When mosquitoes bite, they can transmit heartworm disease and those heartworms can wreak havoc on your dog or cat. Treatment for heartworms is far more expensive than prevention. You can prevent heartworms by administering monthly heartworm prevention.

Wellness and Vaccinations
From our puppy and kitten wellness protocols to our senior wellness protocols, we want to keep your pets on the right path to a long and healthy life.
Puppies and Kittens should be scheduled as soon as possible to start their vaccines as he or she is susceptible to many serious but preventable diseases. There are also many intestinal parasites, such as roundworms, that can be transmitted to humans and are extremely common in young pets, and because of this we want to be sure to test and treat them for these intestinal parasites.
Adult pets should be seen on an annual basis to reassure you that he or she is healthy and can also help us detect hidden diseases or conditions early. Dogs and cats age far quicker than humans, so it is even more crucial for our companion pet to receive regular exams.
Senior status depends on your pet's breed and size. Smaller dogs tend to live longer than larger dogs, and cats generally live longer than dogs. We can help determine what life stage your pet is in. As pets get older, they need more attention and special care. Our senior wellness protocol can help your pet remain fit and healthy as she or he ages and helps us catch any potential problems early when they're easier to treat or manage. Regular veterinary exams can help your pet live longer, too!
Because you spend the most time with your pet, you are your pet's expert, as well as his or her greatest advocate. Please let us know if you have noticed any physical or behavioral changes in our pet, as well as any other concerns you might have.
