For dogs and cats that have external parasites we recommend Vetcra™ 3D. This is a topical liquid treatment that an owner can apply to the “scruff” area of their pet’s back. We can sell this to you over the counter according to the weight of your animal.
Yes, you can get a Rabies vaccine done at our clinic which is the first step to licensing your dog. Deschutes County runs the licensing program and to receive a license through the County you will need a current Rabies vaccine. For more information on dog licensing call the clinic or you can visit: Deschutes County Website.
We can often schedule you and your pet an appointment the same day or next day to come in for a visit. Sometimes we will have to schedule a visit a few days out. If you are coming in for a routine surgery, we can often schedule you the same week or the following week for the procedure. Please call us at (541) 382-0741 to schedule an appointment.
The best way to determine if a pet has internal parasites is to bring in a stool sample that we can send off to our lab. We normally get results back the following day and we can let you know if your pet has any parasites. We can then prescribe a deworming medication to resolve the problem.
Puppies and kittens normally need a series or course of vaccines when they are young to help build up their immunities. They normally need three sets of shots given over a three month period. After that they need immunizations on a yearly or three year basis (depending on the duration of the particular vaccine). Ask us about recommendations for your specific pet.
If you have vaccine records from another clinic, shelter or breeder we will be happy to help determine what you will need and when you will need it. We can even send you reminders when your pet is due for vaccines or exams. Please call us for more information at (541) 382-0741.
Any animal that needs a medication has to be seen by a doctor and diagnosed before the doctor can legally prescribe any medication. In turn, an animal will need to be seen by one of our doctors before we can send them home with any medication.
