Thanks for taking a look at VSOS. As of October 15, 2012, we are officially at our new location, at 1426 Mitchell Blvd. Springfield, Ohio 45503. The new location is about 1/2 mile west of our old site, and at the corner of Miracle Mile. Look for the stone sign and Big Brown Awning.

The real story on pet vaccines: There are NO “3 year vaccines” for dogs and cats except for rabies. There has been some significant misrepresentation on the “official recommendations”. In actuality, there are parts of the combination vaccines that can give lifelong immunity. But, and a BIG BUT, the other parts of the vaccines, as well as rabies, can only be foregone or extended pending a blood test to check the “titer” , or level of immunity. The cost of the testing averages $95-$220 each year. As long as the titer is at or above a protective level then you can forgo the vaccine and check again next year. If any of the specific parts of the vaccine are low then those parts need boostered at another visit. Vaccines cost between $11 and $35. Breaking up combination vaccines into separate parts is usually more expensive than just giving the routine/core vaccination. All pets need annual exams, 3 year rabies cost nearly 3 times that of 1 year – so we give 1 year rabies vaccines to help prevent confusion on whether your pet is due for its shots yet AND to get a good look at your pet. If you would like to forego annual boosters we will be happy to take a blood sample for the lab tests, but I don’t test my dog and cat – I just booster them every year – AND I sleep very well.
Dental Procedures: The dog (“Honey”) featured in the piece, had a polyp, gingival hyperplasia, or even a tumor on her gum. Any of these conditions need to be further evaluated. Don’t want to have a dental procedure on your pet, then brush their teeth daily.
