Pet Care Information


Baker Animal Hospital provides a variety of services for the health of your pet.  The following information will help you take better care of your furry friends.


At Baker Animal Hospital, we tailor each protocol according to your pet’s age, health, indoor/outdoor status, and potential risk. We strive to keep up with current medical recommendations in the area of vaccines, and promise to do our best to offer the most up-to-date practices. Some of our vaccinations are 

becoming possible to booster only every three years. This is wonderful and will hopefully bring about the need for only one vaccine per year in the future. 

The following documents provide more detailed information.




The majority of pets have some level of dental disease by three years of age.  Decreased interest in food or a foul odor from your pet’s mouth may be early signs of dental disease.  In addition to painful teeth and gums, progressing dental disease can lead to more serious infections in the heart, kidneys, liver, or respiratory tract.  We have many options available to help keep your pet’s teeth clean after a professional cleaning has been performed.  

Parasite Control

Heartworm is a deadly disease carried by mosquitos.  All dogs are susceptible.  In the past, prevention was limited to a pill given once a month.  Current modes of prevention include monthly pills given by mouth or monthly drops applied to the shoulder area.  Either of these routes can include flea control so your pet gets both heartworm and flea prevention at the same time in one medication.  A third alternative is ProHeart, an injection that lasts 6 months to prevent heartworm and let you not worry about missing a dose.  There are many options for flea prevention: from drops applied once a month to flavored pills that can be given every 3 months to a collar that lasts 8 months!  Ask our veterinary specialist for details.


Have a new puppy or kitten?  Please spay or neuter it at the age of about six months.  Your pet will likely live a longer, healthier life if it is spayed or neutered, and you will help control the pet population, and prevent the proliferation of unwanted animals.  A Baker Animal Hospital veterinary specialist will be glad to give you more information.
