Vaccination & Reproductive Surgery Schedule

Protecting your pet from many contagious, often fatal diseases requires up-to-date pet vaccinations. Spaying or neutering your pet not only prevents unwanted litters but can also help protect your pet from some serious cancers. It can also prevent unwanted behaviors such as howling, scooting, roaming, and aggression.

Cat Vaccinations

Kittens need the following vaccinations during their first year of life to protect them from serious diseases.

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

    While spaying, neutering, and microchipping are not kitten vaccinations, they do help protect your cat from a variety of health problems and thus fall under the category of preventive health care.

    • Spay (females) - Spaying your female cat helps prevent unwanted litters of kittens, protects your cat from serious illnesses, and can help to prevent heat-related behaviors like howling and scooting.
    • Neuter (males) - Neutering your male cat prevents him from having unwanted kittens, protects him from different illnesses, and can help him avoid territory marking (spraying), roaming, howling, and cat aggression.
    • Microchipping - A microchip is a permanent form of identification placed under your pet's skin about the size of a grain of rice. Microchipped pets have a better chance of being reunited with their owners if they become separated.

Dog Vaccinations

Puppies need the following vaccinations during their first year of life to protect them from serious diseases.

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

      • Booster: Leptospirosis (Optional)

    While spaying, neutering, and microchipping are not puppy vaccinations, they do help protect your dog from a variety of health problems and thus fall under the category of preventive health care.

    • Spay (female) - Spaying your female dog will prevent her from having puppies, as well as certain cancers and regular heat cycles, which can attract roaming males to your property.
    • Neuter (male) - Neutering your male dog prevents him from having unwanted puppies, protects him from different illnesses, and can help him avoid territory marking (spraying), roaming, howling, and dog aggression.
    • Microchipping - A microchip is a permanent form of identification placed under your pet's skin about the size of a grain of rice. Microchipped pets have a better chance of being reunited with their owners if they become separated.
  • 12 to 16 months
    • Final Booster: DHPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus)
    • Rabies
    • Final Booster: Bordetella (Optional)
    • Final Booster: Leptospirosis (Optional)

Parasite Prevention

People and animals in the Fremont area are at risk of contracting parasites. If left untreated, parasites can put your cat or dog's life in danger, and in some cases, they can even spread to other people or pets in your home. Our parasite prevention products can help protect your dog or cat from a variety of parasites, including:

Fleas

Fleas are parasitic insects that eat the blood of birds and mammals. Fleas can spread fast throughout your home if left untreated.

Ticks

These external parasites feed on mammalian blood. They are responsible for spreading different, serious diseases in humans and pets.

Ear Mites

The ear canals of dogs, cats, and other mammals are home to tiny, contagious ear mites. Throughout their lives, these parasites reproduce without stopping.

Heartworm

This parasitic roundworm looks like a thread. It spreads by mosquito bites and lives in the heart, lungs, and blood vessels of infected animals.

Hookworm

These parasites feed on the blood of cats and dogs and live in their digestive tracts. Hookworms can cause anemia and other serious health problems.

Roundworm

This parasitic worm feeds on digested intestinal contents, where it lives. This parasite can deplete your pet's supply of essential nutrients.

Tapeworm

Tapeworms spread by ingesting infected fleas while grooming. These parasitic worms that look like hooks live and grow in your pet's intestines.

Whipworm

Whipworms spread by ingesting soil that has come into contact with the feces of an infected dog. Whipworms are dangerous to dogs' health.
