Vaccines

Vaccinations are a crucial part to protecting your pet’s health and have been proven to save the lives of countless animals. Staying up to date with your pet’s shots can help prevent the spread of infectious diseases that can often lead to serious and/or fatal consequences. The symptoms can be painful and could lead to other long-term effects.

Canine Vaccines

DA2PP (core)

A combination vaccine for your dog that protects them against four primary canine diseases - distemper, adenovirus-2, parainfluenza and parvovirus. Because these diseases are contagious and can be potentially fatal, regular vaccination is recommended to reduce your pet's risk.

Leptospirosis (lifestyle)

Leptospirosis is a bacterial disease that attacks the kidneys or liver in both dogs and people. Dogs typically contract it through direct contact with urine from an infected animal (skunks, racoons etc.) by licking or eating grass, and drinking from a puddle or body of water.

Rabies (core)

Your dog must be vaccinated at the age of 3 months and kept up-to-date throughout their life, as it is the only vaccine required by law. Rabies can be transmitted to other animals and people through or a bite or saliva of an infected animal. Rabies attacks the brain and nervous system and is nearly always fatal.

Bordetella (lifestyle)

The Bordetella vaccine is given to dogs who are exposed to other dogs in confined spaces to prevent kennel cough. Similar to the flu shot for people, dogs can still contract kennel cough but tend to have less serious symptoms. It is highly contagious which is why canine facilities, such as dog daycare centers, boarding kennels, dog parks, and training classes often require dogs to have the vaccine. 

Feline Vaccine

FVRCP (core)

A combination vaccine for your cat that protects against three primary diseases - feline viral rhinotracheitis (feline herpesvirus), calicivirus, and panleukopenia (feline distemper). Because these viruses have the potential to be fatal, regular vaccination is recommended to reduce your pet's risk.

Leukemia (lifestyle)

Feline leukemia virus (FeLV) only infects cats, depresses the immune system and tends to lead to persistent infection. Although it is not considered a core vaccine it is highly recommended for cats that spend time outdoors. There is no treatment to eliminate the FeLV virus from the body, therefore, prevention through vaccination is highly recommended.

Rabies (core)

Your cat must be vaccinated at the age of 3 months and kept up-to-date throughout their life, as it is the only vaccine required by law. Rabies can be transmitted to other animals and people through a scratch or a bite that breaks skin.
