What are the recommended vaccines for a dog?

What vaccines are recommended for cats?
Rabies and FVRCP are core vaccines for all felines. FeLV is recommended for outdoor cats.
Why should I spay or neuter my dog or cat?
There are a number of benefits to spaying/neutering. Some of these include decreasing overpopulation, cancer prevention, limiting aggression, pyometra, and roaming.
What age should I spay or neuter my dog or cat?
There are many studies and many schools of thought regarding the appropriate time to spay or neuter your pet. It’s not as simple as it once was! Please schedule an appointment to discuss what is best for your specific pet.
Should I give my dog or cat monthly heartworm preventative?
Yes! We absolutely recommend administering heartworm preventative as mosquitos are endemic to this area for much of the year. Areas nearby have the dubious distinction of being the “fastest growing heartworm infection areas” in the nation as well.
Should I give my dog or cat a flea and tick preventative year round?
Fleas and ticks are common in our area for a large percentage of the year, and so many pets spend time enjoying the outdoors that we strongly recommend prevention. Please schedule an appointment to discuss the specifics of your individual pet’s lifestyle!
