Canine Vaccinations

DHPP (Distemper / Hepatitis / Parvo/Parainfluenza) This vaccine is a series of three shots; given to puppies at 8, 12, and 16 weeks of age and then boosted once annually.

  • Distemper - This disease is highly contagious and potentially fatal. It can be spread by discharge from the nose and eyes of infected dogs. The distemper virus infects many organs including the nervous system which may be permanently damaged even if the dog recovers.
  • Hepatitis - This disease can be transmitted among dogs by contact with secretions such as saliva, infected urine or feces. It can cause liver failure, eye damage and respiratory problems.
  • Parvovirus - This disease is very contagious and potentially fatal disease that attacks the gastrointestinal tract and in some instances the heart muscles. This is most severe in young puppies and elderly dogs. It can be spread through infected feces and the highly resistant virus can remain in the environment for many months.
  • Parainfluenza - Canine Parainfluenza is actually a major factor that can cause kennel cough, which is an acute inflammation of the upper airways. The disease can progress to pneumonia in puppies or chronic bronchitis in older dogs.


Leptospirosis - This is a bacterial disease which attacks the kidneys and liver. This vaccine is given annually.


Canine Bordetella/"Kennel Cough" - "Kennel cough" is the common name for a respiratory-tract infection which is easily transmitted from dog to dog. Bordetella vaccine is recommended for animals two months or older to help prevent this disease. Day cares, groomers, pet training schools and Kennels will require this vaccination. We recommend boosting this vaccine every 6 months.

Lyme Vaccine - This vaccine can be given at 12 weeks of age or older. Initial administration is a series of two vaccines, and then boosted annually. Lyme disease is incurable and is widespread across America. It is also recommended to use a flea and tick preventative.


Feline Vaccinations

FVRCP or Dist-Rhino-C also known as Distemper (Panleukopenia/Chlamydophila/Rhinotracheitis/Calicivirus)- This vaccine is a combination vaccine that covers feline panleukopenia (distemper), feline chlamydophila, feline viral rhinotracheitis, and feline calcivirus. Initial administration is a series of three vaccinations, given to kittens at 8, 12, and 16 weeks of age and then boosted annually.

  • Feline Panleukopenia (Distemper) - Treatment of this disease is very difficult and even if recovered, a once-infected cat can spread the disease to other unvaccinated animals.
  • Feline Chlamydophila - This bacterial respiratory disease is extremely contagious, especially in young kittens.
  • Feline Rhinotracheitis & Feline Calicivirus - These viruses cause upper-respiratory tract infections and are easily transmitted from cat to cat.


Feline Leukemia - This vaccine is essential for outdoor cats and multi-cat households. In order to receive this vaccine, your cat first needs to have a FELV blood test to ensure he/she is negative for the feline leukemia virus. If your pet is negative, you may start the vaccine to prevent this disease. Initial administration is a series of two vaccines, and then boosted.

Ferrets Vaccinations

The American Ferret Association (AFA) recommends vaccinating ferrets with USDA licensed vaccine products labeled for use in ferrets

Ferret Distemper: Ferrets are highly susceptible to CDV. The disease is virtually 100% fatal in ferrets that contract the disease. Proper vaccination provides protection from infection. All ferrets need a series of Distemper vaccinations when they are very young .Young ferret receive Purevax Ferret Distemper vaccination and will require additional vaccinations at 12 and 16 week of age and then annually.

Ferret Rabies:   Ferrets should also receive a Rabies vaccination after 12 weeks of age. Make sure your ferret is properly vaccinated every year.
