Vaccines for Cats
Cats require both core and non-core vaccines.
Core vaccines for cats, which should be administered to all cats regardless of their lifestyle, include:
- Feline panleukopenia (FPV)
- Feline herpesvirus 1 (FHV1)
- Feline calicivirus (FCV)
Non-core vaccines, such as feline leukemia virus (FeLV), are not mandatory for all cats but may be recommended depending on your pet’s health condition, lifestyle, and risk factors. Your vet will provide detailed guidance tailored to your cat’s individual needs.
Vaccines for Dogs
Like cats, dogs also require both core and non-core vaccines.
Core vaccines for dogs, which are essential regardless of their lifestyle and living conditions, include:
- Canine parvovirus
- Canine distemper virus
- Canine adenovirus
While non-core vaccines like Bordetella and Lyme disease vaccines are not obligatory for all dogs, they may be advisable based on your pet’s health, lifestyle, and exposure risks. For example, we often recommend the canine leptospirosis vaccine due to the fact that our region is home to numerous bodies of water.
At Care Animal Clinic, our veterinarians can offer comprehensive guidance tailored to your dog’s specific requirements. Together, we will design a personalized vaccination plan that perfectly aligns with your dog’s needs.
Pet wellness plans are proactive, preventive care programs designed to maintain the overall health of your pets while potentially detecting diseases early. These comprehensive plans prioritize routine check-ups, immunizations, and preventative treatments, all aimed at supporting the longevity and quality of your pet’s life.
The benefits of a pet wellness plan are manifold. By focusing on preventive care and regular monitoring, wellness plans can help identify potential issues before they turn into serious health problems. They are also instrumental in promoting a balanced, healthy lifestyle for your pets by stressing the importance of routine care and check-ups.
A typical pet wellness plan can include any of the following services:
- Comprehensive physical examinations
- Vaccination programs tailored to your pet’s lifestyle and risk factors
- Parasite prevention and control
- Dental check-ups and cleaning
- Nutrition and diet counseling
- Behavior consultations and training advice
- Laboratory testing to detect early signs of potential health issues
No matter your pet’s stage of life, routine preventive care is an invaluable tool for maintaining their health.
