Parasite Prevention

Pesky fleas, ticks, and heartworms are not only troublesome to your pet, but if left untreated they can also create complications for the rest of your family. During your pet’s wellness exam, your veterinarian will examine your pet to rule out current infestation as well as discuss preventive products that can protect your pet all year long. These easy-to-administer products help protect your pet from bothersome parasites and dangerous medical conditions. Our trained staff can assist you in selecting products that best meet your pet’s needs.


Vaccinations are an important component in protecting your pet—and their human family members—against a variety of diseases. During your pet’s puppy and kitten stage, he or she will receive initial vaccinations followed by a series of boosters over the next 4 months to build the immune systems. Throughout his or her adult and senior pet stages, your pet will continue to receive annual boosters.

While your veterinarian will talk with you about your pet’s lifestyle and living environment to determine the specific vaccinations he or she requires, below is a list of general vaccines recommended for all pets.
