Pet Vaccinations We Provide
Whether you have a new puppy, an indoor/outdoor cat, or a senior dog, vaccinations are the best way to prevent disease and ensure that your pet stays healthy. At Nazareth Veterinary Center, we take into account your pet’s unique lifestyle factors, such as if you routinely board your cat or whether or not your dog may be exposed to ticks, when recommending vaccinations and vaccination schedules.
We offer both core and non-core vaccines, including but not limited to:
- Canine influenza (often required by dog boarding facilities)
- Lyme disease (typically transmitted through ticks)
- Leptospirosis (can affect both pets and humans)
- Parvovirus (also known as “parvo”)
- Feline distemper
- Feline herpesvirus
- Feline leukemia
- Canine “kennel cough” (adenovirus, type 2)
When Do Puppies Need Vaccines?
Puppies (and kittens) need a set of core vaccines to ensure that they stay healthy, even if they are not exposed to certain contagious bacteria. It’s important to schedule your puppy’s initial vaccinations when he or she is anywhere from six to eight weeks old. The same is true of kittens.
Additionally, puppies and kittens may need a booster shot at the one-year mark (depending on the type of vaccine), as well as routine boosters about every three years (again, depending on the type of vaccine).
