Along those lines, Zaidel said not all animal hospitals offer the safest form of a vaccine.
"There are a lot of different manufacturers so for rabies shots, we use a pure rabies vaccine that doesn't have chemical adjuvant in it. The same with the female leukemia one, which is lower cancer risk associated because of its design," said Zaidel. "We're very particular in the types we offer."
The careful approach to vaccination is something that Wicker said stood out to her.
"It had never been offered to me before, the choice of having the pure rabies vaccine," said Wicker. "When one of my cats had feline leukemia, they use an air compressor that moves the vaccine without even having a shot."
Malta Animal Hospital treats cats, dogs, ferrets, rabbits and other small mammals for preventative care, dental care, cancer treatment, allergies and has an in-house lab with equipment to run chemical analysis on urine and blood samples. It also does nail trimming and ear cleanings.
