Dog Vaccinations We Offer and the Diseases They Prevent
Our clinic offers the best vaccines in the industry. Our mission is to give your dog the highest protection possible throughout its life. Our list of canine vaccines includes DHPP, coronavirus, bordetella, rabies, and rattlesnake.
DHPP – Canine Distemper Complex Vaccine
Once the initial doses are complete, the DHPP vaccine booster is given to adult dogs about every three years. It is given to puppies three times between six and 16 weeks and a booster after one year of age.
Its ingredients protect against the canine distemper virus, canine hepatitis, kennel cough, parainfluenza, parvovirus. The following are brief descriptions of each:
- Distemper disrupts respiratory functions, the neurological system, and the gastrointestinal tract. A dog will suffer a cough, high fever, vomiting, diarrhea, and runny nose and eyes. This disease transmits through the air or by contact with contaminated dishes, toys, or bedding.
- Hepatitis is extremely infectious. It causes fever, anorexia, death, or permanently damaged liver, kidneys, and eyes. It spreads through contaminated urine and feces.
- Parainfluenza is a contagious disease that causes respiratory illness. It is much different than canine influenza and requires its vaccine. A dog will suffer a kennel cough, fever, and nasal discharge. It transmits through the air, primarily where several dogs are gathered.
- Parvovirus is a deadly virus that attacks the gastrointestinal tract and causes lethargy, loss of appetite, severe vomiting, bloody diarrhea, fluid loss, and dehydration. Death may occur as soon as two days after onset. It spreads through contaminated surfaces of anything: bowls, collars, clothing, and hands. It can survive for an extended period without contact.
Canine Coronavirus Vaccine
The canine coronavirus (“CCoV”) vaccine often occurs when several dogs reside together in tight areas such as kennels and shelters. Therefore, not all dogs require this vaccine. Your veterinarian can determine if it is suitable for your dog.
It is critical to note that CCoV is not SARS-CoV-2 that causes COVID-19. It does not affect humans. CCoV spreads through unclean conditions or oral contact with contaminated feces. It causes serious gastrointestinal problems in dogs but does not affect respiratory functions.
Canine Bordetella Vaccine
The bordetella vaccine is an oral or injected shot given annually. Not all dogs require this vaccine. Your veterinarian or animal hospital can help determine if it is right for your dog. Bordetella bronchiseptica is a bacterial infection spread in situations where dogs are in close contact. Often called “Kennel Cough,” it affects a dog’s upper respiratory system and causes a distressing chronic dry cough.
The rabies vaccine is generally given to dogs over 16 weeks of age with a booster in one year, then every three years as an adult. The disease is incurable, deadly, and highly contagious. Therefore, it is a required animal vaccine in all U.S. states. The rabies virus thrives in an animal’s saliva, so it commonly spreads by a bite from an infected animal or the licking of an infected wound. This virus causes fever, staggering, difficulty swallowing, excessive drooling, paralysis, and seizures. It can also cause hypersensitivity to light and movement, causing the animal to act aggressively.
The rattlesnake vaccine is given to dogs at least 30 days before possible exposure, and it lasts about 60 days. Not all dogs require this vaccine. Your veterinarian can determine if it is suitable for your pet. Rattlesnake poisoning happens immediately when a dog is bitten. The venom is deadly. Symptoms include a puncture wound, restlessness, rapid and excessive panting, weak breathing, collapse, lethargy, diarrhea, muscle tremors, swelling, seizures, and death.
