Pet Vaccines

Welcome to the Pet Vaccinations page at Fountain Veterinary Hospital. Protecting your beloved pet from preventable diseases is a top priority, and our experienced veterinarians are here to provide a comprehensive vaccination program tailored to your pet's needs. Through vaccinations, we help ensure your pet's health and well-being, keeping them safe from a range of potentially serious illnesses.

Importance of Vaccinations: Vaccinations play a vital role in safeguarding your pet's health by:

  • Preventing Disease: Vaccinations are designed to stimulate your pet's immune system, helping them develop protection against dangerous and contagious diseases.

  • Community Health: Vaccinated pets contribute to the overall well-being of the pet community by reducing the spread of diseases.

  • Cost-Effective: Preventing diseases through vaccinations is often more cost-effective than treating them after they've become sick.

Our Vaccination Approach:

At Fountain Veterinary Hospital, we follow a personalized approach to vaccinations, considering factors such as your pet's age, lifestyle, health history, and risk factors. Our vaccination program includes:

  • Core Vaccines: These are essential vaccinations that all pets should receive to protect against common and potentially fatal diseases.

  • Non-Core Vaccines: Depending on your pet's risk factors and exposure, we may recommend additional vaccinations to ensure their health.

Vaccination Schedule:

We adhere to vaccination schedules recommended by veterinary associations, ensuring the best balance between protection and your pet's health. Puppies and kittens typically receive a series of vaccinations to build strong immunity during their vulnerable stages.

Vaccinations for Dogs:

  • Distemper: Protects against a viral disease that affects a dog's respiratory, gastrointestinal, and nervous systems.
  • Parvovirus: Guards against a highly contagious virus that can cause severe gastrointestinal symptoms.
  • Rabies: Essential for both your pet's health and public safety.
  • Bordetella Vaccine:  Provides a strong defense against this highly contagious respiratory disease, allowing your dog to socialize safely and enjoy playdates without worry.
  • Rattlesnake Vaccine: Designed to minimize the severity of envenomation and reduce the chances of serious injury.
  • Lepto Vaccine: Leptospirosis is a potentially life-threatening bacterial infection that can affect dogs and even pose a risk to humans. Our Lepto vaccine offers reliable protection against this disease, preventing the spread of harmful leptospires.

Vaccinations for Cats:

  • Feline Distemper (Panleukopenia): Prevents a highly contagious and potentially deadly viral infection in cats.
  • Feline Herpesvirus and Calicivirus: Protects against upper respiratory infections in cats.
  • Feline Leukemia Vaccine:  provides comprehensive protection, reducing the risk of FeLV infection and its associated health complications.
  • Rabies: Important for cats' well-being and for public health reasons.
