Protecting Your Pet with Vaccinations & Parasite Control

Does your pet divide their time between the indoors and outdoors? Or are they an indoor-only pet? Even if you answered “yes” to the latter, your pet can still be vulnerable to diseases and parasites. Our homes are not bug-proof, sadly, and you may be tracking bacteria, fleas and/or ticks into the house from outside. Coyne Veterinary Center in Portage can help you protect your pet against many different diseases and parasites thanks to pet vaccinations and parasite preventives.

Our Vaccines for Dogs and Cats

Pet vaccinations increase immunity in pets by prompting the immune system to produce disease-fighting antibodies. We carry the highest-quality vaccines for dogs and cats to protect against fatal diseases such as rabies and distemper. Other illnesses we can help prevent include Lyme disease, leptospirosis and feline leukemia.

Why Your Pet Needs Parasite Prevention

Spiders and termites aren’t the only household pests you need to worry about. Fleas, ticks and mosquitoes are active for much of the year, and they can spread harmful illnesses to your pet. In addition to these external parasites, there are also internal parasites such as roundworms, hookworms, tapeworms and coccidia.

Some of the most common parasite-transmitted diseases in pets include:

  • Heartworm disease (mosquitoes)
  • Lyme disease (ticks)
  • Ehrlichiosis (ticks)
  • Anaplasmosis (ticks)
  • Tapeworm (fleas)

Heartworm disease can be fatal for pets if it's allowed to progress long enough. Routine heartworm testing and year-round heartworm prevention should keep your pet sufficiently protected. Additionally, we offer a Lyme pet vaccinations to effectively prevent Lyme disease in dogs.
