PROTECT YOUR PET

 

 

Your pet depends on your protection in many ways.  The common things they need are shelter, food, water, exercise and love.  However, diseases spread by other animals are an ever-present threat to the health of your pet.  We live in a high-risk area for diseases spread by other animals such as ticks and mosquitoes.  Benjamin Franklin was right in saying ďAn ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!Ē  Vaccines are an important protection for your dog.

 

DHLPP:  This vaccine is for canine distemper, parvovirus, hepatitis and leptospirosis.  These diseases are typically spread by dogs, foxes, coyotes, raccoons and rodents.

 

Rabies:  This viral disease is fatal for dogs and cats.  Rabies is almost always transmitted via the bite of a rabid animal (often a skunk, raccoon, fox or bat).

 

Bordetella:  This vaccine is for an upper respiratory infection that is highly contagious between dogs.

 

 

Vaccines are important for both inside and outside cats.

 

FVRCP:  This vaccine protects against rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, chlamydia and panleukopenia which are transmitted by saliva, mucus and other secretions of acutely ill cats.

 

Feline Leukemia:  The feline leukemia virus can infect cats by saliva or nasal discharge, biting, or sharing food and water dishes.

 

Rabies:  Rabies is mainly transmitted through the bite wounds of infected mammals and is highly contagious.

 

 

 

Parasite Prevention

 

Year-round Heartworm Prevention is crucial!  Heartworms are easy to prevent in dogs and cats by a simple monthly pill or topical, however, very dangerous and costly to treat once the pet gets heartworms.  Year-round Flea and Tick Prevention is also necessary to prevent transmission of disease.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Proper Nutrition Is A MUST!

 

 

 

Donít be fooled by the label on the bag of dog or cat food.  If you are not familiar with what makes up the ingredients listed it can be quite misleading.  Allow us to educate you or give you a recommendation about the proper food for your pet.  Good quality food can be tailored for the type of pet you have to prevent and/or manage health issues that are common among that breed.  Take care to feed your pet only pet food (no table food), feed measured amounts once or twice a day, and limit treats.  Remember to always provide lots of fresh, clean water at all times.

 


 

Other ways to protect your pet:

  • Microchip your pet.  A small chip is implanted just under the skin between the shoulder blades so that if your pet is lost or stolen, a simple reader will identify your pet and help reunite you with your pet.

  • Identify toxic foods and plants and keep them out of your petís reach.
