We can’t talk about keeping your loved one well without bringing up pet vaccinations. Vaccines offer valuable protection against contagious viruses and diseases, helping pets live healthier, longer lives. At Eastside Animal Hospital, we’re happy to provide the vaccines your pet needs to live safely in their environment. We implement a staged vaccine protocol, in which pets don’t receive yearly vaccinations and are vaccinated according to their individual lifestyle and medical needs.
Core and Lifestyle Vaccines for Cats and Dogs
Keeping up with pet vaccinations and knowing what’s right for your four-legged family member can be tricky, but we’ll always work with you to select the best options. Core vaccines are required, while lifestyle vaccines are given based on factors such as age, breed, size, medical history, and risk of exposure. Below are lists of the core and lifestyle vaccines we offer for cats and dogs.
- Rabies (core)
- Feline distemper (core)
- Feline leukemia (lifestyle, recommended for outdoor cats)
- Rabies (core)
- Distemper-parainfluenza-parvo-leptospirosis (core)
- Bordetella (lifestyle)
- Lyme vaccine (lifestyle)
- Canine influenza vaccine (lifestyle)
Along with their core vaccines, all of our canine guests must also be vaccinated for Bordetella and canine influenza.
Canine influenza virus, or CIV, is a highly contagious virus that has 2 strains. Here at Eastside Animal Hospital, we carry the bivalent flu vaccine, which offers pets immunity against both strains of the virus. Due to the outbreak taking place in the American Southwest, we require that any pets scheduled for grooming and/or boarding appointments receive this flu vaccine. Canine flu spreads quickly and can even be fatal, so we want your pet protected. Feel free to call us any time if you have questions about canine flu or the bivalent vaccine we offer.
Not Sure What Your Pet Needs?
We can help! Your veterinarian will evaluate your pet’s medical history and discuss their lifestyle with you to create the most appropriate vaccine schedule. Pet vaccinations aid your pet’s immune system in recognizing and destroying intrusive viruses, so they’re crucial to your pet’s continued good health.
