Wellness exams & vaccines
At AngelCare Veterinary Hospital, we believe that regular checkups and wellness exams are critical to your pets’ well-being. These wellness exams give us a chance to evaluate the overall health of your pet while also giving us a baseline for their unique health. Not only do these exams keep us up-to-date with your pets’ health, but they also allow us to detect potential problems before they become serious. This thorough checkup gives us vital information to help keep your pet healthy!
Every animal is an individual with their own unique environments, health condition, and immune system. Vaccines have proven to prevent disease but not all patients are treated the same. We closely follow the guidelines set forth but the American Animal Hospital Association (aaha.org) and the American Association of Feline Practitioners. We believe each patient deserves their own risk assessment with regard to vaccinations.
Unfortunately, typical 'adjuvanted' vaccines have been associated with invasive skin tumors in felines and adjuvanted distemper vaccines can cause lethal complications in ferrets.
We recommend and utilize "Purevax" vaccinations for all of our feline and ferret patients. These vaccines utilize canarypox technology to induce immunity without requiring these adjuvants.
