Cat & Dog Vaccinations

dots

Pets are vulnerable to viruses and other germs they can catch from other animals or just from going outside. Many of these diseases can make pets very sick and some, such as rabies, can be deadly. Vaccines safely allow your pet to develop natural immunity to these threats. 

 

Cats should be immunized against:

  • Feline distemper, series starting at 6 to 8 weeks
  • Feline herpes, series starting at 6 to 8 weeks
  • Feline calcivirus, series starting at 6 to 8 weeks
  • Rabies, as early as 12 weeks
  • Feline leukemia (particularly outdoor cats) 

 

Dogs should be immunized against:

  • Parvovirus, series starting at 6 to 8 weeks
  • Distemper, series starting at 6 to 8 weeks
  • Canine hepatitis, series starting at 6 to 8 weeks
  • Rabies, as early as 12 weeks

Once initial vaccinations are complete, your pet may need some annual boosters, such as the rabies vaccine, at their annual checkup.

If you’re behind the recommended vaccination schedule for your pet, we recommend scheduling a catch-up visit as soon as possible. We can evaluate any risks of missed vaccinations and develop a schedule for catching up. Your pet may simply need booster shots, or we may need to start the vaccine series from the beginning.

If your pet is due for vaccines, or if you’re unsure whether shots are up to date, schedule a wellness care visit. We can help evaluate your pet’s immunity and risk, and determine if catch-up vaccines are necessary, and we’re always happy to answer any questions you might have about vaccinations.
