Pet Health Care Begins with Timely Vaccinations

Vaccinations for your Fremont dog or cat are not only safe and effective; they are an important and fundamental piece of the preventative healthcare plan for your pets. Advances in veterinary immunology have made diseases that once were relatively common and fatal to pets easily preventable through proper pet health care. There are also pet vaccines—such as for rabies and other zoonotic diseases—that help protect your family from very dangerous and difficult to treat illnesses. Additionally, with each passing year, veterinary science is improving on existent dog/cat vaccinations, as well as increasing our ability to prevent an even wider array of contagious diseases.

Ace Animal Hospital’s pet vaccination clinic protocol is tailored to American Veterinary Medical Association guidelines, the lifestyle of your pet, as well as to the diseases he or she is most likely to encounter in our region of the country. In addition to dog/cat vaccines for diseases such as rabies and distemper we may also recommend yearly pet vaccinations for Lyme for dogs.

Flea Control and Prevention

Fleas cause itching in pets, but even worse, they carry a number of harmful diseases. We’ll screen for them during your pet’s wellness exam, and if we find them, prescribe potent medications to eliminate them from your pet and home.

Tick Control and Prevention

Ticks carry Lyme Disease, a potentially debilitating disease that affects both pets and humans. They also carry other dangerous diseases such as Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever—so for every pet that ventures outdoors, we recommend anti-tick preventive measures such vaccines, collars or oral medications, as necessary.

Heartworm Prevention

Heartworm is a potentially fatal disease that can affect both dogs and cats—with heartworms growing to be up to a foot long as they reside in the animal host’s heart, lungs or circulatory system. Prevention is critical and can be accomplished with regular blood testing and effective heartworm prevention medications.
