QUESTIONS

MY DOG STAYS INDOORS OTHER THAN TO GO TO THE BATHROOM. DOES HE/SHE STILL NEED TO BE ON MONTHLY HEARTWORM PREVENTION?

Yes, heartworms are carried by mosquitos, and they can be infected by just one bite, whether that is indoors or outdoors.  After a negative heartworm test, the dog should be started on monthly heartworm prevention.  This pill is easy to give, and most dogs think it is a treat!  They are inexpensive and should be given to the dog every 30 days for the rest of his or her life. We also offer topical solution, too.

DOES MY PET NEED TO GO THROUGH ONE HEAT CYCLE BEFORE BEING SPAYED?

No, it is best to have her spayed before the first heat cycle.  Dogs/cats can be spayed and neutered starting at 4 months of age, with the ideal time being between 4-6 months of age.

DOES MY PET NEED VACCINES?

Pets need vaccines to stimulate the immune system to fight a certain number of diseases that could otherwise be life threatening. Vaccine protocol can very by pet, due to age, lifestyle and specific need.  Generally vaccines start around 6-9 weeks and are continued in a series as the puppy/kitten ages.

WHAT DOES IT COST TO HAVE MY DOG/CAT SPAYED OR NEUTERED?
