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 and bats.

  • 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 and panleukopenia

Lifestyle Vaccines

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 and general exposure risks:

  • Bordetella (kennel cough) vaccine - protects dogs from catching the highly contagious kennel cough virus that can be spread among dogs living in close quarters

  • Leptospirosis (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 be removed. Whatever your pet needs, we can guide you towards making the best choices for their health.
