Pet Vaccinations
in Berthoud, CO

Pet vaccinations are one of the most important factors to ensuring pet wellness. Small animal diseases spread in many different ways and can be fatal, even to indoor-only dogs and cats. Most often, though, these viruses and bacteria are spread through the environment or from infected animals and are extremely common in the Berthoud and nearby Loveland, CO areas. Your veterinarian may develop a custom vaccination plan depending on your pet’s age, previous health history, and lifestyle.

Dog Vaccinations

The DA2PP vaccine, also known as “Distemper”, protects against Distemper, Adenovirus, Parvovirus, and Parainfluenza. While puppies at the age of three to six months are most at risk for contracting these diseases, they can result in fatality. Therefore, we recommend that dogs of all ages stay up to date on this immunization.

The Bordetella vaccine protects against the upper respiratory infection commonly known as “kennel cough”. We recommend this vaccine for dogs that may encounter other dogs at locations such as boarding facilities, daycare, grooming facilities, or dog parks.

Leptospirosis is a bacterial disease spread through the urine of wildlife. This disease can lead to acute kidney failure in dogs and can also spread to humans. Dogs that are likely to ingest contaminated water (from rivers, lakes, streams, etc.) should be vaccinated yearly against leptospirosis.

Canine Influenza, sometimes referred to as “canine flu” is a highly contagious respiratory infection. If your dog is vaccinated against Bordetella, we also recommend vaccinating against Canine Influenza as the risk groups are similar and the disease is spread between infected dogs.

Rabies is an incurable, fatal virus that is transmitted through the bite of an infected animal – dog, cat, racoon, bat, etc. – and can be transmitted to humans. The town of Berthoud, CO, as well as other towns nearby Loveland, CO, requires that all dogs be vaccinated against rabies.

Cat Vaccinations

The FVRCP vaccine protects cats against Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, and Panleukopenia. While kittens are most at risk of contracting these diseases, we recommend vaccinating felines of all ages, including indoor-only cats.

Feline Leukemia Virus is a fatal virus spread between cats through bite wounds, casual contact, and from mother to kittens. This virus is the leading viral cause of death in cats as infection status may be unknown and symptoms are not always obvious.

Rabies is a required cat vaccination in the town of Berthoud, CO, as well as in surrounding towns nearby Loveland, CO. It is an incurable, fatal virus that is spread through the bite of an infected animal – dog, cat, racoon, bat, etc. – and can be passed on to humans.
