Getting your dog or cat vaccinated is one of the best things you can do to give them a long and healthy life. Apart from the rabies vaccination, which is required by law, your pet needs to be protected against other diseases as well. Which vaccines will be given and when is ultimately up to your veterinarian and will be tailored to your pets needs and lifestyle. However, here is a general guideline for the vaccination policy at Bentley Animal Hospital
Please keep in mind that these are merely guidelines and we will adjust them as necessary for your puppy and its environment.
These are the two vaccines all dogs should receive. Other vaccines, like Bordetella (Kennel Cough), Influenza, etc. are on hand and can be given at your request.
At Bentley Animal Hospital we use a special line of vaccines for our cat patients. These vaccines do not contain adjuvants, which are chemicals added to most vaccines to increase the immune response. Research indicates that these chemicals raise the risk of cats developing fibro sarcoma, a malignant tumor associated with injection sites. Therefore, we have chosen to reduce the risk to our feline patients by using nonadjuvanted vaccines, whenever available.
Rabies - required by law and needs to be given annually, because this cat vaccine is only approved for 1 year.
FVRCP - a combination vaccine against several upper respiratory viruses. Young cats should be vaccinated every year, but for older cats the frequency may be reduced to every 2 - 3 years.
These two vaccines we recommend for all cats, even the ones kept strictly indoors.
FeLV - all cats going outside should be protected against Feline Leukemia, but testing to ensure the cat does not already have leukemia is required.
FIV - we do offer this vaccine against Feline AIDS, but do not routinely give it.
