Vaccination & Reproductive Surgery Schedule

Protecting your pet is the top priority for our vets in Fountain Valley. One way we do that is through spay and neuter surgeries. These surgeries can help limit undesirable behaviors such as howling, scooting, roaming, and animal aggression and can eliminate the chance of unwanted litters. Our vets are also able to suggest a vaccination schedule to prevent your pet from developing a range of contagious, and often serious, diseases.

Parasite Prevention

Parasites are not only a serious health concern for your pet but also have the ability to be transmitted to any humans or other animals that are in contact with an infected pet. Our vets in the Fountain Valley area offer a range of parasite prevention products to help protect you and your pet from the following common parasites:

Fleas

Fleas are external parasites that live on the skin and feed on the blood of birds and mammals. Fleas can reproduce and spread quickly throughout your home.

Ticks

These external parasites bury into the skin and survive on the blood of mammals and are capable of spreading several conditions to both humans and animals. 

Ear Mites

Ear mites are very tiny and highly contagious. These parasites invade the ear canals of dogs, cats, and other mammals. These parasites are known for being able to consistently reproduce throughout their life. 

Heartworm

This thread-like parasitic roundworm is typically spread through the open wound of a mosquito bite and makes its way to the heart, lungs, and blood vessels of infected animals. 

Hookworm

These parasites prefer to live within the digestive tract of animals where they feed internally on the blood of the animal. Hookworms can cause anemia and other serious conditions in our pets. 

Roundworm

Roundworms are parasitic worms that live in your pet's intestines and survive on the partially digested intestinal contents. This parasite can rob your pet of vital nutrients necessary to stay healthy.

Tapeworm

Tapeworms spread easily through fleas that are ingested by your pet during grooming sessions. These hook-like parasitic worms thrive within the intestines of the host animal.

Whipworm

Whipworms are spread when a dog comes into contact with soil that contains the feces of an infected dog. Whipworms pose a serious health risk to dogs.
