Duarte Azusa Animal Hospital Offers Vaccinations and Preventative Medicine For Pets in Duarte, CA
Preventative measures can make a significant difference in the health of your pet, and can save you money on expensive treatments that are sometimes needed to return your dog or cat to good health. Appropriate vaccinations are the cornerstone of good pet care, and other actions, such as flea and tick control and testing for worms, can ensure your furry pet stays healthy at every stage of life. At Duarte Azusa Animal Hospital, serving Duarte and Azusa, we offer a full range of vaccinations and preventative care options for pets.
The Importance of Pet Vaccinations
Keeping your pet updated on immunizations is the single most important measure you can take to ensure your animal is good health throughout life. Both cats and dogs are subject to a number of infectious diseases that are passed from animal to animal. These diseases can make your companion animal very sick or threaten his or her life. Canines should receive vaccinations against distemper, parvovirus, leptospirosis, and parainfluenza. Felines should get immunizations against rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia. Your Duarte veterinarian can advise you on the best protection for your pet.
Preventative Care Is Beneficial For Pets
Regular visits to our vet in Duarte can ensure that small matters don’t become larger problems. Fleas can make you and your pet uncomfortable, and ticks carry Lyme disease and other health problems. Our veterinarians can discuss the many options available for flea and tick control so that your pet can be protected from external parasites. We can also do a fecal test to detect intestinal worms that can undermine your pet’s health. Medications can help to eliminate worms from your animal’s intestinal tract. Heartworm disease is transmitted by a mosquito’s bite, but your pet can avoid this health threat by taking heartworm prevention treatments. These drugs are available in oral, topical, and injectable form.
