Year-Round Vaccinations for Pets

Pets need regular vaccinations, just like people do. Pet vaccines may include booster shots, which help your pet stay safe and avoid deadly diseases. Following a vaccination schedule is an excellent way to stay on top of things. At Sea Paws Veterinary Services, Dr. Marcum provides at-home veterinary care and other pet care services in Kemah, TX. If you are unsure what types of vaccinations your furry friend needs or it has been a while since your pet has visited a veterinarian, It is time to book an appointment.

Core Pet Vaccines

Every pet benefits from core pet vaccines. The rabies vaccine is one of the most important core vaccines for dogs and cats. The first dose can be administered to a puppy or kitten as early as just a few months old. Annual boosters are required because rabies is always fatal and there is no treatment.

Dog core vaccines can save your pet's life. Distemper vaccines are given in three doses between the ages of six weeks and 16 weeks. Puppies will need a booster one year later, and older dogs should get boosters every few years. Other core vaccines include canine hepatitis, parvovirus, distemper, and kennel cough. Core vaccines for cats include those for feline distemper, feline herpesvirus, and calicivirus. These are also fatal conditions.

Non-Core Vaccines

Non-core vaccines are not necessary for every pet. They are based on your pet's lifestyle and special needs. Your veterinarian will recommend these options based on your pet's daily routine. Non-core vaccines for dogs include shots for parainfluenza, leptospirosis, canine influenza, and Lyme disease. Non-core vaccines for cats include those for the feline leukemia virus and bordetella.
