Vaccinations for Dogs

Vaccinating our animals is important to their health and well-being.  We recommend your pets are updated on vaccinations and examined thoroughly each year.  We recommend the following vaccines for adult  dogs:

  • Rabies vaccine (a 3 year vaccine; includes county rabies tag)
  • Bordetella intranasal vaccine (a yearly vaccine that helps prevent kennel cough; also available in injectable form)
  • Distemper-Adenovirus Type 2-Paravirus vaccine (a 3 year vaccine that prevents several contagious viruses)
  • Leptospirosis vaccine (a bacterial infection that is stopped by a yearly vaccine)

While your dog is getting vaccinations, we also recommend getting a heartworm test and a fecal sample to test for internal parasites. 

Puppies are required to have several boosters.  The series of shots start at 6 weeks; they are updated at 9 weeks, 12 weeks, and end at 16 weeks with a Rabies vaccination. 

Vaccinations for Cats

Like dogs, cats also have a series of vaccines.  We recommend the following vaccines for adult cats:

  • Feline Rhinotracheitis-Calici-Panleukopenia vaccine  (FVRCP for short; prevents upper respiratory virus)
  • Rabies vaccine (a yearly vaccine; includes county rabies tag)
  • Feline Leukemia (a yearly vaccine recommend for outdoor cats)

Kittens also have a series of boosters to help their immune system.  Kittens start their first set at 6-8 weeks.  They follow up with a second set at 9-12 weeks and get their third set and Rabies vaccine at 16 weeks.
