Good to know

Your family pet cannot tell you if there is anything wrong. Our veterinarian will exam your family pet from snout to tail. We will check their vitals: heart rate, pulse rate, capillary refill time, temperature and respiration rate. We will flea comb to check for fleas and flea debri at their skin level. We will palpate along their neck, arm pits and hind limbs for any lymph node swelling or pain on palpation of all their joints. We will palpate their abdomen and evaluate their spine for any pain. We will assess their internal exam by getting their blood and evaluating their CBC and Chemistry values. Then we will discuss with you our findings that very same day. We want your pet to stay healthy. A healthy pet makes a happy family.

We must start your family pets vaccines at 6-8 weeks of age. Then every 21 days until they reach four months old. We evaluate their fecal sample for intestinal parasites. We flea comb them to evaluate for fleas and flea Debra on their skin. We vaccinate cats for Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis and Calicivirus, Feline Leukemia, Feline Bordatella and Rabies. We vaccinate dogs for Canine Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Leptospira, Parvo, Canine Bordatella, Canine Influenza and Rabies. These vaccines must be given annually. Vaccinations help protect your dog and cat from these viral diseases that are highly contagious.

We offer daycare. We will need to have their current vaccine history. We have indoor dog runs. Your family dog will be hard walked four times a day in our landscaped grass yard. We can play and throw the ball to them for one price of $13.
