Just as with humans, we know that regular checkups for your pet are important to their well-being. We carefully select the best vaccines available and tailor the schedule for administering those vaccines based on the individual pet and their lifestyle.
We also offer vaccine titers to check and see if new vaccines are needed. While Tucson used to have fewer mosquitoes and very little heartworm disease, that is unfortunately no longer the case. As a result, we recommend that all pets be tested for this deadly disease and then started on preventatives. As a bonus, the preventative we use also treats for common intestinal parasites. Since many of these intestinal parasites can be transferred to people (especially children or the elderly!), this preventative is beneficial in multiple ways.
Regular baseline blood testing can also help to identify health issues as early as possible.
