Rabies 1yr/3yr Booster
(Massachusetts law requires all dogs and cats whether indoor or outdoor are to be vaccinated for Rabies. The first vaccine is always considered a 1 year vaccine. It is necessary to recieve the next rabies booster prior to the due date of the 1 year recieved in order for the next to be considered a 3 year vaccine. Once your pet is on a 3 year vaccine, it will always be done as a 3 year from that point on.)

Accuplex (Blood test for heartworm, lyme disease, anaplasmosis, and ehrlichiosis)
Heartworm Preventative
Fecal Examination
Flea/Tick Preventative
Please note that our hospital requires a yearly heartworm test in order for heartworm prevention to be dispensed. All diseases that this test detects are treatable and can greatly impact your dog's health if left untreated. The only way for us to ensure that your pet receives proper treatment is to test yearly and/or when one of these diseases is suspected.

Heartworm prevention is recommended year round to protect your pet. Our hospital chooses to use primarily Interceptor Plus, which comes in a once a month flavored chewable. Interceptor Plus prevents heartworm disease and controls roundworm, hookworm, tapeworm and whipworm infestation in dogs. Please call for pricing.

Flea/Tick prevention is also recommended year round, as flea and tick infestations are much easier to prevent than to treat once established. Fleas can not only cause itchy suffering and rashes to both you and your pets, but they can also transmit tapeworms as well. In severe cases, fleas and ticks can cause anemia, causing severe health complications for your pet. Ticks can transmit Lyme Disease, as well as the lesser known diseases ehrlichiosis and anaplasmosis. All of these tick diseases can cause severe pain in the joints, fever, lethargy and deterioration to the organs and joints if left untreated. We have many products available for flea/tick prevention including Frontline, Bravecto, Revolution, Cheristin and the Seresto collar. Comfortis (chewable tablet) and Cheristin (topical) can be used for fleas only and starts working within a half hour for immediate relief.
