* Canine Vaccines *
The canine vaccines include the following:
Distemper Combo (Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus) -
Canine distemper is a contagious and serious viral illness with no known cure. The disease affects dogs, and certain species of wildlife, such as raccoons, wolves, foxes, and skunks. The virus, which is spread through the air and by direct or indirect (i.e. utensils, bedding) contact with an infected animal, initially attacks a dog’s tonsils and lymph nodes and replicates itself there for about one week. It then attacks the respiratory, urogenital, gastrointestinal, and nervous systems.
Rabies- Rabies is a severe, and often fatal, viral polioencephalitis that specifically affects the gray matter of the dog's brain and its central nervous system (CNS). The primary way the rabies virus is transmitted to dogs in the United States is through a bite from a disease carrier: foxes, raccoons, skunks, and bats.
Additional vaccines available are:
Bordetella (Kennel Cough)- Canine Bordetella is a highly contagious upper respiratory condition that affects a high amount of dogs. Also known as kennel cough and more recently, canine infectious tracheobronchitis. It is usually caused by bacteria that is spread from dog to dog.
Leptospirosis - Leptospirosis is an infectious disease that can occur in humans and animals worldwide. High risk factors include close association with animals and the water and soil they may contaminate with infected urine.
Lymes - Lyme disease is caused by a spirochete. A spirochete is a type of bacterium. It is transmitted to dogs through the bite of a tick.
All of these vaccines are highly recommended to keep your pet safe and healthy. They protect your pets from highly contagious and fatal diseases.
