Vaccinations are a critical part of preventative care for your pet. Vaccines protect our pets from many diseases including rabies, distemper and lyme disease. Each dog and cat is different, so our veterinarians develop custom vaccinations plans for each pet. Our veterinarians will determine which vaccinations your pet needs and how often they will be administered.



All dogs must be vaccinated for Rabies as required by Pennsylvania State law. We also vaccinate all dogs in our practice for distemper and parvo. Because central Pennsylvania has one of the highest rates of Lyme disease in the United States, we also vaccinate for Lyme disease. Finally, if your pet goes to the groomer, kennel or to obedience classes, we may recommend the kennel cough and canine flu vaccines for your dog.



All cats must also be vaccinated for Rabies as required by Pennsylvania State law.  All cats in our practice are also vaccinated for distemper and the upper respiratory disease viruses. Finally, cats which go outdoors are vaccinated against feline leukemia.
