Keep your pets in optimal health with our vaccination series. During the intial puppy visit, we will begin a 3 shot series and intestinal parasite test. We recommend stating vaccinations on puppies at 6 weeks of age and kittens at 9 weeks of age. Adult animals receive annual vaccinations and are also recommended to have intestinal parasite and heartworn test done.
It’s best to start your pet's heartworm preventative regimen while they’re young with annual vaccinations and a full exam. Our heartworm test consists of drawing a small sample of blood and completing an in-house analysis. You’ll receive your results within 10 minutes. If it is negative, we then start your pet on a heartworm preventive medicine.
If results are positive, we discuss your pets treatment options. Heartworms lead to complications in the heart and lungs, eventually suffocating your pet. Severe infestations show up in the blood and urine, accompanied by a consistent cough. You can begin testing for heartworms at 6 months of age, and preventative is required every month or every 6 months if using Proheart6 for the rest of their life.
