Protecting Your Furry Family Member

Combined with wellness exams, parasite prevention and vaccinations are the foundation of your pet's annual preventive care. These services aim to preserve your pet's good health and avoid the need for more intensive treatments.

We administer vaccinations that are a combination of core and lifestyle vaccinations. Core vaccinations are standard and required for all companion animals, while lifestyle vaccinations are more dependent on the location and activities of your cat or dog.

There are a variety of parasites lurking in our environment at all times of the year, including intestinal parasites, fleas and ticks. Ongoing parasite prevention can help reduce the risk of your cat or dog contracting these pests.

Preventive care gives your pet their best chance at a long, healthy life. Our team will assess your pet's risk factors and lifestyle and then work with you to create a preventive care plan to meet your pet's unique needs.

Vaccinations & Parasite Prevention Services, Thornhill

Cat & Dog Vaccinations

Providing your pet with their core vaccinations can help protect them against several very serious, highly contagious conditions that can be costly to treat – and potentially deadly.

In their first year of life, puppies and kittens should receive scheduled vaccines to help protect them from a range of serious diseases. Once your cat or dog reaches a year old, they will be considered an adult. At this time, your veterinarian may recommend routine booster vaccinations every one to three years.

Parasite Prevention

Preventive care is administered to protect your companion against having to deal with the uncomfortable and sometimes deadly impact of both internal and external parasites.

Our parasite prevention products can help protect your dog or cat from common parasites like fleas, ticks, ear mites, heartworms and more.

Parasites can not only make your cat or dog their host, they can even be transmitted to the human members of your family.

Spaying & Neutering

Spaying or neutering your cat or dog prevents the birth of unwanted litters, protects your pet against various illnesses, and can help prevent unwanted behaviours.

These common surgical procedures are performed under general anesthesia at our veterinary hospital in Thornhill.

We can place a tiny microchip under your pet's skin as a permanent form of pet identification.

Once your cat or dog has been microchipped, you register the chip's serial number and your pet's information with the company that produced the chip.

By matching your companion's information with the serial number of the microchip, there's a better chance that they can be traced back to you.
