Vaccinations are one of the most important tools the doctors at Mercy Animal Hospital have to protect your pet against disease. We recommend the first round of vaccinations between six (6) and eight (8) weeks of age.

Canine Vaccines

Our doctors have your new puppy’s health at the forefront of their minds when recommending a vaccine protocol to prevent disease. Puppies between the ages of six (6) and eight (8) weeks should all be vaccinated against certain diseases. The vaccine regimen at Mercy Animal Hospital is designed to protect young puppies from diseases including Canine Distemper virus, Adenovirus, Parainfluenza virus, Parovirus, and 4 strains of Leptospirosis. Rabies vaccination is required for all dogs at three months of age.

Our doctors also require our boarding dogs to vaccinate against Canine Infectious Respiratory Diseases (C.I.R.D.) including kennel cough and canine influenza virus.

Feline Vaccines

Kitten vaccinations also begin between six (6) and eight (8) weeks of age. The vaccine protocol required by our doctors includes panleukopenia (feline distemper), feline calici virus, feline herpes virus type I (rhinotracheitis) and rabies.

Your new puppy or kitten deserves the best protection against these potentially life-threatening diseases. Please call one of our caring staff members at Mercy Animal Hospital to insure your pet is properly vaccinated today!
