Vaccination / Deworming
Proper and timely vaccination tailored to your pet’s individual needs is vitally important. A “blanket” approach to vaccination can result in some animals being over-vaccinated and others being under-vaccinated. Our veterinarians take the time to discuss your pet’s needs and will guide you in developing an appropriate vaccination protocol. We follow the guidelines of the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine to ensure that our recommendations are current and progressive.
