Spanish Trail Pet Clinic focuses on preventive care to take care of diseases and disorders in dogs and cats before they have a chance to develop in the first place.
Our Tucson vets Combine routine exams, pet vaccinations, and parasite prevention medication to form the foundation of your animal's routine healthcare.
Preventive care gives your pet the best chance at a long, healthy life. Our team works with our clients to create custom preventive care plans for each pet's unique needs.
When taking home a new pet, it's important to make sure they receive all of their mandatory pet vaccinations in a timely fashion. Spanish Trail Pet Clinic also recommends spays or neuters for all dogs and cats not being raised specifically for breeding purposes. Reproductive surgery not only prevents unwanted litters, it also reduces the chances of cancer in pets while discouraging unwanted behaviors like howling, scooting, roaming, and general aggression.
Our Tucson vets work with you to make a schedule that is right for you and your pet to make sure they receive all their vaccines and reproductive surgery in their critical first year of veterinary care. We've included below the general schedule we recommend for cat and dog vaccinations.

Parasites pose a serious health threat to people and animals in the Tucson area. Left untreated, parasites can threaten the life of your cat or dog, and in some cases can even be transmitted to other people or pets living in your household. Our parasite prevention products can help protect your dog or cat from the following common parasites:
Fleas are external parasites that feed on the blood of birds and mammals. Left untreated, fleas can quickly spread throughout your household.
These external parasites consume the blood of mammals and are responsible for the spread of a number of serious conditions in people and pets.
Tiny, highly contagious ear mites reside in the ear canals of dogs, cats and other mammals. These parasites reproduce continuously throughout their lifespan.
This thread-like parasitic roundworm is spread through mosquito bites and makes its home in the heart, lungs and blood vessels of infected animals.
These parasites live in the digestive tract of cats and dogs, where they feed on the pet's blood. Hookworms can lead to anemia and other serious conditions.
This parasitic worm lives in the intestine and feeds on partially digested intestinal contents. This parasite can rob your pet of vital nutrients necessary to stay healthy.
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.
