Adult Pet Vaccinations

AdultPetWellness

True to our belief that each animal is an individual and should be treated as such in every facet of care, we do not practice “protocol medicine” in a one size fits all scenario. Village Animal Clinic believes each pet’s vaccination schedule should be individually developed based on exposure risk, endemic risk and the health status of each patient.

Using the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) vaccine guidelines as a starting base, we will work with you to develop your pet’s preferred immunization schedule.

Thanks in part to advances in veterinary immunology and owner compliance with following vaccination recommendations; diseases that once were relatively common and often fatal to pets are now easily preventable.

Vaccinations that may be included in your ADULT pet’s immunization schedule:

Canine Patients:

  • Rabies: Offered in a 1-year or 3-year vaccine option. All dogs and cats in Franklin County are required to be vaccinated against rabies and are required to wear their rabies tag regardless of indoor or outdoor status. Most counties in Ohio have a rabies vaccination law. Please check with your county for more information.
  • Canine Distemper Combination: This combination vaccine protects against canine distemper, canine adenovirus-2 infection (hepatitis and respiratory disease), canine parvovirus infection, parainfluenza. and leptospirosis. The abbreviation for this vaccine is frequently written as “DA2PP-L”.
  • Canine Bordetella: Bordetella vaccine may be recommended for dogs whose lifestyle places them at greater risk of contracting the disease. This includes dogs that are boarded or attend doggy daycare or visit the groomer or dog parks on a regular basis.. Bordetella is commonly referred to as Kennel Cough.

Feline Patients:

  • Rabies: Offered in a 1-year or 3-year vaccine option. All dogs and cats in Franklin County are required to be vaccinated against rabies and are required to wear their rabies tag regardless of indoor or outdoor status. Most counties in Ohio have a rabies vaccination law. Please check with your county for more information.
  • Feline distemper Combo (RCPC): The Rhinotrachetis-Calici-panleukopenia-Chlamydia Psittaci vaccination is typically administered as a combination vaccine and is often referred to as the RCPC vaccine
  • Feline Leukemia: One of the most dangerous infectious diseases in cats today is caused by feline leukemia virus (FeLV). Cats at risk for developing feline leukemia include outdoor cats, cats living in multiple cat households and cats that interact frequently with other cats. For these high risk cats, vaccinating for feline leukemia may be beneficial.
