Protecting their Health with Pet Vaccinations
Your pet’s health depends a lot on vaccinations. Pet vaccinations play an important role in protecting young and vulnerable pets in Boynton Beach from common, yet dangerous diseases such as parvovirus, distemper, and rabies. At Colonial Animal Hospital and Colonial Gateway Veterinary Center, our veterinarians work with you to develop a balanced approach to vaccines that fully protects your pet and reduces the risk of overvaccination.
Vaccines we provide
We highly recommend that all cats and dogs receive their core vaccines on a timely basis. Yet, depending on their lifestyle, some pets may benefit from lifestyle or “noncore” vaccines for further protection. A list of our core and noncore vaccines includes:
- Rabies (cats and dogs)
- DHPP (canine distemper)
- FVRCP (feline distemper)
- Bordetella (“kennel cough,” dogs)
- Leptospirosis (dogs)
- Lyme (dogs)
- Canine influenza
- Feline leukemia
Most noncore vaccines are needed if your pet leads an outdoor lifestyle or frequently comes in contact with other cats and dogs. Noncore vaccines usually require annual boosters.
