These are the rules that we, the veterinarians at Care Pet Wellness Group, follow when deciding whether to vaccinate. 

  1. We only vaccinate an animal against infectious agents to which it has a realistic risk of exposure.
  2. We vaccinate against infectious agents that cause significant disease.
  3. We vaccinate an animal only when the potential benefits outweigh the potential risks.

Regular nail trimming should be part of the grooming routine for your pet. Nails that are too long interfere with the way a dog walks and stands. Excessively long cat toenails can be easily caught on furniture. Toenails must be trimmed regularly to keep them a comfortable length.

With a little training and following the correct procedures, nail trimming becomes aquick and painless activity.
