Vaccine and diagnostic test

 

Prevention is the Best Medicine.

Many diseases and conditions can be prevented easily and cost-effectively through vaccinations, monthly preventative treatments and diagnostic screenings.


Disease Prevention - Vaccine

  • Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis (FVR), Calicivirus (C) and Panleukopenia (P) (FVRCP): FVR & C cause significant respiratory infection in cats, while Panleukopenia infection is usually fatal.
  • Rabies: Rabies is a fatal disease. It is necessary to vaccinate all of our companion animals and present proof of vaccination to the city in which they live.
  • Heartworm Disease: Heartworms are transmitted by infected mosquitos. Cats and Dogs, both indoors and out, are at risk.
  • Types of Diagnostic Tests

  • Complete Blood Cell Count: Identifies infection and inflammation as well as subtle but life-threatening conditions such as anemia or bone marrow disease.
  • Organ Biochemical Profile: Provides information about organ function and screens for diseases, even when the pet is not symptomatic.
  • Thyroid Screen: Thyroid disease can be subtle, causing chronic illnesses ranging from mild to severe. Further testing may be required, but early treatment can prevent or delay other illnesses.
  • Urinalysis: Checks the urine for cells, crystals and chemistry. Some problems detected through urinalysis can be remedied simply by changing your pet's diet.
  • X-ray: Many diseases will change the shape, size and appearance of organs before other physical signs are present. Periodic X-rays of the chest and abdomen can be used to monitor these organs.
  • Feline Leukemia (FeLV), Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV): Viruses that causes immune system disease and leukemia (blood cancer) in cats.
