Protecting Our Community
with Cat and Dog Vaccinations
in Troy, MI

Cat and dog vaccinations play a key role in protecting our beloved pets from disease and can help to slow or even stop the spread of certain diseases. While our curious, carefree pets may not understand the risk of infection, as pet parents, we can do our part to keep them safe without forcing them to live in a bubble. Here in Troy, MI, our team understands the need for preventative care--care that helps to build up your pet’s immunity and keep them several steps ahead of illness throughout their life. Preventing illness is far more preferable to treating it, especially given the stress, discomfort, and expenses that can come with said treatment.

Help your pet strengthen their immunity and fight off harmful infections.
Call (248) 524-0500 to schedule their vaccinations!

But are Vaccines Actually Safe for Dogs and Cats?

We’re just as concerned about vaccine safety as you are, if not more so! Rest assured, we will work with you and discuss all your pet’s vaccine options first and create a vaccination schedule that aligns with their health, lifestyle, and daily surroundings. Furthermore, we spread out each booster series to give your pet time to absorb the vaccine and build their immunity. This significantly reduces any risk of a vaccine reaction. Vaccine titers are also an option. They allow us to assess your pet's antibody levels, and determine whether they provide sufficient disease immunity.

Throughout their life, your dog will need to be vaccinated for a variety of diseases, starting from when they’re a puppy at 6-8 weeks old. The most important vaccines for dogs include:

  • Rabies
  • Distemper
  • Parvovirus
  • Hepatitis
  • Parainfluenza
  • Leptospirosis
  • Bordetella

Distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus, and parainfluenza are given together in a single vaccine. We also provide risk-based vaccines, which are not required for everyone. When your pet sees us for their appointment, we can discuss any additional vaccines they might need.

Recommended Cat Vaccines

Even if they spend more time indoors, cats can still be vulnerable to infection. To keep them as fully protected as possible, we recommend they be vaccinated for:

  • Rabies/Purevax rabies
  • Feline leukemia (FeLV)

Feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia are given together in a combination vaccine (FVRCP). We can also provide the feline leukemia vaccine for indoor/outdoor cats.

How Often Should My Pet be Vaccinated?
