Vaccine Recommendations at Bay View Veterinary Clinic

 

Vaccinations help keep your pets healthy. They are designed to protect our dogs and cats from infectious diseases. At Bay View Veterinary Clinic, we recommend vaccinations for your pet depending on age, lifestyle and risk of exposure on an individual basis. Some vaccines are administered annually, while other vaccines are recommended every six months or every three years depending upon the vaccine type.

 

Canine Vaccines

 

Dog (Canine) Distemper--Distemper/Adenovirus/Parainfluenza/Parvovirus

 

 

Canine distemper is a highly contagious viral disease of dogs. It can be fatal. Canine distemper is usually transmitted through contact with respiratory secretions. But contact with fecal material and the urine of infected dogs or things they have contaminated can also cause infection.

 

Rabies

 

Warm-blooded animals can harbor the virus. The most common species in our area to be infected are coyotes, foxes, skunks, raccoons and bats. Unvaccinated domestic pets are also susceptible. The rabies virus is usually introduced by saliva during biting; but it can also enter the body through mucous membranes. The virus multiplies in the nervous system, and symptoms usually develop within 10 days.

 

Leptospirosis-Lepto

 

Leptospirosis is a zoonotic disease- a disease that affects both animals and people. It is spread by bacteria in the urine of infected rodents, wildlife, and pets. The leptospira organisms enter the body through mucous membranes or through a small cut or abrasion of the skin. People and animals can become infected from direct exposure to infected urine, but also through contaminated environment, such as water or damp soil. Leptospirosis is on the rise due to the increased exposure to wildlife and their surroundings such as raccoons, skunks, opossums, coyotes or deer.

 

Lyme

 

Lyme disease is caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi and is transmitted by the deer tick (often referred to as the black-legged tick). Signs of Lyme disease in dogs are difficult to detect, and warning signs may not appear until several months after infection. Signs may come and go and can mimic other conditions. Cases can vary from mild to severe. In severe cases, Lyme disease can cause kidney failure.

 

Bordatella-Kennel Cough

 

Kennel cough is a bacteria that spreads through the air and infects dogs who are in proximity with other dogs and sounds similar to a whooping cough. It's a dry, hacking cough where your dog seems to constantly be trying to clear his throat. The cough can last up to a month. You will need to see a vet and administer antibiotics for your dog until the cough clears up. In the meantime, you will have to quarantine him from other dogs so that he does not spread the infection.

 

Feline Vaccines

 

FVRCP-Distemper

 

Feline Distemper is a highly contagious viral disease of cats, kittens, raccoons, and mink. The virus tends to invade cells which are rapidly growing such as those of the digestive system, bone marrow (which makes blood cells), lymph tissue and the nervous system.

 

 

Feline leukemia

 

Is a virus that affects cats. The virus is transmitted between infected cats with the transfer of saliva or nasal secretions. Simple expose through a screen door is enough to transfer the virus. The feline leukemia disease remains an incurable viral disease that threatens the lives of thousands of cats each year.

 

Rabies

 

Warm-blooded animals can harbor the virus. The most common species in our area to be infected are coyotes, foxes, skunks, raccoons and bats. Unvaccinated domestic pets are also susceptible. The rabies virus is usually introduced by saliva during biting; but it can also enter the body through mucous membranes. The virus multiplies in the nervous system, and symptoms usually develop within 10 days.
