Q: Should I get pet insurance? 

A: Every pet owner should consider pet insurance even if you believe you have enough money to cover veterinary costs. Pet insurance could still save you thousands of dollars if your pet gets sick or injured. Pet Insurance could prevent you from having to take on lasting debt or forgo veterinary care. 

 

Q: Does my pet need a dental every year?

A: Dogs and cats do require routine dental care, but not necessarily dental cleanings every year.  The current recommendation is regular oral exams at least once year by a veterinarian, ideally during your pet's annual wellness checkup.

 

Q: Can I give my pet aspirin?

A: It is not recommended to give any over the counter medications to your pet without speaking to your veterinarian. Veterinarians do prescribe aspirin for dogs and cat, but aspirin has some serious side effects that pet owners need to be aware of.

 

Q: Does my pet need a heartworm test every year?

A: The American Heartworm Society recommends annual testing, even when your dog is on heartworm prevention year round, to ensure that the prevention program is working. Heartworm medications are highly effective, but dogs can still become infected. If you miss just one dose of a monthly medication or give it late, it can leave your dog unprotected.

Q: Is it important to vaccinate my pet?

A: Yes! Pets should be vaccinated to protect them from many highly contagious and deadly diseases. Experts agree that widespread use of vaccines within the last century has prevented death and disease in millions of animals. Even though some formerly common diseases have now become uncommon, vaccination is still highly recommended because these serious disease agents continue to be present in the environment.

Q: Which vaccines should my pet receive?

A: When designing a vaccination program, veterinarians consider the pet's lifestyle, related disease risks, and the characteristics of available vaccines. "Core vaccines" (e.g., rabies, feline panleukopenia, feline viral rhinotracheitis, feline calicivirus infection, canine distemper, canine parvovirus infection, and canine hepatitis) are recommended for most pets. Additional "non-core vaccines" (e.g., feline leukemia, canine kennel cough and other vaccines) may be appropriate based on the pet's particular needs.
