Updates for Center Veterinary Clinic
Dental Special: Currently we are in the middle of our February Dental Special Month. We are offering 20% off of all dental cleanings and related procedures. We are also offering 20% off of all dental products and T/D diets.
New Anti-Parasitic Medication: Trifexis is a new oral anti-parasitic medication we are now recommending. It is replacing oral Sentinel since its production has temporarily been halted due to manufacturing problems. It is a great product with many similarities to Sentinel. It is a monthly chewable and will protect your dog against Roundworms, Hookworms, Whipworms, Heartworms and Fleas. Many people will like it betters since unlike Sentinel it will begin killing fleas within 30 minutes of administration so it is great for dogs with Flea allergies. For our Sentinel clients we will be changing pets over directly to the Trifexis with no problems as soon as you call us for a refill. If you have any questions about this product please call our office or email us.
Center Veterinary Clinic on Facebook: Please friend us on Facebook where you will be able to read all of the up to date information about CVC, enter a contest, share photos and receive coupons and specials. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Center-Veterinary-Clinic/176351829138960
Going Green: We're doing our part to cut down on paper! Instead of reminder postcards and birthday cards, we will be sending these via email. Make sure to check your email to receive these.
Canine Influenza Vaccine: Canine Influenza was first discovered in 2004 isolated from several groups of racing Greyhounds in Florida. Cases began appearing in pet animals in 2005 and as of today, cases have been documented in 38 states including California. The virus is very contagious and can persist in the environment for several days. It is transmitted by direct contact with other dogs via mucus and saliva secretions. Symptoms include mild fever, lethargy, loss of appetite, cough and runny nose. Most pets that contract the virus will have mild illness but some will get very sick with 20% requiring treatment at a veterinary hospital. Between 5-8% may die from complications of the infection. Because this virus is relatively new, most dogs have no antibodies to fight this infection. Fortunately, there is a vaccination to control the spread of infection and lessen the symptoms should your pet be exposed. If a vaccinated dog does get the flu, the signs are likely to be milder.
CVC is no offering this vaccine to all of our clients and requiring it be given to all dogs boarding in our facility. In my professional opinion, dogs who frequent dog parks, beaches, board in kennels, go to doggie day care or get groomed should be vaccinated. The vaccine is given twice initially one month apart and then is given annually as a booster. Please call our office to schedule your pet's vaccine or to ask us any questions about the disease or vaccine.
Through June 2012 we are running a special which is purchase the first vaccine at regular price and receive 50% off the booster given one month later.
