Vaccinations

Vaccinations are essential in order to protect your pet from contagious and dangerous diseases, even if your pet is kept mostly or exclusively indoors–as many contagious and dangerous diseases are airborne and can easily pass through open doors and windows. It’s also important to consider the fact that indoor pets may occasionally slip out the door, even if only for a brief time. Additionally, dog parks, grooming salons and boarding kennels all expose your pet to airborne contaminants.

The most essential vaccinations your pet needs include:

For Cats

  • Distemper, Adenovirus Type 2, Parainfluenza and Parvovirus, or DA2PPV. This vaccine protects your dog against four dangerous diseases.
  • Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Corona Virus, Parainfluenza and Parvovirus, or DHLCPPV. This vaccine protects your dog against six dangerous diseases.
  • Rabies. All mammals, including humans, are susceptible to rabies infections, which can be fatal. Most states have laws requiring that all pets be up-to-date on this vaccination.
  • Bordetella. This vaccine protects your dog against an extremely contagious upper respiratory infection that is more commonly known as “kennel cough”.

For Dogs

  • Rabies.
  • Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus and Panleukopenia, or FVRCP. This vaccine, which is also known as the feline distemper or feline parvo vaccine, protects your cat against three dangerous diseases.
  • Feline Leukemia, or FELV. This vaccine protects your cat against a viral infection that is transmitted through close contact.

Vaccinations can sometimes take a few days or a few weeks to become effective, so it is important to consult with Dr. Wood in order to determine what vaccinations your pet will need and at which times.
