Pet Vaccinations Remain Crucial Part of Pet Wellness Care
Schedule Pet Booster Shots for Disease Prevention
Our animal hospital provides core vaccinations for dogs and cats. All dogs should receive the combined DHPP shot. This shot protects against distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus and parainfluenza. Depending on your pet’s lifestyle, we may also recommend the leptospirosis and bordetella vaccinations. For cats, the feline core vaccination series is the FVRCCP vaccine (feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, chlamydia and panleukopenia). Some cats may also benefit from vaccination against Feline Leukemia. Our veterinarian works closely with pet owners to ensure dogs and cats receive the right pet vaccinations for their wellness needs.
Pet vaccinations protection does not last forever. Just like with human vaccines, pet vaccines require boosters to remain effective. Without up-to-date protection, an ordinary trip to the dog park could turn deadly for your pet if your pet contracts a contagious illness. Many of these diseases, including distemper, do not immediately cause symptoms. Consequently, it is possible for a pet to appear “healthy” even though it is sick. Updated vaccinations are the best line of defense. Pet booster shots are typically administered every one or three years. The vaccination schedule is determined by our veterinarian and the vaccine manufacturer, and may vary from pet to pet.
Puppies and kittens should receive a series of vaccinations to protect them from illness while their immune systems develop. The puppy/kitten vaccination series typically begins at 6 - 8 weeks of age. Pet vaccine boosters are administered every 3 - 4 weeks until 16 - 18 weeks of age. Your pet’s specific vaccination schedule may vary based on when your puppy or kitten begins the vaccine series.
