Wellness Packages and preventative care

Preventative care is so important for your pets! Adoption of a comprehensive approach to preventive care — one that extends beyond annual exams and vaccination — leads to longer, healthier lives for pets and their families. 

 

Our pets age at a much faster rate than we do. This means they also develop sicknesses and diseases quicker than we do, too. To help catch diseases and illnesses early, it is vital to make sure your pet is getting a nose to tail examination at least once a year (or every 6 months if your pet is senior aged or has a chronic condition). Doing annual bloodwork is also vital.

 

Doing both of these on a regular basis allows us to identify, catch, and treat problems in the early stages and allow your pet to live a longer life! This also lets us establish a health baseline for your pet and allows us to determine what their "normal" is. Having a history of their regular health values makes it easier to detect signs of illnesses if something changes in the future.

To ensure your pet is covered for preventative care at each stage of life, we offer comprehensive, cost-effective Wellness Packages that include a full work-up of your animal. We offer packages for both cats and dogs for juvenile, adult, and senior ages.

 

While you can do very slight customizations for packages (ex. swapping out a non-expired vaccine for a nail trim), package prices are set and cannot be changed.

Puppy Package-

For puppies 6 months or younger

Puppyhood is a critical time for vaccinations. Because a puppy’s immune system is still developing, they are more at risk for catching infectious diseases and suffering serious complications. Puppies that have never been vaccinated need to begin a vaccination schedule to receive a set of 4 boosters set 3 weeks apart.

 

It's important that your puppy receive all these boosters so they can properly build immunity from communicable (and sometimes deadly) canine infections and diseases. Don’t skip boosters! They are essential to making sure a puppy gets full protection from these dangerous viruses. Each package can be slightly customized depending on if your dog has had prior boosters or not, but package prices are set. Any vaccines given to a puppy before 6 weeks of age do not count towards their full set of puppy boosters due to their immune system being too under-developed to create proper antibodies.

Our Recommended Vaccine Schedule

1. 8-11 Weeks Old

  • 1st Bordetella Booster (Non-CORE Vaccine): Bordetella (also known as Kennel Cough) is a highly communicable disease that is similar to the common cold in humans. It can be contracted from other infected dogs, or environments where other dogs have been (dog parks, pet stores, groomers, boarding places, day cares, vet clinics, etc.)​. While not life threatening, a puppy with a weakened or underdeveloped immune system can become severely ill.

  • 1st DA2PP Booster (CORE Vaccine): This vaccine protects against Distemper, Adenovirus, Parainfluenza, and Parvo, all deadly viruses. Puppies that are not fully vaccinated are highly susceptible to contracting these viruses. 

 

2. 11-14 Weeks Old

  • 2nd Bordetella Booster

  • 2nd DA2PP Booster

3. 14-17 Weeks Old

  • 3rd DA2PP plus Lepto

The 3rd DA2PP booster adds on protection against Leptospirosis. Leptospira is a zoonotic bacteria (meaning it can be passed from animals to humans and vice versa) that targets your dog's kidneys and liver. It is transmitted from infected animals through urine or through the environment (infected soil or water). It can even infect your dog through their skin if they swim in contaminated water. Commonly diagnosed in dogs, this disease can be fatal.

4. 17-20 Weeks Old

  • 4th DA2PP plus Lepto

  • 1-Year Rabies Vaccine (CORE Vaccine)

  • Microchip (Accidents happen and pets can get lost! They can bolt out doors, get spooked and escape, or get lost in a new area. Having a microchip for your pet makes it that much easier to find them and have them reunited with you!)

Generally speaking, puppies should avoid situations and places that carry a high risk of infection (dog parks, pet stores, areas frequented by other dogs, being around dogs who aren’t vaccinated or have an unknown vaccine status, etc.) until 2 weeks after their final booster shot. The two weeks after their final booster allows your puppy's immune system to fully kick in.

However, since socialization and training is important at this age, your puppy might need to visit places frequented by other dogs, such as puppy obedience classes. Make sure to confer with us during your puppy's first appointment to find out the level of risk of specific diseases in our area. We can work together to help you formulate a plan to begin training and socialization with your puppy while also ensuring they stay safe!

adult canine Package- For dogs 12 months to 6 years

Our adult packages include a head to tail external examination of your dog. The full panel bloodwork in the package examines your dog internally by checking your dog's systematic functions. It also checks your dog for heartworm disease. Updating your dog's core vaccines and checking them for internal parasites is also included in this package.

Senior CANINE Package- For dogs 6+ years

In addition to everything in the adult package, the senior version adds on a urinalysis test and thyroid panel to check your dog's kidney values and thyroid. Older dogs tend to have increased problems with these organs, so checking them annually (or bi-annually depending on your dog's age and conditions) helps ensure all their organs are functioning properly.

Feeding Newborn Kitten

kitten Package-

For kittens 6 months or younger

Kittens that have never been vaccinated need to begin a vaccination schedule to receive a set of 4 boosters set 3 weeks apart. It's important that your kitten receive all these boosters so they can properly build immunity from communicable (and sometimes deadly) feline infections and diseases. Each package can be slightly customized depending on if your cat has had prior boosters or not, but package prices are set.

Recommended Vaccine Schedule

  1. 6-10 Weeks Old

  • 1st FVRCP Booster (CORE Vaccine):  This vaccine protects against Feline Distemper (Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, and Panleukopenia). Each of these viruses are very contagious between cats and each virus can a cause of slew of nasty symptoms (or sometimes death in kittens or immunocompromised cats). 

 

2. 11-13 Weeks Old

  • 2nd FVRCP Booster

3. 14-16 Weeks Old

  • 3rd FVRCP Booster

4. 17-20 Weeks Old

  • MicrochipAccidents happen and pets can get lost (or stolen)! They can bolt out doors, escape backyards, or get spooked and run off. Having a microchip for your pet makes it that much easier to find them and have them reunited with you!

  • Spay or Neuter:  Female kittens can get pregnant as young as 16 weeks old, and male kittens can begin reproducing as young as 5 months old. In our country, we have a rampant overpopulation of stray and homeless cats. Many of these cats end up euthanized in shelters, get hit by cars, or die from sickness or injury. Most of these cats were born from accidental litters due to irresponsible people letting their cats breed (intentionally or unintentionally) and letting the un-spayed and un-neutered kittens back into the wild.

To be a responsible pet parent and to reduce the number of stray, unwanted cats and kittens in shelters and in the streets, spay or neuter your kitten as soon as they're 4-6 months old. Even if your cat is strictly indoor, many cats are escape artists. Or accidents can happen where they somehow make it outside. It takes just one time for a kitten to get pregnant (or impregnate another cat).

adult Feline Package- For cats 12 months to 6 years

Our adult packages include a head to tail external examination of your cat. The full panel bloodwork in the package examines your cat internally by checking your cat's systematic functions. It also checks your cat for Feline Leukemia (FELV) and Feline HIV (FIV). Updating your cat's core vaccines and checking them for internal parasites is also included in this package.

Senior Feline Package- For cats 6+ years

In addition to everything in the adult package, the senior version adds on a urinalysis test and thyroid panel to check your cat's kidney values and thyroid. Older cats tend to have increased problems with these organs, so checking them annually (or bi-annually depending on your cat's age and conditions) helps ensure all their organs are functioning properly.
