Vaccines for Dogs
DHPP Vaccine = DISTEMPER, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, PARVOVIRUS
Puppies must receive a series of DHPP vaccines beginning at about 8 weeks of age (no earlier than 7 weeks) and ending at 18-20 weeks of age. The vaccines should be given three to four weeks apart. The 18-20 week vaccine is the most important. We do not recognize any vaccines given prior to seven weeks of age. Dogs are re-vaccinated one year after the last vaccine in the series, and then every three years thereafter. Puppies should be restricted to their home environment until their vaccines are complete, in order to prevent coming into contact with serious diseases.
For adult dogs who have never been vaccinated or whose vaccine history is unknown, a series of two DHPP vaccines three to four weeks apart is required. The vaccine is given on the left front leg.
RABIES Vaccine is given no earlier than three months of age, followed by a one-year booster. Revaccination occurs every three years. The vaccine is given on the right front leg.
RESPIRATORY COMPLEX Vaccine is an intranasal vaccine that is given every six or twelve months to aid in the prevention of diseases associated with canine Parainfluenza, Bordetella Bronchiseptica, and Adenovirus Type 2 infections. This is commonly known as “kennel cough.” (The interval between vaccines depends upon the frequency of boarding, grooming, and/or interaction with other dogs.) Puppies who receive the vaccine only need boosters after six or twelve months. For some dogs, injectable vaccines may be given that only protect against Bordetella.
CANINE INFLUENZA Vaccine is first administered to puppies after they are six weeks old. All adult dogs who have never previously received the vaccine should get a series of two (the second 2-4 weeks after the initial dose) followed by a yearly booster. Canine Influenza only affects dogs. It is a newly emerging infectious disease caused by a flu virus, and it spreads the same way the human flu spreads: through direct contact, contaminated surfaces, and through the air. All dogs are susceptible due to the fact that the virus is so new.
Vaccines for Cats
FVRCP = Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, Panleukopenia
Kittens must receive a series of three FVRCP vaccines. Ideally vaccines should be given at 8, 12, and 16 weeks of age. The 16-week vaccine is the most important. We do not recognize vaccines given prior to seven weeks of age. If an adult cat has never been vaccinated, a series of two FVRCP vaccines three to four weeks apart is required. Cats are revaccinated in one year, and then every three years thereafter.
The FVRCP vaccine is always given in the right shoulder.
FELV Vaccine is the feline leukemia vaccine. It is given in a series of two vaccines at three to four week intervals, and revaccinated every year thereafter. It is very important that this vaccine is administered to all cats in their first year of life. We recommend a feline leukemia test prior to the first vaccine in order to ensure that the cat does not already have the virus. It is recommended that high-risk cats receive this vaccine on an annual basis.
The FELV vaccine is always given in the left hind leg.
RABIES Vaccine is given no earlier than 3 months of age, followed by a one-year booster. Revaccination occurs every three years. All outdoor cats should receive this vaccine.
The Rabies vaccine is always given in the right hind leg.
