Our routine wellness examinations and vaccine protocols here at Snelgrove Veterinary Services are an important part of your pet's overall health. They are tailored to your pet's individual needs, while also taking into consideration the specific health concerns that we find prevalent in Brampton and the surrounding areas of Caledon, Georgetown and Mississauga.
A routine examination with one of our skilled veterinarians includes a full head-to-tail physical examination, as well as the following recommended vaccinations:
Canine Distemper Virus
Routine vaccinations for cats include:
Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis
Feline Leukemia (optional but strongly recommended for cats that go outdoors)
Normal for Your Pet to Display Some Symptoms
The immunization process has an impact on some animals, though most animals feel and display no symptoms. Others may appear fatigued, eat less, have a slight fever or show mild pain at the vaccination site. All these symptoms are normal. However, if these symptoms persist for more than 24 hours, please call us.
Allergic Reactions Should Be Treated Immediately
Occasionally, serious allergic reactions can occur and will usually develop within 30 minutes to a few hours following vaccination. If your animal displays any symptoms that persist or appear serious such as: vomiting, diarrhea, facial swelling, hives, excessive scratching, or difficulty breathing, you should contact Snelgrove Veterinary Services immediately.
Vaccination Titres are available for older animals and for those who would prefer to vaccinate their pet less frequently.
Keep Your Pet Healthy with Regular Preventive Care
Many of the medical technologies that help humans live longer and healthier lives are now available to your pet. With a few simple tests, Snelgrove Veterinary Services can get a wealth of information about your pet’s health! Like you, our greatest concern is the well-being of your pet.
Simple blood, urine and fecal tests can provide us with informative data on your pet’s health. All of these tests are similar and just as important as the tests your doctor performs yearly. It is important to understand that although your pet seems healthy (and very well may be), these tests can provide us with a baseline if your pet ever becomes sick.
CBC - Complete Blood Count
Provides us with an accurate assessment of your pet’s red blood cells, white blood cells, platelet count and packed cell volume. These cells provide us with details of anemia, infections, auto-immune diseases and blood cancers.
Detects kidney disease, pancreatic dysfunction, liver concerns, diabetes, electrolytes and cholesterol.
Accurately diagnose an over-active or under-active thyroid.
Diagnose bladder infections, tumors and stones.
Recognizes internal parasites, protozoa and oocysts.
During your next annual examination, ask us about preventive care for your pet.
