Pet health begins with preventive healthcare. We recommend annual wellness examinations for young to early middle-aged pets. Semi-annual veterinary exams are recommended on senior dogs and cats over 7 years of age. Semi-annual exams ensure that your pet’s health is always professionally monitored. Twice-yearly exams are needed to diagnose harmful diseases early as pets age much more rapidly than humans. The earlier it’s caught, the more successful treatment is, in keeping your pet healthy and happy. Annual and Semi-annual Wellness exams are the most important aspect of pet health. Vaccinations are of course important, but examinations are vital to the longevity of our pets.

Young animals are like children; it’s a never-ending job keeping them safe and happy. Vaccinations are the best weapon against many viral and bacterial infections. Here in Michigan, we aim to prevent deadly diseases like Canine Distemper and Parvovirus, Lyme Disease, Feline Panleukopenia, respiratory disease, Feline Leukemia, as well as Rabies for both species.
Vaccinations are most important for puppies and kittens because their immune systems are still developing and need protection to stay healthy. Vaccinations are vital to pet health and should be administered to every animal.
At Powers Veterinary Clinic we will help you with every step of the vaccination process, including:
- Pet examination and introductory vaccinations
- Necessary booster shots
- Vaccine education
