Vaccinations Protect Your Pet from Harmful Disease

Do you ever wonder what your life would be like if you’d never been vaccinated as a child? Think of all the viruses you’ve encountered in your lifetime. Would you be as healthy as you are today? Vaccinations are essential to our health, and they’re just as essential to our pets’ health, too. At Jeffrey Animal Hospital in Farmington Hills, we recommend initiating pet vaccinations between 6 and 8 weeks of age. As with human children, puppies and kittens need boosters to build up their immunity to dangerous diseases. Leaving them unvaccinated could seriously jeopardize their well-being.

Pet Vaccines We Offer

We provide all the necessary pet vaccinations at our animal hospital in Farmington Hills to immunize pets against viral infection. Our vaccines, manufactured by Merial and Zoetis, are usually given per your pet’s lifestyle needs, and their likelihood of exposure to a certain disease. Below are the primary vaccines we offer to both dogs and cats:

Dogs:

  • DHPP (recommended)
  • Rabies (recommended)
  • 4-way Lepto (recommended)
  • Corona
  • Bordetella
  • Lyme
  • Canine influenza
    • Southern strain (present in the southern states)
    • Asian strain (present in the Chicago area)

Cats:

  • Distemper/rhinotracheitis/calici-panleukopenia/chlamydia (recommended)
  • Rabies (recommended)
  • FELV (recommended)

Bordetella is recommended to protect your dog from kennel cough, a highly contagious virus often picked up at groomers, daycares, kennels–anywhere your dog may be exposed to another dog. The Lyme vaccine protects dogs from the tick-borne Lyme disease, which can cause fever, loss of appetite, and lameness. Our FELV vaccine protects cats from the feline leukemia virus, which can be fatal.
