Vaccinations

Vaccinations are an important part of your pets’ complete health care, beginning when they’re only 6 to 8 weeks of age and continuing throughout their entire lives vaccines are an easy and inexpensive way to protect your pet from the most common but serious illnesses your pet can catch.

Vaccines help to stimulate the bodies’ defenses to develop immunity to certain diseases. Keeping pets vaccinated helps keep pets healthy in two ways;

    - It helps protect the individual pet vaccinated, and

   -  It helps to keep the overall incidence of disease down


Canine Vaccines

Vaccinations are started from 6 to 8 weeks of age. We recommend the following canine vaccines;

  DHLPP  which basically stands for;

  Distemper            Hepatitis   

   Leptospirosis       Parainfluenza         

   Parvo virus           RABIES

   KENNEL COUGH (for dogs that go to groomers, kennels or board)

Puppies are  generally given a series of vaccines beginning at 8 weeks of age and added to every 3 to 4 weeks. The first two series of vaccines will be DHPP only, followed by a DHLPP and RABIES, and finally  a last round of DHLPP.   This vaccination range may vary according to the age at which the puppy begins  their vaccine program.

Once the puppy vaccine series is complete they’re good for one year. When you bring your pet in for its’ annual physical & dental exam the following year they will receive boosters good for a three year period. Except for the Leptospirosis vaccine which needs to be boosted yearly.

Not all veterinarian clinics vaccinate for Leptospirosis, but the Washington State Veterinarian Association recommends this vaccine since Leptospirosis is currently on the increase in the state and can be transmitted to humans.


Feline Vaccine Protocol

We recommend the following cat vaccines;

 FVRCP  which stands for;

 Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis

 Calici

 Panleukopenia

 FeLV ( leukemia ) for outside cats or cats that come into contact with outside cats.

 RABIES

Kittens are given a series of vaccines beginning at about 8 weeks of age. The first two rounds of vaccine are FVRCP, followed by FVRCP and RABIES. If they are outdoor cats or exposed to outdoor cats an additional vaccine for FeLV will be given usually during their second or third visit.

Once the vaccine series is complete they’re good for one year. When they return the following year for their annual physical & dental check up they will receive boosters good for three years, except for FeLV which needs to be boosted annually.

Testimonial

“I was so happy with the service I received at SAC. I have been going to this clinic since 1965 when I was a child.  Dr.Dight was very thorough and accommodating with regards to my senior pets nutrition and pain issues.

Nice to have that extra care involved by a vet, as well  as the personal calls, letters and lab results.
