Your pet depends on your protection in many ways. The common things they need are shelter, food,
water, exercise and love. However, diseases spread by other animals are an ever-present threat to the
health of your pet.
DHLPP: This vaccine is for canine distemper, parvovirus, hepatitis and leptospirosis. These diseases are
typically spread by dogs, foxes, coyotes, raccoons and rodents.
Rabies: This viral disease is fatal for dogs and cats. Rabies is almost always transmitted via the bite of a
rabid animal (often a skunk, raccoon, fox or bat).
Bordetella: This vaccine is for an upper respiratory infection that is highly contagious between dogs.
Vaccinate Your Pets
Vaccines are important for both inside and outside cats.
FVRCP: This vaccine protects against rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, chlamydia and panleukopenia which are transmitted by saliva, mucus and
other secretions of acutely ill cats.
Feline Leukemia: The feline leukemia virus can infect cats by saliva or nasal discharge, biting, or sharing food and water dishes.
Rabies: Rabies is mainly transmitted through the bite wounds of infected mammals and is highly contagious.
