Vaccinating Your Dog or Cat

At Advanced PetCare of Northern Nevada, vaccine programs are tailored for the individual animal and take into account the pet’s breed, lifestyle, geographic location and health status. You will be an active partner in making vaccination decisions for your pet.  We closely follow the guidelines established by the AAFP for cats and by AAHA for the dogs.  Our belief is that each pet has a different lifestyle and deserves to be given individual attention and consideration.

Dog vaccination schedule:

We believe in designing a personalized vaccine protocol for each dog to maximize the protection against any diseases your canine pet companion is likely to be exposed to. Our veterinarians will answer all questions you may have during your next appointment at our hospital.

Vaccinating your puppy in the Sparks Area:

Our veterinarians recommend every three to four week boosters from 6 weeks to 20 weeks – DAPP vaccine. Most puppies will receive at least 4 vaccines but some will receive 5. Merial recommends in the Sparks area that the last parvo virus booster be given AFTER 20 weeks of age.

Age Vaccination
5 weeks Parvovirus: for puppies at high risk of exposure to parvo, some veterinarians recommend vaccinating at 5 weeks. Check with your veterinarian.
6 & 9 weeks Combination vaccine* without leptospirosis.
12 weeks or older Rabies: Given by your local veterinarian (age at vaccination may vary according to local law).
12 & 15 weeks** Combination vaccine
Leptospirosis: we only recommend if traveling outside of western Nevada.
Lyme: where Lyme disease is a concern or if traveling to an area where it occurs.
Adult (boosters)§ Combination vaccine
Leptospirosis: we only recommend if traveling outside of western Nevada.
Lyme: where Lyme disease is a concern or if traveling to an area where it occurs.
Rabies: Given by your local veterinarian (time interval between vaccinations may vary according to local law).

*A combination vaccine, often called a 5-way vaccine, usually includes adenovirus cough and hepatitis, distemper, parainfluenza, and parvovirus. Some combination vaccines may also include leptospirosis (7-way vaccines) and/or coronavirus. The inclusion of either canine adenovirus-1 or adenovirus-2 in a vaccine will protect against both adenovirus cough and hepatitis; adenovirus-2 is highly preferred.

**Some puppies may need additional vaccinations against parvovirus after 15 weeks of age. Consult with your local veterinarian.

§ According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, dogs at low risk of disease exposure may not need to be boostered yearly for most diseases. Consult with our veterinarians to determine the appropriate vaccination schedule for your dog. Remember, recommendations vary depending on the age, breed, and health status of the dog, the potential of the dog to be exposed to the disease, the type of vaccine, whether the dog is used for breeding, and the geographical area where the dog lives or may visit.

Bordetella and parainfluenza: For complete canine cough protection, we recommend Intra-Trac II ADT. For dogs that are shown, in field trials, or are boarded, we recommend vaccination annually with Intra-Trac II ADT.

Cat vaccination schedule:

We believe in designing a personalized vaccine protocol for each cat to maximize the protection against any diseases your feline pet companion is likely to be exposed to. Our veterinarians will answer all questions you may have during your next appointment at our hospital.
