Protecting Your Pet with Essential Vaccinations

Vaccines protect your pet from dangerous and highly contagious animal diseases. Through the use of responsible vaccinations, these serious diseases are controlled. Most diseases your pet will be vaccinated against are not contagious to humans, but rabies and Lyme disease are two of them. It’s important to vaccinate your pet even if they stay indoors because some diseases only take a very miniscule amount of exposure to be contracted. By staying up-to-date on your pet’s core vaccines and any additional lifestyle ones, you’ll keep your four-legged friend protected and healthy.

Standard Core Vaccines

Because of the risk they pose to cats and dogs, certain vaccines are considered core by the greater veterinarian community. Some lethal diseases like feline panleukopenia are only uncommon due to the use of vaccinations. Core vaccines include:

  • Both cats and dogs are vaccinated against rabies
  • Dogs are vaccinated against four different diseases, commonly called the distemper-parvo combo
  • Cats are vaccinated against three different diseases, including feline distemper and panleukopenia
