Vaccines

CORE VACCINES

 Core vaccines cover viruses and diseases commonly found in the state of Hawaii that your pet is likely to encounter.

DHAPP vaccine

(canine distemper- hepatitis - adenovirus- parainfluenza - parvovirus)

A canine vaccine. Aids in preventing canine distemper, infectious canine hepatitis caused by canine adenovirus type 1, respiratory disease caused by canine adenovirus type 2, canine parainfluenza virus, and canine parvoviral enteritis caused by canine parvovirus.

Leptospirosis vaccine
A canine vaccine. Leptospirosis is a bacterial infection that spreads through urine, infected water sources, and wildlife. It can affect both pets and owners. Symptoms include fever, vomiting, lethargy, decreased appetite, jaundice (sign of liver damage), or kidney failure. This is considered a core vaccine due to the prevalence of leptospirosis in Hawaii and widespread wildlife. Vaccination helps prevent or decrease the effects of an infection.

FeLV vaccine

(feline leukemia virus)
A feli
ne vaccine. This virus is a widespread infection of outdoor cats or cats born with the disease from the mother cat. This virus causes immunosuppression that can result in chronic or serious illness that can be fatal.  Because the virus tends to take many months before it causes disease, infected cats can appear completely normal and healthy. For this reason your veterinarian may suggest a blood test to make sure it is not infected before vaccination.

FVRCP vaccine

(feline herpesvirus - calicivirus - panleukopenia)
A feline vaccine. Aids in preventing feline viral rhinotracheitis (FVR) caused by feline herpesvirus-1, respiratory disease caused by feline calicivirus (FCV), and feline panleukopenia (FPL) caused by feline parvovirus (FPV).

 

Lifestyle Vaccines

These optional vaccines account for different pet lifestyles such as regular boarding, daily daycare, or out of state travel.

Bordetella vaccine

A canine vaccine. A contagious infectious bronchitis. Symptoms (such as dry, hacking cough) can be mild or more severe.

This vaccine is recommended for pets in close, frequent contact with other dogs (daycare, boarding, dog park).

Canine Influenza vaccine

A canine vaccine. A highly contagious viral infection transmitted by direct contact with respiratory secretions (coughing, barking, or sneezing) or contaminated objects. Symptoms include coughing, sneezing, decreased appetite that persists for 10-20 days. This infection is typically not responsive to antibiotics or cough suppressants.

This vaccine is recommended for pets in close, frequent contact with other dogs (daycare, boarding, dog park).
