Frequently Asked Questions

Heartworm preventatives are not 100% effective. Sometimes a dose gets missed, spit out, vomited or is just not adequately absorbed, resulting in inadequate protection. Heartworm testing is a safeguard against your pet suffering from heartworm disease without your knowledge. Furthermore, giving some types of heartworm preventative to a dog that has heartworm infection may actually result in a shock-like reaction due to a rapid kill of immature heartworms.
Puppies and kittens usually reach puberty around six months of age. After this time female dogs usually come into heat twice a year; on average the heat cycle takes about three weeks to complete. Female cats are different; they come into heat seasonally. Cats normally cycle at approximately three week intervals during the spring, summer, and fall.
The early series of vaccinations insures a good level of protective immunity in a young puppy or kitten. This is the age when they are most susceptible to many contagious diseases. A series of vaccines are given because it is unknown exactly when your puppy’s or kitten’s antibodies, received from it’s mom, are dissipating. At this time their own immune system must be stimulated with the vaccines to protect themselves. This loss of mom’s antibodies generally occurs somewhere between 6 and 12 weeks of age. Adult pets will usually need yearly vaccine boosters, but will not need to repeat the series.
The incision should be clean and dry with no discharge. It should be warm but not hot and not exceedingly painful to a light touch. There will be a slight amount of swelling, but not so much that the skin has swollen around the sutures. The area around the sutures should be pink, not beet red. Do not allow your pet to lick any incision. Please call or make an appointment to come in if you have concerns or questions about the incision.
