If your pet needs veterinary care from a veterinarian, our animal hospital is here to help.
Core Vaccines for Kittens and Puppies
Some infectious diseases are so common or so deadly that every dog and every cat is recommended to get protection against them with core vaccines.
Core vaccinations for puppies might offer protection against rabies, distemper, canine hepatitis, and parvovirus. Core vaccinations for kittens may include shots for rabies, feline calicivirus, feline distemper, and feline herpesvirus.
Your veterinarian will ask you some questions about the living situation for your puppy to determine whether your furry friend needs protection against Bordetella, Lyme disease, or more. Kittens may also need protection against feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV), kennel cough, or other different kinds of diseases.
Young pets get some immunity from their mother's milk. Overtime, however, they no longer have this immunity. they need to start getting vaccines to replace the natural immunity that is wearing off.
Vaccines Can Be Required
If you want to board your pet at certain locations, you may need to show proof of vaccination against certain diseases, such as kennel cough. Certain state governments also require your pet to have the rabies vaccine as a public health concern.
If you need to get your pet the vaccinations he needs in order to stay safe or to be boarded, we are here to help. We will likely provide your pet with his vaccinations at a pet wellness exam so that he can be checked for potential health problems and so we can keep track of any developing medical conditions.
