Preventative Care

Pets are vulnerable to diseases and the effects of aging. To keep them healthy throughout their life, regular preventive care and vaccinations are essential.

Preventative Care in Canton, IL

Before you expose your puppy or kitten to other pets, we highly recommend you get a complete examination for congenital problems and infectious diseases. Our examinations allow you to schedule vaccinations and give you a chance to discuss proper pet care solutions with our staff. Get in touch with us for any questions or concerns.

Recommended Vaccinations And Examinations

Vaccinations start when your pet is 6-8 weeks old. We advise that your puppy or kitten receives a series of vaccines until they are 15 or 16 weeks of age for a healthy life.

Additional tests for Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) are also recommended for kittens. We also recommend a fecal examination and deworming for intestinal parasites.
