Part of preventative care is keeping your pets up to date by bringing them for their annual exams and renewing their vaccinations. Vaccinations help keep your animals healthy and happy.
We provide care based on the individual needs of your pet. Therefore we administer treatment and vaccines based solely on the needs of your pet.
FeLV and FIV testing is strongly recommended for kittens prior to vaccination because vaccinations are not effective if the kitten has already been exposed to either of these diseases.
All puppies and kittens should be tested, as early as possible, for intestinal parasites. When it comes to worming fecal exams are necessary, and we feel that all puppies and kittens should be de-wormed at least twice.
If you choose to get a pet from the Humane Society, take in a stray, or in some other way inherit an older pet, it should be brought in for a full physical exam as soon as possible.
Dogs over six months of age, or that have traveled outside of Washington State, should be tested yearly for heartworm prior to being placed on preventatives.
