Cat and Dog Vaccines Our Hospital Offers

Your pet is unlikely to need every dog or cat vaccine we carry, but we want to make sure their specific needs are covered. That’s why we offer a whole range of vaccines to ensure complete protection for every pet. Our most important pet vaccines include:

How Do I Know Which Vaccines My Pet Needs?

Your veterinarian at Four Paws Veterinary Clinic will sit down with you to talk about your pet’s vaccination schedule, and which core (and if needed, non-core) vaccines they will need. We will consider factors including age, size, breed, habitat/environment, and lifestyle. Our core vaccines, which include rabies, distemper-parvo, and FVRCP, are all essential because they protect against highly contagious and potentially deadly viruses. Non-core vaccines are recommended if we deem them necessary for your pet’s safety.

For example, if your dog frequents places where other dogs congregate, such as dog parks, dog daycare centers, or boarding kennels, then they need the Bordetella vaccine to protect against kennel cough. Kennel cough spreads quickly among dogs and while not deadly, it can cause unpleasant, cold-like symptoms for your canine. Likewise, if you have an adult cat that spends half their time outdoors, then we will likely recommend including the leukemia vaccine in their schedule.

We Recommend Microchipping, Too

A microchip is an essential safeguard against being permanently separated from your pet if they ever go missing. Placing a microchip is easy–similar to vaccinating your pet! All we have to do is insert the chip under the skin, between the shoulder blades. The procedure is quick and should cause no discomfort to your pet. We highly recommend microchipping your pet during their next wellness visit, or while they’re under anesthesia for their spay/neuter or dental cleaning.
