The first documented vaccination was given in 1796.  While the production of vaccines as changed over the years,  the necessity to vaccinate remains consistent for health and disease prevention.

As part of your pet's annual exam, vaccination protocols will be thoroughly explained.  Dr. Wisser will create a vaccination plan tailored to the needs and risks for each individual patient.

Rabies vaccination is required by New York State law in cats, dogs and ferrets (in addition to other larger species) because contraction of the rabies virus is fatal.  The rabies vaccination is recommended for almost every patient.


Preventative Care

Preventative care typically includes incorporating medications into your pet's care that will protect them from insect and parasite infestation as well as the illnesses transmitted by these pests.  While there are many good products on the market today, Dr. Lauren recommends Bravecto given monthly for protection from Lyme disease, Anaplasma infections, Ehrlichiosis, and Bartonella.  She also recommends Interceptor Plus to prevent Heartworms and intestinal parasites like hookworms, roundworms, whipworms and tapeworms.  These are cost effective, palatable chews which should be part of every pet's monthly routine.


Preventative medications are stocked in hospital or can be ordered through our online pharmacy.  Click here to access Vetsource Pharmacy.
