Preventative care

WHY CAT & DOG VACCINATIONS ARE ESSENTIAL

Your pet is a precious member of the family, and preventing illness in them is just as important (if not more!) as treating it. At Allendale Veterinary Hospital, vaccinations play an important role in our wellness care for your pet. Cat and dog vaccinations can prevent dangerous and even deadly diseases from affecting your beloved best friend. 

WHAT VACCINES DOES MY PET NEED?

Some vaccines, considered “core” vaccines, are highly recommended (and even mandated by law) for all pets due to the dangerous and contagious nature of the diseases they protect against.

Core vaccines for dogs and cats include:

  • Rabies – Required by law in the state of New York
  • DHPP (aka DAPP or DA2PP) – Distemper, hepatitis, adenovirus 2, parvovirus, and parainfluenza (dogs)
  • Feline Distemper – Feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia (cats)

LIFESTYLE VACCINES

 

Beyond the core vaccines, there are also lifestyle or noncore vaccines that we recommend on an individual basis for each pet, depending on their level of risk. We’ll assess their age, health, and lifestyle before making a recommendation.

Here are some lifestyle vaccines your pet may need:

  • Bordetella (dogs)
  • Lyme Disease (dogs)
  • Leptospirosis (dogs)
  • Canine Influenze (dogs)
  • Feline Leukemia (cats)

HOW OFTEN DOES MY PET NEED VACCINES?

Puppies and kittens will start a series of vaccines during their first year of life in order to boost their developing immune systems. After that, adults will receive annual or triennial boosters based on the type of vaccine. Your veterinarian will develop a custom vaccine plan that perfectly suits your pet’s needs and your abilities.

We follow the vaccination guidelines of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the American Animal Hospital Association, and the American Association of Feline Practitioners. In addition, our veterinarians stay informed about the latest research and developments, adjusting our treatments as needed to ensure the highest levels of safety and protection for your pet.
