Pictured above is Dr. Ledesma performing an abdominal ultrasound on Kitty. Like Kitty, many of our patients DO NOT require sedation as this procedure is not painful or uncomfortable.


Although humans and animals differ in many ways, some recent advances in human medicine are also very useful in our veterinary patients. One of these advances include diagnostic ultrasound, which has proven to be a very powerful tool in veterinary medicine. We offer diagnostic ultrasound services as a means of providing a higher level of quality care to our patients. We also have the capability to send our images directly to board certified radiologists if and when we need to.

Vaccinations  Deerfield Beach, FL


Vaccines are substances that will trigger an immune response in your pet to help it fight any infections that might arise in the future.

A vaccine stimulates the pet’s immune system to make antibodies that can identify organisms that cause disease. When your pet is immunized, it gains immunity that will prevent diseases or lessen their severity.

Typically we will give puppies and kittens shots that are spaced out about 3-4 weeks apart, with the final vaccinations being administered when the animal reaches the age of 4 months. Each animal is different and will have different vaccination requirements, which the vet will determine after an examination and consultation with you.

The Importance of Vaccinations

Did you know that it’s important to vaccinate your cat or dog at different life stages? It begins when you bring your pet puppy or kitten in for a wellness check. Some vaccines are required by law, including rabies. Most vaccinations will give your pet sufficient immunity for a few years, but others may need to be administered more frequently.
We will be happy to work out a customized schedule with our vet for immunizing your dog or cat.
Dog Vaccines Offered at East Galloway Animal Clinic
Canines are subject to diseases just as people are, and just as we get vaccines to maintain our health, all dogs should get their vaccinations too. The following list of vaccines is recommended from our vets for your beloved pet dog:
* Bordatella
* Distemper
* Hepatitis
* Influenza
* Para-Influenza
* Parvo
* Rabies

Cat Vaccines
Vaccinations help ensure that pets do not come down with easily preventable diseases. Your feline has a better chance of thriving once it has been vaccinated for protection against various illnesses. Our vets recommend that you obtain the following vaccines to keep your cat healthy:
* Distemper

* Herpesvirus (FHV-1)
* Rabies

Wellness Exams  Deerfield Beach, FL

Preventative Pet Wellness

At Quiet Waters Animal Hospital, we’re here to care for your pet through any sickness or emergency, but the most important service we provide is preventative pet wellness care. By giving your pet wellness exams on a regular basis, we can monitor its health and make sure it’s not developing any health problems. By keeping your pet healthy, not only will we make it harder for your pet to catch any diseases, we’ll also be able to diagnose and treat any problems that might arise, while they’re minor and easier to treat.

The Importance of Pet Exams

As your dog or cat grows older, it becomes more and more susceptible to a wide variety of diseases. That’s why it’s so important to bring your pet in for pet exams on a regular basis. Beginning in the first year of life, we’ll begin to administer vaccinations for your puppy or kitten, as well as spay or neuter them.

No matter what the age, a pet wellness examination will include a checkup for a number of health problems. Our veterinarian will include:

  • Looking for problems with your pet’s teeth, gums and mouth
  • Giving your pet the correct vaccinations every year
  • Looking for fleas, ticks and other parasites, then administering preventative medicine against them
  • Weighing and measuring your pet to make sure it’s not becoming obese, plus advice on helping you keep your pet at a healthy weight
  • Checking fur and skin to look for rashes and lumps that can hide under dense pelts
  • Behavioral checks to make sure your pet is socializing correctly

Pet wellness exams are important not only during a puppy or kitten’s first year of life, but during it’s entire life through its senior years. Many serious illnesses can be treated during a pet’s lifetime, but only if they’re diagnosed, and that can only happen if your pet is having regular wellness checkups.

Pets that have regular veterinary care and preventative examinations live much longer than those that aren’t cared for. They’re healthier in general, increasing their immune systems, which cuts down on the number of diseases that can affect their body. Also, if they do become sick, their veterinarian can begin to treat the illness earlier, making it much more likely that the pet will have a safe and full recovery.
