Dogs that are in contact with other strange dogs such as those that are in play groups, obedience training, boarding at a kennel or visiting a grooming salon are more likely to catch an easily transmitted respiratory infection and the .  Vaccines are available for both and are required for boarding in our facility.

Feline Vaccination recommendations

Kitten Schedule

8 weeks                  , and

12 weeks                   and

Adults should be vaccinated again in a year with a , and

Cats that are able to be in contact with other strange cats are at greater risk of exposure to .  For these cats we would recommend testing for the Feline Leukemia disease and then vaccination of those that test negative for the disease.

Vaccinations that last for 3 years are also available for adult dogs and cats that meet certain criteria—please inquire if interested.

 

A highly contagious and potentially fatal viral disease, spread by discharge from the nose and eyes of infected dogs.  The distemper virus attacks many organs, including the nervous system, which may be permanently damaged, even if the dog recovers.
Caused by Canine Adenovirus Type I, this disease is transmitted among dogs by contact with secretions such as saliva, infected urine of feces.  It caused liver failure, eye damage and respiratory problems.  The severity of this disease can range from mild to fatal.
A very contagious and potentially fatal disease which attacks the gastrointestinal tract and, in some instances, the heart muscles.  The disease is most severe in young puppies and elderly dogs.  Spread through infected feces, the highly resistant virus can remain in the environment for many months.
Canine parainfluenza virus (CPIV) is a highly contagious respiratory virus and is one of the most common pathogens of infectious tracheobronchitis, also known as canine cough.1 Although the respiratory signs may resemble those of canine influenza, they are unrelated viruses and require different vaccines for protection.

A bacterial disease that attacks the kidneys and liver.  Wild animals can carry the Leptospira, therefore, dogs with a higher potential for exposure to contaminated water and wild animals and their urine are at a greater risk (e.g., living in rural areas, hunting dogs).  Leptospirosis is a zoonotic disease, meaning it can be passed from animals to humans.

This incurable viral disease affects the central nervous system of almost all mammals, including humans.  It is spread through contact with the saliva of infected animals (such as skunks, foxes, raccoons and bats) through bites or any break in the skin.  Vaccination will provide your pet with a much greater resistance to rabies if it is exposed to the disease.  For this reason, many municipalities absolutely require that all dogs and sometimes cats, receive rabies vaccinations on a regular basis.  Plus, you will definitely have to provide vaccination records is you want to travel with your dog across the United States or around the world.

A respiratory tract infection that is easily transmitted from one dog to another in situations such as play groups, obedience training, or boarding at a kennel.  Most training facilities require vaccination certification.  This disease is caused by various airborne bacteria and viruses, including Canine Parainfluenza virus, Canine Adenovirus Type II and Bordetella bronchiseptica.
First reported in Florida in 2004, dog flu is spreading across the United States.  It is easily transmitted by direct contact, cough or sneeze, or via contaminated surfaces.  Protection is available with a new vaccine—ask if it is appropriate for your dog.
Like the human common cold, these viruses cause upper respiratory tract infection.  They are easily transmitted from one cat to another.  Kittens are particularly affected, but these diseases can be dangerous in any unprotected cat, as effective treatment is limited.  Even if a cat recovers, it can remain a carrier for life, possibly infecting other cats.

Feline distemper is caused by a virus so resistant it can survive up to one year outside a cat’s body!  Infection rates in unprotected cats can run as high as 90% to 100%.  Treatment of the disease is very difficult and even if recovered, a once-infected cat can spread the disease to other unprotected animals.

The leading cause of death in cats in North America, Feline Leukemia Virus can result in a multitude of serious health problems for your cat—everything from cancerous conditions such as leukemia to a wide range of secondary infections caused by the destruction of the immune system.  After initial exposure to the virus, a cat may not show signs of its presence for months, if not years.
