Vaccination & Reproductive Surgery Schedule

To protect your four-legged companion from a range of contagious, often serious, diseases, it's essential to ensure your dog or cat is up to date on vaccinations. Having your pet spayed or neutered not only prevents the birth of unwanted litters; these common veterinary surgeries can also help to protect your pet from some serious types of cancer. They may prevent unwanted behaviors such as animal aggression, scooting, roaming and howling. 

Cat Vaccinations

In their first year of life, kittens need the following shots to protect them from serious diseases. 

  • 8 weeks
    • Rhinotracheitis, Calcivirus, Panleukopenia, Chlamydia
  • 12 weeks
    • Booster: Rhinotracheitis, Calcivirus, Panleukopenia, Chlamydia

    While the following are not kitten vaccinations, spaying, neutering and microchipping help protect your cat from a number of health issues, and therefore fall under the preventive health care umbrella. 

    • Spay (females) - Spaying your female cat prevents the birth of unwanted litters of kittens, protects your cat against serious illnesses, and can help to prevent behaviors such as howling and scooting that accompany heat cycles.
    • Neuter (males) - Neutering your male cat prevents your pet from fathering unwanted kittens, protects your cat against various illnesses, and can help to prevent territory marking (spraying), roaming, howling, and cat aggression. 
    • Microchipping - A microchip is a permanent form of identification that is about the size of a grain of rice and placed under your pet’s skin. Pets that are microchipped have a better chance of being reunited with their owners if they are lost.

Parasite Prevention

For animals and people in the Glendale area, parasites can pose a serious health threat. Left untreated, parasites may threaten the life of your dog or cat, and in some cases can even be transmitted to other pets or people living in your house. Our parasite prevention products, can help you protect your cat or dog from these common parasites:

Fleas

Fleas consume the blood of mammals and birds. If these external parasites are left untreated, they can quickly spread. 

Ticks

Ticks feed on mammals' blood. These external parasites are responsible for spreading many serious conditions in both people and pets. 

Ear Mites

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

Heartworm

Spread through mosquito bites, this thread-like parasitic roundworm lives in the heart, blood vessels and lungs of infected animals. 

Hookworm

Hookworms reside in the digestive tract of dogs and cats, where they feed on an animal's blood and lead to many conditions.

Roundworm

Roundworms lurk in the intestine, feeding on partially digested intestinal contents. This parasite can rob your pet of nutrients. 

Tapeworm

Spread through the ingestion of infected fleas while grooming, hook-like parasitic tapeworms live and grow in your pet's intestines.
