Vaccines help prepare your pet's immune system and protects them from dangerous and fatal diseases. While California state law requires all dogs be vaccinated for Rabies, there other vaccinations that can protect your pet from serious but preventable diseases. Consult us today to find out what vaccines are recommended for your pet based on their age, medical history, environment, travel habits, and lifestyle.
Annual core vaccinations include Rabies, DA2PP (Distemper/Parvo), and Bordetella, along with a current fecal fest to look for parasites. For cats, core vaccinations include Rabies, FVRCP, also along with current fecal test.
Additional vaccinations for dogs that accompany you while hiking or camping include the rattlesnake vaccine and the Lyme vaccine (tick-borne disease). Dogs that attend doggie day care or boarding facilities may also benefit from the canine influenza vaccine.
Discount VACCINE CLINIC
We offer discounted vaccinations every Wednesdays from 2:00pm to 5:00pm and Saturdays 10:00am to 1:00pm. To make your visit a smooth one for you and your pet, you can schedule an appointment with us here. Walk-in vaccination visits are available for existing patients with a current exam.
PUPPY AND KITTEN CARE

A microchip is a permanent ID that is the size of a grain of rice that is placed beneath your pet's skin. That ID is associated with all your contact information. In the event your pet gets lost or separated from you, animal hospitals and shelters have the ability to scan the chip and contact you. Microchips give your pet the best chance of coming back home.
Apart from spay, neuter, and dental surgeries, we also perform general surgeries that covers almost all of the parts of the body. This includes anything from removing foreign objects to mass removals. Our board certified veterinarian has been extensively trained and will create a treatment plan based on your pet’s diagnosis and medical history.
SKIN + EAR CARE
Skin and ear care are very common problems that can occur all year round and especially during the hot and allergy season. It is important to keep up with regular bathing and cleaning of both the skin and the ears to help prevent any types of infection occurring. Skin disease or irritation can cause distress. In trying to diagnose and treat skin disorders, your role as a pet owner is essential. Discovering what causes flare-ups and irritation is very important. Pay attention to your pet’s reaction after eating, playing outside, and interacting with other animals. During your appointment, our veterinarian will discuss your observations to determine a series of laboratory tests that will help diagnose or treat your pet’s skin or ear issues.
Our digital radiology gives our practice the ability to retrieve X-rays almost instantly. We are able to digitally zoom in/out and enhance the brightness and contrast, giving us more control to help us diagnose your pet. Digital X-rays can help us identify foreign objects in your pet’s body, fractured or broken bones, as well as monitoring ongoing conditions that require a series of images.
We use our ultrasound sonography to expose a small portion of the body to high frequency waves. This produces pictures in real-time for diagnosis such as pregnancies. We are also able to capture the structure and movement of your pet’s internal organs with minimal restraint or sedation. This helps the doctor diagnose your pet without any exposure to radiation.
SPAY & NEUTER
We here at Animal Medical Center of Orange are dedicated to the well being of our patients. Spaying and neutering your pet greatly reduces the risk of some serious, possibly fatal, medical conditions such as breast cancer, prostate cancer, and testicular cancer. Altering them also provides behavioral benefits such as reduced territory marking, possessive/aggressive tendencies, and reduced inclination to roam.
In the act of spaying and neutering your pet, you'll also help control the pet homelessness and overpopulation crises in animal shelters and humane societies, ultimately lowering euthanasia rates in these facilities.
COMPLETE DENTAL CARE
Maintaining your pets dental health is vital to their comfort and overall well being. Dental disease is painful and can cause secondary problems including heart disease and systemic infections. We recommend doing regular dental cleanings to prevent tooth decay and tooth loss. Our cleanings are done under general anesthesia to reduce stress/fear and to ensure a safe and thorough cleaning.
Discounted dental procedures are available on the first Tuesday of every month with a recent exam and blood work.
Upcoming Discounted Dental Dates:
July 2, 2019
August 6, 2019
September 3, 2019
October 1, 2019
November 5, 2019
We understand that sometimes clients feel more comfortable with more than one medical opinion we would be more than happy to review all prior medical history and create a modified health plan. If your pet is in need of a referral to a specialty service that is beyond our general practice (i.e. orthopedics, internal medicine, dermatology, oncology, etc.), we will set you up with one of the many specialty clinics that best suits your pet's needs. Schedule a comprehensive physical exam with us today to get started.
We provide emergency treatment during our normal hours of operation. Fast, responsible care taking is critical when an emergency occurs. Our skilled technicians and knowledgeable veterinarians work together seamlessly to quickly respond to your ailing pet. Please call our office the moment an accident happens or just bring your pet in with no appointment necessary. However, when given notice before you and your pet arrive, we can prepare for all services that might be necessary.
Here is a list of emergency situations that must seek out emergency care immediately:
Critical injuries or trauma (car accident, broken bone, animal attack)
Diarrhea or vomiting that continues for long periods of time
Fever, shock, or lethargy
Poison ingestion (suspected or observed)
Severe pain, collapse, seizure
Unable to urinate (for male cats)
Difficulty giving birth
If you think your pet may have ingested poisonous items and our office is not currently open, we advise you to call ASPCA at (888) 426-4435.
