Does Tustin Legacy Pet Hospital offer preventative care for my pet?
Of course we do. Just like people, pets can benefit from regular medical checkups and vaccinations. Most experts recommend that you take your cat or dog to the vet at least one time every year. Bring your pet to our animal clinic, and your furry friend will get to know and trust us. In fact, your dog or cat may actually begin to look forward to seeing the veterinarian in Irvine. At Tustin Legacy Pet Hospital, we provide a range of preventative care options, including:
- Nutritional counseling
- Vaccinations to prevent diseases
- Savvy advice for new pet owners
- Compassionate guidance for the care of older pets
- Early screening of common pet issues
Does Tustin Legacy Pet Hospital offer state-of-the-art diagnostics?
When your pet requires specialized testing, we can do it at Tustin Legacy Pet Hospital. Should your veterinarian in Irvine recommend an ultrasound, laser therapy, or digital dental x-rays, we can do them right here in our state-of-the-art veterinary facility.
Where can I get my pet's prescription filled?
If your veterinarian in Irvine writes a prescription for your pet, you may be wondering where you can get it filled. If you try to take a veterinary prescription to the same pharmacy where you get your own medications, they probably won't have the medicine your pet needs. That's why Tustin Legacy Pet Hospital offers an on-site pharmacy as well as easy access to a reliable online pharmacy that stocks every sort of medicine your vet might prescribe for your dog, cat, or other beloved pet.
Why are rabies vaccinations important?
According to the Centers for Disease Control, or CDC, more than 50,000 people die from rabies every year. Many of these deaths could be prevented if rabies vaccines were available worldwide. Fortunately, the rate of rabies in California is at an all-time low due to the practice of dog and cat vaccination. Of course, Tustin Legacy Pet Hospital can vaccinate your furry friends against this devastating disease.
Which vaccinations should my dog get?
All pet dogs should be inoculated against the rabies virus, but rabies vaccines are not the only pet protection your pet needs. Vaccination against distemper will protect your pooch from the potentially fatal disease that causes respiratory, gastrointestinal, and nervous system distress. Parvovirus vaccination is also an imperative part of protecting your pet. Hepatitis and adenovirus vaccination can protect your pet from illnesses such as kennel cough and liver problems. If your dog spends time outdoors, or if you live where there are ticks, vaccination against Lyme disease is also advised by your veterinarian in Irvine.
Your pets depend on you to keep them fed, loved, and protected. Here at Tustin Legacy Pet Hospital, we love animals as much as you do.
