Wellness Exams (Puppies/Kittens to Seniors)
Wellness visits are an overall assessment of your pet's health which can include a fecal test, blood test and vaccinations. Vaccinations are the best weapon against many viral and bacterial infections. We believe in vaccinating your pet according to your pet’s needs based on age, health status, environment and lifestyle.  Our vets recommend that your pet comes in for an exam at least once a year. Pets over 10 years old might need more frequent visits. For puppies and kittens still needing their initial vaccinations, more frequent visits are necessary. Depending on age, it takes 3 to 4 visits to complete all initial vaccines. Vaccinations typically start at 6-8 weeks old, and the vaccination series is completed around 16 weeks old.

Standard Vaccinations:

  • Dogs: DHPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, and Parvovirus.), & Rabies
    • We also recommend the leptospirosis vaccine. Click here for more info on it.
    • Daycare and Boarding facilities can require additional vaccines and tests, such as a negative fecal test and Bordetella, and CIV(Canine Influenza) vaccines. Please check with your daycare/boarding facility for their requirements.
  • Cats: FVRCP (feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus and panleukopenia/FEL distemper) & Rabies

An average visit can cost anywhere from $55-$200. It all depends on what your pet’s needs are. Nothing will be performed on your pet without your okay. Upon request, a cost estimate can be provided before any and all procedures.

Microchipping
Each year thousands of pets go missing. Microchipping your pet is an easy and effective way to help them find their way back home. Microchips are no bigger than a grain of rice and are inserted under your pet's skin between the shoulder blades. Typically, this would be performed during spay or neutering but can be done at any time. It is important that you properly fill out the information according to instructions and keep that information up-to-date. When a lost pet is scanned for a chip, an identification number allows them to look up that information and contact the owner.
