Pet Vaccinations in North Hollywood: Dog Sitting

Pet Vaccinations Are a Safeguard from Dangerous Diseases

Vaccinating your pet is one of the most important things you can do to protect their long-term health. Vaccines prevent your pet from contracting dangerous, potentially fatal diseases. Our North Hollywood animal hospital tailors each vaccination plan to suit your pet’s particular needs, and we offer the latest and safest pet vaccinations for both cats and dogs.

Core and Noncore Vaccinations

Not all pets need all vaccines, yet there are some we highly recommend for every pet. Others, the law requires pets to have, as is the case with canine rabies. Vaccines that we highly recommend for all pets are core vaccines, while those based on lifestyle are noncore. The vaccines we offer include:

Dogs

Core
  • Rabies – required by California law
  • DAPPL4 (distemper, adenovirus types 1 and 2, parainfluenza, parvovirus, and 4 strains of Leptospirosis)
  • Bordetella (kennel cough)
Noncore
  • Canine Influenza combo (covers both strains, H3N2 and H3N8) – highly recommended for puppies who are most vulnerable, but will only need to continue if your dog is frequently with other dogs
  • Coronavirus – highly recommended for puppies as well, but will only need to continue if your dog is frequently with other dogs and is around their fecal matter
  • Lyme – recommended for dogs who are frequently outdoors and susceptible to tick bites
  • Rattlesnake – recommended for dogs who are frequently outdoors and could encounter a rattlesnake

Cats

Core
  • Rabies – not required by law, but highly recommended
  • FVRCP (feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, panleukopenia)
  • Feline Intranasal Bordetella
Noncore
  • Feline Leukemia – highly recommended for all kittens who are most vulnerable, but will only need to continue during adulthood if your cat is frequently outdoors

Your Pet’s Vaccination Timeline

To make sure your pet’s vaccines remain effective, they’ll need regular boosters throughout their lives. Most of the vaccines listed above require yearly boosters; however, there are exceptions. For instance, our Bordetella vaccine for dogs and cats is intranasal and given every 6 months. Meanwhile, we give our canine and feline rabies vaccines one year after their first inoculation, and then every 3 years afterward.
