Preventive Pet Care

Our focus is on preventing illness and early disease detection. Regular physical exams are an important part of keeping your pet happy and healthy. These exams help to provide a picture of your pet’s health and are beneficial in detecting diseases and other health problems in the early stages. 
 
Our veterinarians recommend a complete physical exam annually for all pets. During this visit, the doctor will listen to your pet’s heart and lungs, evaluate their vision, check for unusual lumps, look at their teeth and ears, check their joints for swelling or stiffness and evaluate your pets skin, coat and body condition. Wellness exams allow us to establish a baseline of your pet’s health. This information is very helpful in diagnosing new health problems, following chronic issues or when emergency treatment is needed.
 
Vaccinations
Routine vaccinations are very important to your pet’s overall health care plan. Many diseases that can be fatal to pets can be prevented by vaccinations. Puppies and kittens should start receiving vaccinations at approximately 6-8 weeks of age. The following is our standard vaccine protocol; however, vaccine protocols may have to be adjusted according to each pet’s specific needs.
 
Dogs:
DHPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Para-influenza, Parvo) – after the puppy series is finished at 4 months of ages (16 weeks), the DHPP vaccine is given annually.
Bordetella (Kennel Cough) – This vaccine is given once intranasally during the puppy series and then is given either every 6 months or annually, depending on the pet’s exposure to other dogs (Going to dog parks, training classes, groomers, etc…).
Rabies – The first rabies vaccine is given at 4 months of age. A booster is administered one year after the initial vaccine. Once boostered, the vaccine is given every 3 years as mandated by California state law.
Lyme – The Lyme vaccine is given only to dogs going to area with high tick population. This is typically administered to search and rescue dogs, field-trial dogs, dogs going camping, etc…
 
Cats:
FVRCP (Feline Rhinotracheitis, Calici Virus, Panleukpenia) – After the kitten series is completed at 4 months of age (16 weeks), the FVRCP vaccine is given annually.
FELV (Feline Leukemia) – This vaccine is only given to cats that go outdoors. It is administered twice during the kitten series, 3-4 weeks apart. It is then boostered annually.
Rabies – The first rabies vaccine is given at 4 months of age. It is boostered 1 year after the initial vaccine. Once boostered, the vaccine is given every 3 years.
 
Parasite Prevention & Control
We have an in-house pharmacy for prescription medication, as well as various types of flea, tick and heartworm medications, including Advantage, Advantix, Interceptor and Sentinel. Our staff is very knowledgeable regarding these products, and is always willing to answer any questions about these products and parasite prevention. Intestinal parasite prevention is also a very important part of your pet’s health. Annual Fecal tests are recommended for detecting any intestinal parasites. There are several different intestinal parasites and each one requires a specific treatment.
 
Prescription Foods
We offer a variety of prescription diets, including diets for kidney disease, intestinal issues, weight loss, bladder stones, allergies and more.
 
Puppy & Kitten Care
Puppies and kittens require a series of monthly health exams and lab work during the first 6 months of life. Our comprehensive visits include a physical exam to ensure proper development, parasitic disease screening and treatment and vaccinations. At 6 months of age we recommend spaying or neutering and microchipping your pet.
