The Basics of Dog and Cat Vaccination If you own a dog or cat or are considering adopting one soon vaccination will be an essential part of your pet’s good health. Learn about the basics of pet vaccination from your veterinarian Ellicott City MD: Core Vaccines The core vaccines are considered essential for all pets. That’s because of the dangerous and/or contagious characteristics of the diseases they prevent core vaccines include those that protect against distemper parvovirus influenza hepatitis rabies and more. Non-Core Vaccines As the name implies non-core vaccines aren’t needed for every cat or dog. They might help some though based on factors like exposure risk environment and location etc. The Lyme disease vaccination for instance is recommended for pets living in areas where disease-carrying ticks are prevalent. Scheduling Most pets can receive vaccines as early as eight weeks of age or so. From there the initial vaccine regimen concludes at about 16 weeks. Most vaccinations then need booster shots to help them remain effective over the course of your pet’s life—these may occur on a yearly or multi-year basis.
