Protecting Your Pet

Core and non-core vaccinations at our animal hospital in Charlotte help prevent dangerous diseases, like rabies, canine influenza, distemper, parvo, and bordetella.

Rabies is a fatal disease in dogs, cats, and humans, and the only way to prevent it is by keeping your pet’s rabies vaccination up-to-date.

Canine influenza is another dangerous disease. In puppies and older dogs, the disease can cause a severe respiratory infection that can lead to pneumonia. A vaccination for canine influenza from our veterinarian in Charlotte NC can lessen the symptoms of the illness if your pet gets exposed to the virus.

Both dogs and cats need distemper vaccinations. In cats, feline distemper causes anemia because the virus attacks the cat’s blood cells. It can also lead to increased viral and bacterial infections. In dogs, canine distemper attacks the central nervous system, the respiratory system, and the intestines. If caught early enough, the disease can be treated. However, it can leave a surviving dog with permanent brain damage.

I have used Dr Johnson ever since she opened this office and my pets love her to death. She is very caring and does not rush you and always answers your questions in layman's terms. She loves her work along with her associates.
