Preventative Care to Protect Your Pet’s Health
Up-to-date vaccinations play a key role in your pet’s health care. Thanks to advances in veterinary medicine, many diseases that once posed serious risks to dogs and cats can now be prevented through regular vaccinations.
At Sycamore Veterinary Hospital, we advocate annual vaccinations. We follow the vaccination protocols established by the American Veterinary Medical Association, the American Animal Hospital Association, and the American Association of Feline Practitioners.
Of course, we realize that not every pet requires the same vaccinations. Using these established guidelines, we create a personalized vaccination schedule for your pet based on their individual needs and unique lifestyle.
Vaccines for Dogs
Under Pennsylvania state law, all dogs must be vaccinated for rabies. At Sycamore Veterinary Hospital, we also recommend the other core vaccine (DA2PP), along with non-core vaccines such as leptospirosis and Lyme due to the high risk factors in Eastern Pennsylvania. If your dog has any contact with other animals (including just being in the same room, boarding, grooming, or classes), we highly recommend both the kennel cough and canine influenza vaccines.
In addition, we offer antibody titer testing for canine parvovirus and distemper. Dogs with satisfactory titer levels are believed to have good immunologic memory and do not need further vaccination.
Vaccines for Cats
Under Pennsylvania state law, all cats must be vaccinated for rabies. We also recommend the other core vaccine, FVRCP. For cats at a higher risk – those who go outdoors, have a feline sibling who goes outdoors, or have a sibling with leukemia – we highly recommend vaccinating for feline leukemia.
