Q: What vaccines does my cat need?
A: Cats are given either a 1-year or a 3-year rabies shot and a distemper (1-HCP) vaccine. Distempter (also known as feline panleukopenia virus) is a highly contagious, life-threatening infectious disease in cats. It mostly affects kittens and unvaccinated cats, and it can be fatal if not appropriately diagnosed and treated. Panleukopenia is considered one of the deadliest cat diseases in the unvaccinated cat population.

Q: What is in the Feline 1-HCP vaccine?
A: This vaccine protects against feline rhinotracheitis, calici, and panleukopenia.

Q: So what are the DAPPv and Bordetella vaccines?
A: The DAPPv shot is a combination vaccine approved for protection against canine distemper virus, canine adenovirus type 1 (hepatitis), canine adenovirus type 2 (respiratory disease), canine parainfluenza virus and canine parvovirus. The Bordetella vaccine is commonly known as the kennel cough shot. It is highly recommended for dogs who go to doggie daycare, boarding kennels, shows, dog parks, and training classes.

Q: How often are rabies vaccinations given?
A: The first rabies shot is given to your pet at 4 months of age and lasts for 1 year. Your pet’s next rabies vaccination will be good for 3 years. You should get your pet vaccinated for rabies every 3 years thereafter. In order to get the 3-year rabies vaccine at our clinic, you must bring proof of a prior rabies vaccination that is within expiration or no more than 30 days past expiration.

Q: What is a microchip?
A: A microchip is a small, electronic chip that is about the same size as a grain of rice. It is implanted between your pet’s shoulder blades and is activated by a scanner that is passed over the area, and the radio waves put out by the scanner activate the chip. The chip transmits the unique identification number to the scanner, which displays the number on the screen. Collars can fall off, but microchips are permanent!
