Wellness care allows us to keep pets healthier by avoiding preventable medical problems. We offer pet owners many opportunities to help their pets thrive and enjoy longer, healthier lives through prevention. Vaccinations against common diseases like Parvovirus, Bordetella, Distemper, Leptospirosis and Rabies for dogs and Feline Upper Respiratory Diseases, Leukemia and Rabies for cats are one important facet of wellness. Pets should also be checked regularly for debilitating intestinal parasites and heartworms and prevention of these nasty pests is easy to do. Periodic blood tests, especially as pets age, can help detect diseases early at their most treatable stage. Spaying and neutering can prevent not only pregnancy and unwanted pets, but reproductive cancers and infections. New developments have made preventing fleas and ticks easier than ever, avoiding irritating, painful skin diseases. Both fleas and ticks can transmit parasitic infections such as Bartonellosis (from fleas) and Lyme Disease (from ticks).
