Vaccines for Dogs

Vaccinations can protect against these possibly life threatening illnesses. Dogs need protection from these dangers & problems.
Distemper: A highly contagious viral disease that affects the respiratory & nervous systems. It is often fatal. Yearly Examinations: The exam can often detect problems with the heart, kidneys, liver & other vital organs (or even cancer) before they become life threatening.
Hepatitis (Adenovirus 1 & II): Type 1 causes hepatitis which may lead to severe kidney damage. External Parasites: Fleas, ticks, lice, & mosquitoes carry diseases and are just plain bothersome. Some animals have allergies and can break out from just a few bites.
Parainfluenza: A viral respiratory disease which is often partially responsible for "kennel cough" & can be severe in puppies. Internal Parasites: These tiny pests can be deadly to your dog. A microscopic exam of your pet's fresh stool is needed to detect them.
Parvovirus (CPV): A very contagious viral disease causing lack of appetite, diarrhea, vomiting, fever & even death within a few hours. Dental Disease: If your dog's teeth and gums aren't cared for, bacteria can spread to vital organs such as the heart, kidneys, liver, and can to shorten your pet's life.
Coronavirus (CCV): A highly contagious and often fatal disease in your dog causing vomiting and diarrhea. Spaying or Neutering: If you aren't a breeder, your dog should be altered.

Kennel Cough (Bordetella): A bacterial infection identified by a dry hacking cough and runny eyes. Heartworm Disease: Tiredness, cough, weight loss or fainting can mean that it is too late to stop this disease that is spread by mosquitoes. A monthly pill can prevent these worms from living in your dog's heart.
Rabies: Transmitted through saliva from biting, all warm-blooded animals are susceptible to this viral infection. Causing severe damage to the central nervous system this virus often results in paralysis and death. There is no cure for this infection and vaccination is essential and required by law.
