Core Vaccines for Dogs and Cats in Santa Clarita, Valencia, and Newhall
Our veterinarians can administer vaccines to pets who are six weeks old and above. Many initial vaccinations happen to build their immune system when they are young. Our providers can recommend a specific booster schedule for immunizations, based on factors related to your pet’s health and local laws. If you are just moving to California or are planning to live in another state or country, we can help you find out what additional vaccines your new locality requires.
Core vaccines play a vital part in your pet’s health and are required based on how contagious and dangerous a disease is, and whether a dog or cat could transmit it to humans.
Canine core vaccines include:
- Canine parvovirus
- Canine distemper
- Canine hepatitis
Feline core vaccines include:
- Feline distemper or panleukopenia
- Feline calicivirus
Both cats and dogs must receive the rabies vaccine.
What Lifestyle Vaccines Does My Pet Need?
We recommend lifestyle shots for your pet based on their age, weight, health, and environment, such as whether they regularly go to pet boarding, or whether your cat is indoors only or goes outdoors too. When you bring your pet in, our team can ask questions in addition to our examination before discussing what lifestyle vaccines can benefit your pet. We can also adjust which lifestyle shots they receive if their situation changes.
Common lifestyle immunization for dogs include:
- Kennel cough
- Canine influenza
- Lyme disease
Lifestyle vaccinations for cats can protect them against feline leukemia virus (FeLV) and bacterial upper respiratory infections.
Wellness exams are great opportunities to discuss your pet’s immunization needs and check whether they are due for any of their shots.
