Preventative Care

Preventative care is important for cats and dogs because it helps to prevent or detect health problems early, which can lead to better outcomes and lower costs for treatment. It can also help to improve the overall quality of life for your pet and ensure that they are happy and healthy.

Protection & Prevention

At Eagleson Vet Clinic, we know the importance of preventive care for our patients. We offer wellness exams as a routine part of our services. Our veterinarians will examine your pet's health. The exam includes checking vital signs, evaluating their physical condition, and discussing concerns.

Our exams include preventative measures such as vaccinations, parasite control, and nutrition counseling. These quotas can help ensure your pet remains healthy and happy for years.

Please don't hesitate to contact us to schedule your pet's next wellness exam. Or if you have any questions about our preventive care services. We look forward to providing the best possible care for your furry friend.

Vaccines

Vaccinations are an important aspect of preventive healthcare for pets. They help protect animals from a variety of serious and life-threatening diseases. Vaccines can help prevent diseases from spreading to other pets, and also to their humans. It is also important to keep track of your pet’s vaccination records and update them as needed. Vaccinating your pets is one of the responsibilities you can do to keep them healthy.

Puppy Vaccinations

Distemper(Core)

Vaccination is a preventative against diseases that attacks the respiratory, gastrointestinal, and nervous system. Distemper disease is an airborne virus that spreads through sneezing/coughing and shared water/food bowls.

Hepatitis(Core)

Hepatitis attacks puppies’ livers, kidneys, spleen, lungs, and eyes. Possible signs of infections are a slight fever, vomiting, jaundice, stomach enlargement, and pain around the liver.

Parainfluenza(Core)

Parainfluenza is a contagious respiratory virus that is the most common pathogen of infectious tracheobronchitis. Common signs to look out for are dry/moist coughs, nasal discharge, lethargic behaviour, and decreased/no appetite.

Parvovirus(Core)

Parvovirus is a high-risk pathogen for puppies under the age of 6 months or dogs who are not fully vaccinated. The pathogen attacks their gastrointestinal systems and causes loss of appetite, vomiting, and diarrhea. In extreme cases when left alone will lead to dehydration and can be fatal after 72h, depending on the dog.

Rabies(Core)

Rabies disease is the most commonly known disease that affects mammals all over the world. Unfortunately, there is no cure for rabies and treatment leads to humane euthanasia. It is contracted through saliva from the infected entering the bloodstream of the victim(the infected biting the victim). In cases where you believe your cat possibly got bit by an infected animal, we recommended seeing a veterinarian at the earliest convenience, getting the rabies vaccination if not already, and following the veterinarian’s care instructions.

Bordetella(Optional)

Kennel cough is a common disease that arises after visits to a kennel that can be prevented from the annual bordetella vaccination. Symptoms that will arise are severe coughing fits that lead to vomiting white foam. In extreme cases can lead to seizures and possibly death.

Leptospirosis(Optional)

Leptospirosis is a bacterial disease that is contracted through ingesting soil and water sources. It causes high fevers, gastrointestinal issues(vomiting, pain, diarrhea, loss of appetite), lethargic behaviour, stiffness, jaundice, muscle pain, infertility as well as kidney failure. Preventions for your puppy will protect your health as well,  this disease can be contracted by humans as well as canines. It is treatable with antibiotics.

Lyme(Optional)

Lyme disease is a tick-borne disease. The bacteria that the ticks spread is called spirochete and it causes lameness, swollen lymph nodes, fever, and loss of appetite. Left untreated can affect the heart, kidneys, and joints and will eventually lead to neurological issues. Also can be treated with antibiotics, but there are cases of relapse.

Kitten Vaccinations

Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis(Core)

Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, also known as herpesvirus, primarily attacks the respiratory system of unprotected kittens & adult cats. Infected cats’ symptoms include nasal and eye discharge, sneezing and coughing, loss of appetite, and hair loss. We recommend seeking veterinary aid as soon as possible; this disease is contagious and leads to dire consequences.

Calicivirus(Core)

Commonly contacted in high-volume feline facilities such as rescues, the feline calicivirus spreads through discharge from the eyes, nasal pathways, and the mouth that is directly or indirectly(from a contaminated object) contracted from an infected feline. Due to their fragile immune system at a young age, kittens and young adult cats have the highest risk when involving FCV. Veterinarians recommend blood work and chest radiographs to properly diagnose this virus.

Panleukopenia(Core)

Due to the high volume of vaccinated felines, the feline panleukopenia virus is no longer the leading cause of the feline mortality rate. Symptoms are vomiting, diarrhea, anorexia, lethargic-like behavior, and dehydration. Most positive cases are fatal. But speak to one of our veterinarians for the potential treatment depending on the severity of your case.

Rabies(Core)

Rabies disease is the most commonly known disease that affects mammals all over the world. Unfortunately, there is no cure for rabies and treatment leads to humane euthanasia. It is contracted through saliva from the infected entering the bloodstream of the victim(the infected biting the victim). In cases where you believe your cat possibly got bit by an infected animal, we recommended seeing a veterinarian at the earliest convenience, getting the rabies vaccination if not already, and following the veterinarian’s care instructions.

Feline Leukemia Virus(Optional)​

The leukemia virus attacks unvaccinated cats and sheds through saliva, nasal discharge, urine, feces, and milk of infected cats. Main clinic signs are loss of appetite, enlarged lymph nodes, pale gums, respiratory infections, diarrhea, eye infection, and seizures in serious situations. A blood test is the main procedure for proper diagnosis. It will either confirm or rule it out.

Parasite Preventatives

Parasites can become life-threatening to your cat or dog if left untreated. Nexgard Spectra, a monthly chewable tablet, will help prevent parasitic diseases.
Insects and Arachnids
Fleas are external parasites that feed on the blood of birds and mammals. If left untreated, fleas can quickly spread throughout your household.
These external parasites consume the blood of mammals and are responsible for many conditions in people and pets.

Ear mites are tiny parasitic insects that can infest the ears of dogs and cats. Mites live on the wax and oils in the ear canal and can cause itching, redness, and a foul-smelling discharge.

Worms

This thread-like parasitic roundworm is spread through mosquito bites and makes its home in the heart, lungs, and blood vessels of infected animals.

These parasites live in the digestive tract of cats and dogs where they feed on the pet’s blood. Hookworms can lead to anemia and other serious conditions.

This worm lives in your pet’s intestines and feeds on their partially digested intestinal contents. They rob your pet of the nutrients they need to stay healthy.
Tapeworms are spread through the ingestion of infected fleas during grooming. These hook-like parasitic worms live and grow in your pet’s intestines.
Whipworms are spread through the ingestion of soil that has been in contact with an infected dog’s feces. Whipworms pose a serious health risk to dogs.
