    VACCINE/MEDICATION INFORMATION:
    • Vaccinations and anti-parasitics may not completely eliminate my pet’s chances of contracting the diseases or parasites we are trying to prevent.
    • Some pets may show mild, self-limiting reactions within 24-48 hours post vaccination:
      • Mild fever
      • Lethargy, decreased appetite
      • Limping or discomfort at site of injection
      • Firm swelling at the injection site
      • Sneezing, mild coughing, or other respiratory signs 2-5 days after receiving an intranasal vaccine
    • A small percentage of pets may develop more severe reactions, which can be lifethreatening, and will require me to seek immediate care at the nearest veterinary clinic :
      • A mild effect listed above that seems especially progressive or persistent
      • Excessive vomiting or diarrhea
      • Hives or facial swelling
      • Difficulty breathing, weakness, or collapse
    • Research has shown that in a very small number of cats, an injection site reaction may progress and develop into a tumor. These tumors can be life threatening and may require extensive medical or surgical treatment at my expense. An injection site reaction should be rechecked if it continues to grow for more than 1 month or persists greater than 3 months
    HEARTWORM TESTING AND PREVENTION
    • The heartworm test is valid for 30 days after testing
    • Prevention must be started or continued within that timeframe.
    • Annual testing is recommended in all pets even those that are continuously taking a heartworm prevention product
