Rabies is a fatal virus that affects the central nervous system of almost all mammals, including humans. The virus is most common in dogs,cat, bats, and raccoons. It is spread by contact with saliva on an open wound of the skin. The virus causes behavior changes, seizures and death. Rabies vaccine is required by law.
Rabies vaccinations should be given at 12 or 16 weeks (according to state law), boostered in 1 year, then boostered every 1 or 3 years depending on the vaccine used, and the state law. The Pet Stop clinic offers a 1 year or 3 year approved rabies vaccine that must be administered anually.
5in 1 - DHPP
The 5 in 1 vaccination provides protection from Distemper, Hepatitis (Adenovirus type 2), Parainfluenza and Parvovirus. This vaccination is the most important vaccination and may start as early as 8 weeks in healthy dogs, boostered until 4 months old.
Canine distemper disease can infect any organ system, but frequently attacks the nervous system. 90% of dogs that become infected will die. The disease is difficult to survive, since young puppies are most frequently infected. Thus, vaccination is essential.
Coronavirus infection looks like and is similar to Parvo. It causes bloody diarrhea and vomiting. However, it is less severe than Parvo, and dogs can usually survive. It is important to prevent this infection. Although dogs (usually) live through the painful effects of the infection, it still causes suffering for the dogs. Additionally, Corona can be transmitted to cats causing a fatal disease. Puppies and older dogs are particularly at risk. The vaccine should be given starting at 8 weeks of age, boostered every 2-4 weeks until 16 weeks old, then annual booster.
Bordetella Bronchiseptica is a bacterial agent that causes the respiratory disease - kennel cough.The kennel cough disease can also be caused by many other viruses & bacteria. Specific types of infectious agents causing this disease are the viral agents Canine Adenovirus Type 1 and Type 2, and Canine Parainfluenza. These highly contagious airborne agents cause mild to severe inflammation of the trachea, bronchi, and lungs.
Kennel cough is characterized by a harsh, chronic cough, as well as possible nasal discharge and sneezing. It is usually considered to be a self-limiting disease, unless pneumonia develops from secondary bacterial complications. The dry, non-productive cough may last for weeks to months after the resolution of the clinical disease due to the damage done to the trachea. Most boarding facilities require this vaccine; and dogs that live in shelters, pounds or kennels should receive protection through vaccination.
Please note: This vaccine does not prevent a dog from acquiring kennel cough (the lay
term for Bordetella-type respiratory syndromes); however, it does help prevent a dog from developing pneumonia from a case of kennel cough.
