Pet Vaccinations Veterinary Service in Monroe, MI

Vaccines are the most effective method for stopping the spread of disease and protecting your pet from infection.

Protecting Pets
with Cat and Dog Vaccinations

Vaccinating pets is just as important as vaccinating humans to prevent the spread of disease. Dogs and cats are especially prone to illness due to their innate curiosity and tendency to explore their surroundings using their nose and mouth. Our animal clinic in Monroe, MI is fully stocked with all the necessary vaccines to keep dogs and cats protected and healthy, from the core rabies and canine distemper vaccines to the lifestyle-based vaccines for kennel cough, feline leukemia, and other contagious illnesses.

Core Dog and Cat Vaccines

Core vaccines are considered essential for all pets, and are usually required by law in every state for reasons of public health and safety.

They include:

  • Rabies (for dogs and cats)
  • Canine distemper and parvo (dogs only)
  • FVRCP (cats only)
  • Leptospirosis (dogs only)
  • Bordetella/Kennel Cough (dogs only)

Non-Core Dog and Cat Vaccines

Non-core vaccines are not essential for every pet. Instead, these are recommended based on the degree of risk each pet faces in their daily life. Location, lifestyle, and the presence of other animals in the vicinity can determine whether your pet needs additional vaccines.

Non-core vaccines include:

  • Bordetella/Kennel cough (dogs only)
  • Canine influenza (dogs only)
  • Feline leukemia (cats only)
  • Lyme vaccines
