Wellness Care at DC Ranch Animal Hospital

It’s generally recommended that your pet comes to see us about every six months, or at least once annually. Our wellness exams are comprehensive and structured to be personalized to your pet’s specific needs.

A routine wellness exam can include:

  • Physical exam
  • Laboratory testing
  • Parasite prevention measures
  • Vaccinations

Depending on your pet’s health needs, age, and stage of life, our veterinary team will tailor their wellness exam to make sure all of their needs are being met. We want to make sure your pet gets everything they need to live their happiest, healthiest life.

Vaccinations: Prevent & Protect

According to the ASPCA, vaccinations are one of the key ways you can help protect and preserve your pet’s health throughout their lives. Vaccinations both help prevent illness and the spread of disease between pets, just as they do in humans.

During your pet’s routine wellness exams, our Scottsdale veterinarian will recommend a vaccine schedule for them based on their individual risk factors and condition. Included in our recommendations for your pet will be a variety of core vaccinations. Core vaccinations are a class of vaccinations that are considered universally necessary for all pets based on factors like exposure risk, severity, and transmissibility to humans.

Core vaccinations for dogs include:

  • Canine parvovirus
  • Canine hepatitis
  • Distemper
  • Rabies

Core vaccinations for cats include:

  • Feline calicivirus
  • Feline herpes virus type I
  • Rabies
  • Panleukopenia

In addition to the vaccinations listed above, our veterinary team may recommend other vaccinations depending on your pet’s lifestyle, age, and other factors. All of our recommendations are made with your pet’s best interests in mind.

While uncommon, it’s possible your pet may experience a negative reaction to their vaccinations. If you notice that your pet experiences soreness, swelling, fever, or inflammation following a vaccination, let us know right away so that we can help.
