If you want peace of mind knowing your pet is as protected as possible against harmful diseases, then they should be vaccinated. At Skycrest Animal Clinic, our doctors are advocates for providing every pet with their very own vaccination plan, one that’s tailored to their specific needs and lifestyle. Rabies, distemper, parvo, and other life-threatening viruses can be prevented from spreading to your pet and to others.
We’d be happy to tell you more about our vaccines and help you decide which ones are most important for your pet.
Vaccinations Available to Your Pet
Our animal hospital in Long Grove carries all of the most important vaccines for dogs and cats, including the “core” rabies* and distemper vaccines that are recommended for every pet. We also offer risk-based “non-core” vaccines.
*We can offer a 3-year rabies vaccine and a 3-year distemper vaccine for dogs and cats. If you’re interested in these vaccines, let us know.
- DAPP (distemper, adenovirus, parainfluenza, and parvovirus)
- Bordetella (needed for boarding pets)
- Canine influenza
- FVRCP (feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, chlamydia and panleukopenia)
- Feline leukemia (highly recommended for cats that go outside)
Are There Any Side Effects from Vaccines?
Side effects from being vaccinated are usually rare in pets, but not unheard of. Young puppies and kittens being vaccinated for the first time might feel a little drowsy after their appointment. Some pets might be tender at the injection site for a day or two, which is normal. We do advise you to watch for swelling at the site or swelling around your pet’s face just in case. If you notice anything unusual, please let us know immediately.
