Bordetella Vaccination (Kennel Cough)

The bordetella vaccination can be administered at any time after your puppy has reached 8 weeks of age.

This vaccine is only required when your dog will board at a kennel, attend puppy or other classes, or go to a groomer or doggy day care.

This vaccine can be given two weeks before your dog is scheduled to attend one of these situations and is otherwise not routinely given.

About the 4DX Test & Heartworm Prevention

Our veterinary hospital requires a yearly 4DX test in order for heartworm prevention to be dispensed. All diseases that this test detects are treatable and can greatly affect your dog's health if left untreated. The only way for us to ensure that your pet receives proper treatment is to test yearly or when one of these diseases is suspected.
Heartworm prevention is recommended year-round to protect your pet. We primarily use Interceptor™, which comes in a once-a-month, flavored chewable tablet. Interceptor prevents heartworm disease and controls roundworm, hookworm, and whipworm infestation in dogs.

Flea & Tick Prevention

Flea and tick prevention is also recommended year-round, as flea and tick infestations are much easier to prevent than to treat once established. Fleas do not only cause itchy suffering and rashes to both you and your pets, they also transmit tapeworms as well. In severe cases, fleas and ticks cause anemia, resulting in severe health complications for your pet.
Ticks can transmit Lyme disease, as well as the lesser known diseases ehrlichiosis and anaplasmosis. All of these tick diseases can cause severe pain in the joints, fever, lethargy, and deterioration to the organs if left untreated.
