Pet Vaccination & Reproductive Surgery Schedule

Up to date dog and cat vaccinations are key when it comes to protecting your four-legged friend from a variety of serious and contagious diseases. Additionally, having your pet spayed and neutered not only prevents the birth of unwanted litters. but these reproductive surgeries can help to protect your pet from serious kinds of cancer or other diseases. They may also prevent scooting, howling, roaming and other undesirable behaviors. 

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

    While the following procedures aren't kitten vaccinations, neutering, spaying and microchipping your cat will help to protect them from a variety of health conditions and, thus, can be considered preventative health care.

    • 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)

      • Booster: Leptospirosis (Optional)

    Even though the following aren't puppy vaccinations, microchipping, spaying and neutering can help to protect your dog from a variety of health issues and, therefore, handily fall beneath the umbrella of preventative health care. 

    • Spay (female) - Spaying your female dog will prevent her from mothering puppies and can also help to curb unwanted behaviors (such as attracting roaming males or going into heat). Spaying can protect your pup against certain kinds of cancer too.
    • 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 - Microchipping is a form of identification for your dog which is permanently placed beneath their skin, Microchipped pets have a much better chance of being reunited with their owners when they are lost.
  • 12 to 16 Months
    • Rabies
    • Final Booster: DHPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus)
    • Final Booster: Bordetella (Optional)
    • Final Booster: Leptospirosis (Optional)

Parasite Prevention

Parasites can pose a serious health risk to animals and people in the Moreno Valley area. If untreated or undiscovered, parasites can even threaten the life of your dog, cat and family (for those parasites which can be transmitted to people in your household). Our parasite prevention products are able to help your cat or dog avoid 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 consume the blood of mammals and are responsible for the spread of a number of serious conditions in people 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 live in the digestive tract of cats and dogs where they feed on the pet's blood. Hookworms can lead to anemia and other serious conditions.

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 through the ingestion of infected fleas during grooming. These hook-like parasitic worms live and grow in your pet's intestines. 

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.
