Protecting pets from diseases like rabies and lyme disease, vaccinations are a critical part of your pet’s health. The rabies vaccine is required by law in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Other vaccines are recommended based on an animal’s individual lifestyle.
- Indoor cats should receive rabies and FVRCP (feline distemper vaccine).
- Outdoor cats should be given the above vaccines, in addition to the feline leukemia vaccine.
- Dogs should receive the rabies vaccine, DAPP (canine distemper, adenovirus for hepatitis, parainfluenza, parvovirus), and potentially bordatella (kennel cough vaccine), lyme, and leptospirosis depending on the dog’s lifestyle.
Puppies and kittens receive serial vaccines every 3-4 weeks typically starting at 8 weeks of age up to 16 weeks. Elderly pets or pets with underlying medical conditions may not be vaccinated.Request Appointment
