At Advanced Care Animal Clinic, we work hard to keep common diseases and disorders from developing in the first place by focusing on preventive care.
Combined with regularly scheduled routine exams, pet vaccinations and parasite prevention form a solid foundation for your animal's routine healthcare.
Preventive care allows your pet the best chance at a long, healthy life. Our team will work with you to develop a custom preventive care plan for your dog or cat.
Current dog and cat vaccinations are critical to protect your four-legged family member from a variety of contagious, often serious, diseases. Having your pet spayed or neutered will not only prevent the birth of unwanted litters; these common veterinary surgeries can also help to protect your pet against some serious forms of cancer. They may also prevent unwanted behaviors such as animal aggression, scooting, roaming and howling.
Kittens need these shots in their first year of life to protect them from dangerous diseases.

Both people and animals in the Smokey Point area can experience serious health complications due to parasite infections. Left untreated, parasites can be life-threatening for your dog or cat, and in some cases may even be transmitted to other pets or people living in your household. With our parasite prevention products, you can help protect your cat or dog from these common parasites:
These tiny external parasites feed on mammals' and birds' blood. Left untreated, fleas multiply and are capable of quickly spreading through your household.
Ticks are responsible for spreading numerous serious conditions in pets and people. They latch on easily and consume the blood of mammals.
While tiny, ear mites are highly contagious and live in the ear canals of cats, dogs and other mammals. They continuously reproduce throughout their lifespan.
Spread through mosquito bites, this parasitic roundworm resides and thrives in the lungs, heart and blood vessels of infected animals.
Hookworms live in the digestive tract of dogs and cats and feed on your pet's blood. These parasites can lead to anemia and other serious conditions.
roundworms can rob your pet of vital nutrients they need to stay healthy. They make their home in the intestine and feed on intestinal contents.
Tapeworms are hook-like parasitic worms that live and grow in your pet's intestines. They spread if your pet ingests infected fleas while grooming.
Whipworms pose a serious health threat to dogs. They spread if your dog ingests soil that has been in contact with an infected dog's feces.
