Vaccinations for Your Pet
There are several types of vaccinations that specific pets, including larger animals, need to stay healthy and free from disease. At Hooves & Paws Pet Hospital in Aubrey, TX, we provide all of the vaccinations your pet needs. We offer superior pet and large animal healthcare. The following are several types of vaccinations that are essential for different types of animals that we treat daily.
Vaccinations for Dogs from a Veterinarian
There are several core vaccines as well as non-core vaccines for dogs. The following are the essential vaccines you will want to make sure your dog has received. These include vaccinations for rabies, distemper, parvovirus, and adenovirus type 1 and 2. These are considered core or essential vaccines.
Parainfluenza, Bordetella, Lyme disease, leptospirosis, and canine influenza are non-core vaccines that a dog may receive. Whether a dog needs the non-core vaccines would be dependent on the animal's lifestyle and overall health conditions. Dogs also need heartworm prevention medication. Most vaccinations should start for dogs when they are between 6 and 16 weeks old.
Vaccinations for Cats from a Veterinarian
Many of the vaccines needed for cats are similar to those for dogs. Rabies, feline distemper, feline herpesvirus, and calicivirus are considered the core cat vaccines.
Feline leukemia and Bordetella are two of the non-core vaccines for cats. Most vaccinations will start when a cat is 6 to 8 weeks old. It's important to note that even indoor cats are susceptible to airborne germs that come in through doors and windows.
Vaccinations for Horses from a Veterinarian
In the spring a horse will need Eastern and Western equine encephalomyelitis. These are referred to as EEE and WEE. Other vaccines that a horse needs include West Nile virus, rabies, and tetanus vaccines.
Sometimes herpesvirus, influenza, Potomac Horse Fever, botulism, and strangles vaccines are given as well in the spring. There are also diseases related to various insects that an owner may want to vaccinate for.
