Preventive health care, including routine checkups, vaccinations, and parasite prevention, is key to lifelong health for cats and dogs of all ages.

We'll work with you to create a custom plan to meet your cat's or dog's specific health and lifestyle needs.
Prevent your pet from contracting contagious diseases by bringing them in for extremely important routine vaccinations.
We follow the AAHA’s guidelines for immunizations, and are highly knowledgeable about how to protect them against emerging diseases.
During their first year, kittens require several vaccinations and procedures to prevent serious diseases. As they grow, they'll need annual boosters.
Spaying, neutering and microchipping your cat can protect them from several health problems and prevent unwanted pregnancies.
Puppies need a set of vaccinations in the first year of life to prevent many fatal diseases and to protect their developing immune system.
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.
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.
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:
These common, small external parasites suck blood, and can transmit other parasites.
Ticks are external parasites that feed on an animal's blood, and can transmit disease.
Ear mites can cause intense itching and lead to infection in the ear canals of your cat or dog.
Mosquitoes commonly transmit these parasitic roundworms to cats, dogs, and other mammals.
Hookworms are intestinal parasites that infect the digestive system of dogs and cats and feed on blood.
Roundworms reside in the intestinal tract, feed on partially digested food, and cause serious issues.
Parasitic tapeworm eggs are transmitted when an animal swallows an infected flea.
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Dog and cat collars with a name and phone number tag are helpful, but can quickly become outdated and therefore, not as effective.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.
