Dogs and cats age faster than humans, so significant changes in their health can happen more quickly. Our pet wellness programs are designed to diagnose diseases early, so treating and managing them is easier. We ensure that your pet receives appropriate vaccinations and preventives, adding a layer of protection to their health. All our veterinarians are experienced and qualified, so that you can rely on us for your pet’s healthcare needs. Healthy adult dogs and cats should visit our animal hospital once a year. At the same time, puppies, kittens, senior pets, and pets with health issues need frequent checkups. We work with you to create an individualized wellness program and pet vaccinations Vancouver protocol customized to your pet. Get in touch with us today to schedule your pet’s wellness exam and due vaccinations.
Congratulations on your new puppy! The first step is getting your new friend vaccinated, to help keep them safe. At BAAH, we have designed a puppy wellness program that helps get your pup get started on the right path to a long and healthy life. The first few months are a critical period in your puppy’s development. We can give you the support and tools necessary to help it grow into a well-mannered and healthy dog. We also provide information and advice on nutrition, behavior, training, and socialization. Our wellness program also includes pet vaccination Vancouver for your new dog against rabies, parvovirus, and distemper, among other diseases. Your puppy is also tested and treated for parasites like roundworms. Schedule your puppy for the first examination as soon as possible.
As dogs and cats age, they require a more vigilant approach to their health. Our senior wellness program can help your pet remain fit and healthy as they age and help us catch any potential diseases early when they are easier to treat or manage. Diagnosing diseases and certain conditions early is crucial throughout your pet’s life, but it becomes even more critical when they enter their senior years. The risks of arthritis, senility, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, hormone disorders, and kidney and liver problems all increase with age. Senior status differs depending on your pet’s breed. Small dogs live longer than larger ones, and cats generally live longer than dogs. We can help you determine what life stage your pet is in. So, bring your pet in for a baseline exam and get a tailored senior wellness and pet vaccination plan for your pet’s needs. Your pet needs annual wellness care throughout its lifespan to stay healthy. If your pet has not seen the vet this year, then make an appointment with the Beach Avenue Animal Hospital today.
Congratulations on your new kitten! The first few months of your kitten’s life are very important, and we are here to help guide you through it. Whether this is your first kitten, first pet ever, or your a professional kitten owner, we are here to help you understand how to care for them. We want you to be able to understand their wants and needs, alongside making sure they are fully vaccinated. Schedule your kitten for their first exam as soon as possible. Until your kitten has received a series of vaccines, they are susceptible to many serious but preventable diseases.

Some of these are elective, but others are core vaccines to make sure your kitten lives a long and healthy life. Here at Beach Avenue Animal Hospital we also work with the best brand for flea and tick prevention. Learning about the importance of flea and tick prevention is an important step to owning a cat, one tick has the potential to be lethal. So make sure you chat with the Doctor to learn about how we can help!
Most kittens have roundworms, which are intestinal worms that can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and other gastrointestinal signs (although cats can have worms without showing any symptoms). It is important for kittens to be treated for roundworms, not only to rid them of the infection but also to prevent you and the rest of your family from becoming infected. Roundworms can be transmitted from pets to people. By ensuring that your kitten is treated, you can keep your entire family safe from these and other parasites.

We provide a unique vaccination protocol for your pet that starts from the first year of life. As kittens and puppies, they begin with a vaccination schedule, where they receive a series of vaccines to boost their immunity. Our expert vets work with you to develop this customized protocol for their first year and beyond. We look forward to meeting your new kitten!
