Vaccinations Tailored to Each Pet with Recommendations for Dog & Cat Vaccines

Pet Vaccinations

Vaccinating a pet against disease is critical to long-term health and longevity. Although some vaccines carry a minor risk to some patients, the veterinarians at Carriage Hills Animal Hospital weigh the benefits of vaccinating against any risk to your pet. Every patient receives a disease prevention plan that is tailored to his or her specific needs, for optimum safety and protection.

East Montgomery pet owners may prefer our Vaughn Road Veterinary Clinic, for the same extraordinary pet wellness care and a selection of essential services in an intimate setting.


Vaccine Guidelines for Dogs & Cats

The AAHA Dog & Cat Vaccine Guidelines clearly state that all pets are different and vaccine decisions should be made on an individual basis. Issues to consider include:

  • Age
  • Breed
  • Health status
  • Environment
  • Lifestyle

Health threats vary depending upon where and how you live. We work with you to tailor an immunization program to your pet’s needs, risks, and lifestyle factors.


Dog Vaccines

These vaccines are generally recommended for all dogs to protect against diseases that are serious, contagious, or potentially fatal:

  • Distemper
  • Hepatitis
  • Adenovirus
  • Parainfluenza
  • Parvovirus
  • Rabies
  • Bordetella/kennel cough

These vaccines are given during the initial puppy series, boostered at one year. As the dog matures, we may convert to every three years to provide proper immunity with the least amount of vaccinations.

These vaccines are reserved for dogs at specific risk for infection due to exposure situations such as boarding, dog parks, dog shows, and rural environments:

  • Lyme disease
  • Leptospirosis
  • Canine influenza

Cat Vaccines

These vaccines are generally recommended for all cats to protect against diseases that are serious, contagious, or potentially fatal:

  • Distemper
  • Feline upper respiratory diseases
  • Rabies
  • Feline leukemia virus
  • Bordetella

These vaccines are given during the initial kitten series, boostered at one year. As the cat matures, we may convert to every three years, to provide proper immunity with the least amount of vaccinations. For your cat’s safety, we use adjuvant-free Merial vaccines.
