Vaccinating your pet will help protect them against many illnesses and diseases. Some of the diseases are zoonotic,meaning that they can be passed to humans. For this reason, it is extremely important to vaccinate regularly to keep your pet and your family safe.To ensure optimum health for your pet, we recommend the following vaccinations:
Rabies - Not only is this vaccination important to protect your pet from Rabies, but Tennessee State Law also mandates that every pet be vaccinated for Rabies each year. Our clinic currently uses a 3 year vaccine that allows a 3 year gap between next immunization, and only requires that you renew the tag yearly.
DAPP - The DAPP vaccination helps to protect your pet against four common viruses: Distemper, Parvovirus, Parainfluenza, and Hepatitis.
Leptospirosis- There is a significant increase in Leptospirosis infection in animals. Unfortunately, it is easy to transmit via bodily fluids, putting pet owners at risk. Our clinic currently vaccinates against 4 strains of the Leptospirosis virus.
Bordetella - Bordetella is commonly known as bronchitis or kennel cough. The vaccine is recommended every six months for optimum protection.
Coronavirus- Highly contagious intestinal disease .
We also recommend annual Heart Worm testing, and year round prevention to protect your dog for heart worm infection.
Rabies- Not only is this vaccination important to protect your pet from Rabies, but Tennessee State Law also mandates that every pet be vaccinated for Rabies each year. Our clinic currently uses a 3 year vaccine that allows a 3 years gap between the immunization, and only requires that you renew the tag yearly.
FVRCP - This vaccine protects your multiple viruses. FVR stands for Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, which is an upper respiratory infection that affects cats. C stands for Calicivirus, which is also similar to respiratory disease. P stands for Panleukopenia, commonly known as feline distemper.'
FeLV- Feline Leukemia Virus. This disease can impair the immune system tremendously, leaving the cat susceptible for a variety of illnesses and diseases.
FIV - Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. FIV is in the same class of viruses as HIV which affects humans.
FIP- Feline Infectious Peritonitis. This is a viral disease that is caused by the feline Coronavirus.
Puppies and kittens are to follow a separate vaccination protocol, which includes vaccinations set 2-3 weeks apart. While they are young, it is important to vaccinate in multiple “rounds”, or visits, to make their immunity stronger.
