Vaccination & Reproductive Surgery Schedule

When it comes to protecting your four-legged companion from many contagious, often serious, diseases, current dog and cat vaccinations are key. Having your pet spayed or neutered not only prevents the birth of unwanted litters; these routine veterinary surgeries can also help to protect your animal against some serious types of cancer. They may also prevent unwanted behaviors such as animal aggression, howling, roaming and scooting. 

Cat Vaccinations

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

  • 6 to 8 weeks
    • Rhinotracheitis, Calcivirus, Panleukopenia, Chlamydia
  • 10 to 12 weeks
    • Booster: Rhinotracheitis, Calcivirus, Panleukopenia, Chlamydia
    • Feline Leukemia
  • 14 to 16 Weeks
    • Booster: Rhinotracheitis, Calcivirus, Panleukopenia, Chlamydia
    • Feline Leukemia 2
  • 5 to 6 months

    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.

Dog Vaccinations

In their first year, puppies need these shots to protect them from dangerous diseases. 

  • 6 to 8 weeks
    • DHPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus)
  • 10 to 12 Weeks
    • Booster: DHPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus)
    • Bordetella (Optional)
    • Leptospirosis (Optional)

      • Rabies

      • Booster: Leptospirosis (Optional)

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

    • Spay (female) - Dog spaying will prevent your female dog from mothering puppies, but it can also help to prevent certain cancers and regular heat cycles which can attract roaming males to your property.
    • Neuter (male) - Dog neutering can help to prevent your male dog from fathering unwanted puppies, as well as protecting your dog from a number of serious cancers, and helping to reduce the risk of roaming and dog 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.
  • 12 to 16 Months
    • Final Booster: DHPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus)
    • Rabies
    • Final Booster: Bordetella (Optional)
    • Final Booster: Leptospirosis (Optional)

Parasite Prevention

Parasites are a serious health threat to both people and animals in the Fremont area. Left untreated, parasites can become life-threatening for your cat or dog, and may even be transmitted to other people or pets living in your household. Our parasite prevention products can help protect your cat or dog from these common parasites:

Fleas

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

Ticks

Ticks drain the blood of mammals and are responsible for spreading numerous serious conditions in pets and people. Ticks can take several days to complete feeding.

Ear Mites

While ear mites are tiny, they are highly contagious and live in the ear canals of cats, dogs and other mammals. These parasites reproduce many times.

Heartworm

Spread through mosquito bites, this thread-like parasitic roundworm makes its way into the heart, blood vessels and lungs of infected animals. 

Hookworm

These parasites feed on an animal's blood and live in the digestive tract of dogs and cats. Hookworms can lead to anemia and many other conditions. 

Roundworm

This parasitic worm resides in the intestine and feeds on partly digested intestinal contents. Your pet can lose vital nutrients to this parasite, leading to health issues. 

Tapeworm

Spread through ingestion of infected fleas during grooming, tapeworms are hook-like parasitic worms that live and thrive in your pet's intestines. 

Whipworm

Spread through the ingestion of soil that has been in contact with an infected dog's feces, whipworms can pose a serious health threat to dogs.
