August is National Immunization Awareness Month
Date:8/21/2013

Malverne, NY (PRWEB) August 21, 2013

August is National Immunization Awareness Month, and Assisi Veterinary Hospital reminds pet owners to get their pets vaccinated this month.

It is very important to vaccinate pets against certain common diseases. Generally, pet vaccines are divided into two categories, Core and Non-Core Vaccines. Two core vaccines for dogs are Rabies and Distemper Combination. Rabies is a virus spread by saliva and bites. The shot is required by law to protect people and animals; generally given every three years. The Distemper Combination is a vaccine that protects against contagious viruses including Distemper, Adenovirus and Parvovirus. Puppies receive several DAP vaccines initially and then should be given one every three years.

The Non-Core vaccines for dogs are:

-Bordetella: causes kennel cough which is contagious bacteria that can produce a severe cold and cough. Dogs that have exposure to other dogs need this vaccine every year.
-Canine Influenza: is a new contagious virus with symptoms similar to kennel cough such as lack of energy, fever, runny nose, cough and lack of appetite. If a dog needs to be vaccinated against kennel cough it should also be vaccinated against canine influenza. The initial vaccine should be given through two doses 2-4 weeks apart and then every year thereafter.
-Lyme Disease: bacteria spread by ticks. Any dog that potentially has exposure by being in the yard, park or outdoor area should be vaccinated yearly.
-Leptospirosis: bacteria that can be found in lakes, ponds, or anywhere wildlife has been and should be vaccinated yearly as well.

Core vaccines for cats are the Distemper Combination and Rabies. The Distemper Vaccine protects against the contagious virus Rhinotracheitis (Herpes), C
