There are a lot of important things you can do to help your pet live a long, healthy life. You can groom them regularly, feed them a high-quality diet, and ensure that they get all the love and exercise they need. While all of these things are essential, though, there is one thing that is more important than all of them: Having your pet vaccinated.

At Pressly Animal Hospital, we provide pet vaccinations for Lake Park area dogs and cats, and we are here to help our clients establish (and stick to) effective vaccine schedules for their fur babies. Whether you have a brand-new puppy or kitten or an older pet who is overdue for vaccines or has an unknown vaccination history, let us help you get them on track.

Recommended Vaccinations for Dogs and Cats

There are certain core vaccines that are recommended for all pets as well as lifestyle vaccines that are recommended on a case-by-case basis. We recommend that all puppies and adult dogs receive core vaccines to protect them against canine distemper, adenovirus, parvovirus, leptospirosis, and coronavirus. We may also advise you to vaccinate your dog against canine influenza, parainfluenza, Bordetella, and/or Lyme disease.

All cats should be vaccinated against calicivirus, feline viral rhinotracheitis, and panleukopenia. Cats who venture outdoors should also receive the feline leukemia virus vaccination.

In North Carolina, all dogs and cats are required by law to be vaccinated against Rabies. We can administer this vaccine as early as 12 weeks of age and will administer boosters either annually or every three years.
