At Veterinary Center of Parker, Inc., we believe that one of the most important aspects of caring for your pet’s health is vaccinating them against potential diseases. There are a variety of diseases that affect our pets and animals, so proper vaccination is vital in protecting them from the many types of illnesses they are susceptible to.
Rabies – This vaccine is required by state law and can only be administered by a licensed veterinarian. Rabies is a fatal virus that is passed to other pets and people through the saliva of an infected animal.
DA2PP (Distemper) – A combination vaccine that protects your dog against four diseases (distemper, adenovirus-2, parainfluenza, and parvovirus). These diseases are highly contagious and can attack your pet’s nervous system, respiratory system, and gastrointestinal tract causing major complications and can be life-threatening.
Bordetella – This vaccine protects your pet against the airborne virus commonly known as “kennel cough.” This virus causes respiratory problems and is highly contagious. It is easily spread in areas where large numbers of dogs are confined such as boarding, daycare, dog parks, etc.
Influenza – The canine influenza vaccine protects against a contagious respiratory infection and is recommended if your pet is in kennel or social situations like daycare, boarding, puppy training classes, etc.
Leptospirosis – This vaccine protects against a bacteria that can cause deadly kidney or liver disease. Leptospirosis is zoonotic, meaning it can be transmitted to people causing the same issues. This vaccine is recommended for pets who are frequently around lakes, ponds, rivers (as this is a breeding ground for this virus), or are exposed to wildlife (as they transmit the disease in their urine).
Rabies – This vaccine is required by state law and can only be administered by a licensed veterinarian. Rabies is a fatal bacteria that is passed to other pets and people through the saliva of an infected animal.
FVRCP (Feline Distemper) – A combination vaccine that protects your cat against three diseases (rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia). These diseases are highly contagious and attack your pet’s respiratory system, nervous system, and gastrointestinal tract causing major complications and can be life-threatening.
Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) – This vaccine helps protect your pet against the disease that impairs the immune system and causes certain types of cancer. This virus infection is responsible for a majority of deaths in household cats, affecting all breeds. The disease is spread through cat to cat contact and generally through bite wounds. This vaccine is recommended for multiple cat households or those cats that roam outdoors.
