To keep our pets healthy, it's imperative to prevent common diseases and disorders from developing in the first place. This is a primary focus for our veterinary team at Limehouse Veterinary Clinic.
Pet vaccinations and parasite prevention are combined with regularly scheduled routine exams to build a solid foundation for your animal's routine healthcare.
With preventive care, we can give your pet the best chance at a long, healthy life. Our team will work with you to create a custom preventive care plan for your cat or dog, tailored to their unique needs.
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.

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 consume the blood of mammals and birds. If these external parasites are left untreated, they can quickly spread.
Ticks feed on mammals' blood. These external parasites are responsible for spreading many serious conditions in both people and pets.
Tiny, highly contagious ear mites live in the ear canals of cats, dogs and other mammals. These parasites continuously reproduce.
Spread through mosquito bites, this thread-like parasitic roundworm lives in the heart, blood vessels and lungs of infected animals.
Hookworms reside in the digestive tract of dogs and cats, where they feed on an animal's blood and lead to many conditions.
