Wellness Care

At Murlen Animal Clinic, we provide comprehensive wellness exams for pets of all sizes, breeds, and ages.

We will also discuss additional recommended services, such as dental cleanings and diagnostic testing. If any areas of concern are identified, we will work together to develop a personalized treatment plan. Schedule a wellness exam with us today for your pet’s well-being.

Vaccinations

Vaccinations are a crucial part of your pet’s healthcare plan, starting from a young age. At Murlen Animal Clinic, we recommend vaccinations for pets at a young age, with regular boosters throughout their life. By vaccinating your pet, you can prevent many common diseases. For canines, core vaccines include rabies and DAPP, while for felines, it includes rabies and FVRCP. Depending on your location and your pet’s exposure, we may also recommend optional non-core vaccines such as leptospirosis, bordetella, parainfluenza, lyme disease, and canine influenza. Our knowledgeable healthcare team will help you create a comprehensive vaccine schedule tailored to your pet’s age, breed, lifestyle, and environment. We will also address any possible side effects and provide guidance on how to manage them. Protect your pet’s health through vaccinations at Murlen Animal Clinic.

Parasite Prevention and Control

At Murlen Animal Clinic, we understand the health risks that parasites pose to both your pets and your family. We recommend a year-round prevention routine to ensure everyone’s safety. Common parasites, including fleas, ticks, heartworms, and intestinal worms, can be effectively controlled through preventive measures. During your pet’s annual exam, we will conduct a comprehensive physical exam, fecal test, and blood test to detect and address any parasite issues. Even if your pet is on year-round prevention, these tests are essential for early detection, even before visible symptoms occur. Our knowledgeable healthcare team will assist you in developing a personalized prevention plan based on your lifestyle. You can choose from monthly oral medication, topical treatments or longer-term injectable treatments to keep your pets safe. We will discuss the most effective method that suits your family’s needs. Ensure your pet’s protection from parasites by following our prevention plan at Murlen Animal Clinic.

Puppy and Kitten Care

Murlen Animal Clinic is dedicated to providing the best possible start for your puppy or kitten. Schedule their first appointment within the first few weeks of bringing them home to meet our team and address any questions or concerns you may have. We believe in comprehensive care for your new family member, which includes vaccinations, a proper diet, and parasite prevention. During their initial visit, we will conduct a physical exam, develop a vaccine schedule, discuss dietary needs, and create a parasite prevention plan. We will also emphasize the importance and timing of spaying/neutering and microchipping your pet. A smooth transition into pet ownership is our goal, and we are here to support you and your new companion during this special time. Choose Murlen Animal Clinic for puppy and kitten care that ensures their well-being.

Senior Pet Care

As your pets age, their needs change, and proper care becomes even more important. At Murlen Animal Clinic, we understand the unique requirements of senior pets. We recommend more frequent wellness exams for senior pets to detect and address problems earlier. Our experienced team may recommend changes in diet, exercise, and other healthcare aspects as your pet matures. It can be challenging to identify signs of pain in older pets, but certain behaviors such as difficulty getting up, limping, decreased stamina on walks, reluctance to be groomed or touched, or urinary/fecal accidents may indicate discomfort. If you notice any of these signs, visit us so we can diagnose the source of pain and initiate appropriate treatment. With our support, you can help your senior pet live a longer and happier life. Trust Murlen Animal Clinic for excellent senior pet care.
