Why does my pet need vaccines?

Vaccines help prevent certain diseases, like distemper, and parvo in dogs and distemper and herpes in cats. When it comes to rabies, the only form of treatment is the preventative vaccination.

Do I need to vaccinate my puppy or kitten as they get older?

Puppies and kittens and older pets need to be vaccinated regularly. The initial vaccinations given to a puppy or kitten help them build antibodies against certain illnesses. As your pet ages, he or she will need booster shots to maintain his or her immunity against diseases.

What vaccinations does your veterinarian at Sylvania Vet offer?

Our veterinarian at Sylvania Vet offers the FVRCPC 4-way vaccine for cats. This vaccine protects against calicivirus, chlamydophilia, panleukopenia, and rhinotracheitis. We also offer feline leukemia and rabies vaccinations.

For dogs, our vet offers the DMHP vaccine, which protects against distemper, hepatitis, measles, and parainfluenza for puppies between six and none weeks old. We also offer the DHPPC vaccine which provides coverage for coronavirus, distemper, hepatitis, parainfluenza, and parvovirus, and we have rabies, leptospirosis, and Bordetella vaccines.

Can your veterinarian help me determine the best vaccinations and vaccination schedule for my pet?

Our veterinarian can help you determine the best vaccinations and vaccination schedule for your pet. In general, you should first bring your kitten into our office when he or she is six to eight weeks old for their initial vaccinations then twice more for boosters and additional vaccinations.

Puppies should first be brought to our office for initial vaccinations between the ages of six and nine weeks. After the initial visit, your puppy will need additional boosters and vaccinations until he or she is about a year old.
