Frequently asked questions



Are Vaccines Necessary?

Yes, Vaccines are the best way to keep your pet healthy.

Puppies should get 3-4 combination vaccines starting at 6-8 weeks old.

They can get a Rabies Vaccine at 16 weeks old.


We also recommend Bordatella if they are going to be in an area with other dogs or if you are planning on boarding.

Other Vaccines available for dogs include Flu and Snakebite.


Kittens should get a set of 3 combination vaccines starting at 8 weeks old.

They can get a Rabies Vaccine at 16 weeks old.

We recommend Feline Leukemia vaccines for any cat that will be outside.


Do you have a way to help remove skunk spray?

Yes we do!  First you will need a pair of rubber gloves, Scope mouthwash, Dawn dish washing soap, 3% hydrogen peroxide (available at your drug store) and baking soda.  

Avoid eyes at all times.  Soak your animal with Scope mouth wash and leave for 5 minutes.  Rinse thoroughly.  Next make a mixture of 1 teaspoon of Dawn, 1/4 cup of baking soda and 1 quart of Hydrogen Peroxide.  For larger animals you may have to double the recipe.  Soak your animal with the solution and leave on for no more than 5 minutes.  Rinse thoroughly and then shampoo and rinse thoroughly again.  You will now have your fresh smelling friend back!

Do not premix the solution or put it in a sealed container of any kind, this will explode.
