline for dogs and Revolution for cats.  These products need to be applied once monthly for best protection.
Heartworm Preventative-  Heartworm disease is transmitted by the mosquito.  The disease is hard to treat but easy to prevent.  We recommend testing animals for the disease prior to starting them on the preventative.  Preventatives are given once monthly in the form of a chewable treat.  We recommend Heartguard Plus.  This product will also help deworm your pet.
