Vaccination & Reproductive Surgery Schedule

Up-to-date dog and cat vaccinations are key when it comes to protecting your four-legged friend from a wide variety of contagious and serious diseases. Likewise, having your pet neutered or spayed both protects them from unwanted litters and serious kinds of cancer and other illnesses. These preventive surgeries can also curb behaviors like scooting, howling, roaming and aggression. 

Fayette Veterinary Medical Center is proud to offer Wellness Packages to our clients to help them manage their pet's preventive healthcare based on their age and needs in convenient and affordable monthly payments.

  • 6 to 8 weeks
    • Rhinotracheitis, Calcivirus, Panleukopenia, Chlamydia

    While the following are not kitten vaccinations, spaying, neutering and microchipping help protect your cat from a number of health issues, and therefore fall under the preventive health care umbrella. 

    • 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. At Fayette Veterinary Medical Center, we provide your cat with HomeAgain Brand Microchips.

    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 (females) -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 (males) - 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. At Fayette Veterinary Medical Center, we provide your dog with HomeAgain Brand Microchips.

    Parasite Prevention

    Parasites can pose a serious health risk to pets across Fayette County. If not prevented or promptly treated, parasites can threaten the life of your dog or cat and in some cases may even be transmitted to people living in your home.

    At Fayette Veterinary Medical Center, our parasite prevention products like Proheart Heartworm Injection, Simparica Flea and Tick Prevention, and Revolution Plus Heartworm, Flea and Tick Prevention can help to protect your cat or dog 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.
