Fairfax Station Pet Vaccinations
At Little River Veterinary Clinic, caring for animals is not just a business; it’s our passion! We’re animal lovers too, which is why we treat your precious pet like he’s one of our very own. We’ve proudly served the community of Fairfax Station for more than 50 years. Our practice first opened its doors in 1961, and we’ve been providing exemplary veterinary care and customer service to our patients and clients ever since.
As part of our commitment to high-quality veterinary medicine, we take a particular interest in preventative care. Having a thorough disease prevention plan in place is vital to keeping your pet healthy. We recommend yearly examinations so we can know your pet’s baseline of health and detect conditions as they develop. We also recommend keeping your pet fully vaccinated in order to keep them as healthy as possible.
Why We Provide Fairfax Station Pet Vaccinations
Pet vaccinations are a proven means of disease prevention. Keeping your pet current on their vaccinations will protect them from many viruses and diseases, including rabies, Lyme, Bordetella, and feline leukemia. We make sure that our vaccination recommendations are tailored to your pet’s specific needs. One size does not necessarily fit all when it comes to pet vaccinations in Fairfax Station. After examining your pet and asking questions about their lifestyle and medical requirements, we will create a customized vaccination schedule.
The canine influenza outbreak of 2017 continues, and we want your dog to stay healthy. We offer the bivalent flu vaccine, which protects against both the H3N2 and H3N8 strains of the virus, and requires just one booster following the first injection.
Symptoms of canine influenza include coughing, fever, lethargy, and nasal and ocular discharge. Some carriers of the virus do not exhibit any symptoms, which is why we recommend the flu vaccine for all patients that are likely to encounter other dogs. It’s always better to be safe than sorry!
