Health CareVaccines

Immunizations are one of the best technologies we have available in preventive medicine. The key to effective use is to vaccinate for key diseases regularly but no more than necessary.

Doctors believe in tailoring vaccine protocols to your individual pet, taking into account benefits and risks as well as your pet's environment, lifestyle and health status. However, we do recommend core vaccines for the health of your pet.

Core vaccines for healthy dogs include:

  • Distemper
  • Adenovirus
  • Parvovirus
  • Parainfluenza

Also available for dogs are:

  • Canine influenza vaccine
  • Lyme vaccine
  • Bordetella

We recommend the following vaccines for cats:

  • Feline Herpes Virus
  • Calicivirus
  • Panleukopenia

We recommend feline leukemia vaccine for cats that go outdoors. Rabies vaccination is mandatory for all dogs and part of our protocol for both species.

Vaccinations are not only safe and effective, they are an important and fundamental aspect of your pet's preventive healthcare plan. Diseases that once were relatively common and fatal to pets are now easily preventable through vaccination. Vaccinating your pet against Rabies helps protect you and your family from this deadly disease.


At Boulevard Veterinary Clinic, our veterinarians prescribe your pet's medications, ensuring there is a direct link between the exam room and our pharmacy. This means your pet receives the right medication, at the right dose, in the right form as quickly as possible. We also are able to easily guide you on the medication's use as well as monitor its effectiveness.

We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick control products and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your pet. We also carry a full line of prescription diets.

Ensuring that you have convenient and timely access to competitively priced medications is an important aspect of our veterinary practice.

Refills are easy, too. Simply give us a call.


We use the HomeAgain microchip, which can be successfully scanned almost anywhere in the world. Implantation of the microchip is painless and takes only seconds. Microchips should be checked yearly.

It's important to remember that a lost pet is not merely an inconvenience, it's the number one cause of pet death in the country. That's why we recommend microchipping every pet.

HealthInternal Medicine

The veterinarians at Boulevard Veterinary Clinic are trained in diagnosing and treating complex internal medicine cases such as kidney, heart, respiratory, immune-mediated diseases and endocrine diseases.

By using the latest advanced diagnostic technology, we can find out what is wrong with your pet. After performing a thorough examination, we may recommend additional tests in order to identify your pet's medical condition.

We can identify:

  • Pancreatitis
  • Urinary issues
  • Gastro-intestinal issues
  • Endocrine issues
  • Respiratory and cardiovascular disease

Nutritional Counseling

Boulevard Veterinary Clinic offers prescription diets and nutrition counseling as needed during office visits.

Why is this important? Pets are living longer, healthier lives than ever before and a big part of that is due to our expanded knowledge of the importance of proper nutrition to overall health. In fact, nutrition is the biggest health variable controlled by a pet's caregiver.

During your pet's comprehensive physical examination, we evaluate his or her body condition and give recommendations based on what we see. An improper diet can affect your pet's renal, dental, gastro-intestinal and other functions.

Prescription Diets

HealthSome pets have more serious nutritional challenges or chronic conditions that can benefit from a special diet. If we identify an issue in your pet, we offer advice and provide information about diets that benefit specific medical conditions such as liver and intestinal disease, bladder and kidney stones, renal failure, food allergies, diabetes and other conditions.

We carry a diverse inventory of prescription foods. If your pet requires a prescription diet we do not carry, we may be able to order it for you.

Diabetic Treatment and Management

Our veterinarians recommend a few simple tests for the diagnosis of diabetes: a complete blood count (CBC), a serum biochemistry profile, and a urinalysis. Elevated blood sugar alone is not enough to determine accurately whether your pet has diabetes. A complete blood count (CBC) evaluates the red blood cells, the white blood cells, and the platelet components of a blood sample.

These additional screening tests provide us necessary information regarding the severity of the diabetes, any conditions that may be contributing to the diabetes, and other complications related to the diabetic state.

Diabetes is most often diagnosed in middle aged or older dogs and cats. Your pet may have other unrelated conditions. These screening tests will usually alert us to any such conditions.


Once a pet is diagnosed with cancer, we give owners the option of being referred to a Board Certified Oncologist. We provide followup bloodwork, exams, palliative therapy to alleviate pain, and supportive therapy to eliminate or minimize side effects.
