Pet Wellness Care Begins with Disease-Preventing Vaccinations

One of the most effective ways of keeping your pet safe from contagious diseases is through following your pet’s recommended vaccine schedule. Through modern veterinary medicine and the creation of safe FDA-approved vaccinations, so many diseases that once thrived among our four-legged friends are no longer as common.

Cat pet vaccines Vaccinating is simply one of the best ways to ensure your pet isn’t exposed to a serious or life-threatening illness.

At Rutland Veterinary Clinic and Surgical Center, we focus on the risks and needs of your pet as an individual. While most pets benefit from core vaccines, we understand that there are other factors that should weigh in on which vaccines are most beneficial or necessary. These factors include lifestyle, age, and current health.

Core Vaccines for Dogs

  • Rabies
  • Distemper/Parvovirus
  • Canine hepatitis
  • Parvovirus

In many cases, depending on your dog’s risk of exposure, we also recommend vaccinating against Bordetella, Lyme disease, and Leptospirosis.

Core Vaccines for Cats

  • Rabies
  • Distemper
  • Calicivirus
  • Rhinotracheitis

Among non-core vaccines, we may recommend that your cat be inoculated against feline leukemia virus.

To ensure your pet is completely protected, call us for a wellness appointment. Many vaccines are also covered under our Preventive Care Plans for affordability and convenience.
