Vaccinations for Dogs & Cats
Dogs and cats need ongoing vaccinations against diseases to ensure they stay happy, healthy and safe. Our knowledgeable staff and veterinarians will talk to you about your pet’s specific lifestyle and recommend the vaccinations needed.
If your puppy or kitten is less than 6 months, you will want to visit our Florence Animal Hospital to prevent the risk of them contracting certain diseases that are common among young animals.
Your pets vaccination schedule can vary depending on your pets age, activity level, health status, lifestyle, the likelihood of disease exposure, etc.

Common Dog and Cat Parasites & Diseases
Dogs and cats are likely to become infected with parasites at some point in their lives.

If left undetected and untreated, they will affect your pet’s well-being, from simply being irritating to causing a variety of life-threatening conditions.
Infected by mosquito bites
When the infected mosquito bites another dog, the mosquito spreads the infective larvae to your dog through the bite wound.

It takes about 6 to 7 months for the infective larvae to mature into adult heartworms.

Diseases Your Pet Get's From Ticks
Some ticks carry more than one of these diseases, which can lead to co-infection.

Some are also "zoonotic", meaning they can infect humans and other non-canine family members. Learn More
