Dog Vaccinations

Distemper Vaccinations 

  • Distemper Virus
  • Hepatitis Virus
  • Parainfluenza Virus
  • Parvo Virus
  • Corona Virus

Canine Distemper Virus causes respiratory disease, diarrhea, fever, muscular twitches, seizures and discharge from the eyes and nose area. This disease is common among dogs in shelters.

Canine Hepatitis is a virus common to young, unvaccinated animals and attacks organs throughout the dog’s body producing respiratory disease, fevers, abdominal pain and enlarged lymph nodes.

Parainfluenza Virus causes respiratory disease and can develop into pneumonia. It causes “Kennel Cough,” which is the inflammation of a dog’s voice box and windpipe.

Parvo and Corona Viruses cause severe intestinal problems in dogs. Symptons of those infected include vomiting, bloody diarrhea, depression and dehydration.

Vaccination Recommendations:

  • Start puppy vaccinations at 6-8 weeks of age
  • Revaccinations every 3 weeks until 14-15 weeks of age
  • Revaccination should start one year after initial doses are administered and then every 3 years after that to maintain adequate protection

 

Leptospirosis Vaccination

Leptospirosis is a virus most known to severely infect the kidneys but can also infect other organs as well. It is usually contracted when dogs eat grass that was previously infected by urine.

Vaccination recommendations:

  • Two doses at approximately 12 and 15 weeks of age
  • Annual revaccination to maintain adequate levels of immunity
  • Semi-annual revaccination (every 6 months) for dogs at high risk of exposure

 

Rabies Vaccination

The rabies virus attacks the nerve tissue and can affect all warm-blooded animals. Rabies vaccination of all dogs and cats (even indoor cats) is required in all states as it is also a threat to humans.

Rabies is spread by bite wounds and exposure to the saliva of infected animals. If your cat is unvaccinated and fights with a wild animal or is found with unknown wounds, it is suspect for rabies exposure. The disease develops slowly over 10 days into several months. While some infected animals withdraw and avoid contact with others, some may become unnaturally aggressive and may attack.

If a vaccinated rabies-infected animal shows signs of the disease, it can be given a booster vaccine and be considered safe from the infection. However, unvaccinated rabies-infected animals must be quarantined for 6 months or euthanized (humanely destroyed). Although infected humans can be vaccinated successfully in early stages of the disease, the treatment is costly and extremely uncomfortable.

Vaccination recommendation:

  • First vaccination is given at 3 months of age or older
  • Revaccinate in 1 year, and then revaccinate every 2 years, or annually in outdoor dogs or those at high risk of exposure to the disease

 

Bordetella “Kennel Cough”

Bordetella is the principle organism involved with Kennel Cough. Transmission usually occurs when dogs are housed together in close proximity such as in a boarding kennel, grooming parlor, or at a dog show. It causes a dry hacking cough that can persist for days or even weeks. We primarily recommend this vaccine for “at-risk” dogs that are to be boarded or that are groomed on a regular basis.

Vaccination recommendation:

  • First dose given at 3 weeks of age or older, at least 1 week before boarding, then annually as indicated

 

Lyme Disease

This tick-borne bacterial disease is caused by an organism called Borrelia Burgdorferi. It is largely contracted from deer ticks, but has also been found in brown dog ticks. Symptons of this disease include fever, pain, loss of appetite, lethargy and depression.

Vaccination recommendation:

  • First of two initial doses given at 7 weeks of age or older
  • Revaccination as indicated on a case-by-case basis

Testimonials

  • Dr. Haroush doesn’t only look after your pet as a professional, but he sees your pet as one of his own. With his extensive veterinary knowledge and fully-equipped hospital, he is able to give you peace of mind when it comes to your pet. The Animal Health Center really is the best place to take care of your pet’s problems. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Unlike large veterinary hospitals that deal with a myriad of pets hastily, this private practice gives you reassurance that your pet will be taken care of exceptionally on an individual basis.

  • When our Labrador Max became seriously ill during non-business hours, our local vet referred us to Bedford Katonah Vet Center.  This was a terrible experience, as they gave us no diagnosis but charged us several thousand dollars.  We took Max home against their advice and searched for a new vet. Thank God we found Dr. Haroush! He took Max immediately and saved him.  Dr. Haroush became our family vet and we tell everyone we know about him.  He is a tremendous Doctor and a great man!

  • I want to again thank you from the bottom of my heart for your patience and compassion and above all you expertise in diagnostic skills and the subsequent surgery you preformed on Ebony.  You may not remember, but Ebony Star suffered for more than half of her life (4 years) before I found your name one day on the internet when I was desperately looking for a veterinarian that could help her.

Luna is great as stalking and surprise attacks on the other cats. Thank you for your knowledge and compassion “for the animals”. I appreciate everything you and your staff has done for me and giving Luna a life she deserves.

  • We cannot thank you enough for saving Cayden. He is such a huge part of our lives and couldn’t imagine being without him. You have made it possible for him to be a puppy again and to enjoy his special life with us. It was such a gift to see him be reunited with his brother, Romeo and how happy they’ve been since his return. Again, thank you for taking such wonderful care of Cayden, we couldn’t have asked for more.
