At VOCAL, we take your pet’s health seriously. That’s why our new clinic will offer low-cost pet vaccinations for your dog or cat. When it comes to your pet’s health, vaccines are actually the single most important preventive medicine that we can give to our pets.
Vaccinations for Dogs
One of the most common is the DHPP vaccination, which is a combo vaccine that protects your dog against the following four diseases: distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis parainfluenza and parvovirus. This is often called the distemper shot. In Florida, the leptospirosis vaccine is also recommended and frequently added to the DHPP. If your dog is around other dogs at kennels and grooming salons, the bordetella vaccine is also recommended. And of course, all dogs should have the rabies vaccine.
Vaccinations For Cats
We love cats just as much as we love dogs here at VOCAL. Just like the distemper shot for dogs, there is also a distemper shot for cats. The FVRCP vaccination protects your cat against feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus and panleukopenia. Of course, your cat should also have a rabies vaccination.
Some people think all of these vaccinations are not needed for their pets, but we recommend them as we know they are essential to your pet’s good health.
