Preventing Disease with Pet Vaccinations
Vaccinations are a core service we can provide here in Fishers for pets with standard wellness needs. Furthermore, pet vaccinations are just as effective as human vaccinations at preventing disease and promoting optimal health. At VetCheck Urgent Care Center, we carry all the essential core and lifestyle vaccines for dogs and cats.
Core Vaccines for Cats and Dogs
Certain diseases pose a higher safety risk for our pets than others. To combat these diseases, we need to immunize pets with core vaccines. The primary core vaccines we offer for dogs and cats include:
Rabies vaccine - protects pets from the deadly rabies virus, spread by foxes, raccoons
Distemper-parvo combo vaccine - protects dogs against multiple diseases including distemper, parvovirus, parainfluenza and adenovirus.
Feline distemper (FVRCP) - protects cats against multiple diseases, including feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus
In addition to our core vaccines, we also offer lifestyle vaccines. These depend on various lifestyle factors including age, size, breed, health history, travel frequency
kennelcough) vaccine - protects dogs from catching the highly contagious kennel cough virus that can be spread among dogs living in close quarters
lepto) - leptospirosis is a bacterial infection that dogs can catch from standing water, soil, or the urine of an infected animal
Leukemia vaccine - protects cats that may spend time outdoors and come into contact with infected cats
Lyme vaccine - protects dogs against Lyme disease, which can be transmitted through a tick bite
Preserving Your Pet's Immunity to Harmful Diseases
Vaccinations generally need to be given on a routine basis to maintain healthy immunity levels. We will be glad to help you figure out an effective vaccine schedule to keep your pet protected for as long as possible. As your pet ages, they might experience lifestyle changes that require new vaccines be added to their schedule, or others
