Spaying and neutering are now standard procedures which prevent not only unwanted pregnancies, but also genital diseases and often aggressive behavior in pets.We recommend spaying and neutering before the animal's first heat cycle, around the age of six months. Veterinary research clearly indicates that age is one of the most important factors in preventing genital diseases.

Regular yearly vaccination in our animal clinic will protect your pet from viral diseases which can severely damage internal organs. In young animals, when the maternal immunity diminishes at the age of eight weeks, your pet can be very vulnerable to many destructive viruses. We recommend the first vaccination is at 8 weeks, the second booster shot at 12 weeks, and the last one at 16 weeks. This last shot boosts immunity in the young body to further protect your pet from dangerous viruses. Throughout the life of your pet, it is strongly recommended to vaccinate your pet every year to keep all vaccines up to date, especially for rabies protection.We provide all routine vaccines at Bayview Woods Animal Hospital, and our helpful system reminder informs our clients when the annual vaccination is due.
Deworming your pets followed by a yearly check-up and fecal test will help keep them in good health. Since some parasites are common to both humans and animals, it is extremely important to prevent your pet and yourself from contamination and diseases. In our vet clinic, we strongly recommend deworming your young pet with the first shot since some parasites can transfer to the fetus during pregnancy or via milk during nursing.

Heartworm Information: Does your dog love the outdoors? If so, she's in good company. Unfortunately, being outside also comes with health risks like heartworm disease. A recent study by the Ontario veterinary College showed that the number of cases of heartworm disease in Canada is up to over 60% over the last 8 years. Country dogs, suburban dogs and even city dogs are at risk.
Why is that? This is because Heartworm is spread by mosquitoes. One bite from an infected mosquito is enough to transmit the disease to your dog. Coyotes, foxes, raccoons and other wild animals can become infected. Once infected, these animals can become heartworm reservoirs for mosquitoes to feed on, leading to constant risk of infection for your dog.
Since Heartworms are not readily visible the way that ticks and fleas are, you may not even know that your dog is infected. Symptoms don't appear for up to t six months when the parasite arrives in the dog's heart and lungs. Your dog may look fine but may sill be infected. Left untreated, heartworms can cause severe damage to the heart, lungs and may eventually cause death.
What can you do? Be sure to ask us to perfrom a simple blood test yearly to check to see if your dog carries heartworms or not. Also, think prevention. Highly effective preventative treatments are available for your beloved pet by us. They are generally given monthly once mosquito season has started which is generally June-November. As an additional feature, some heartworm preventatives will also protect your pet and protect your home from other parasites such as fleas, ticks and roundworms.
