As a concerned, loving pet owner, you want your pet to receive the best care. Understanding your pet’s life stage is the foundation for personalized care. Regularly scheduled exams and vaccinations are a vital part of caring for your best friends. At Butte Oroville Veterinary Hospital, we recommend our vaccines on an individual basis because we know that every pet’s health, history, environment and exposure risk varies. We constantly keep our eyes open for safer, more effective treatments, medications, and protocols based on current findings.
