Pet Vaccinations

Give Your Pet the Best Defense Against Preventable Diseases

Vaccinating your pet is the first step to strengthening your beloved companion’s immune system so that they have the means to defend themselves from harmful and preventable diseases. Our compassionate and friendly veterinary staff at Somerville Animal Hospital will walk you through the vaccination process to give you peace of mind. When you vaccinate your dog or cat, you’re taking proactive measures to safeguard their health and happiness.

Core Pet Vaccines

Core vaccines are recommended for all pets regardless of age or lifestyle risk. These essential vaccines protect your pet from various life-threatening diseases. It’s important to note that many of these vaccines are required for pets to enter dog parks, boarding facilities, training programs, and grooming facilities, and the rabies vaccine is mandated by law.

Core Vaccines for Cats:

  • Feline herpesvirus 1 (FHV1) - For cats under one year of age.

  • Feline calicivirus (FVC)

  • Feline panleukopenia virus (FPV)

  • Feline leukemia virus (FeLV)

  • Rabies virus

Core Vaccines for Dogs:

  • Canine distemper virus

  • Canine adenovirus-2 (hepatitis)

  • Canine parvovirus

  • Rabies virus

  • Para Influenza

We start pet vaccinations during puppy or kittenhood and often recommend vaccines at your pet’s first appointment. Our knowledgeable veterinary staff will create a vaccination schedule that caters to your pet’s needs while protecting them from preventable diseases.

Non-Core Pet Vaccinations

We recommend non-core vaccines to pets based on their lifestyle risk and potential exposure to certain diseases.

Non-Core Vaccines for Cats:

  • Bordetella bronchiseptica

  • Chlamydia

  • Feline leukemia virus (FeLV) - For cats older than one year.

Non-Core Vaccines for Dogs

  • Leptospira species

  • Borrelia burgdorferi (Lyme Disease)

  • Bordetella bronchiseptica

  • Canine influenza Virus H3N8 and H3N2

We aim to keep your pet protected in any environment and take the time to consider their risk for potential disease. After a thorough nose-to-tail examination of your pet, we will ask questions to learn about your pet’s lifestyle and evaluate their need for non-core vaccines.
