Vaccinations

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 when necessary 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.

Dogs

All dogs must be vaccinated for Rabies as required by Pennsylvania State law. We also vaccinate all dogs in our practice for distemper, lepto, parvo and bordetella. Because Pennsylvania has one of the highest rates of Lyme disease in the United States, we also vaccinate for Lyme disease. Finally, we recommend the Canine Influenza vaccine for dogs in a high risk group.

Cats

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.
