Vaccinations

At Frankenmuth-Birch Run we understand the importance of vaccinations for your beloved pet’s health. Starting at a young age, vaccinations play a vital role in preventing 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 team will create a customized vaccine schedule specifically tailored to your pet’s age, breed, lifestyle, and environment. We’ll also provide guidance on potential side effects and how to address them. Keep your pet safe and healthy by choosing Frankenmuth-Birch Run for reliable vaccinations.

Parasite Prevention and Control

Frankenmuth-Birch Run understands the potential health risks posed by parasites to both your pet and your family. That’s why we prioritize year-round prevention and control to safeguard everyone’s well-being. Fleas, ticks, heartworms, and intestinal worms are common parasites that can lead to serious health issues. Our comprehensive approach includes a thorough physical examination, fecal test, and blood test during your pet’s annual exam to detect any parasite problems, even if no symptoms are visible. Even if your pet is already on prevention medication, these tests provide essential early detection. Our experienced team will help you design a prevention plan tailored to your lifestyle, offering the choice of monthly oral medication or topical treatments or longer term injectable treatments. Rest assured, we’ll guide you in selecting the most effective method for your family’s needs. Trust in Frankenmuth-Birch Run to keep your pets safe from parasites.

Senior Pet Care

As pets age, their needs evolve, and Frankenmuth-Birch Run understands the importance of providing proper care during their senior years. We strongly recommend more frequent wellness exams for pets over the age of 7 to proactively detect any issues before they progress. Our experienced team may suggest dietary adjustments, exercise modifications, and other healthcare interventions suitable for senior pets. Recognizing signs of pain in older pets can be challenging, but 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 to identify the source of pain and initiate appropriate treatment. With our expertise and guidance, you can help your senior pet enjoy an extended and happier life. Choose Frankenmuth-Birch Run for exceptional senior pet care.
