Pet Vaccinations | Dog & Cat Vaccinations in Brentwood

Pet Vaccination & Reproductive Surgery Schedule

Ensuring that your pet's vaccinations are up-to-date is essential when it comes to protecting your furry friend from a range of contagious diseases. Having your pet spayed or neutered not only prevents the birth of unwanted litters, but also helps to protect your pet against some serious forms of cancer. Spaying/neutering may prevent unwanted behaviors such as howling, scooting, roaming, and animal aggression.

Cat Vaccinations

During their first year of life, kittens need the following shots 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

    Although these aren't kitten vaccinations, spaying, neutering and microchipping help protect your cat from a number of health issues, and is part of their care plan. 

    • 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)
    • Bordetella (Optional)
    • Leptospirosis (Optional)
  • 14 to 16 weeks
      • Booster: DHPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus)
      • Rabies
      • Booster: Bordetella (Optional)
      • Booster: Leptospirosis (Optional)

    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
    • Final Booster: DHPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus)
    • Rabies
    • Final Booster: Bordetella (Optional)
    • Final Booster: Leptospirosis (Optional)

Parasite Prevention

Parasites can pose a health threat to people and animals alike. If left untreated, parasites can threaten the life of your cat or dog, and in some cases can even be transmitted to other people or animals living in your household. Our parasite prevention products can help protect your pet from the following common parasites:

Fleas

Fleas are external parasites that drink the blood of birds and mammals. If untreated, fleas can quickly spread through a household.

Ticks

These external parasites consume the blood of mammals and can cause the spread of a number of serious conditions in people and pets. 

Ear Mites

Tiny, easily spread ear mites live in the ear canals of dogs, cats and other mammals. These parasites reproduce continuously throughout their lifespan. 

Heartworm

This thread-like parasitic roundworm spreads via mosquito bites and lives inside the heart, lungs and blood vessels of infected animals.

Hookworm

These parasites are found in the digestive tract of cats and dogs, where they consume blood. Hookworms can lead to anemia and other serious conditions.

Roundworm

This parasitic worm lives in the intestine and feeds on partially digested food. This parasite can rob your pet of vital nutrients necessary to stay healthy.

Tapeworm

Tapeworms are spread through the swallowing of infected fleas during an animal's grooming. These hook-like parasitic worms live and grow in the host'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.
