Vaccines And Wellness Care
ANNUAL WELLNESS EXAMINATIONS
Since our pets age faster than we do, regular wellness exams are an extremely important part of your pet's overall health care. Every pet is unique, and our goal is to develop a healthcare plan individually tailored to the specific needs of you and your pet. We begin with a comprehensive physical examination where we assess your pets overall health and well-being. We can then determine the appropriate vaccinations, diagnostic testing, diet, and parasite management for your pet.
At Northside Veterinary, we customize vaccine schedules based on your pet's lifestyle and potential for exposure. While we try to minimize the number of vaccines we give, we also understand that there are situations where some pets require more vaccine protection than others. In those circumstances, we prefer to split vaccines in order to reduce reactions and use only thimerosal (mercury) free vaccines. Our doctors and staff will assess your pets risk for disease and design a preventative health care plan with you specific to your pet's needs. Most importantly, we want you to be comfortable with our recommendations and we are happy to discuss all options with you.
