Wellness Exams and Vaccines

At Fairview Hospital for Animals we recommend yearly examinations with annual vaccines. For dogs, we recommend Rabies, Distemper/Parvo/Leptospirosis and Bordetella. Depending on your pet's exposure, we may also suggest Lyme vaccine. Dogs also need to be tested yearly for heartworms and intestinal parasites. They also need to take monthly medication to prevent heartworms and intestinal parasites. There are many choices now for heartworm, flea and parasite control. Let us help you decide which is the best, so we can prevent your dog from getting deadly heartworms. For cats, the recommended vaccines are Rabies, Feline Distemper and possibly Feline Leukemia vaccine, depending on your cat's risk. We also recommend intestinal parasite screenings and flea control for cats.

Emergency & Urgent Care

We have a veterinarian on duty 6 days a week trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Emergencies can be things such a rodent bait poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment please call immediately. We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment. Our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. Please call the office before coming to the office. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.

I visit Fairview Animal Hospital at least once a week for a few of my fur-babies to receive laser therapy and the ENTIRE staff always shows genuine concern for my babies as well as me. They are always completely honest in the care they believe my pets need and only suggest treatments that they firmly believe would help my babies comfort. I have six dogs and two cats who all have their own issues and they know them all by name, know what their problems are and cater to their individual needs. The best part of this staff, is that every single one of my babies thoroughly enjoys their visits which is most important to me.
