Core Vaccines for Dogs and Cats

Canine Vaccines

For our canine friends, core vaccines typically include protection against distemper, canine hepatitis, parvovirus, and rabies. These vaccines form the foundation of preventive care, offering immunity against severe and potentially life-threatening diseases.

Feline Vaccines

Cats, too, benefit from core vaccines such as those targeting feline herpesvirus, calicivirus, panleukopenia, and rabies. These vaccines are essential in safeguarding your feline companions against common and potentially fatal infections.

In Goose Creek, SC, responsible pet ownership involves prioritizing preventive healthcare, and vaccinations are a cornerstone of that commitment. At Goose Creek Veterinary Clinic, our dedicated veterinary team is here to support you in keeping your pets healthy and happy throughout their lives. By focusing on tailored vaccination plans, a gentle approach, and ongoing care, we strive to be your trusted partner in ensuring the well-being of your beloved companions.

Additional Vaccines Based on Lifestyle

Lifestyle-Specific Vaccines

In addition to core vaccines, certain pets may require additional vaccines based on their lifestyle and environment. Outdoor cats, for example, might benefit from vaccines targeting feline leukemia virus, while dogs that frequently interact with other animals may need protection against kennel cough.

Puppies and Kittens

Early vaccination is crucial for puppies and kittens. Our veterinarians follow a vaccination schedule that starts during the initial weeks of life, providing a strong foundation for a lifetime of good health. Properly timed vaccinations contribute to developing a robust immune system, helping your young pets grow into healthy adults.
