Dr Shapiro Examining cat Omar

  • Thorough examinations
  • Vaccination: Vaccinating your dog or cat protects him or her against a wide variety of infectious diseases. We will discuss with you a vaccination program that is appropriate for you particular pet. At Groveport Canal Animal Hospital, we do not believe that one vaccination program is correct for all pets. We do not believe in over-vaccinating dogs or cats. Mature, healthy pets that are not at excessive risk are generally vaccinated on a three year schedule. We understand that your pet is unique and needs a vaccination program specific to him/her. We use only the safest, highest efficacy vaccinations. Only *non-adjuvanted vaccines are used in felines.
