- Rabies is a viral disease that affects the central nervous system and can be transmitted to humans. Vaccinating dogs against rabies is essential for public health and is often required by law.
- This highly contagious viral disease affects the respiratory, gastrointestinal, and nervous systems. It can be fatal, especially in puppies. Vaccination provides protection against this disease.
- Parvovirus is a highly contagious viral disease that primarily affects the gastrointestinal tract, leading to severe vomiting and diarrhea. Vaccination is crucial to prevent this life-threatening illness, especially in young dogs.
- This respiratory virus contributes to kennel cough, a contagious coughing syndrome. Vaccination helps reduce the severity and spread of this respiratory disease.
Bordetella (Kennel Cough)
- This bacterial infection is another cause of kennel cough. Vaccination against Bordetella, often given intranasally, can help reduce the incidence and severity of this highly contagious respiratory disease.
- Leptospirosis is a bacterial disease that can affect both dogs and humans. It is transmitted through contact with infected urine or contaminated water. Vaccination protects against several strains of Leptospira bacteria.
- Canine influenza, or dog flu, is a highly contagious respiratory disease caused by influenza viruses. There are vaccines available for different strains of canine influenza to reduce the severity of the disease. This vaccine is not recommended for every dog.
- This is a preventative vaccine that stimulates your dog's immune system to generate protective antibodies to rattlesnake venom. This vaccine does not eliminate the need to seek emergency veterinary care after a bite. It can, however, provide the gift of extra time to get your pet the necessary medical treatment.
