In addition, we use the safest, highest-quality vaccines on the market to reduce vaccine reaction risks.
If you don't remember when your pet had their last vaccinations, maybe it's time to schedule an appointment!
Harmful Diseases to Protect Your Pet Against
Rabies is a deadly viral disease that attacks the central nervous system. Both animals and people can be affected by this disease, which is spread by foxes, coyotes, raccoons, and skunks. Vaccinating pets for rabies is required under Florida state law.
Canine distemper is also life-threatening and can spread quickly in places where dogs are in close quarters for extended periods. It affects the respiratory, gastrointestinal, and nervous systems.
Lyme disease infection takes place when a tick carrying certain bacteria bites an animal, releasing the bacteria into the animal's bloodstream. Lyme disease symptoms include lameness, swollen joints, fever, and lethargy.
Leptospirosis is a bacterial disease that both pets and humans can get. Leptospira bacteria inhabit damp soil and standing bodies of water such as puddles, ponds, and lakes. Infection can cause fever, vomiting, lethargy, and increased thirst, and can be deadly if it isn't treated quickly.
Feline leukemia is a serious risk for indoor/outdoor cats, especially in neighborhoods frequented by feral strays. Symptoms include weight loss, poor coat condition, fever, diarrhea, and urinary tract and upper respiratory infections.
