Health and Vaccine Evaluation

All Creatures Animal Hospital strongly believes in preventing disease and illness through regular veterinary care and vaccinations. As such, we offer the Health and Vaccine Evaluation, which is designed to keep healthy pets in good health. For the convenient price of $55, your pet will benefit from a full physical exam in addition to the following core vaccinations.

For Dogs:

DHPPC: The DHPPC vaccination builds immunity against a variety of illnesses, including distemper, hepatitis, parainfluenza, parvovirus, and coronavirus – all of which are very severe and contagious. It is one of the most-recommended vaccinations available.

Bordatella:  Commonly known as “kennel cough,” Bordatella is common in dogs who have stayed in kennels, visited groomers, or been in other areas with a large number of dogs. Bordatella is characterized by a hacking cough, retching, watery nasal discharge, lethargy, and fever.

For Cats:

FeLV: The feline leukemia virus (FeLV) affects a little more than 2% of cats in the United States. In addition to causing anemia, FeLV can also cause weight loss, respiratory issues, gastrointestinal disease, and cancer, among other health problems.

FVRCP: Similar to the DHPPC vaccination for dogs, the FVRCP combines several imperative vaccinations for cats, including feline viral rhinotracheitis, feline calicivirus, and panleukopenia, the cause of cat distemper.

Cats and Dogs:

Rabies: A dangerous viral disease with no cure, rabies can be spread from infected animals to humans through bites. Because rabies almost always causes death in humans, most states require this vaccine to be administered to registered pets.
