Vaccinations may improve your pet’s longevity and quality of life. You can help prevent your pet from developing a serious illness and reduce the risk of spreading diseases to other animals by getting the recommended vaccinations.

Vaccination strategies for dogs and cats

Determining the best vaccination strategy for each pet is part of our service to clients at Blackhawk Veterinary Hospital.

  • Kittens and Puppies. Young pets need a series of vaccinations and boosters before age one. Kittens born to mothers infected with Feline leukemia virus (FeLV) will need the FeLV vaccine.
  • Adult Dogs. Shots required at regular intervals include canine hepatitis, Distemper, Leptospirosis, Parvovirus and Rabies. Optional vaccinations for Lyme disease, kennel cough will be determined based on your dog’s lifestyle.
  • Adult Cats. Shots needed at regular intervals include Calicivirus, Distemper, Feline herpesvirus and Rabies. Optional  FeLV will be determined based on your cat’s lifestyle.
