Adult Cat Vaccinations

One year after they receive vaccinations as a kitten, your cat will need core booster vaccines. They need these booster vaccines every 1 to 3 years, depending on your cat's lifestyle and specific vaccine requirements.

Adult Dog Vaccinations

One year after receiving their initial round of vaccines, your dog will need core booster vaccines. Frequency of boosters will depend on your dog's lifestyle, unique needs, and specific vaccine requirements.

Parasite Prevention

Left untreated, parasites are a serious, ever-present threat to your pet's life. At Thomasville Veterinary Hospital Urgent Care + Surgery, our professional veterinarians take care to prevent these. Our full line of prevention products safeguard your pet from these common parasites:

Fleas, Thomasville Vet


These common, small external parasites suck blood, and can transmit other parasites.

Ticks, Thomasville Vet


Ticks are external parasites that feed on an animal's blood, and can transmit disease.

Earmites, Thomasville Vet

Ear Mites

Ear mites can cause intense itching and lead to infection in the ear canals of your cat or dog.

Heartworm, Thomasville Vet


Mosquitoes commonly transmit these parasitic roundworms to cats, dogs, and other mammals.

Hookworm, Thomasville Vet


Hookworms are intestinal parasites that infect the digestive system of dogs and cats and feed on blood.

Roundworm, Thomasville Vet


Roundworms reside in the intestinal tract, feed on partially digested food, and cause serious issues.

Tapeworm, Thomasville Vet


Parasitic tapeworm eggs are transmitted when an animal swallows an infected flea.

Whipworm, Thomasville Vet


The parasitic whipworm resembles a whip and embeds itself in an animal's intestinal wall.


Dog and cat collars with a name and phone number tag are helpful, but can quickly become outdated and therefore, not as effective. They can also break or fall off easily. A microchip, however, is permanent and can’t be separated from the pet. One of the most effective means of protecting your dog or cat from being lost or stolen is microchipping them.
