Pet Vaccinations and Exams in Orlando
Many people wish their pets can live as long as they do. Although we can’t make that happen, what we CAN do is help them live healthy lives with preventive care in the form of comprehensive wellness exams. Vaccinations, and parasite control are equally important and are usually updated during the wellness visits, as needed. We want your four-legged friend to be around for as long as possible to chase those Frisbees and keep your lap warm, just as much as you do. With preventive care, we can help make that happen.
About Your Pet’s Wellness Exam
We typically recommend pet wellness exams once a year for dogs and cats under 7 years old and twice a year for pets over 7. These visits allow us to establish a relationship with you and your pet and to establish a baseline for health to be used for future visits. During the exam, we’ll check your pet from nose to tail to see if there are any areas that need to be treated. We can then administer treatment or make a recommendation for a more comprehensive diagnosis in the form of X-rays or laboratory testing. If you have any concerns about your pet’s diet, behavior, or anything else, please feel free to let us know during this visit. After all, no one knows your pet more than you do.
Pet Vaccinations in Orlando
Just like human vaccines, pet vaccines offer protection from diseases and viruses, including:
- Canine parvovirus
- Canine Bordetella
- Feline panleukopenia
- Feline leukemia
- Feline calicivirus
Vaccination schedules vary, depending on your pet’s age, breed and lifestyle. We can customize a schedule for your pet during the wellness visits.
Another important part of your pet’s preventive care plan is parasite control, even if your companion is an indoor pet. Fleas—which can cause allergy dermatitis—can hitch a ride in your home on the soles of your shoes. Mosquitoes—which can cause heartworm disease—can make their way in through open windows and doors. If your pet spends time outdoors, ticks are another common parasite to be mindful of, since they can cause Lyme and other diseases. This is why we recommend year-round parasite prevention.
