Microchipping is permanent identification that we recommend for all dogs and cats!. Having your pet microchipped will help you be reunited if they become lost!
We recommend Bordatella and Canine Influenza vaccinations for all dogs that are boarded, traveling, groomed., or attend doggy day care or training classes. If your dog is social and goes to dog parks or plays with other dogs in the neighborhood, we also recommend influenza vaccine but bordatella is not needed because they are not inside with other dogs.
A fecal sample should be checked yearly for intestinal parasites. Please bring in a stool sample collected the day of your appointment.
