Wellness Exams

Dogs and cats age far faster than people, so significant changes in your pet's health can happen in a short period of time. Yearly exams allow us to diagnose diseases and conditions early, when they're easier to treat or manage. Often, we can help prevent diseases entirely, just by ensuring that your pet has received appropriate vaccinations and preventives. Not only do these yearly exams give us the opportunity to assess your pet's ongoing health and identify any possible concerns, but they also provide us the chance to get to know both you and your pet better.

Our yearly wellness programs are designed specifically for your pet's unique needs and include: comprehensive physical exams, parasite prevention and treatment, individualized vaccination programs, and specialized blood tests for all life stages. We recommend that healthy adult dogs and cats visit us once a year. Puppies, kittens, senior pets, and pets with health issues or illnesses need more frequent checkups.

Wellness exams are also the perfect opportunity for you to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about your pet and get some valuable advice and guidance from one of our experts. From birth through the golden years, we will work with you and your pet to help ensure that he or she enjoys a long, happy and healthy life.

Vaccinations

The purpose of a vaccination program is to prevent disease. Puppies and kittens receive disease protection from there mother's milk, but this immunity begins to diminish between 6 to 8 weeks, making puppies and kittens more vulnerable to infection. The first set of vaccinations for your puppy or kitten are recommended at 6 to 8 weeks of age. These vaccines are repeated at 10 to 12 weeks, and then at 16 weeks to make sure that your pet is fully protected. The vaccines are divided into these time periods to give the animal's immune system time to build up antibodies for the particular diseases they are vaccinated for. After this series of close vaccinations, our pets just have to maintain their vaccines once a year, depending on the vaccine used.

Dogs are commonly vaccinated for the following:

  • Distemper is a viral disease that is highly contagious and often fatal. It can cause runny nose, coughing, fever, vomiting, diarrhea, convulsions and paralysis. If an animal survives the virus, they can have life-long effects from the disease.
  • Parvovirus is a very potent, highly contagious virus causing severe bloody diarrhea and vomiting. It is seen quite often in young pups, and can be fatal. Dogs can become infected through oral contact with feces, soil, or other infected objects.
  • Parainfluenza is a highly contagious respiratory virus. Signs include coughing, fever, nasal discharge, lethargy, and loss of appetite.
  • Rabies is an incurable, fatal viral disease that can be transferred between almost all mammals, including humans. The rabies virus is spread commonly through a bite from an infected animal. The virus affects the central nervous system and causes disease in the brain and eventually death. This vaccine is a legal requirement in Ontario and is also required to travel out of the country.


Cats are commonly vaccinated for the following:

  • Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis causes upper repiratory-tract infections and is easily transmitted by direct contact from one cat to another. It is caused by feline herpesvirus and can produce symptoms such as fever, coughing, sneezing, eye and nasal discharges, and often corneal ulceration.
  • Calicivirus causes upper respiratory-tract infection. It is wide spread and highly contagious, causing fever, sneezing, nasal discharge, ulcers, blisters on the tongue and pneumonia.
  • Panleukopenia is an often fatal, highly contagious virus caused by feline parvovirus spread through contact with an infected animals bodily fluids, feces, or other infected objects. It primarily attacks the gastrointestinal system and can cause vomiting, bloody diarrhea, dehydration and weakness, as well as a low white blood cell count.
  • Feline Leukemia Virus can be transmitted through infected saliva and nasal secretions. It is a form of cancer of the white blood cells and degenerative disease in cats, it also causes destruction of the immune response system. The symptoms vary from a loss of appetite, poor coat conditions, oral disease, fever, recurring bacterial and viral illness, anemia, and diarrhea.
  • Rabies is an incurable, fatal viral disease that can be transferred between almost all mammals, including humans. The rabies virus is spread commonly through a bite from an infected animal. The virus affects the central nervous system and causes disease in the brain and eventually death. This vaccine is a legal requirement in Ontario and is also required to travel out of the country.

Pharmacy

Our clinic boasts a well-stocked pharmacy which includes all of the frequently used injectable, topical, and oral medications prescribed by our veterinarians for your pets. If we do not have a medication in stock we often can order it quickly for your pet, or can provide a prescription for you to use at a local pharmacy. For those pets who prove difficult to medicate, we can have the medication compounded into liquids and chewables in flavours such as chicken, tuna, peanut butter, and beef.
