Vaccination Information

CATS AND DOGS

Rabies - this vaccine is required by Georgia law and, if given annually, protects your cat or dog against rabies.

CATS

1. Feline Leukemia (FELV) - The feline leukemia virus is a major cause of death in cats, and is transmitted primarily via saliva injected through puncture wounds obtained in cat fights . The FeLV vaccine protects the huge majority of cats, and is strongly recommended for cats who are exposed to open populations of cats.

2. Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis Calici, Chlamydia Psittaci, and Panleukopenia(FVRCCP) - Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis or Feline Herpes Virus is characterized by a variety of respiratory symptoms, sneezing, nasal and ocular discharges, and conjunctivitis, Calici Virus is a common viral disease that is characterized by upper respiratory symptoms, pneumonia or oral ulcerations and occasionally arthritis. Chlamydia Psittaci primarily causes conjunctivitis in cats which is the inflammation of the delicate membranes that cover the innner surface of the eyelids and the white part of the eye. Panleukopenia is a disease that causes the white blood cell count (WBC) to fall far below normal. White blood cells are so important in defending a cat against infections and disease. Additionally, this disease causes severe damage to the lining of the stomach and intestines. This virus is shed in all body secretions, particularly feces and can easily be transmitted to a susceptible cat via contaminated water, feed bowls, outdoor and/or litter box containing infected feces. This distemper vaccine provides a strong immunity to this disease.

DOGS

1. Distemper/Hepatitis/Leptospirosis/Para-Influenza, and Parvo Vaccine(DHLPP) vaccine - This 5-way vaccine protects against the following potentially fatal diseases:
  distemper (signs include upper respiratory problems, diarrhea, twitching)
  hepatitis (an infectious viral liver disease)
  leptospirosis (an infectious virus that can affect the kidney, liver, and other organs) (We use the DHLPP vaccine that covers for 4 strains of Leptospirosis which is contracted from contaminated water sources i.e. creeks, lakes, standing water, etc.) We use a vaccine that covers for 4 strains of Lepto not just one.
  para-influenza (a highly contagious upper respiratory infection).
  parvovirus (a highly contagious gastrointestinal virus that causes vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy).

2. Bordetella - also referred to as kennel cough; this is an upper respiratory infection that is very infectious (though not fatal). The vaccine is not 100% effective as it does not protect against all strains of bordetella.

HEARTWORMS

Cats and dogs can get heartworms from being bitten by infected mosquitoes. Yearly heartworm testing and monthly heartworm preventative is recommended for all dogs. Administering monthly heartworm preventative is also recommended for cats; however, yearly testing for heartworms in cats is not required. Failure to detect and destroy heartworms will eventually be fatal to an animal.

DEWORMING

Zoonosos or Zoonotic disease refers to disease spread from animal to human. Parasites can be zoonotic in that they can be spread to humans from infected pets. One of the most common parasites are roundworms (ascarids) and hookworms. These can be prevented with consistent deworming/fecal checks of both dogs and cats. Check out the Center for Disease Control website @ www.cdc.gov for more information on roundworms and hookworms.
