VACCINATIONS

TCAP offers low cost vaccines, microchipping, and heartworm testing on a walk-in basis at each of its locations.

Every dog or cat will receive a free cursory physical exam prior to being vaccinated. This exam is extremely brief and is to make certain that your pet is healthy enough to be vaccinated. Your pet must be bright, alert, responsive, hydrated, eating and drinking normally and have pink gums. For a complete, comprehensive physical exam to discuss any problem your pet is having, please see your full service veterinarian. Because our wellness veterinarian must look at every pet, we cannot vaccinate your pet while it is in your vehicle. If you cannot get your pet in line for the exam, then we cannot vaccinate your pet. All dogs must be on a leash. All cats must be in a carrier. Cats not in carriers will not be vaccinated.

VACCINATION INFO:

Why should you vaccinate your pet?

Vaccination is a preventive measure and not a cure. Administering vaccines to your pet greatly improves their immune system by stimulating it to form disease fighting cells and proteins (known as antibodies) to protect against the disease.

About each vaccine:

Rabies: Rabies is a virus that may affect the brain and spinal cord of all mammals. The first rabies vaccination should be given at 3 to 6 months of age, with the first booster shot given one year later (at 15 months of age). Thereafter, give boosters annually.

Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza and Parvovirus (DHPP): Commonly called the “distemper shot,” this combination vaccine actually protects against the four diseases in its full name. It's given to puppies in a series of three vaccines and then given every year to adult dogs. Along with rabies, DHPP is considered a set of core vaccines: those universally recommended for puppies.

Bordetella (commonly called “kennel cough”): The bordetella virus causes an extremely contagious upper respiratory infection.

Heartworm Preventative Medication: Heartworms are contracted through mosquito bites. The best way to reduce the risk of infection is to administer a safe heartworm preventive that kills immature worms before they cause damage. Treatment for heartworms is risky and expensive so it is important to use year-round preventative medication since heartworm disease is preventable. Puppies should begin on heartworm preventative by 6 months of age. Any dog older than 6 months should be tested prior to beginning heartworm preventative. Testing is required annually even if your dog has been on preventative.

Feline Leukemia/Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FeLV/FIV) Testing: This testing is recommended for all cats, especially those with unknown histories. This is a blood test that checks for these infectious diseases in the cat’s blood stream. Leukemia and FIV are transmitted through bites, infected body fluids such as saliva, grooming, sexual contact and mother to offspring.

Feline FVRCP Combination (feline distemper): This vaccine protects against common upper respiratory diseases such as Rhinotracheitis, Calici, Chlamydia, and Panleukopenia, that cats can catch even if they live indoors. It is recommended if your cat is ever boarded, hospitalized, etc. Many veterinarians, boarding and grooming facilities require this vaccination.
