Staying up to date on vaccinations is one of the easiest ways to ensure your dog stays healthy. Dogs are often outdoors for walks and playing, they are vulnerable to picking up a variety of diseases that can threaten their health, and even their lives. Our veterinary practice can provide a full range of Charlotte dog vaccinations, so your pet can avoid many common canine diseases.
Vaccines are small amounts of live or dead pathogen that triggers the immune system to create a defense against it. Then, if the animal is exposed to the disease again, its immune system recognizes it and has the ability to fight against it. Even dogs that are kept indoors most of the time can pick up germs from the park, the boarding kennel or the dog-grooming salon. A regular schedule of vaccinations will ensure your dog is protected from common canine diseases.
You should visit a veterinarian in Charlotte as soon as you get your new puppy. Most puppies are given core vaccines against certain diseases in the first few weeks. Booster vaccines must be provided to fully protect them in the early months of life. After the first year, your dog will then be given vaccinations on an annual basis. However, some vaccines can be given in 3-year increments. Your animal hospital in Charlotte will provide full information on recommended vaccinations when you bring your puppy in to receive wellness examinations.
At Compassionate Care Veterinary Hospital, we can provide a full range of dog vaccinations in Charlotte NC. “Core” vaccines are those that are recommended for all dogs. These include rabies, which is generally required by law, parvovirus, distemper and canine hepatitis vaccines. “Non-core” vaccines are those that may or may not be needed for your dog’s circumstances. These include Bordetella bronchiseptica, Borrelia burgdorferi, and Leptospira vaccines. In some cases, dog vaccinations in Charlotte will require other protections when disease outbreaks occur.
Many pet owners have questions about the safety of frequent vaccinations of their dog or cat.
