They check, amongst other things: the heart/lungs for signs of murmurs and arrhythmias; abdomen for masses and abnormalities; the joints for signs of pain or arthritis; and carefully examine the teeth/eyes/ears/nose/skin/lymph nodes for infections, allergies, and disease. The doctor will then thoroughly answer all your questions and provide recommendations to best fit the specific needs of your pet and lifestyle. If the veterinarian must address any significant conditions or problems with your pet, then the office visit will be charged as a Standard Office visit of $70.

Recommended Vaccines for Puppies

The staff of MBF is dedicated to the health and well-being of your puppy. Since their immune systems are still developing, just like human children, they require multiple rounds of vaccinations to make sure they are protected against common diseases. The following wellness schedule has been adopted to help us ensure your puppy stays healthy as they mature. This schedule includes vaccinations, intestinal parasite prevention, blood work to monitor organs and overall health, heartworm prevention, and flea/tick prevention.

Factors such as age, health, and previously administered vaccines may result in adjusting our vaccine schedule to your pup’s specific needs. Vaccines are typically given 2-4 weeks apart.

*Optional vaccines/diagnostics depending on your pet’s specific needs.

Additional notes for kittens:
