Your pet's health will benefit from a yearly examination with our doctors. Because our pets age faster than we do, annual appointments with a veterinarian are the least we can do to keep them healthy.
At this yearly visit, we will examine your pet’s lung and heart function. Next, he will check the animal’s joints and muscles, as well as its hearing and vision. Our team will take note of any areas of concern and get your pet scheduled for treatment if necessary. If not, we will plan on seeing you both again in a year.
When you are here, be sure to let our team know if you have any questions about your pet’s health. If you have concerns about your animal’s weight, diet, or behavior, let us know. We believe that you are the key to your pet’s wellness and want to facilitate your involvement.
Fortifying your pet against illness is easier when you follow the recommended vaccine schedule. This will vary depending on the species and breed of your animal, but the results are always the same: healthier pets and less money spent on treatment.
For your new puppy, Olde Towne Hospital recommends a complete series of vaccinations. In a year, and every year after, our team will provide these booster shots:
Additionally, we recommend that canines receive vaccinations for rabies and DHPP (distemper, hepatitis, parainfluenza, and parvovirus) every three years.
Felines follow their own vaccine schedule. It includes an initial series for kittens that includes FVRCP, Rabies and possibly Feline Leukemia Virus. Every 3 years we recommend boosters.
If you have questions about your pet’s required vaccinations, give our office a call.
Parasites are more than an inconvenience for your pet. Over time, a parasite can stunt growth, aggravate existing medical conditions, and result in life-threatening infections. To avoid complicated treatment plans and costly bills, prevention is key. Routine examinations and laboratory testing are a great way to start.
There are also a number of preventative medications that protect pets against parasites. The industry’s best dewormers and oral medications can be found in our online store and at our clinic. These products will protect your pet against common parasites, such as:
If your pet spends a lot of time outdoors, it is especially vulnerable to these parasites. Give us a call, visit the online store, or stop by our clinic to purchase parasite medication. And if your animal is already infected with a parasite, trust Olde Towne Animal Hospital for caring and professional treatment.
