minimal symptoms, to deadly and incurable.
Hepatitis- Is a highly
contagious viral disease that affects the eyes, liver, and

life threatening bacterial virus that is most common in
puppies and older dogs. This virus is easily spread, and can
live in the environment for 6 months or more.

Rabies- Rabies is considered
a public health hazard and there is no cure!
For your protection, it is required by law to have your dogs
and cats vaccinated for rabies. This fatal viral zoonotic
disease is spread by bats, skunks, raccoons, foxes, coyotes,
dogs, cats, cattle, and horses. It is contracted through the

Disease- Lyme disease
is a tick borne bacterial disease transmitted via the (deer
tick, american dog tick, black legged tick, lone star tick,
& pacific coast tick) that affects your pets and yourself as
well. It can cause arthritis, kidney damage, and even death.
Other symptoms include: loss of appetite, fever, shifting
lameness from one leg to another, and/or fatigue, swelling
of limbs or joints, vomiting, depression, lethargy or
reluctance to move. If not detected at an early stage it can
cause organ and/or neurological issues.
Since its discovery in 1975, Lyme disease has spread rapidly
throughout the United States. Today, canine Lyme disease has
been reported in every state, so prevention is the key! The
best preventative methods are to give a yearly Lyme vaccine
to your dog and to use a topical medication. At CVS we use
Advantix for dogs. It is applied topically between the
animalís shoulder blades once a month. This product repels
ticks, mosquitoes and fleas. CVS uses the snap test to
detect heartworm, lymes and two other tick- borne diseases.
We have detected lymes disease in many unvaccinated dogs.
However, when caught early enough, treatment is available.
