Wellness Exams and Vaccinations for Dogs and Cats
Both dogs and cats need annual exams and vaccinations to maintain their health and protect them from various animal diseases. By seeing your pet for regular checkups, we can compare their current condition to the baseline we established at their initial visit. Additionally, we get the opportunity to spot health changes that could become more serious if not treated right away. Early detection is an important way to prevent the progression of illness and successfully treat any issues that do arise.

What an Exam Entails
Dogs and cats receive a thorough, nose-to-tail exam when they visit for their health checkup. We take note of our findings and offer treatment suggestions if we observe any problems. To further assist you in maintaining your pet’s good health at home, we’ll discuss nutrition, exercise, behavior, parasite prevention and much more.
Heartworm testing (for dogs) and fecal testing (for cats and dogs) helps us perform a more complete exam by showing what’s going on inside your pet. Heartworm and fecal tests can alert us to parasite infestations, which can occur quickly if your pet has not been taking their prescribed preventives.
Protecting Your Pet with Vaccinations
Lange Animal Hospital offers core and non-core vaccines to keep pets safe and healthy around infectious diseases. Every pet has a vaccination schedule that accommodates their own lifestyle and medical parameters; we do not take a one-size-fits-all approach to treating our patients.
When your pet receives a vaccination, it gives their immune system a boost and enables them to more effectively fight off disease. Vaccines we typically recommend for dogs and cats include:
- Canine Influenza (H3N2)
- Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis
- Feline Leukemia
