Vaccines help pets live longer, healthier lives. Protecting your pet is our primary goal, so developing an appropriate vaccine schedule for your pet is important to us.


FVR - Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis (FVR): this is a herpes virus infection that causes severe upper respiratory disease in cats. FVR is not the same virus that causes infections in people. FVR is very contagious and is spread by contact with infected animals or can be spread via inanimate objects which have been exposed to the virus.

C - Calicivirus is another upper respiratory disease that is highly contagious and very common. Calicivirus is contracted in the same manner as FVR.

P - Panleukopenia can be deadly amongst kittens. The virus is spread through direct contact with an infected animal, or its saliva, urine, feces, or other bodily fluids. Panleukopenia can be carried by many wildlife species, including raccoons.


D - Distemper is a highly contagious viral disease of dogs as well as several wild animals (wolves, coyotes, raccoons) and ferrets. Distemper can be contracted by contact with contaminated objects and can affect multiple organ systems.

H - Canine Hepatitis is a serious viral disease that affects the liver, kidneys, lymph nodes, eyes, and other organs. It is spread through any bodily secretion and signs will often develop about 1 week after exposure.

L - Leptospirosis is bacterial infection that affects dogs, raccoons, opossums, rats, and even people. In our area, raccoons and opossums are the most common carriers. Leptospirosis affects the kidneys, liver, and nervous system.

P - Parainfluenza is a viral disease with varying signs, including: coughing, discharge from the eyes and nose, or even vomiting and diarrhea.

P - Parvovirus is a highly contagious viral disease that is spread through contact with the stool of an infected dog or from a contaminated environment. The virus is very resilient and can survive in your house or in the ground for a long time.


Bordetella is a bacterial disease that causes the condition commonly known as “kennel cough.” It is spread through contact with a contaminated object. Initially, dogs will show respiratory signs, including: discharge from the eyes and nose and a dry, hacking cough.


Rabies is a fatal viral disease that can affect all warm-blooded animals and humans. It is spread through a bite from an infected animal.

Canine Influenza Virus (CIV)

A virus that is spread by respiratory particles or contaminated objects. Dogs that are at risk for contracting this disease are those in close contact with other dogs (boarding or grooming facilities, shelters, training classes, etc.) and these are the dogs that are recommended to be vaccinated.

Lyme Disease

Lyme disease is caused by bacteria (Borrelia burgdorferi) and can affect dogs, cats, horses, cattle, birds, and people. It is transmitted by several different species of ticks.


We have state-of-the-art diagnostic tools that allow our staff to diagnose your pets' condition or illness better. We recommend various blood tests in all stages of health. These tests aid in early detections of internal abnormalities such as kidney and liver disease. 

Urinalysis - Urinalysis is a routine test which provides information about how well the kidneys are working and identifies inflammation and infection in the urinary system. It can also help to detect diabetes and can be useful in the diagnosis of cancer within the urinary system.

Thyroid Testing - The thyroid gland acts like a thermostat and sets the metabolic rate of the whole body. This test is useful in detecting thyroid abnormalities.

Cytologies - Cytology is the microscopic examination of cells that have been collected from the body. It is most often used to diagnose the nature of 'lumps and bumps' found on the surface of the body.

Heartworm Testing - Heartworm disease is usually diagnosed with a simple blood test. Dogs become infected when they are bitten by an infected mosquito that is carrying immature, infective heartworm larvae.

Disease Prevention

At Wheatland Animal Hospital, we believe that regular checkups and wellness exams are critical to your pets' well-being. Not only do these exams keep us up-to-date with your pets' health, but they also allow us to detect potential problems before they become serious. To prepare for your visit you’ll be asked to fill out a questionnaire covering your pet’s lifestyle and behavior.

-We’ll discuss: Infections disease control, vaccinations based on his/her lifestyle and diet. 


-We’ll thoroughly examine: Eyes, ears, nose, mouth, heart, lungs, lymph nodes, musculoskeletal and nervous system, abdominal palpitation and skin. 

Sick Vists

Our experienced and compassionate team at Wheatland Animal Hospital offers same day appointments and immediate care in emergent situations. We offer in house x-rays, ultrasound and endoscopy. 


We are proud to offer many different surgical procedures for dogs and cats at Wheatland Animal Hospital. Spay/Neuters, wound repair, orthopedics, growth removal and dentistries. Post-operative pain management and observation are our commitments following surgery. We refer to Emergency Veterinary Services for overnight care. 

Internal Medicine

Veterinary internal medicine involves treating diseases and disorders of animals' internal systems such as their lungs, brain, or heart. Our veterinarians bring extensive experience in diagnosing and treating challenging cases. 

Euthanasia Services

Losing a pet is one of the most difficult things a person can experience. Our staff will be with you the whole way providing guidance and compassion during this emotional end of life journey. 

Parasite Prevention Planning

Prevention is recommended year-round which helps prevent:

1. Heartworm Disease. It is a life-threatening disease caused by a parasitic worm that lives in the bloodstream and infests that heart and lungs. Dogs become infected with heartworm through the bite of an infected mosquito, but the parasite cannot be transmitted by an infested dog.


2. Intestinal Parasites. There are several intestinal parasites that can infest your puppy and cause vomiting and diarrhea.


3. Fleas. Fleas can parasitize many mammals, including: dogs, cats, rabbits, opossums, and raccoons. The nature of the flea lifecycle puts all dogs at risk for potential exposure. 


4. Ticks. Ticks are common in areas that are wooded, have a water source, or have tall grasses. Preventatives are important if your dog is at risk for tick exposure since there are several diseases that can be transmitted by ticks.
