Vaccination & Reproductive Surgery Schedule

Up-to-date cat and dog vaccinations are critical when it comes to protecting your four-legged companion from a whole range of contagious and serious diseases. Additionally, having your pet spayed or neutered will not only prevent unwanted litters, but will also protect your companion against some varieties of serious cancer. These procedures can also help put a stop to undesirable behaviors such as scooting, howling, roaming and animal aggression. 

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 aren't kitten vaccinations, microchipping, spaying, and neutering your pet can help to protect them from a wide variety of health related issues and, so, comfortably fall under the umbrella of 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)

    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 kind of identification for your dog which is around the size of a rice grain. It is placed beneath their skin and remains there throughout their life. Microchipped pets have a much higher chance 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)

Parasite Prevention

Parasites can pose serious health risks to pets in the Stockton area. If they aren't promptly treated, parasites can even be transmitted from your dog or cat to your family members in addition to threatening your beloved companion's life. We offer parasite prevention products for your pet which can help to protect your cat or dog from any of the following parasites:

Fleas

Fleas are external parasites that feed on the blood of birds and mammals. If they aren't treated promptly, fleas can quickly spread throughout your household.

Ticks

These external parasites consume the blood of mammals. They are responsible for the spread of a number of serious conditions in people and pets like Lyme disease. 

Ear Mites

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. If undetected, they 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 needed 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 can be spread through the ingestion of soil that has been in contact with an infected dog's feces. Whipworms can pose a significant health risk to dogs.
