Your new family member is a precious treasure- you want a happy, healthy youngster, and we want to help you achieve that goal. Young animals mature rapidly during the first year, so expect to see the veterinarian several times during the first twelve months of your pet’s life.
At Full Circle Veterinary Alternatives, your initial two to three visits will include physical examinations that offer both a conventional and a Chinese medicine view of your pet’s health.
Vaccinations do provide protection for the most serious diseases of young dogs and cats, and we recognize that over-vaccinating is implicated in the development of some autoimmune diseases and fibrous tissue tumours in cats.
We will explore the best program for your pet by strategically administrating vaccines to reduce immune system stress while providing protection against the most serious illnesses.
We also evaluate your youngster’s family history, past vaccination experience and risk of infection when setting our protocol. By helping improve your pet’s innate ability to respond to disease in general, homeopathic nosodes can reduce the severity of illness if your pet should become exposed and can be used when risk of disease exists for an unvaccinated animal.
Deworming and Parasite Control
During your consultation, flea and tick prevention and treatment and prevention of intestinal worms will be discussed. Additionally, the types of products holistic and pharmaceutical, risks and benefits of the treatments available will be covered, enabling you to make an informed choice about which approach you favour to optimize your puppy or kitten’s care.
Again, your family circumstances, as well as age and risk factors for your puppy or kitten will be taken into account.
What we eat is the foundation of our health and well-being. The same is true for our furry, winged or scaly family members.
You will receive support and counselling on an appropriate nutritional approach for your family. This may include using high-quality commercial pet food, home-prepared, cooked and raw diets or a combination of these nutritional plans for your pet.
Behavioural Modification Training
At Full Circle Veterinary Alternatives, we believe that long, happy relationships are cemented when we can communicate clearly with our non-human companions. Puppy classes, socialization and early and continual behavioural education are critical to achieving this goal. We also refer to local organizations that provide canine sports training opportunities like flyball and agility.
