Vaccination & Reproductive Surgery Schedule

Current dog and cat vaccines are required to prevent your pet from a variety of infectious, often fatal, illnesses. Spaying or neutering your pet not only avoids the birth of unwanted litters, but these routine veterinary procedures can also help to protect your pet from some deadly kinds of cancer. They have the potential to inhibit undesirable behaviors like as wailing, scooting, wandering, and animal aggressiveness.

Cat Vaccinations and Preventive Care

In their first year, kittens will receive a series of vaccinations and booster shots to protect them from a range of diseases and conditions. After their first year, your cat should return annually to receive the appropriate booster shots.

    Some vaccination requires booster shots within a few weeks of each other to build up your kitten's immunity against these diseases. Your vet will help you determine a schedule that will work best for you and your pet.

Parasite Prevention

Parasites pose a serious health threat to people and their beloved pets. Left untreated, parasites can threaten the life of your cat or dog, and in some cases can even be transmitted to other people or pets living in your household. Our parasite prevention products can help protect your dog or cat from the following common parasites:


Fleas

Fleas are external parasites that feed on the blood of birds and mammals. Left untreated, fleas can quickly spread throughout your household.


Ticks

These external parasites feed on mammalian blood and are responsible for the spread of a variety of severe diseases in humans and pets.


Ear Mites

Tiny, highly contagious ear mites reside in the ear canals of dogs, cats and other mammals. These parasites reproduce continuously throughout their lifespan. 


Heartworm

This thread-like parasitic roundworm is spread through mosquito bites and makes its home in the heart, lungs and blood vessels of infected animals.


Hookworm

These parasites reside in the digestive tracts of cats and dogs, feeding on the blood of the animals. Hookworms can cause anemia and other significant health problems.


Roundworm

This parasitic worm lives in the intestine and feeds on partially digested intestinal contents. This parasite can rob your pet of vital nutrients necessary to stay healthy.


Tapeworm

Tapeworms are spread by ingesting infected fleas while brushing. These hook-like parasitic worms live and develop in the intestines of your pet.


Whipworm

Whipworms are spread through the ingestion of soil that has been in contact with an infected dog's feces. Whipworms pose a serious health risk to dogs.
