Pet Vaccinations Services - Protecting Against Diseases
At Pawsitive Veterinary Clinic, we understand that vaccination is an essential part of responsible pet ownership. As a pet owner, you want the best for your furry friend, and that includes keeping them healthy and safe from harmful diseases. That’s why we offer a wide variety of vaccinations to help protect your pet from a range of illnesses.
Our team of experienced veterinarians and trained staff are committed to providing the best possible care for your pet. We follow the latest vaccination protocols and use only the highest quality vaccines to ensure the safety and well-being of your furry companion.
At Pawsitive Veterinary Clinic, we recommend that all pets receive core vaccinations. These are essential vaccines that protect against diseases that are widespread, highly contagious, and potentially fatal. Core vaccines are given to all pets regardless of their lifestyle or environment.
The core vaccinations that we offer include:
1. Rabies Vaccination
Rabies is a deadly virus that can be transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected animal. It is a mandatory vaccine in the UAE and is given to all pets over the age of four months. The vaccine is given annually to dogs and every three years to cats.
2. Canine Distemper, Adenovirus, and Parvovirus Vaccination
These vaccines are given to puppies and dogs to protect against three highly contagious and potentially fatal diseases: distemper, adenovirus, and parvovirus. These diseases can cause respiratory problems, neurological damage, and severe dehydration. The vaccine is given in a series of shots and then repeated annually.
3. Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, and Panleukopenia Vaccination
These vaccines protect against three common viral diseases in cats: rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia. These diseases can cause respiratory infections, ulcers in the mouth, and gastrointestinal problems. The vaccine is given in a series of shots and then repeated annually.
In addition to core vaccinations, we also offer non-core vaccinations for pets that have specific lifestyles or risk factors. These vaccines are not given to all pets but are recommended based on their individual needs.
The non-core vaccinations that we offer include:
1. Bordetella Vaccination
Bordetella is a highly contagious bacterial infection that causes kennel cough. This vaccine is recommended for dogs that are frequently exposed to other dogs, such as those that go to dog parks, daycare, or boarding facilities. The vaccine is given annually.
2. Canine Influenza Vaccination
Canine influenza is a highly contagious respiratory infection that can cause severe illness in dogs. This vaccine is recommended for dogs that are at risk of exposure, such as those that go to dog shows or travel frequently. The vaccine is given annually.
3. Feline Leukemia Virus Vaccination
Feline leukemia virus is a highly contagious viral infection that can cause various health problems in cats, including cancer. This vaccine is recommended for cats that go outdoors or live in multi-cat households. The vaccine is given in a series of shots and then repeated annually.
4. Feline Immunodeficiency Virus Vaccination
Feline immunodeficiency virus is a viral infection that weakens the immune system of cats. This vaccine is recommended for cats that go outdoors or live in multi-cat households. The vaccine is given in a series of shots and then repeated annually.
