Hamilton Road Animal Hospital specializes in providing complete vaccination services for your pet. We can provide your beloved, furry companion with the essential pet vaccinations in Columbus.
PREVENTIVE CARE VACCINATIONS:
Dogs: All dogs should be vaccinated against Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Parainfluenza, and Parvovirus, combined into 1 injection and against Rabies. Puppies require a series of vaccinations starting at 6 to 8 weeks of age and continuing until they are 16 to 18 weeks old. We recommend annual revaccinations for all dogs. Additional vaccinations may be suggested if your pet goes to training classes or dog shows or in other special situations.
Cats: All cats should be vaccinated against Feline Distemper, the Contagious Upper Respiratory Infections and against Rabies. Kittens require a series of injections starting at 6 to 8 weeks of age and continuing until they are 12 to 14 weeks old. We also recommend vaccinating your cat or kitten against Feline Leukemia. An initial series of 2 injections are needed. We suggest annual revaccinations for all cats.
Regular animal vaccination in Columbus is essential for your pet’s health and safety. We recommend scheduling the following vaccinations when you first welcome a new pet into your home and at regular intervals afterwards.
PARASITES: Both cats and dogs can become infected with a variety of intestinal parasites. An annual stool or fecal analysis is recommended. Call us in advance to set up your appointment for examination and vaccinations.
HEARTWORMS: Heartworms, a blood parasite, are transmitted from dog to dog by mosquitoes. Every dog should be heartworm tested annually. Fortunately, most dogs are found to be heartworm-free and can be started on preventive medication. Dogs that are found to be heartworm positive should be treated immediately. We also recommend heartworm preventative medicine for cats.
Keep your senior pet healthy and happy by bringing your pet in to our Columbus animal clinic for a senior wellness exam. Most dogs and cats can be considered senior pets when they reach 7 years of age. Large dogs and giant breeds are considered to be senior pets at just 5 years of age. Pets reaching their senior years need quality medical care and attention as their physical body ages. A senior pet wellness examination will determine your pet’s state of health and how to best care for your senior pet.
