Our Jacksonville veterinarian knows that you want to spare your pets from any unnecessary pain or suffering. Here at Argyle Animal Clinic, we prioritize preventative care, including cat and dog vaccinations that allow us to do just that. Is your pet unvaccinated, or behind on their annual booster shots?
It's never too early to get your new pet established with our Jacksonville veterinarian, who will assess your pet's needs and help you plan an immunization schedule that's right for them. Most puppies and kittens get their first core vaccines at 8 weeks, followed by boosters every two weeks until 16 weeks. Because young animals have developing immune systems that are more vulnerable to contagious diseases, starting them on a comprehensive round of core vaccines is the best way to reduce their risks and build a lifelong foundation of preventative health.
In an effort to stop the spread of contagious, devastating diseases like rabies, most American cities require certain immunizations for pets. Here in Jacksonville, the rabies vaccine is mandatory for canines, felines, and ferrets, and each of these species must also have a current up to date rabies tag specific to Jacksonville. Of course, the annual Rabies Tag is the bare minimum for preventative care in Florida. If your pets spend time in day care centers, dog parks, or boarding facilities, you may be required to provide proof of additional core vaccinations. Bordetella is also a required vaccination in Jacksonville. At Argyle Animal Clinic, we recommend annual rounds of core vaccinations for every Jacksonville pet, as well as non-core vaccines for pets with unique risk factors.
The rabies vaccine is mandatory for every cat in Jacksonville, but what about the other core vaccines cats need? Our core cat vaccinations in Jacksonville include:
Depending on your cat's lifestyle, we may also recommend some non-core vaccinations that will reduce their risks. For example, if your cat spends time outdoors or is exposed to wildlife and strange pets regularly, they may benefit from one or more of these vaccines:
We recommend the following core vaccines for every dog:
Of course, many dogs in Jacksonville spend time outdoors, interacting with plants, animals, and insects that increase their risks. Our non-core dog vaccinations include:
