Microchip ID's

Loosing a pet can be a devastating experience. Microchip IDs offer a highly reliable way of being reunited with your pet should it become lost or stolen.

A microchip ID is a cylindrical device that is implanted under the skin of your pet. Once implanted, the microchip ID will not move around and will not irritate your pet. The microchip ID emits a low-power radiofrequency signal that is read by a special scanner. The microchip ID transmits a unique, preprogrammed identification number that identifies your pet and its owner.

Rabies Vaccines

Rabies is a deadly disease caused by a virus that attacks the nervous system. Once the outward signs of rabies appear, it is nearly always fatal. For this reason it is extremely important that you vaccinate your pets on schedule, so they are never at risk for catching this disease.

Rabies affects only mammals. Reptiles, fish, and birds cannot contract rabies. Rabies is most common in wild animals. Any exposure to wild animals can put your pet at risk if they have not received their rabies vaccination. You should report any suspicious looking animals to your local animal control service. Signs to look for include:

• Fearfulness
• Aggression
• Excessive Drooling
• Difficulty Swallowing
• Staggering
• Seizures

If your pet has been bitten by a wild animal, your pet will need to have another rabies vaccine administered immediately, even if their vaccinations are current. If your pet does not have the proper vaccinations, it may need to be euthanized or kept in isolation for up to six months. For this reason, it is extremely important that you keep your pet’s vaccinations current.

Remember, it is your responsibility and duty as a pet owner to vaccinate against this deadly and dangerous disease.

Spaying and Neutering

Every year, millions of unwanted dogs and cats, including puppies and kittens, are needlessly euthanized.  As a pet owner, it is your responsibility to help put an end to this senseless death and suffering of innocent animals.  By having your dog or cat surgically sterilized, you will do your part to prevent the birth of unwanted puppies and kittens and enhance your pet's health and quality of life.
What to Expect:
During surgical sterilization also commonly known as “spaying” or “neutering”, a veterinarian removes certain reproductive organs. While both spaying and neutering are major surgical procedures, they are also the most common surgeries performed by veterinarians on cats and dogs. Before the procedure, your pet is given a thorough physical examination to ensure that it is in good health. General anesthesia is administered during the surgery and medications are given to minimize pain. You will be asked to keep your pet calm and quiet for a few days after surgery as the incision begins to heal.

Vaccinations

Vaccines are given to your pet to prevent disease.  There are a variety of vaccines required for all different types of animals.  Visit your trusted veterinarian for a schedule of vaccines your pet needs.  Puppies, kittens, and other young animals are especially susceptible to disease and need to have their vaccinations on time to prevent heart-breaking illnesses.  Many vaccines need to be given in a series.  If you have any questions at all about vaccinations for your pet and whether they are up to date, talk to us Pet Care Veterinary Clinic.
