WELLNESS AND VACCINATIONS

Preventive Care for Your Pet

Yearly Wellness Exams

Wellness examinations are the same for your pet as the yearly physical you receive from your doctor. It’s an opportunity for our doctors to do a comprehensive check-up on your pet.

During our wellness examination, your veterinarian will check your pet's:
  • Heart
  • Lungs
  • Eyes
  • Ears
  • Skin
  • Teeth & Gums
  • Joints & Muscles
  • Abdomen & Lymph Nodes
The doctors and technicians will also ask some questions about your pets diet, behavior,  and any other concerns that you may have about your pets health. The physical exam and the information you provide us will help address and detect any health issues. Along with your help we can be proactive and promote a healthy lifestyle for your furry loved one. Some important things you can do to keep your pet healthy are regular yearly exams, appropriate vaccinations and deworming, heartworm test and preventative, senior wellness exams/bloodwork and flea and tick preventative when needed.  We strongly encourage that during your pets examination  you take the opportunity to voice any concerns and/or questions you have so that we may address them.

Immunization Protocols

With a variety of infectious diseases in dogs and cats vaccinations are the number one way you can protect your best friend from serious health threats. Our veterinarians can create an individualized immunization protocol for your pet based their activities and lifestyle.

Vaccines for Your Dog

  • Distemper/Parvo combo Vaccine (DA2PP): This combination vaccine protects against Distemper, Adenovirus, Parainfluenza and Parvovirus.
  • Rabies: Rabies virus is a fatal neurological disease and all warm-blooded animals (including humans) are susceptible to infection.
  • Bordetella ("Kennel Cough"): The bordetella bacteria causes an extremely contagious upper respiratory infection and in the Billings area kennel cough is very common in all places where group of dogs gather .  Our veterinarians strongly recommend this vaccine is given before your dog goes to daycare, a boarding facility, a grooming appointment and dog parks.
  • Canine Influenza (only recommended if during a dog flu outbreak)

Vaccines for Your Cat

  • Feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, chlamydia, and panleukopenia (FVRCPC): Commonly referred to as a "distemper vaccine," this combination vaccine protects against feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, chlamydia, and panleukopenia.
  • Rabies: Rabies virus is a fatal neurological disease and all warm-blooded animals (including humans) are susceptible to infection.

Other vaccines for cats:

Heartworm and Flea & Tick Prevention

Our doctors recommend a yearly heartworm test and preventative.  Also spring is primarily tick season so it is a good idea to stock up on flea and tick products. 

We carry a variety of products for heartworm and flea and ticks.  We now have the new BRAVECTO which is an oral flea and tick control product.  Ask a member of our team to recommend a product that is right for your pet.

Senior Pet Care

How do you know if you have a senior pet?  If your pet is age 7 or older than we consider them to be in their senior years. Whether you adopted an older pet or have a longtime family member we recommend and encourage you to take advantage of the advances in veterinary medicine to ensure that they stay happy and healthy throughout their senior years. 

Our doctors and staff will help you develop a health care plan that works for you and your pet no matter your budget or busy schedule.
