Prevention is about peace of mind – the kind that comes from knowing that you are proactively monitoring the health and wellness of the pets you love. Banfield would love to partner with you in the ongoing care of your pet.
Optimum Wellness Plans® are yearly packages of discounted services that make proactive pet health care easy and affordable.
When it comes to your pet's health, there's no such thing as a dumb question. Search questions real clients have submitted to our popular Ask a Vet Q&A series, and then submit a question of your own.
The vaccines schedule will depend on your individual pet. The recommended vaccines depend on where you live as well as the environment that your puppy is exposed to. Certain diseases are more prevalent in different areas of the country.
The timing of the vaccines will also depend on your community and your pet’s environment. The veterinarian who gave the vaccines can let you know what vaccines are recommended for your pet. You can also discuss flea prevention with your veterinarian.
I generally recommend flea treatments for dogs who go to dog parks. I highly recommend that you continue heartworm prevention year round. Heartworms can be transmitted by a single mosquito bite. Heartworms can cause serious disease and can even be fatal in certain cases. It is much easier and cheaper to prevent than it is to treat.
