Pet Vaccinations for Auburn Companions
Routine vaccinations not only keep your pet healthy but ensure the wellbeing of the entire Auburn pet community. One infected animal can wreak havoc on pets whose vaccinations are not up-to-date. Think of all the times your pet is in contact with others of its kind: the dog park, popular trail walks, at boarding and daycare facilities, etc. In addition, critters such as insects and other wildlife can also transmit infections to your pet. Read on to learn more about pet vaccinations.
PetVet Animal Health Center carries all the current pet vaccinations for canines. We offer core vaccines recommended for every dog, as well as lifestyle specific vaccines given on a case-by-case basis.
Core dog vaccinations include:
- DA2PPv (distemper, adenovirus, parainfluenza and parvovirus)
Non-core vaccines include:
- Bordetella (kennel cough) for dogs who often visit boarding facilities, groomers, or dog parks.
- Influenza (H3N8 and H3N2), also for dogs that visit boarding facilities, groomers, or dog parks.
Whether outdoor or indoor, cats are susceptible to contagious diseases. Vaccines help protect your cat, but can sometimes cause problems of their own. To minimize their risk, we use PureVax Rabies and Leukemia vaccines, which are non-adjuvanted and less likely to cause any type of injection site issues such as inflammation or sarcoma.
Core cat vaccines include:
- FVRCP (feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia)
- Rabies vaccine
Non-core cat vaccines include:
- Feline leukemia vaccine (FeLV), suggested for all kittens and some adult cats, particularly those who spend any time outdoors.
If you recently adopted a kitten from a shelter and are unsure of their medical history, we offer screenings for feline leukemia virus and feline immunodeficiency virus. Knowing what your kitten has been exposed to not only helps us care for them, but protects other cats in your household who would be susceptible.
