Pet Vaccinations
and Prevention

Prevention is the best medicine! Just like children, dogs and cats need vaccinations to ward off dangerous diseases.

Protection with vaccines should begin early when they are puppies and kittens, and then be supplemented with boosters as they become adults.

Vaccinations
for dogs and cats

Most puppies and kittens are not born with immunity to diseases. They receive immunity from their mother during the first few days of life. This immunity is designed to last only long enough for the young animals to start making their own antibodies.

Vaccines help protect your dog or cat from common diseases, which is a critical part of caring for your pet.

Parasite Prevention

Mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks all carry diseases that can be easily spread to your dog or cat and cause devastating health issues. With the help of our caring and experienced veterinary staff, it’s easy to stay up-to-date on your pet’s vaccines and preventative medication.

We believe preventive medicine is the best way to keep a pet healthy and happy while limiting the lifetime cost of care.
