HOW OFTEN SHOULD MY ADULT PET BE VACCINATED?
Adult animals should receive vaccination boosters and a doctor exam every year. This not only keeps there vaccine protection up-to-date, it also keeps a valid relationship with their doctor. It is that relationship that allows the doctor to prescribe medications including flea and tick preventatives.
Some grooming and boarding facilities require more frequent boosters with proof of vaccination. We are more than happy to advise you in such circumstances and vaccinate your animal as appropriate. We can also provide documentation as necessary!

ARE VACCINATIONS SAFE FOR MY PET?
Vaccination reactions do occur however they are relatively rare in our furry friends. We always keep an eye on new pets during their first vaccinations to see if they will have a reaction. If they do, we can give them medication to combat the symptoms. Then we can design a plan to best minimize their risk while keeping them protected. This plan is specially tailored to your individual pet’s needed.
What is a microchip and why does my pet need one?
A microchip is a small computer chip that is inserted under the skin above the shoulder blades of your pet, just like a vaccine. Once it is inserted and registered, any shelter or vet that finds your missing pet can simply scan it, search an online database using the ID number, and PRESTO they can contact you and reunite you with your furry friend!
This safe and inexpensive technology has reunited MILLIONS of lost pets with their owners. They are permanent so you only have to get it inserted once and it goes in just like a vaccine! They are extremely safe and easy to apply. They do NOT work like a GPS and they do NOT contain your personal information so they are completely secure! We can microchip your pet at any appointment with no fuss!
