Vaccinations

We offer the full range of vaccinations for both dogs and cats. Please see the list below for details for each vaccination.
 

DOGS

•DHPP: (Distemper/Hepatitis/Parainfluenza/Parvovirus)
Start puppies at 6-8 weeks of age. Vaccinate every 21 days until last vaccine is given (at 16 weeks). If a dog is 16 weeks or older and has not been vaccinated, then a minimum of two vaccines is required given 21 days apart. Although annual DHPP vaccines are recommended, alternative schedules can be discussed with a doctor.
 
•Lyme
Series of two vaccines given 21 days apart, then annual booster. Not usually recommended unless in or traveling in endemic area.

CATS
 
•RCP
(Rhinotracheitis/Calicivirus/Panleukopenia/Chlamydia) – Vaccine that covers viruses and bacteria responsible for upper respiratory and gastrointestinal infections. Start kittens at 6-8 weeks of age. Vaccinate every 21 days until last vaccine is given at 12 weeks. If a cat is 12 weeks or older and has not been previously vaccinated, then a minimum of two vaccines is required given 21 days apart. Although annual RCP vaccines are recommended, every other year or every third year vaccination schedules are acceptable. For completely indoor, single cat households, RCP vaccines are recommended every three years. For all others, RCP vaccines remain recommended annually.
 
•FeLV
(Feline Leukemia) – FeLV testing is recommended prior to vaccinating. Advised for outside cats. We also strongly recommend FeLV tests for all new kittens. Vaccines are started at 6-8 weeks of age and are given every 3-4 weeks until the kitten is 12 weeks of age or older. If older than 12 weeks and not previously vaccinated, a minimum of two vaccines are required given 21 days apart.
