Your puppy should be vaccinated 3 to 4 times with a 5-way vaccine. The puppy should be vaccinated 6, 9, and 12 weeks of age. If the puppy is a high-risk breed, it may require a longer initial vaccination protocol against canine parvovirus. Rottweilers, Doberman pinschers, pit bulls, Labrador retrievers, German shepherd dogs, English springer spaniels, Alaskan sled dogs are considered to be more susceptible to canine parvovirus infection than are other breeds of dog. Your puppy should also be vaccinated for Rabies at 6 months of age. This should be a 1 year vaccine. This would also be a good time to spay or neuter your puppy.
There are 3 vaccines we carry for kittens. They are FVRCP, Feleuk and Rabies. Your cat should be vaccinated for all 3. The FVRCP is done at 6, 9 and 12 weeks of age. The Feleuk is done at 9, 12 and 16 weeks of age. The Rabies is done at 6 months of age. This should be a 1 year vaccine. This would also be a good time to spay or neuter your kitten.
Why should you vaccinate your cat for Feleuk:
CAUSES of Feleuk (FeLV)
Here is a recipe:
1 quart of Hydrogen Peroxide unopened
¼ cup baking soda
1 Tablespoon of liquid dish soap
Mix. Apply and leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse. Do not wash off.
Use ½ lemon juice ½ water in a spray bottle. Spray area. They do not like the citrus smell and this makes your house smell better.
If your pet has a urinary problem, please collect a urine sample close to appointment time. Please put in a solid container with a lid. To collect urine, use a pie pan for dogs. If your pet is a cat, do not let him use the litter box before leaving the house. If you can not collect urine, tell the receptionist at time of appointment. DO NOT WALK YOUR DOG BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT!
If your pet has an intestinal issue, please collect a fecal sample. This sample needs to be as fresh as possible. If snow on the ground, take him to an area that has the least amount or clear him a spot to go. Put sample in a sealed bag.
