Routine Cat and Dog Vaccinations in Granger, IN

Cat and dog vaccinations play an essential role in your pet’s overall health. They protect from all too common and potentially fatal diseases. Both dogs and cats have special needs when it comes to vaccinations, but core vaccines are recommended to all regardless of lifestyle. Visit Kryder & Harr Veterinary Clinic in Granger for your pet’s customized vaccine plan today.

Core Cat and Dog Vaccinations

Certain viruses and bacterium are considered enough of an overall threat to pet populations to be considered core. Therefore, all pets are recommended core cat and dog vaccinations. Many of these diseases are still prevalent in wildlife and stray animal populations. While you might think an indoor pet is at less risk than an outdoor one, some of these diseases are airborne or could be brought into your home by a visitor or even you. Rabies, in fact, is such a considerable threat that it is core but is also required by law.

Rabies and DHLPP, which covers a range of diseases such as distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvovirus, and parainfluenza.

Rabies, DRC, which protects against distemper, rhinotracheitis, and calicivirus, and FelVV (feline leukemia).
