Canine Wellness and Vaccination Plan

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!!

For all dogs, we recommend yearly bloodworm and examinations as well as heartworm testing for those animals traveling.

Heartworm testing is performed in April through June of each year and prevention medication is dispensed to give monthly from June 1st – November 1st.
