Community Veterinary Clinic: New X-ray Suite

There is big news at Community Veterinary Clinic!  We are excited about the construction of a new X-ray suite, to house a new radiographic unit.  This newly purchased unit is in our Sidney clinic.

In interviewing Dr. Current, he said, “My clients expect exceptional care, which necessitates top notch diagnostic tools.  This machine will enhance our ability to diagnose and treat our patients early and accurately.”

 We are proud to upgrade our hospital with premium equipment, while still offering our clients the “best value in the area.”

Ask about our new X-ray suite, or come for a hospital tour!

Great Doctors, Facilities, Compassion, & Care

Puppies!

Look at these adorable puppies!  Both of these cuties are patients at our St. Paris location.  They each visited the clinic for their vaccinations. 

 

Vaccines are very important to protect against viral infections.  Here at Community Veterinary Clinic, we start the puppies out with their first vaccination around the age of six to eight weeks.  Then, the second vaccine takes place at ten to twelve weeks.  The final vaccines are given at fourteen to sixteen weeks, concluding the puppy vaccination schedule.

Puppy Vaccination Schedule:

6-8 weeks:  DHLP Parvo-Corona

10-12 weeks:  DHLP Parvo-Corona              Bordetella (Kennel Cough):  if groomed, boarded, or in class

14-16 weeks:  DHLP Parvo- Corona & Rabies Vaccine       Bordetella (Kennel Cough):  if groomed, boarded, or in class

At every vaccine appointment, the physical exam is important to check the overall health of your precious pet.  It is also recommended to have the doctor do a simple, intestinal parasite screen to check for worms, which can also be transmitted to humans.  Last but certainly not least, be sure to start your puppy on heart worm prevention and continue to give monthly for the duration of your pet’s life.

**We want to hear from you.  Do you have any questions regarding puppy vaccinations?  Be sure to “leave a comment” at the bottom of the post.  In the future, you will see a couple of posts further discussing heart worms and intestinal parasites, so stay tuned!  Anything else you would like to know more about?  Let us know!**
