Pet Vaccinations and Medications Can Prevent Serious Illness

From your puppy or kitten’s first visit, a series of core vaccinations will help protect your pet from a variety of diseases, with boosters during your pet’s adult years to help maintain the immune system.

Core vaccinations for dogs include:

  • Rabies
  • DAPP

Core vaccinations for cats include:

  • Rabies
  • FVRCP/FeLV

Additional vaccinations may include:

  • Bordetella
  • Lyme disease
  • Lepto
  • Rattlesnake

De-worming medications are given to eliminate internal parasites, some of which can be transferred to humans.

Heartworm parasites live in a dog’s heart and nearby blood vessels. Cats can also carry heartworm. There are many safe, effective heartworm medications that keep your pet protected, and are available at our on-site pharmacy.
