COME IN FOR ALL THE CORE DOG AND CAT VACCINATIONS
Your dog or cat needs certain vaccinations to protect him or her from common illnesses and diseases. Even pets that live relatively sheltered lives need these inoculations. Some diseases (such as rabies) can be transmitted to humans, so vaccinating your pet also protects you and your family.
We provide the following vaccinations for dogs:
- Canine parvovirus — a life-threatening virus that can affect the intestinal tract
- Canine parainfluenza- a highly contagious respiratory virus and is one of the most common pathogens of infectious tracheobronchitis, also known as canine cough
- Canine distemper — an illness that can affect a variety of the systems in the dog's body, particularly if the dog is a young or adolescent puppy
- Canine hepatitis — a type of liver infection
- Canine leptospirosis- a serious illness that can affect the kidneys, liver, brain, lungs, and heart.
- Rabies — a virus that affects the dog's brain and eventually leads to death
- Lyme- a vaccine to help prevent the transmission of Lyme disease. Lyme disease can lead to damage in the kidneys, nervous system, and heart.
- Bordetella- a highly contagious respiratory disease that causes inflammation of the trachea and bronchi.
- CIV (Canine Influenza/Dog Flu)- a highly contagious respiratory infection of dogs that is caused by an influenza A virus.
For cats, we provide the following immunizations:
- Feline panleukopenia — a potentially fatal illness that primarily affects young cats
- Feline calicivirus — an upper respiratory tract infection that is commonly found in large groups of unvaccinated cats, like in shelters and large cat families
- Feline rhinotracheitis — a respiratory virus that can affect any unvaccinated cat but is a particular risk for cats with compromised or weak immune systems, like pregnant cats
- Rabies — this fatal disease can also affects cats
- FeLV (Feline leukemia)- a virus that causes anemia (a low red blood cell level), cancers, and/or suppression of the immune system. Feline leukemia virus is transmitted between cats via infected saliva and urine.

SEE US REGULARLY FOR PET WELLNESS EXAMS
Pets need regular medical checkups just like you do. By practicing preventative wellness, we can care for your pet and ensure that it stays healthy. Illnesses can be spotted earlier, which ensures improved success with treatments.
When you bring your pet to Crosspointe Animal Hospital, we perform a nose-to-tail examination that goes beyond a quick checkup. We look for the early signs of illness, and we provide important vaccinations and medications.
- Examine teeth, gums, and mouth
- Scheduled vaccinations
- Check ears
- Look for fleas, mites, and other parasites
- Flea and tick preventative medication
- Check skin and fur for rashes and allergies
- Care for claws
- Check weight and size to look for canine or feline obesity
- Encourage spaying or neutering
We recommend the following schedule for your pet's wellness exams.
- Kittens and puppies — 4 visits per year beginning in their eighth week
- Dogs and cats 1 year or older — annual visits
- Senior pets (7 years and older) — twice a year
We'll also provide you with valuable advice on how to help your pet live the longest, happiest life possible. Schedule your pet's next checkup today.

GET PROMPT CARE FOR PET POISONINGS
Accidental poisoning is a rather common hazard for pets. Pets often consume things that are dangerous, including plants, rodent bait, insecticides, bleach, antifreeze, and prescription drugs. Even some foods are harmful to pets.
- Macadamia nuts
- Potato leaves
If you're uncertain about a food's toxicity, it's a good idea to look it up online to see if it's harmful to dogs or cats.
Common signs of poisoning include the following:
- Excessive thirst
- Increased or decreased urination
- Fainting or tremors
- Abnormal heart rate
If you notice any of these symptoms in your pet, it's time to call for professional help. Ignoring the problem can lead to internal bleeding, kidney failure, liver failure, and other serious problems, including death. Call Crosspointe Animal Hospital at 703-690-6600. We're prepared to deliver the health care that your pet needs.
