Pet Vaccination & Reproductive Surgery Schedule

It's essential to keep your cat or dog's vaccinations up to date in order to protect them from a variety of contagious, often severe, diseases. Getting your pet spayed or neutered doesn't just prevent the birth of unwanted litters; these common veterinary procedures could also help keep your pet safe against some serious kinds of cancer. They could prevent undesirable behaviors like howling, scooting, roaming, and animal aggression.

Cat Vaccinations

During their first year, kittens require these shots to guard them against serious diseases. 

  • 6 to 8 weeks
    • Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, Panleukopenia, Chlamydia
  • 10 to 12 weeks
    • Booster: Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, Panleukopenia, Chlamydia

    While spaying, neutering, and microchipping are not kitten vaccinations, they help protect your kitty from a range of health problems, falling under the preventive health care umbrella.

Parasite Prevention

Parasites are a serious threat to the health of both pets and people in the Toledo area. If parasites aren't treated, they could threaten your dog or cat's life, and in some cases even spread to the other pets and people in your home. Our parasite prevention products can help protect your animal companion from these parasites:

Fleas

Fleas are external parasites that feed on the blood of birds and mammals. They can quickly spread throughout your home if left untreated,

Ticks

Ticks are responsible for spreading a variety of serious conditions in pets and people and consume the blood of mammals to survive. 

Ear Mites

 Ear mites are tiny and very contagious. They live in the ear canals of dogs, cats and other mammals. These parasites continuously reproduce during 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

Hookworms reside in the digestive tract of cats and dogs and eat the animal's blood. These parasites can cause anemia and other severe 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 transmitted through the ingestion of infected fleas during grooming. These hook-like parasitic worms live and grow in the intestines of your pet. 

Whipworm

Pets can get whipworms by ingesting soil that has been in contact with an infected dog's feces. Whipworms are a serious threat to the health of dogs.
