Vaccinations & Preventative Medicine

Vaccinations prevent many pet illnesses. Vaccinations can help avoid costly treatments for diseases that can be prevented. Vaccinations prevent diseases that can be passed between animals and also from animals to people. Diseases prevalent in wildlife, such as rabies, distemper, and RHDV can infect unvaccinated pets

Puppies and Kittens

Vaccines to prevent infectious diseases should be given every 3-4 weeks starting at 6 weeks of age. Puppy vaccines include DHPP (distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus, and parainfluenza) and DHLPP (all previous plus leptospirosis). Kitten vaccines include FVRCP (feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia) and possibly FeLV (feline leukemia virus) if they will be exposed to unknown status cats. Kittens should be tested for the Feline Leukemia virus before starting their vaccinations. Rabies vaccination is given after 12 weeks of age. We also recommend a fecal parasite examination for intestinal parasites on the initial visit. During the initial visit, we also will discuss heartworm and flea/tick prevention which should be given every 30 days and continued for life. Heartworms are transmitted by mosquitos and densely populate the Bryan/College Station area.

Dogs and Cats

Rabies vaccination should be administered as specified by Texas law to properly protect your pet and your family. We recommend boosting DHLPP in dogs and FVRCP and FeLV annually. We also recommend annually testing dogs for heartworm infestation and recommend that heartworm and flea/tick prevention be given every 30 days for the pet’s entire life.

Rabbits & Ferrets

Rabbits and Ferrets need vaccinations, too! Rabies, distemper and RHDV are very important in keeping your rabbits and ferrets healthy! Call to schedule your pet for their vaccinations today!
