Vaccinations and Wellness Care

dogvaccine

  Preventative care is one of the most important aspects of maintaining your pet’s health. Regular wellness visits and pet vaccinations are the most effective way to guard against major health issues and infectious diseases. Not only can these infectious agents adversely affect the well-being of your pet, but some are even transmittable to humans. We strongly recommend annual vaccinations to help protect your pets as well as the rest of your family from numerous disease threats including:

Dogs

  • Rabies – a contagious and fatal viral disease of mammals that causes madness and convulsions. It is transmissible through the saliva to humans.
  • Bordetella - (sometimes called kennel cough) Aids in the prevention of canine infectious tracheobronchitis caused by Bordetella bronchiseptica

DAPPV + L4  includes:

  • Leptospirosis – a bacterial infection that can affect all breeds and sizes of dogs. Lepto can be a very serious disease and can be fatal if not diagnosed and treated early. Left untreated, it can develop into a more severe, life-threatening illness that affects the kidneys, liver, brain, lungs, and heart. Initial signs of leptospirosis include fever, lethargy, and lack of appetite. However, if lepto is caught early, it responds well to antibiotics. The disease is caused by spiral-shaped bacteria called leptospires that live in water or warm, wet soil.
  • Canine Distemper Virus - Canine distemper is a highly contagious, often fatal disease, caused by a virus that attacks the respiratory, gastrointestinal, and the nervous systems. Its epidemiology is complicated by the large number of species susceptible to infection.
  • Canine Parvovirus – a highly contagious viral illness that manifests itself in two different forms. The more common form is the intestinal form, which is characterized by vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss, and lack of appetite (anorexia). The less common form is the cardiac form, which attacks the heart muscles of very young puppies, often leading to death.
  • Infectious Canine Hepatitis – an acute liver infection in dogs caused by canine adenovirus type-1 (CAV-1). The virus is spread in the feces, urine, blood, saliva, and nasal discharge of infected dogs. It is contracted through the mouth or nose, where it replicates in the tonsils. The virus then infects the liver and kidneys.

   In addition to vaccinations, we offer heartworm testing, flea, tick and heartworm preventatives. Refer back to our Products page.


Cats

  • Rabies – a contagious and fatal viral disease of mammals that causes madness and convulsions. It is transmissible through the saliva to humans.
  • Feline Leukemia Virus  (FeLV) - (for “at risk” cats) a retrovirus that can be transmitted from infected cats when the transfer of saliva or nasal secretions is involved. If not defeated by the animal’s immune system, the virus can cause diseases which can be lethal.

*Feline Leukemia/FIV testing is required before vaccine is given. 

FVRCP includes:

  • Feline Panleukopenia - Panleukopenia (sometimes called feline distemper) is a highly contagious, severe infection that causes gastrointestinal, immune system, and nervous system disease.
  • Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis - A virus, just like a human common cold, that causes a upper respiratory tract infection that is easily transmitted from one cat to another.  Kittens are particularly affected but this disease can be dangerous in any unprotected cat.
  • Feline Calicivirus - A widespread and highly contagious virus that is another major cause of upper respiratory infection in cats. 
  • Chlamydophila - This disease is an extremely contagious bacteria that will infect the eyes, causing conjunctivitis. They may also infect the lungs, digestive tract, and reproductive tract.
