Vaccines provide protection against some of the most common and potentially deadly diseases that we see in our companion animals. Vaccinations should begin as early as 6-8 weeks in puppies and kittens.
We are open Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 6 pm and on Saturdays from 7:30am to 12 pm. We close from 1pm – 2pm on Wednesdays for staff meetings and on every third Saturday of each month.
In general heartworm preventatives are excellent at limiting the risk of heartworm and intestinal parasites but they are not 100% effective. We recommend annual testing to identify breakthrough infections early in order to minimize damage to your pet’s health. In addition, our routine heartworm tests screen for the most common tick-borne illnesses in our area including Lyme disease.
Dr. Mark Sullivan and Dr. Mark Mangelsdorf are both enjoying a well-deserved retirement. The Colonial Veterinary Clinic community misses them both and wishes them well!
Bordetella is the bacteria responsible for infectious bronchitis. This condition can lead to severe cough and may progress to pneumonia. Any dog exposed to other dogs is at risk for contracting this disease. Boarding, grooming, and day care facilities, along with dog parks are higher-risk locations for exposure to this bacterium; your dog could come in contact with a dog who has frequented these locations.
We intend to hire an associate veterinarian in the future. We are currently evaluating prospects but we want to find the right candidate to fit our clients needs.
For both dogs and cats, the rabies vaccine is required by law in the state of Virginia. However it is highly recommended to vaccinate your dog against canine parvovirus, distemper virus, adenovirus type 2 and hepatitis. In cats we strongly recommend vaccinating against panleukopenia, calicivirus, and rhinotracheitis (herpesvirus).
The goal of Colonial Veterinary Clinic has always been to provide excellent, affordable health care for your pets. The rising costs of inventory and laboratory services occasionally require us to make price adjustments as needed.
