Veterinary FAQ

You have questions, we have answers!

Who will see my pet?

Dr. Steffen prides herself on seeing each patient.

When you bring your pet to Companion Animal Medical Centre, your pet will have the full attention of Dr. Steffen with the assistance of her veterinary team.

How much are veterinary services?

We have a full page dedicated to getting you estimated pricing on the cost of health care for your pet. Check out our estimated pet care cost to get a better idea of what you are looking at before you contact us.

Are There Any Other Vaccinations You Have Available?

We also offer the Lyme and canine influenza vaccine for dogs and the leukemia vaccine for cats.

Do you offer holistic vet services?

Yes, we do. Dr. Steffen DVM is certified by the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association (AHVMA) and pet lovers travel far to have her see their pets. She is very well respected in the holistic animal care community by her peers.

When Should Puppies and Kittens Receive Their First Vaccines?

Between six and eight weeks of age.

Should puppies, kittens, and senior pets have more frequent examinations?


Do You Offer Wellness Exams?

Yes, we recommend annual wellness exams for adult dogs and cats between one and seven years old. At each check-up, we record your pet’s weight and temperature, ask about eating habits and exercise, and discuss parasite control. Our veterinarians also check for specific health issues, such as diabetes, and signs of cancer. You also have the chance to get help with any behavioral concerns.

  • Having your female cat or dog spayed reduces their risk of developing breast tumors, which are malignant or cancerous in 50% of dogs and 90% of cats. 
  • Neutering your male cat prevents unwanted behavior such as urine marking, roaming, fighting, and aggression.
  • Pets are much safer when they're at home. Spaying or neutering helps prevent roaming behavior, making it far more likely your pets  will stick close to home and be easier to locate in the unfortunate event they're lost.
  • Kittens as young as 8 weeks old can be safely neutered or spayed, completely preventing your female cat from ever going into heat or your male cat from urine spraying.
  • Having your pet spayed or neutered is much more cost effective than taking care of an unexpected litter of kittens.
  • The number of both cats and dogs euthanized each year has been decreasing in part to spay and neuter campaigns. We'd love to see this continue!
  • Your pets will be as sleek as ever! The idea that having your pet spayed or neutered will make them overweight is a myth.
