We offer the most current advice on preventative health care, including the vaccinations for your cat. Vaccines are a very important part of preventative healthcare for your cat. Vaccines aid in helping your cat live a long and healthy life!
Yes, it is recommended they be vaccinated. Please visit your DVM who can provide the most accurate information concerning your cat’s vaccinations!
What are FVRCP and core vaccine for cats?
Feline Rhinotracheitis-Calici-Panleukopenia or FVRCP for cats is an important part of your cat’s routine. It can prevent multiple potentially deadly airborne viruses.
How often does my adult cat need to be vaccinated?
We recommend feline leukemia once a year and FVRCP once every three years. When you come into the clinic for vaccinations, your cat will also get a full exam! Please give us a call at the clinic if you have any questions or concerns.
Are there any risk associated with cat vaccines?
Yes, while uncommon, your DVM can talk to you about any risks associated with any vaccines your cat is receiving.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective June 8, 2020 some restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
