Vaccination & Reproductive Surgery Schedule

Keeping your cat or dog's vaccinations current is essential when it comes to protecting your four-legged companion from a range of contagious, often serious, diseases. 

Our San Gabriel vets recommend spaying or neutering your pet if you are not raising them specifically for the purpose of breeding. Spay/neuter procedures not only prevent the birth of an unwanted litter; these common veterinary surgeries can also help to protect your pet against some serious forms of cancer. They may also prevent unwanted behaviors such as howling, scooting, roaming, and animal aggression.

Cat Vaccinations & Parasite Preventives

In their first year of life, the following kitten shots and parasite preventives are needed to protect them from serious diseases. 

  • 6 to 8 weeks
    • FVRCP (Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, Panleukopenia)
    • Flea Control
    • Fecal Exam (Parasite Screening)
    • Deworming #1
  • 9 to 11 weeks
    • Booster: FVRCP (Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, Panleukopenia)

      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
      • 3-year Booster: Rabies
      • 3-year Booster: FVRCP (Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, Panleukopenia)

      Parasite Prevention

      Parasites pose a serious health threat to people and animals in the San Gabriel area. Left untreated, parasites can threaten the life of your cat or dog, and in some cases can even be transmitted to other people or pets living in your household. Our parasite prevention products can help protect your dog or cat from 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.
