Pet Vaccinations Explained
The simplest explanation of pet vaccinations is that they are classified as nonliving or modified live vaccines. This indicates whether the organisms they contain are dead or purified.
Vaccines with living cultures are proven to provide the best protection for your pet because they can activate the immune system to build stronger immunity to the organisms. Targeting the immune system, but not overwhelming it, is the crux of how vaccines work.
At Animal Medical & Surgical Hospital, we offer the most innovative technologies in pet vaccines because your pet’s health is important to us. We are dedicated to providing the very best protection on the market for your pet.
DHLP – Canine Distemper Complex Vaccine
The Canine Distemper Complex vaccine, or DHLP, is a 3-year vaccine that protects dogs from the canine distemper virus, leptospirosis, infectious canine hepatitis, and parainfluenza.
The parvovirus vaccine is given to puppies and adult dogs on a specific dosage schedule, depending on their age. It protects dogs from canine parvovirus, which can be deadly if not treated quickly.
The coronavirus (“CCoV”) vaccine is regularly included with the DHLP dose. However, not all dogs require this vaccine. This virus type is not to be confused with the coronavirus type that causes COVID-19. It protects dogs against illness from living in groups or gatherings like a kennel or shelter.
Lyme Disease Vaccine
The Lyme Disease vaccine is given to puppies and adult dogs on a specific dosage schedule depending on their age. It protects dogs from Lyme Disease transmitted through tick bites.
Bordetella and Bronchi-Shield Vaccine
The Bordetella and Bronchi-Shield vaccine is given to dogs annually to protect against Bordetella bronchiseptica. This upper respiratory bacterial infection produces “Kennel Cough,” transmitted from dog to dog. Not all dogs require this vaccine.
The Rattlesnake vaccine is given to dogs 30 days before possible rattlesnake exposure. It does not stop rattlesnake poisoning but may minimize the potency long enough to seek veterinarian care.
FVRCPC – Feline Distemper Complex Vaccine
The Feline Distemper Complex vaccine, or FVRCPC, is given to cats annually to protect against feline calicivirus, feline panleukopenia, and feline viral rhinotracheitis.
FeLV – Feline Leukemia Vaccine
The Feline Leukemia vaccine, or FeLV, is given to cats annually to begin and then every three years. It protects cats from the feline leukemia virus that causes cancer and is incurable.
Dogs & Cats
The Rabies vaccine is typically given to dogs and cats about every three years to protect them from the rabies virus that transmits through saliva. This vaccination is required by law in all U.S. states.
