"In 2001 a very special little kitten came to stay at our house named Emma. She weighed in at a whopping 2 ½ pounds. When she was about 9 months old she began vomiting and wouldn’t eat. The doctors at Piney Creek Square Veterinary Clinic took x-rays, but nothing showed up on them. She was losing weight, and she was thin by nature anyway, so everyone was worried about her. Dr. Behrns came to the rescue and performed emergency surgery on our little girl. She found an almond trying to pass into Emma’s stomach. Of course, it would not have shown up on an x-ray. Thank you, Dr. Behrns, for saving Emma’s life."
Vaccinations can play a very important role in your pet’s life. When utilized properly, they can be an integral part of keeping our furry family members healthy and free from contagious, life threatening diseases. At Piney Creek Square Integrative Veterinary Medicine, we believe in individualized vaccine schedules.
We consider factors such as age, health, lifestyle, and how often they should be administered to help decide what is appropriate for your pet. For this reason, we have modeled our vaccination protocols for core and non-core vaccines after the recommendations from the American Veterinary Medical Association and the World Small Animal Veterinary Association.
