How often should my pet be seen?

Like humans, pets should have an annual exam as well as visits when they are not feeling well. If your pet suffers from a chronic illness or disease or is a senior pet, it may be required that they have more frequent veterinary visits.

What do I need to know about vaccines?

Kittens and puppies require vaccinations between 6-8 weeks, then 12 weeks and 16 weeks. After that, your kitten and puppy should receive annual check-ups to receive routine care and vaccinations.

The following are the common vaccinations your pet will receive from the time they are a puppy or kitten and when they an adult animal.

  • Rabies (Canines and Felines)
  • Canine Parvovirus (Canines only)
  • Canine Hepatitis (Canines only)
  • Feline Calicivirus (Felines only)
  • Feline Rhinotracheitis (Felines only)
Do you offer advanced surgical options?

We work with a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who comes to our location mainly for ACL repairs. Dr. Spaccarelli can also do ACL repairs, so you have options! 

The most common orthopedic surgeries are from knee problems – injuries to the Cranial Cruciate ligament (CCL) or from patellar (knee-cap) problems (Medial Patellar Luxation or MPL). We can help.

What is the HomeAgain Microchip?
The HomeAgain microchip is a tiny chip (about the size of a grain of rice) that is inserted between your pet’s shoulder blades. They are designed to last your pet’s entire lifetime, and once enrolled, they link to a permanent record of your owner’s information. Our microchipping fee also includes a year of membership with HomeAgain‘s complete pet recovery service, which includes: lost pet alerts to local animal hospitals and shelters, a 24/7 emergency medical hotline and travel assistance for found pets.
What is spaying?
Spaying is the surgical removal of the ovaries (and often the uterus) through a small abdominal incision. From the ASPCA website: “Spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast cancer, which is fatal in about 50 percent of dogs and 90 percent of cats. Spaying your pet before her first heat offers the best protection from these diseases.” Spaying your pet will also end her heat cycles and prevent unwanted pregnancies.
What is neutering?
Neutering is the surgical removal of both testicles through a small incision in the scrotal sac. From the ASPCA website: “Besides preventing unwanted litters, neutering your male companion prevents testicular cancer, if done before six months of age.” Neutering also reduces male pets’ instinct to roam and mark their territory with urine and reduces the risk of prostrate disease.
