Keep Your Pet’s Vaccinations Current at Clear Creek Animal Hospital

Routine preventive care is the best foundation for a long and healthy life. Staying current on your cat or dog’s vaccinations is one of the main building blocks of your pet’s health. This is one of the reasons why the Clear Creek Animal Hospital veterinary team recommends regular wellness exams to keep track your pet’s vaccination requirements.

Common Vaccinations

    Feline Vaccines

  • Rabies

    It’s the law in North Carolina that cats and dogs are to be vaccinated against rabies. Pets need to get the rabies vaccine by the time they are four months old at least, and receive booster shots when they reach the age of one, and every one to three years afterwards depending on the type of vaccine used.
  • Feline Panleukopenia (Feline Distemper)

    A highly contagious, often fatal disease, especially dangerous to kittens. Symptoms include loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, high fever and depression.
  • Feline Viral Rhinotracheiti (FVR)

    Sneezing, fever, loss of appetite, runny eyes and nose are major symptoms of this sometimes fatal, viral respiratory disease. Kittens and older cats are at greater risk.
  • Feline Calicvirus (FCV)

    Another series feline respiratory infection, often occurring simultaneously with feline viral rhinotracheitis. Symptoms include fever, mouth and tongue ulcers and drooling.
  • Feline Leukemia Virus (FelV)

    A virus that interferes with the immune system and can suppress the cat’s ability to fight infections. It is spread through saliva, urine and blood.
  • Canine Vaccines

  • Distemper

    A highly contagious often fatal virus. The distemper virus generally spreads through saliva, urine and feces.
  • Hepatitis

    An infectious viral disease that can lead to sever liver damage or death. Spread through contact with infected urine, this disease is very serious in puppies and older dogs.
  • Parvovirus

    A highly contagious viral infection of the intestinal tract that is spread through contact with the feces of an infected dog. The disease strikes quickly and is especially dangerous for puppies.
  • Leptospirosis

    A bacterial disease that impairs kidney function and can lead to kidney failure. It is transmitted by contact with the urine and infected animals.
  • Parainfluenza

    A viral respiratory infection responsible for kennel cough. Usually transmitted by contact with the nasal secretions of an infected dog. Puppies and older dogs are at a greater risk for complications than are healthy adult dogs.
  • Bordetellosis

    A bacterial infection that is the primary cause of kennel cough. It can occur alone or in combination with other respiratory problems.
  • Lyme Disease

    A complex bacterial disease that causes arthritis. Deer ticks transmit this disease.
  • Parvo/Distemper/CAV-1

    Most veterinarians use a core combination vaccine to protect against parvovirus, distemper virus, and CAV1. Parvovirus is a deadly viral disease that is transmitted through contact with feces of an infected dog. Canine and feline distemper occurs through contact with urine and feces and is highly contagious. The combination vaccine can be administered as early as 6 weeks of age, followed by boosters every two to four weeks until at least sixteen weeks of age.
