Veterinary Vaccinations in Pittsburg
Protect Your Pet with Routine Vaccines
One of the easiest ways to keep your pet from getting sick is to keep up with their vaccination schedule. The ASPCA cites vaccines as one of the key ways you can keep your pet healthy throughout their life. At Pittsburg Veterinary Clinic, our team will recommend vaccines for your pets that are designed to protect their health and prevent the need for costly treatments or even premature death. Each pet is evaluated to understand their specific needs, lifestyle, and health concerns before we make a recommendation as to which vaccines will most benefit them.
While every dog is different - and different breeds have different needs - there are a few core vaccinations that we at Pittsburg Veterinary Clinic recommend for every dog.
These core vaccines include:
- Parvovirus - This highly contagious viral illness can affect the gastrointestinal system and the cardiovascular system; this disease can be deadly to puppies
- Canine hepatitis - This viral disease causes upper respiratory tract infections and can spread into the blood stream
- Distemper - This viral illness has no known cure and attacks the respiratory, urogenital, gastrointestinal, and nervous systems
- Rabies - An often-fatal viral infection, this illness affects the central nervous system and can be transmitted to humans
Like dogs, cats also have a handful of core vaccinations that can be hugely important to maintaining their good health over the years.
Core vaccines for felines include:
- Rabies - Cats are also susceptible to this viral disease
- Panleukopenia - As the leading cause of death in kittens, this virus is spread through direct contact with other infected animals
- Calicivirus - This virus is often responsible for upper respiratory infections and can also cause ulcers in the mouth
- Rhinotracheitis - Another virus responsible for upper respiratory infections, this virus can easily be spread from cat to cat
- Feline leukemia virus - Known as FeLV, this disease is the second leading cause of death in cats after trauma-related deaths
For both cats and dogs, the lists above are by no means complete. Depending on your pet’s specific needs, our veterinarians will recommend a vaccine schedule that is best suited to your pet.
