Vaccination & Reproductive Surgery

Up to date cat and dog vaccinations are key when it comes to the protection of your furry friend from a wide variety of serious and contagious diseases.

Additionally, have your pet neutered or spayed will help to prevent the birth of unwanted litters. Not only that, but it can also prevent some serious diseases (like cancer) and prevent unwanted behaviors like scooting, howling, aggression and roaming.

Parasite Prevention

Parasites can pose a serious risk to your pet or even your own health in the Tucson area. If untreated, parasites can threaten the life of your dog or cat too, or be transmitted to to other pets or people living in your house. Our parasite prevention treatments can protect your cat or dog from any of the following commonly encountered 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 repeatedly 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.
