Veterinarians In Denver, Colorado
Veterinarians can provide health care services for dogs, including:
Vaccinations: According to Denver law, rabies vaccinations are required for all pets who live in Denver (cats and dogs), and for good reason. Raccoons, bats, foxes, coyotes, squirrels, and skunks can transmit rabies. The disease can be conveyed to humans, and when it’s left untreated, it can become fatal. Any animals that contract rabies have to be euthanized, and any humans that contract rabies have to undergo a series of painful shots that can cost $1,500-$2,000. In addition to an annual rabies shot for your dog, it’s also a good idea to get a distemper/parvo vaccination for your dog.
Annual Exams: Even if your dog is healthy, annual exams are important, because the veterinarian looks at your dog’s ears, mouth, nose, eyes, heart, lungs, abdomen, back , tail, and heart. A thorough annual exam for your dog can pick up early signs of disease or distress that might not be readily apparent.
Diet Recommendations: A veterinarian can make food recommendations for your dog based on health, age, weight, and other factors.
Training / Behavioral Tips: Most veterinarians are happy to provide simple behavioral and training tips for dogs, techniques that can make a difference in everyone’s quality of life (dogs and owners alike).
