Very pleased with the doctors and staff. Doctors were very caring and really good at following up with us regarding treatment and how our kitty Jack was doing. Thanks for taking good care of our baby.
The Safest Vaccines Available
When it comes to your pet’s health, it’s best to trust the experts, especially in regards to vaccinations. At The Village Vets, we use high-quality vaccines designed to fully protect your pet with the least risk of over-vaccination or adverse reactions. While there are vaccination clinics that offer very inexpensive vaccinations, be aware those vaccines are likely of lesser quality and could be less effective or even harmful to your pet. To ensure your pet gets the best protection for the least risk, trust The Village Vets!
Vaccinations for Dogs & Cats
Vaccinations are either considered core, recommended for all pets, or noncore, recommended only for pets at risk. We offer both kinds of vaccinations, and your veterinarian will develop a customized plan for your pet based on their age, breed, lifestyle, health condition, and more.
Puppies and kittens will start their vaccination series during their first year of life, and as adults, they’ll require routine boosters to maintain their immunity. Boosters are given either every 1 or 3 years, depending on the type of vaccine.
We offer the following vaccines for cats and dogs:
- DHPP (distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus, parainfluenza)
- Lyme Disease
- Canine Influenza
- FVRCP (feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, panleukopenia)
- Feline Leukemia
- Feline Immunodeficiency Virus
- Feline Infectious Peritonitis
- Pneumonitis (chlamydia)
Titer Testing & Avoiding Over-Vaccination
Titer testing is often touted as an alternative to vaccines, and while the test can be useful, it doesn’t quite give the whole picture of your pet’s immunity. Titer tests measure the level of antibodies your pet produces for a certain disease, but antibody counts alone do not give an accurate account of your pet’s immunity. They are simply inconclusive, and relying solely on titer tests could put your pet at serious risk of developing a life-threatening disease. To safeguard your pet’s health, we recommend that cat and dog vaccinations be administered according to AAHA and AAFP guidelines.
