A great way to keep common diseases and disorders from developing in the first place is to ensure your pet gets the essential preventative care he or she needs.
At Rancho Park Veterinary Clinic we combine pet vaccinations and parasite prevention with regularly scheduled routine exams to build a solid foundation for your animal's long-term healthcare.
Preventative care offers your pet the best chance at a long, healthy life. Our team can work with you to develop a custom preventative care plan for your cat or dog, tailored to their specific needs.
Current dog and cat vaccinations are critical to protecting your four-legged companion from a range of contagious, often serious, diseases. While having your pet spayed or neutered prevents the birth of unwanted litters, these common veterinary surgeries can also help to protect your pet from some serious types of cancer. They may prevent unwanted behaviors such as roaming, scooting, animal aggression and howling.

Parasites can make both people and animals in the Los Angeles area seriously ill. Left untreated, parasites can become life-threatening for your cat or dog, and in some cases even be transmitted to other pets or people living in your household. Our parasite prevention products can help protect your dog or cat from these common parasites:
Fleas are an external parasite that consumes the blood of mammals and birds. Untreated fleas can quickly spread through your household and cause infection.
Ticks feed on the blood of mammals and are responsible for spreading many serious diseases in pets and people, threatening their health.
While ear mites are tiny, they are highly contagious. They live in the ear canals of dogs, cats and other mammals, and reproduce continuously throughout their life.
Spread through mosquito bites, this thread-like parasitic roundworm lives in the lungs, heart and blood vessels of infected animals.
These parasites feed on an animal's blood and live in the digestive tract of dogs and cats. Hookworms may lead to anemia and other conditions.
The parasitic roundworm makes its home in your pet's intestine and feeds on their partially digested food. In doing so, it robs your pet of nutrients.
Tapeworms are spread through the ingestion of infected fleas during grooming. These hook-like parasitic worms live and grow in your pet's intestines.
Whipworms are spread through the ingestion of soil that has been in contact with an infected dog's feces. Whipworms pose a serious health risk to dogs.
