Vaccines

At Boones Creek Animal Hospital, we offer all vaccinations your pet will need to stay happy and healthy. We are geared to care for each individual patient and administer vaccines based solely on the needs of your pet.

As mentioned on the puppies and kittens page, they should both be assessed as early as possible. In the case of kittens, we recommend testing for feline leukemia and FIV before vaccinating. Certain medications are not effective if the kitten has already developed one of these diseases. All puppies and kittens are tested for intestinal parasites. We feel that all puppies and kittens should be dewormed, but if it is at a very young age, we may decide to wait to ensure that your pet’s internal organs are mature enough to handle treatment.

If you chose to adopt a new pet, take in a stray, or in some other way inherit a pet, it should be brought in for a full physical exam as soon as possible.
