There has been coverage in the news media regarding a "mystery" respiratory illness affecting dogs out west, and serious concerns about the health of dogs in our area. We feel a need to address these concerns for our dog community as a whole and for individual pets and their owners.
Pet Wellness Services
Your pet's yearly wellness examination at Greenpoint Veterinary Hospital includes our commitment to:
Deworming and Intestinal Parasite Scans
Dangerous parasites are always present in the environment. We recommend regular checks as the best way to prevent parasitic disease and the transmission of intestinal parasites to your pet and your family members. We carry Sentinel (monthly oral chew), Revolution (monthly topical application), and a variety of deworming medications.
Regular Blood Testing
With a complete physical, the doctor may recommend a full blood workup. Not only can a chemistry panel and blood count identify the presence of underlying disease processes, but these tests help create a baseline should your pet become ill between regular examinations.
Heartworm disease is a serious, life-threatening illness affecting dogs and cats. Mosquitoes spread the disease by injecting the parasite into your pet at the time of the bite. Clinical symptoms of heartworm disease develop very slowly and early symptoms include lack of energy, exercise intolerance, coughing, and difficulty breathing. Because heartworm disease is increasing in frequency and is a serious and deadly disease, we recommend that your dog be tested annually. Heartworm disease prevention is simple and effective.
If you would like to have your pet tested for heartworm disease, or if you would like additional information on how best to protect your pet and your family from these dangerous parasites, please call Greenpoint Veterinary Hospital today for an appointment.
We tailor vaccine protocols to your individual pet, taking into account benefits and risks as well as environment and health status. We vaccinate on an extended 3 year schedule whenever appropriate, and our philosophy is to vaccinate only as often as is needed based on the lifestyle and exposure to each disease for each individual pet. Our goal is to minimize the number of vaccines given, while still ensuring protection against potentially fatal diseases.
Our team of veterinarians and technicians follow the guidelines set forth by the American Animal Hospital Association canine vaccination task force and the American Association of Feline Practitioners.
Our core vaccines for healthy dogs include:

Vaccinations are not only safe and effective, they are an important and fundamental aspect of your pet's preventive healthcare plan. Diseases that once were relatively common and fatal to pets are now easily preventable through vaccination. Vaccinating your pet against Rabies helps protect you and your family from this deadly disease.
