Vaccinations for dogs and cats

The most dangerous diseases for animals are carnivore plague, leptospirosis, infectious hepatitis (adenovirosis), parvovirus enteritis (olympic), parainfluenza, rabies. Among these diseases there are those that are very dangerous for humans: rabies, leptospirosis.

Terms of vaccination:

The first vaccination – in two – two and a half months (vaccination against viral hepatitis, plague, rabies).
Revaccination – after three to four weeks.
The second vaccination is six to eight months of age (usually after changing teeth).
The third vaccination is when the animal reaches a year and once a year.
The first revaccination (repeated administration of the vaccine) is needed to consolidate the body’s immune response, the annual lifelong revaccination provides “training” of immunity and maintenance of the required level of antibodies in the blood.

Deciding to visit a veterinary clinic where your pet will be vaccinated. Few owners unfortunately vaccinate their cats (compared to dog owners). Vaccinations are most often done to show, pedigree cats or animals, the owners of which have already encountered purring diseases. These animals often lead a home lifestyle, do not go out for walks and do not communicate with other cats. But viruses can get into your house with shoes or bags, because there are many stray, unvaccinated animals on the street. Disease pathogens enter the soil along with their secretions, which you bring home on your shoes.

The timing of vaccinations for cats that can be done using the services of a veterinary clinic:

The first vaccination is carried out in two – two and a half months (vaccination against calcivirosis, panleukopenia, infectious rhinotracheitis, chlamydia);
Revaccination is carried out after three to four weeks;
The second vaccination is carried out when the animals reach one year of age, after which they annually throughout their life.
Vaccinations against dermatophytes (for example, lichen and other fungi) are not included in the main complex of vaccinations, so many owners do not know about them. The vaccine is at the same time a means of treating an existing disease.

Piroplasmosis (a severe blood-parasitic disease, its pathogen is transmitted by a tick bite) is very common. Treatment of pets with special products, the use of sprays, drops and collars does not give a 100% guarantee.

The range of vaccines used in modern veterinary medicine is very large. We use vaccines from well-known, well-established manufacturers.

Do not forget to also give your pets effective anthelmintics on a quarterly basis, this is also of great importance when vaccinating.
