Here at Roseville Animal Hospital, we truly believe in the importance of preventative care to keeping your pets healthy. We believe that vaccines are necessary for good health. Vaccines are necessary to protect our pets from potentially harmful (and sometimes deadly) diseases. They are made to keep our pets healthy and disease-free.
Our goal is to keep your pets as healthy as possible. We believe that vaccinating your pets is one of the best ways to do this. We always recommend vaccinating your pets with the core vaccinations. Depending on their lifestyle, we may recommend other vaccinations as well.
When you bring your pets in for vaccinations, we give them an examination to make sure they are doing well and not having any problems. If you have any concerns about your pet’s health, we can discuss them at your visit.
- Rabies: This vaccine is given once every 3 years after the initial 1 year vaccine. Rabies is a fatal (both in humans and animals) viral disease. There is no cure and prevention by vaccination is the best solution to keep your pet and family safe.
- Lifestyle vaccination plan: Our doctors will individualize a vaccination plan for your dogs depending on their lifestyle and involved risks. The recommended vaccinations include Canine Distemper, Adenovirus, Leptospirosis, Parvovirus, Parainfluenza, Influenza, Bordetella (kennel cough), Lyme and Rattlesnake vaccination
- Rabies Vaccination: Rabies vaccines are given to cats annually. Rabies is a fatal, (both in humans and animals) viral disease. There is no cure and prevention by vaccination is the best solution to keep your pet and family safe.
- FVRCP Vaccination: (Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, Panleukopenia) This yearly vaccine maintains your cat’s antibody levels to protect them from these common viral diseases.
- Feline Leukemia Vaccination: While it is more common in outdoor cats, it is often seen in indoor cats due to unknown history or exposure to outdoor cats. Your cat is considered “at risk” for leukemia if he spends ANY time outdoors, supervised or not. Yearly boosters comprise the best prevention program. We recommend vaccinating indoor cats as well to maintain high enough antibody levels to protect them in case they get outside, have to stay in the hospital or kennel, or you decide to adopt another cat.
