Canines

Core Vaccines

An incurable and nearly always fatal viral disease of mammals, that is transmitted through saliva and targets the central nervous system. Because it is spread from animals to people, the public health implications have led to a legal requirement for all cats and dogs in nearly every state.

$15  - 1y vaccine for puppies or adults with no vaccine history or out of date vaccine.
$15  - Rabies 3y  vaccine for currently protected adult dogs.

  • Distemper virus (in the same class as measles) is highly infectious and spread by respiratory droplets. It targets the lungs, GI tract, and the brain in some cases.
  • Canine Adenovirus/Infectious Canine Hepatitis is transmitted through bodily secretions and causes respiratory symptoms followed by liver damage and/or ocular damage.
  • Canine Parvovirus is an extremely contagious and very serious virus that causes severe and sometimes fatal GI disease.  Spread by feces and very hardy - it is ubiquitous in the environment.  Puppies and unvaccinated dogs are extremely susceptible.
  • Parainfluenza is a respiratory virus transmitted via respiratory secretions.  It one of the causes of “kennel cough.”

$15   - 8 wk old puppies need boosters of this vaccine every 4 weeks until at least 16 weeks old.
$15   - Annual vaccine is recommended for young adults current on DAPP.
$20   - 3 yr DAPP for adults who have had regular vaccines for a number of years.

Lifestyle Vaccines

This bacterial infection affects the kidneys and/or liver and is transmitted through the urine of mammals. Common risk factors for lepto in dogs in the US include exposure to or drinking from rivers, lakes or streams; puddles of water on city sidewalks where rodents may have urinated; roaming on rural properties (because of exposure to potentially infected wildlife, farm animals, or water sources); exposure to wild animal species, even if in the backyard; and contact with rodents. Humans are also susceptible and suffer similar symptoms.

$15 - 12 wk puppies and non current adults need a series of 2 doses 4 weeks apart.
$15 - Annual vaccine for current adults

A highly contagious disease transmitted through respiratory secretions. It causes inflammation of large airways, causing a honking cough; in the young or immune compromised it can become pneumonia. Recommended for any dog that will come into close contact with other unknown dogs (e.g. Boarding, grooming, dog parks, doggy day care). While the vaccine cannot prevent dogs from contracting the disease, it reduces the severity of the illness.

$15 - Intranasal annual vaccine

This virus is transmitted similarly to the human flu virus (direct contact, respiratory secretions, or contaminated surfaces). Recommended for any dog that will come into close contact with other unknown dogs (e.g. Boarding, grooming, dog parks, doggy day care.)

$25 - puppies >12 wks and non current adults need a series of 2 doses 4 weeks apart.

$25- 1 yr vaccine for current adults.

Felines

Core Vaccines

This combination vaccine is considered “core” by the American Animal Hospital Association and is highly recommend for all cats:

  • FVR - Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis: an upper respiratory disease caused by feline herpesvirus type 1. This, very common cause of respiratory disease in kittens and young cats, can result in chronic, even life-long, infections that may intermittently recur.  It can also cause painful corneal (eye) erosions.  It easily spreads by respiratory droplets.
  • C - Calicivirus: another highly contagious viral infection that can cause ulcers on the eyes and in the mouth, upper respiratory symptoms, and even occasionally severe joint pain.  This virus is particularly resistant to disinfectants so can be persistent in the environment.
  • P - Panleukopenia is a highly contagious and severe infection of the gastrointestinal tract.  Similar to the parvovirus in dogs it is easily transmitted through feces and contact with infected animals or contaminated items.  If a cat is infected while pregnant it can cause neurologic abnormalities in her kittens.

$15 - kittens and non-current adults need a series every 4 weeks until >16 wks of age.  (@8 wks, 12 wks, 16 wks)

$25 - current adults 3 yr FVRCP
