Canine Vaccinations
 

As part of your dogís annual vaccination program, we will perform a thorough physical exam.

Canine Distemper Combo (DHLPPC)

Distemper- Is a highly contagious viral infection that is easily transmitted from one dog to another. Wild animals are also at risk of contracting and spreading this disease. There are different strains of this infection that can range from weak with minimal symptoms, to deadly and incurable.

Hepatitis- Is a highly contagious viral disease that affects the eyes, liver, and kidneys of the domestic dog and wild animals. It is spread through direct contact or contaminated surroundings. It is shed in the urine for up to 8 months allowing other dogs to become infected. Early detection is important or it can be fatal.

Leptospirosis- Affects the kidneys, liver, and eye sight. It is a bacterial infection spread via urine which contaminates food, water and soil. It is carried by farm or wild animals. This is a zoonotic infection and is contagious to humans!

Parvovirus- Is a very serious life threatening bacterial virus that is most common in puppies and older dogs. This virus is easily spread, and can live in the environment for 6 months or more.

Parainfluenza- An upper respiratory infection that causes coughing and/or nasal and eye discharge. It is similar to the Bordetella virus and spreads through aerosol or direct contact. It is treated with antibiotics and managed with cough suppressants.

Corona virus- Dogs of any age can be affected by this viral disease which is spread through contact with infected fecal material. They experience mild gastroenteritis symptoms, severe watery diarrhea, and dehydration. IV fluids must be administered.

 

Canine Bordetella Vaccination:
Bordetella-  (Kennel Cough) is an easily transmitted upper respiratory virus which is transmitted by aerosol or direct dog-dog contact. It often occurs after visiting dog parks, grooming or boarding facilities. A deep dry cough and gagging are common symptoms. Early detection and treatment is important. Vaccinations are recommended twice yearly for show dogs or dogs that come in close contact with other dogs on a routine basis.
 

Rabies Vaccination:
Rabies- Rabies is considered a public health hazard and there is no cure!
For your protection, it is required by law to have your dogs and cats vaccinated for rabies. This fatal viral zoonotic disease is spread by bats, skunks, raccoons, foxes, coyotes, dogs, cats, cattle, and horses. It is contracted through the saliva (bite wounds of infected animals). From exposure, it may take 1 to 3 months for death to occur. During this time they are contagious and spread this disease to other animals.

 

Lymes Vaccination:
Lyme Disease-  Lyme disease is a tick borne bacterial disease transmitted via the (deer tick, american dog tick, black legged tick, lone star tick, & pacific coast tick) that affects your pets and yourself as well. It can cause arthritis, kidney damage, and even death. Other symptoms include: loss of appetite, fever, shifting lameness from one leg to another, and/or fatigue, swelling of limbs or joints, vomiting, depression, lethargy or reluctance to move. If not detected at an early stage it can cause organ and/or neurological issues.

Since its discovery in 1975, Lyme disease has spread rapidly throughout the United States. Today, canine Lyme disease has been reported in every state, so prevention is the key! The best preventative methods are to give a yearly Lyme vaccine to your dog and to use a topical medication. At CVS we use Advantix for dogs. It is applied topically between the animalís shoulder blades once a month. This product repels ticks, mosquitoes and fleas. CVS uses the snap test to detect heartworm, lymes and two other tick- borne diseases. We have detected lymes disease in many unvaccinated dogs. However, when caught early enough, treatment is available.
