Cat and Dog Vaccinations in Muncie, IN
With pet vaccinations, diseases such as rabies, parvo, and distemper will be less of a threat to your companion. While no vaccine is perfect, pets that are vaccinated regularly have minimal chances of being infected. At Care Animal Hospital, it is our goal to give your pet the best odds for a long, healthy life. Vaccines go a long way towards helping us achieve that goal.
Can Vaccines Be Risky for Pets?
Every vaccine has its risks. However, those risks are quite small, and we use some of the highest quality pet vaccinations available. Because we are an AAHA-accredited animal hospital, we follow the latest guidelines for safety, quality, and vaccination frequency. We take time to structure a vaccination routine that suits your pet’s lifestyle, and are careful not to over-vaccinate.
Every pet should have a flexible, custom vaccine plan designed to protect them from more immediate risks. We can always amend their plan if their lifestyle changes.
Dog Vaccinations in Muncie
Canines and felines have their own designated vaccines. Since dogs can be exposed to a wider variety of diseases, there are more vaccine options available for them. These include:
According to AAHA’s guidelines, rabies and distemper are core vaccines that every dog should have in their schedule. If necessary, we can also integrate the Leptospirosis and Bordetella vaccines into their routine, if they are more at risk of becoming infected with those diseases.
While many cats may not set foot beyond their front door, they can still be vulnerable to infection. Diseases can be carried into the house on clothing, hands, and other animals. Therefore, we offer the following vaccines for cats:
- Feline distemper (FVRCP combination vaccine)
- Feline leukemia (for kittens, and recommended regularly for indoor/outdoor cats)
Rabies and feline distemper are core vaccines for cats. All kittens must receive their leukemia vaccination, but it can be discontinued later for cats that spend the rest of their lives indoors.
