Dog Rabies Shots by Dr. Wilson, Merrick Animal Hosptial

Hi, I’m with Merrick Animal Hospital, and this is Angel. Today, we’re here to discuss wellness exams and prevention for your dog.

Dog Rabies Shots includes a Wellness Exam

What we want to do as far as wellness exams is take a look from the tip of the nose to the tip of the tail. We’re looking for any diseases that may happen as far as her eyes are concerned, ears, or lumps and bumps all along the body that maybe you have missed. We also check the dog’s teeth. We’d like to see you at least twice a year, however, if we can see you once a year, that’s better than nothing.

Dog Rabies Shots, Fleas, Ticks, and Heartworm Prevention

Some of the preventatives that we like to do happen on the outside of the body but also on the inside of the body. On the outside of the body, diseases we want to prevent against are flea and tick diseases. Also, we want to keep away the different mosquitoes. Ways that we can keep away the fleas and ticks would be Bravecto and FRONTLINE Plus. Diseases as far as the inside of the body that I’d like to discuss are heartworm disease, intestinal parasites, and vaccines. As far as heartworm disease, one of the easiest ways is to give an injection of ProHeart, which lasts for at least six months. Another  way to prevent heartworm disease are Heartgard tablets given once a month.

Dog Rabies Shots, Distemper, Lyme, Kennel Cough,

The easiest way to prevent diseases are vaccines. Vaccines can prevent against distemper, rabies, Lyme, kennel cough, all these different things. Vaccines decrease the symptoms but also help reduce the amount of time for recovery from these diseases. Vaccines contain antigens in them that help stimulate an immune response in our pet that help the pet fight off these diseases. When the pet does come in contact with the diseases, we either don’t notice it or it’s easily able to fight against these diseases. Please come by Merrick. We look forward to talking to you a little bit more about your pet and healthcare for your pet. Thank you very much
