At Nichols Veterinary Care, we prioritize preventive care as fundamental to your pet's health and well-being. Vaccinations play a pivotal role in safeguarding your furry companion from preventable diseases, thereby contributing to a long and joyful life. 

These vaccinations are essential for protecting your pet against potentially life-threatening diseases by stimulating the immune system to recognize and combat specific viruses or bacteria. In doing so, vaccines provide effective protection, helping to curb the spread of contagious diseases within the pet community.

Canine Vaccines:

  • Distemper, Adenovirus, Parvovirus (DAP): Guards against highly contagious viral diseases in dogs.
  • Rabies: Essential for preventing this lethal viral disease affecting all mammals, including humans.

  • Leptospirosis: Provides protection against bacterial infections that can impact the kidneys and liver.
  • Lyme Disease: Advisable for pets residing in regions with an elevated risk of encountering ticks carrying the bacteria responsible for Lyme disease.
  • Canine Influenza: Essential for safeguarding your furry companion against a contagious respiratory infection caused by influenza A viruses. This vaccine is particularly recommended for dogs in areas where exposure to the canine influenza virus is prevalent.
  • Rattlesnake Vaccine: Provides crucial protection against venomous snake bites and offering peace of mind during outdoor adventures.

Feline Vaccines:

  • Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, Panleukopenia (FVRCP): Shields against common respiratory and gastrointestinal infections.
  • Rabies: Crucial for preventing this fatal disease in cats and mitigating its transmission to humans.
