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)
  • Rabies
  • 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).

Older pets can still benefit from vaccinations if they have been consistently vaccinated throughout their lives. However, our veterinarians might adjust the vaccination schedule based on your pet's age and health status.

What Vaccinations Does My Pet Need?

The specific vaccinations your pet needs will depend on several factors, including:

  • Species: Dogs and cats have different core vaccination requirements.
  • Age: Puppies and kittens need a series of vaccinations to develop proper immunity.
  • Lifestyle: Pets who spend time outdoors or come into contact with other animals may need additional vaccinations.
  • Local regulations: Rabies vaccination is mandatory by law in most areas.

During your pet's wellness exam, our veterinarian will discuss your pet's individual needs and recommend the appropriate vaccination protocol.

How often does my adult dog need booster vaccinations?

The frequency of booster vaccinations for adult dogs can vary depending on the specific vaccine and your dog's lifestyle. Our veterinarian will discuss a personalized vaccination schedule during your pet's exam.

At Nazareth Veterinary Center, we are committed to providing your pet with compassionate and comprehensive care. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
