YOUR PET NEEDS PROTECTION:
If you have a new puppy or kitten, you owe it to yourself and to your new pet to provide optimum protection against the serious diseases seen in this area. We have developed a Comprehensive Wellness Program that allows you to provide the necessary preventive health care for your pet at the most affordable cost possible. It is an investment in love, companionship, security, loyalty, and devotion for both you and your new family member.
WELLNESS VISITS PROVIDE FOR ALL STAGES OF YOUR PET’S LIFE:
Just as with children, new young pets require several preventive care visits during the first year of life, as well as yearly thereafter.
Each visit will include:
• Weighing the pet.
• Obtaining the pet’s medical history.
• Wellness physical exam.
• Client education materials appropriate for each visit.
• Nutritional and behavioral counseling as needed.
• Appropriate vaccinations at each visit.
• Internal parasite testing and deworming as needed.
• External parasite control recommendations.
YOUR PET IS AT RISK UNTIL THE INITIAL SERIES OF VISITS IS COMPLETED:
If even one of the initial visits is missed or delayed, the window of opportunity for fatal disease is opened wide. It is important to complete the initial series of vaccinations on time. The temporary immunity a newborn pet receives from its mother weakens and is gone somewhere between 8-20 weeks of life. The rate at which this temporary immunity disappears varies with each specific disease and each individual pet. As this immunity disappears, it is important that the pet’s immune system be properly stimulated through vaccination to begin production of it’s own protection. When vaccinations are given at proper intervals, they maximize the chances the pet will develop immunity sufficient to prevent disease.
THERE IS A DIFFERENCE IN VACCINATIONS
Our staff veterinarians review all current information to ensure pets entrusted to our care receive the best, most effective vaccines and that they are given in the proper sequence to stimulate the best protection. Our Wellness Program has been developed so that our clients can provide the best care possible for their pets at reasonable costs.
