Concierge Veterinary Hospital places a high value on preventative care and wellness visits for ALL pets. From the puppy and kitten stages, throughout adult life, and into the senior years, preventative care can help your pet live a longer, healthier life by preventing diseases and catching illness in its early stages. Preventive care is tailored specifically to each pet, with recommendations made relative to your pet’s age, location, and lifestyle. The doctors of Caring Hands Animal Hospital are likely to recommend many of the following items as part of the lifetime care plan for your pet: Puppies & Kittens should be seen at approximate ages 8, 12, and 16 weeks for a comprehensive physical exam with the veterinarian, fecal testing & parasite deworming, vaccinations, and to start flea, tick, and heartworm prevention. For more information on Puppy & Kitten Care please click here. Spaying or neutering dogs and cats is recommended around 6 months of age to prevent pregnancy, avoid overpopulation, and eliminate the risk of uterine and testicular cancer. Adult pets between the ages of 1 to 6 years should be seen for wellness visits at least once annually for a comprehensive physical exam with the veterinarian, fecal testing, vaccine boosters, and ongoing flea, tick, and heartworm preventatives. Dental care will be discussed during each physical exam, and a dental cleaning may be recommended when tartar and/or gingivitis are noted. To learn more, please click here. Senior pets age 7 and over should be seen twice yearly for a physical exam, fecal testing, vaccine boosters, ongoing flea/tick/heartworm prevention, and lab work (blood and urine testing) to monitor health and check for common age-related illnesses. To learn more about Senior Care and our Pets Aging With Style (PAWS) program, please click here. VACCINATIONS Your veterinarian will be the best resource to determine the appropriate course of vaccinations for your pet’s lifestyle. Outlined below is a list of vaccinations available through Caring Hands Animal Hospitals. Please click on each one to find out more in depth information. Rabies Distemper (DHPP and FVRCP) Leptospirosis Lyme Bordetella Influenza Feline Leukemia PREVENTATIVES The doctors and staff at Caring Hands Animal Hospital recommend year-round protection against fleas, ticks, and heartworms for all pets, indoor and outdoor. For more information on parasites, please visit the Companion Animal Parasite Council website. Fleas and ticks exist year-round in our climate, and may even be carried inside unknowingly on your shoes and clothing. Once monthly topical application of Frontline Plus, Parastar, Vectra, or other veterinarian approved medication can be enough to keep fleas and ticks off of your pet and avoid the diseases associated with these parasites. Heartworms, carried by mosquitos, infect dogs and cats and cause asthma-like symptoms and can often be fatal. Heartworm preventative is as simple as a monthly treatment of a liquid topical or flavored chewy treat. Depending on your pet’s specific needs, Caring Hands may recommend Interceptor, Heartgard, Revolution, or other preventative, for lifelong heartworm preventative. For more information on heartworms, we recommend the American Heartworm Society. All preventatives mentioned may be purchased through our price-competitive online pharmacy.
