Vaccinating your pet is a simple procedure and is proven to save lives. Many diseases that were once fatal to dogs and cats are now under control due to modern vaccines. Vaccinating your pet is well worth the financial commitment. Bulverde Animal Hospital offers pet vaccinations to prevent against Kennel Cough, Feline Distemper, and more in Country Hills, Stone Oak, and San Antonio, TX.
We, at Bulverde Animal Hospital, recommend dogs to be vaccinated for:
- DHP: Distemper, Hepatitis, and Parvo
- Canine Flu
- Bordetella/Parainfluenza - Kennel Cough
- Optional vaccines are Rattlesnake and Lymes
Puppies should have at least 3 boosters of DHPP starting at 6 to 8 weeks of age, with the second and third boosters 3 to 4 weeks apart. Adult dogs should be vaccinated yearly.
As of November 1, 2017, we require all boarding dogs to be vaccinated for the canine flu. The initial vaccination requires two doses, given 2 to 4 weeks apart. When making boarding reservations, please make plans to do the initial flu vaccine 2 weeks prior to your boarding reservation. This way, we are able to do the final vaccination when you drop off for boarding. Thereafter, an annual booster is recommended for continued protection. It is important for your pet to have an exam prior to each vaccine.
We, at Bulverde Animal Hospital, recommend cats to be vaccinated for:
- FVRCP: Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Herpesvirus-1, Calicivirus, and Panleukopenia (commonly known as Feline Distemper)
- Feline Leukemia
Kittens should have at least 3 boosters of FVRCP and Leukemia starting at 6 to 8 weeks of age, with the second and third boosters 3 to 4 weeks apart. Adult cats should be vaccinated yearly.
