Routine vaccinations are considered to be one of the first lines of defense against many potentially fatal diseases. Vaccines have revolutionized medicine and have saved millions of human and animal lives since their invention. Thanks to vaccines, some fatal diseases that used to be common are now rare. It is critical for pets to receive the core recommended injections to protect them against disease.

At Rea Road Animal Hospital, our team carefully researches the most effective protocol for vaccines and takes into consideration any risks of exposure in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Core vaccinations are recommended for all pets. These core vaccinations include:

  • Dogs: Distemper, Rabies, Parvovirus, and Hepatitis
  • Cats: Rhinotracheitis, Feline Distemper, Rabies, and Calicivirus

In addition, based on the pet’s lifestyle, risk of exposure, and current health conditions, our veterinarians may recommend these non-core vaccinations:

  • Dogs: Lyme, Bordetella, Canine Influenza, and Leptospirosis
  • Cats: Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) and Feline Leukemia (FeLV)

We also offer canine distemper/parvo titers in lieu of vaccines for dogs. It is important to note that while exposing the pet’s immune system to a safe and controlled dose of the particular threat, it does not actually make the animal sick. This allows them to be better prepared in the event of a disease outbreak, and will help to fight against it. Our team at Rea Road Animal Hospital takes extreme care and precaution when vaccinating pets under our care, and believes that a quick prick will prevent serious or even fatal diseases down the line.
