WELLNESS & VACCINATIONS
Wellness Examinations & Individualised Vaccination Programs
Annual physical examinations are the basis for helping us to ensure the optimal quality of life in all life stages of your pet. Before any vaccination takes place we perform a thorough clinical examination on your pet. Once any health issues are identified, we will discuss the appropriate vaccinations for your pet.
There are many vaccines that are available for use in dogs and cats, but not every pet needs every available vaccine. Some vaccines are considered core vaccines, whereas other vaccines are optional and may be recommended for pets based on a variety of factors, such as their risk for exposure to disease.
Vaccine recommendations can also change throughout a pet’s life, as travel habits and other variables change. We will consider all these factors as we determine which vaccines your pet should have. We understand that your pet is unique and that no single vaccination program will be ideal for every pet in every situation. Our goal is to give you the best advice for keeping your pet healthy. We develop a vaccination schedule and ongoing booster routine that accounts for your pet’s lifestyle, overall health, the risk of exposure to infectious disease, and other factors.
Puppy & Kitten Programs
The first few weeks in a new family is an extremely important time in a young puppy or kitten’s life and we love to help families ensure that any health or behaviour issues are dealt with swiftly and appropriately. By doing this, we hope to set the foundation for a long, happy and healthy life together.
Computerised Medical Records
All of our medical and patient records are stored electronically. Having our records electronically linked to your pet’s laboratory results and x-rays allows for more efficient and effective patient care.
Leishmaniasis, Ehrlichiosis & Heartworm Screening
Dogs should be tested for Leishmaniasis, Ehrlichiosis and Heartworm disease at least once a year. We offer screening packages for these diseases that can either be carried out in-house or at a veterinary lab in Athens.
