Immunization and Parasite Control

Vaccinations help keep your animals healthy and happy. We carry a full line of vaccines for your pet. We administer vaccines based solely and completely on the needs of your pet. When you adopt a puppy or kitten they should be examined, preferably within 48 hours, in order to assess their needs as soon as possible.

In the case of kittens, we recommend that prior to vaccination, they should be tested for feline leukemia and feline AIDS because certain medications are not effective if the kitten has already developed either of these diseases.

All puppies and kittens should be tested, as early as possible, for intestinal parasites. When it comes to worming, we feel that all puppies and kittens should be de-wormed as early as possible. But, if your pet is at a very young age, we may decide to delay treatment to ensure that your pet's internal organs are mature enough to handle treatment.

If you choose to get a pet from the Humane Society, rescue groups, or take in a stray, or in some other way inherit an older pet, they should be brought in for a full physical exam as soon as possible. If you adopt from Humane society or Friends of Michigan Animal Rescue, we offer a complementary initial physical examination.

Dogs over six months should always be tested for heartworm. The following are commonly used vaccines for dogs and cats:
