Vaccination Basics for Pet Owners Vaccination is your pet’s first line of defense against dangerous common and contagious diseases. It’s an essential part of good healthcare Below your Fort Collins CO veterinarian goes over the basics. Core Vaccines All pets require the core vaccines which protect against particularly contagious and/or dangerous diseases like parvovirus distemper parainfluenza feline leukemia rabies and others. Many of these vaccines are given together in a batch for convenience. Non-Core Vaccines Depending on your pet’s geographical location exposure risk pre- existing conditions and other factors non-core vaccines may also be necessary. Some examples include the Bordetella vaccine which protects against kennel cough and the Lyme disease vaccination. Talk to your veterinarian to find out what non-core vaccinations may benefit your pet. Vaccine Schedule Many vaccines can be given to pets when they’re quite young sometimes at only a few weeks of age. From there the vaccination regimen concludes around 16 weeks of age.
