COMMON DOG DISEASES PREVENTABLE BY VACCINE

Canine Distemper: A widespread, often fatal disease. All dogs should be vaccinated against distemper, starting at 6-9 weeks of age.

Canine Adenovirus Type-1 and Type-2: Causes infectious hepatitis and respiratory infection, respectively. Hepatitis caused by the adenovirus Type-1 may cause severe kidney damage or death. Adenovirus Type-2 is an important factor in kennel cough.

Canine Parainfluenza: Another cause of kennel cough. Although parainfluenza is often a mild respiratory infection in otherwise healthy dogs, it can be sever in puppies or debilitated dogs.

Canine Parvovirus (infection): A disease of widespread distribution which may cause severe dehydrating diarrhea in dogs of varying ages. Parvovirus infection is especially dangerous for puppies.

Canine Bordetella (B. Bronchiseptica): May contribute to kennel cough. this bacterial infection can occur alone or in combination with distemper, adenovirus type-2 infection, parainfulenza, and other respiratory problems.

Rabies: One of the world's most publicized and feared diseases, it is almost always fatal. Rabies virus attacks the brain and central nervous system, and is transmitted to humans chiefly through the bite of an infected animal.


COMMON FELINE DISEASES PREVENTABLE BY VACCINE

Panleukopenia (Feline Distemper): A highly contagious, often fatal disease, especially dangerous to kittens. Symptoms include loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, high fever, and depression.

Rhinotracheitis: Like the common cold in people, but it can cause serious problems for kittens and older cats. It causes sneezing, fever, loss of appetite, inflammation around the eyes, and ulcers in the mouth.

Calici Virus Infection: Can cause sneezing, fever, loss of appetite, inflammation around the eyes and ulcers in the mouth. Healthy adult cats usually recover from it. Kittens and older cats are at greater risk of serious complications.

Pneumonitis: Caused by Chlamydia psittaci. Symptoms are similar to those of calici virus infection and rhinotracheitis.

Feline Leukemia (FeLV): Caused by the Feline Leukemia Virus. FeLV is one of the most common causes of illness and death in cats. It is a cancer-causing virus that can suppress the cat's ability to fight infections. Kittens can be born with the virus. Cats can have the virus for years before showing symptoms. We recommend that your cat be tested for FeLV prior to receiving an FeLV vaccination.

Rabies: One of the world's most publicized and feared diseases, it is almost always fatal. Rabies virus attacks the brain and central nervous system, and is transmitted to humans chiefly through the bite of an infected animal.
