Promoting Pet Health in Las Vegas NV
Providing preventive health care is one of the most important things a pet owner can do for his or her pet. Desert Inn Animal Hospital is committed to providing the best wellness options for the pets of Las Vegas.
Puppy and Kitten Care
Puppies and kittens grow very quickly and have vastly different nutritional and health needs. Their systems are more fragile than adult pets and require different support and preventive care measures. Visit our puppy and kitten care page for all of our veterinarians’ recommendations to get your puppy or kitten off on the right paw.
Pet Wellness Exams
Early detection and treatment of health issues in pets makes all the difference in a successful recovery. Pets hide their illnesses as a defense mechanism from the times when their species lived in the wild and showing weakness attracted predators, so a pet owner may not be aware of the illness until it is well progressed.
As part of each pet’s annual exam, Desert Inn Animal Hospital also recommends yearly blood work to monitor the functioning of the body’s internal organs. As a pet ages, our veterinarians may recommend blood tests twice per year to head off common ailments related to aging.
Different pets have different risk factors requiring different vaccinations. The veterinarians of Desert Inn Animal Hospital assess each pet’s level of risk and follow the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) guidelines for vaccination.
Typical pet vaccinations for dogs and cats in Las Vegas include:
Rabies—Adult cats are given the rabies vaccine every year.
Feline leukemia—Feline leukemia is one of the most common causes of illness and death diagnosed in domestic cats. It attacks the immune system and is highly contagious. Adult cats are vaccinated for feline leukemia annually.
Keeping pets free of intestinal parasites is an important part of a pet’s overall health. Desert Inn Animal Hospital recommends every pet is screened for parasites yearly and treated with dewormers as necessary.
Desert Inn Animal Hospital is committed to extending the quality and length of life for the pets of Las Vegas. If you have any questions about your pet’s health, please contact our friendly staff and doctors.
