Wellness and Vaccination Programs

Puppy Wellness

By |

Congratulations on your new puppy! Thank you for choosing us to help protect and care for your new addition to your family.

Our puppy wellness program is designed to help get your puppy started on the right path to a long and healthy life. The first few months are a critical period in your puppy’s development, and we can give you the support and tools necessary to help him or her grow into a well-mannered, healthy dog, including information and advice on nutrition, training, behavior, and socialization.

We recommend all puppies start vaccinations at 6 weeks of age, followed by boosters every 3 weeks until at least 15 weeks old. Your puppy should be vaccinated for rabies at 12 weeks. At this time, the veterinarian may recommend additional vaccinations including, but not limited to Leptospirosis, Bordetella (Kennel Cough) and Canine Influenza (Flu). We highly recommend examinations at each of the 3 week intervals to closely monitor your puppy’s development as well as to answer any questions you may have during this time. With each puppy exam, we offer a complimentary fecal examination. Your puppy will be provided a free sample dose of heartworm preventative at 12 weeks of age. We recommend you start your new puppy on monthly heartworm preventative by their final puppy exam at 15 weeks of age. All puppies should be tested for heartworms after 6 months of age. Heartworm Disease is easily preventable. Our veterinary staff will be glad to offer you the latest in preventative options, providing details for each type to help you decide what will best for you and your new pup!

Schedule your puppy for his or her first exam as soon as possible. Until your puppy has received a series of vaccines, he or she is susceptible to many serious but preventable diseases. We will make sure your new dog is protected against rabies, distemper, and parvovirus, among other diseases. Your puppy will also need to be tested and treated for parasites, which are extremely common in young dogs.

We look forward to meeting your new puppy! Schedule your appointment today.

Congratulations on your new kitten! Thank you for choosing us to help protect and care for your new addition to your family.

Our kitten wellness program is designed to help get your kitten started on the right path to a long and healthy life. The first few months are a critical period in your kitten’s development, and we can give you the support and tools necessary to help him or her grow into a well-mannered, healthy cat, including information and advice on nutrition, litterbox training, and behavior.

Just like puppies, we recommend all kittens start vaccinations at 6 weeks of age. Kitten should be vaccinated at 3 week intervals until at least 12 weeks of age. Your kitten’s first rabies vaccination is due at 12 weeks of age. Your kitten will be provided with a complimentary fecal with each kitten exam. A free sample dose of flea preventative will offered at 12 weeks. We strongly recommend all cats be tested for Feline Leukemia Virus as early as possible. After 6 months of age, we recommend testing for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus.

Schedule your kitten for his or her first exam as soon as possible. Until your kitten has received a series of vaccines, he or she is susceptible to many serious but preventable diseases. We will make sure your new pet is protected against rabies and panleukopenia (distemper) as well as other diseases, such as feline leukemia virus (FeLV). In addition, your kitten will need to be tested and treated for parasites, which are common in young cats.

We look forward to meeting your new kitten! Schedule your appointment today.

Adult Pet Wellness

Regular annual wellness visits for your pets are critical to help maintain the health and quality of life your pet deserves. There is the saying “An ounce of preventative is worth a pound of cure”. We couldn’t agree more. We recommend your pet come in at least once a year for a wellness examination. This “yearly check-up” will allow your veterinarian to exam your pet for any problems, answer questions you may have, as well as get up to date on vaccines and routine testing. At Brown Creek Animal Hospital, we recommend all core vaccinations (parvo, distemper, Bordetella, etc.) be given on an annual basis at minimum. This will ensure proper protection for your pet. We also offer discounted prices on annual wellness blood work and urinalysis. This has been an extremely valuable tool in detecting problems early, which can only help to ensure your pet gets the best treatment available. Heartworm testing is also highly recommended during your pet’s wellness visit. Check out our online pet health library for more information, or feel free to give us a call.
