    Just like people, our pets need vaccinations to protect them from harmful and sometimes deadly diseases. 

 Even if your pet does not leave your house or yard, they may be susceptible to diseases that may be carried in the air, in dust or on clothing. 

 

 

Cats: 

FVRR-CP- Feline Respiratory Diseases include several different infectious agents. They are all highly contagious and are widespread. Signs of these diseases include sneezing, fever, nasal discharge, coughing, conjunctivitis, mouth ulcers and general depression. These diseases include: Rhinotracheitis, Calici Virus and Chlamydia. Stray cats that may be outwardly healthy may be a "carrier" infecting your pet, even through a screen window. Protection from these diseases are included in one annual vaccination.
Feline Panleukopenia; also known as feline distemper, is a highly contagious and often fatal disease in young cats. It is easily transmitted form cat to cat. Symptoms include depression, loss of appetite, vomiting and diarrhea.

Leukemia- Feline Leukemia is considered to be the leading cause of death in cats. It is a cancer causing virus that suppresses the ability to fight other infections.Kittens can be born with the virus and adult cats can have the virus for years before showing any symptoms. There is no treatment once signs develop but if tested as a kitten, a vaccine is available to prevent this disease.

Dogs There are many fatal diseases of dogs. Fortunately we have the ability to prevent several of these with vaccinations.

DHLP-PV: Distemper is very widespread and nearly every dog will be exposed to this within the first year of life. It is spread through all body secretions and is highly contagious and most often fatal. Canine Hepatitis affects the dogs liver and is spread through the dogs urine. Leptospirosis is a bacterial infection that affects the dogs kidneys. It can reside as a low level infection for months or years, infecting other dogs while weakening your pet. ParvoVirus is the most serious disease found in dogs today.It is transmitted through an infected dogs feces. A dog that recovers form this disease is still a carrier for 1-3 months spreading the virus in its bowel movements. Signs include vomiting, fever, depression and diarrhea which will often contain large amounts of blood.

Bordetella (Kennel Cough)- Also known as tracheobronchitis, it is an upper respiratory infection with the major symptom being a persistent, dry hacking cough. It can last several weeks and is highly contagious.

Lyme- Lyme disease is a tick borne disease that can affect people and dogs. If left untreated, the disease can cause arthritis, kidney failure, heart damage and death.

 

Rabies is a fatal infection of the nervous system that attacks ALL warm blooded animals, including humans. Rabies is a public health hazard and a personal risk to all pet owners. Many states require vaccination against rabies, and most veterinarians recommend vaccination for all dogs and cats. Rabies can be transmitted through the bite of an infected animal. Even dogs and cats that are kept indoors can come in contact with a carrier in a basement, garage or attic. Because there is no cure for rabies, vaccination is your only pets protection.
