Pet Vaccinations Algonquin, IL

There are a number of diseases that can afflict cats and dogs, but most pets can be protected from the worst of them if they are vaccinated properly. Pet vaccines are health products that work to trigger protective immune responses and prepare pets to fight off possible future infections from any agents that cause such diseases.

We Have Your Pet Covered

Our hospitals offer a variety of core and lifestyle (noncore) vaccines to provide tailored care to every patient. Core vaccines generally include rabies and distemper combination vaccines, which offer protection against life-threatening rabies and distemper viruses. Lifestyle vaccines are given based on certain factors including risk of exposure, travel frequency, health history, size, and breed.

Currently, our vaccines for cats and dogs include:

Dog Vaccines:

  • Rabies vaccine (core)
  • Distemper combo (core)
  • Leptospirosis (core)
  • Bivalent canine influenza (CIV) vaccine (core)
  • Bordetella (core)
  • Lyme vaccine (non-core)

Cat Vaccines:

  • Rabies vaccine (core)
  • FVRCP – Feline distemper vaccine (core)
  • Leukemia – A 2-shot series for kittens, then given based on risk (non-core)

When To Start Vaccinations

During your pet’s first puppy or kitten wellness exams with us, we’ll be looking to start them on a proper vaccination schedule. These appointments typically take place when the pet is between 6 and 8 weeks old. We’ll make sure to tailor vaccine protocols for each pet’s lifestyle and needs.
