Large Animal Service
“Prevention is key” cannot be stressed enough! Preventing disease is always more effective and cheaper than treating disease. This also saves your animal from pain, stress, lifelong chronic changes to their lifestyle. At Valley Veterinary Services, we recommend at least years preventative care exams for all our patients!
These appoints help us not only establish a relationship with you and your pet, but also a baseline, so we can monitor and manage your pet’s health as things changes. This is a great time to screen for early signs of illness, but also use preventative measures such as vaccines and parasite preventatives.
We follow the American Association of Equine Practitioner’s (AAEP) recommendations on equine vaccines as follows:
- Spring Vaccines: 5 Way Vaccine (EWT/Flu/Rhino), West Nile Virus Vaccibe
- Fall Vaccines: 5 Way Vaccine (EWT/Flu/Rhino), West Nile Vaccine, Rabies Vaccine.
For our pet pigs we recommend the following vaccines:
- Respiratory Combo vaccine every 6 months
- Tetanus annually
- Rabies annually.
For our breeding and show swine, please contact us to schedule a consultation for the best vaccine program for your farm!
Pet animals we recommend minimally the following:
- CDT vaccine every 6 months
- Rabies vaccine annually
Sheep can also be vaccinated every 6 months with an 8-way Cattle/Sheep vaccine as well.
