It is hard to decipher all the conflicting information out there about vaccinations especially when new information is constantly emerging and changing recommended protocols. The consensus amongst veterinary professionals at this time is that NO ONE protocol fits every situation. There are vaccinations that every dog/cat needs (CORE) and there are vaccinations that only some dogs/cats need to be based on lifestyle (NON-CORE). We recommend core vaccinations for all our patients and non-core vaccinations based on lifestyle risk. We do offer 3-year vaccinations - to be eligible for a 3-year vaccination the pet must be a minimum of 15 months old and proof of prior vaccination provided. Core vaccinations for dogs are Rabies, Leptospirosis,and DHPP (Distemper-Parvo aka "5 way"). Core vaccinations for kittens are Rabies, Feline Upper Respiratory (FVCRP), and Feline Leukemia. We do offer but strongly discourage against only doing Feline Upper Respiratory (FVCRP) in kittens. Core vaccinations for adult cats are Rabies and Feline Upper Respiratory (FVCRP). We will discuss the non-core vaccinations and if they are appropriate for your pet during your visit. We ask that when possible for clients to please bring in any records on their pet from their previous veterinarian as well as a list of any current medications, tests, and/or any records that could assist us in helping your pet.

Puppies and kittens should be started on vaccinations at 6-8 weeks of age and receive vaccinations every 3 weeks until a minimum of 13 weeks (kittens) and 16 weeks (puppies). It is very critical to follow this protocol to help avoid devastating and also fatal diseases. If your pet has a history of vaccination reactions please let us known in advance, premedication will be required prior to vaccination.
Heartworm/Intestinal Worm Tests and Care
Intestinal worms can cause significant illness and even death in our pets. Hookworms which are one of the more serious intestinal worm that can cause weight loss, diarrhea, vomiting, anemia, and even death. These serious parasites are developing resistance to our common dewormers and we must be proactive in monitoring. Thus, we strongly recommend intestinal worm checks every 6 months minimum.
Heartworms are carried by mosquitoes and, thus, all it takes is one mosquito bite to become infected. Mosquitos are known to come indoors and are active all year long in this area. Thus, we strongly recommend that all dogs - indoors & outdoors - be heartworm tested annually and kept on heartworm prevention all year long. We recommend considering heartworm prevention for cats as well although it is less prevalent in felines than in canines. In addition, due to the high number of parasites in this area and suspected resistance occurring sporadically around the country , we STRONGLY recommend semi-annual or, at minimum, annual fecal examinations for intestinal parasites.

Spay & Neuter (Limited Availability)
At Coastal Community Vet Clinic we strive to help our community in fighting against the number of unwanted puppies and kittens born every day. We do our best to keep the costs affordable and hope that pet owners will take advantage of the low-cost services offered. We encourage our clients to spay and neuter their pets, since not only does this help with keeping pets from having unwanted litters but there are also many health benefits your pet will gain as well as it helps in curbing many behavioral issues that unaltered pets usually have that tend to go away after they have been spayed or neutered. Currently our surgeon is experiencing wrist problems that limit her surgery time so we have very limited dog spay appointments available - please consider one of the other area spay/neuter clinics for a more timely appointment.
