Vaccinations for your pet are important when implementing a preventative and pro-active approach to ensuring your pet’s health status and quality of life. Our vaccine protocols and recommendations are based on your individual pet’s age, life style and risk of disease from their environment. The frequency of immunizations will depend on a variety of factors including the animal’s age, vaccination history and the duration of protection of the vaccine.
Pet Vaccinations can also help protect people from disease as some of the diseases we are vaccinating our pets for are considered “zoonotic.” This means that these diseases are passed from animals to people, some of which can be life threatening. We emphasize safety for pets and people when customizing vaccines recommendations.
Typically, mature dogs will be protected against distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parainfluenza, parvo virus, kennel cough and, of course, rabies.
For adult cats, immunizations typically include panleukopenia (distemper), rabies, feline rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, chlamydia and feline leukemia.
