Dog Vaccinations

EZ Pet Clinic believes that your dog should be protected against those diseases which are most common, highly contagious and which cause serious illness.

Rabies

This incurable viral disease affects the central nervous system of almost all mammals, including humans. It is spread through contact with the saliva of infected animals (which can include skunks, foxes, raccoons, and bats) through bites or any break in the skin. Vaccination will provide cats with much greater resistance to rabies if they are exposed to disease. You must be aware that there is no cure once it occurs. For this reason, municipalities absolutely require that all cats receive rabies vaccinations on a regular basis.


Canine Distemper

Vaccination against this often fatal, hard-to-treat disease is absolutely essential. Highly contagious, it is spread by discharges from the nose and eyes of infected dogs. Symptoms can include listlessness, fever, coughing, diarrhea and vomiting; convulsions and paralysis may occur in the disease’s final stages. The distemper virus attacks the nervous system, which may be permanently damaged even if the dog recovers.


Canine Parvovirus

Very contagious, debilitating and widespread, the disease caused by this virus emerged in many parts of the world in 1978. Spread through infected feces, the highly resistant virus can remain in the environment for many years. Symptoms include high fever, listlessness, vomiting and diarrhea. Vaccination is the only certain method of preventing this potentially fatal disease, which is most severe in young pups.


Canine Coronavirus

Canine Coronavirus is a virus that affects the intestinal tract of dogs. It causes a gastroenteritis similar to parvo. Canine Coronavirus is a highly contagious virus affecting not only puppies, but older dogs as well. The clinical signs of Canine Coronavirus vary from mild and undetectable to severe and fatal. Most common signs include: depression, fever, loss of appetite, vomiting, and diarrhea. The diarrhea can be watery, yellowish-orange in color, bloody, mucoid, and usually has an offensive odor. Sudden death and abortions sometimes occur. The duration of illness can be anywhere from 2-10 days. It is estimated that at least 50% of all virus-type diarrhea is infected with both Parvovirus and Coronavirus. It is estimated that over 90% of all dogs have had exposure to Coronavirus at one time or another. Because it is a virus, there is NO CURE for coronavirus at this time.


Infectious Canine Hepatitis

Caused by Canine Adenovirus Type I, this disease is transmitted among dogs by contact with secretions, such as saliva, infected urine or feces. Its symptoms are similar to those of the early stages of distemper. Causing liver failure, eye damage and breathing problems, the course of this disease can range from mild to fatal. Vaccination remains the best protection.


Canine Tracheobronchitis (Canine Cough)

Canine cough is a highly contagious infectious disease of the upper respiratory tract of the dog. Also termed infectious canine tracheobronchitis, this disease is caused primarily by Bordetella bronchiseptica, canine parainfluenza virus, and type 2 canine adenovirus. Like the common cold in humans, the organisms that cause canine cough are spread through coughing and sneezing. Your dog can catch the disease simply by being in close proximity to an infected dog. Training kennels, humane societies, pet shops, boarding kennels, dog shows, veterinary hospitals, grooming salons or your local park are just some of the places where your dog may come in contact with this debilitating disease.


K9 Influenza H3N8 (Dog flu)

Canine influenza is a highly contagious respiratory infection of dogs caused by a novel influenza virus that was first discovered in 2004. Canine influenza has been documented in 30 states and the District of Columbia. At this time, the canine influenza virus is very prevalent in many communities in Colorado, Florida, New York and Pennsylvania. Like influenza viruses that infect other mammals, canine influenza virus causes an acute respiratory infection in dogs. It is one of several viruses and bacteria that are associated with canine infectious respiratory disease, or what’s commonly referred to as kennel cough. The canine influenza virus can cause respiratory disease by itself or along with other canine respiratory pathogens. Unlike human influenza, canine influenza is not a seasonal infection. Infections can occur year round. Like influenza viruses in other species, canine influenza virus causes a flu-like illness consisting of cough, sneezing and nasal discharge (runny nose). Fever can also occur, but it is usually transient and rarely noticed by pet owners. Virtually all dogs exposed to the canine influenza virus become infected; about 80 percent develop a flu-like illness, while another 20 percent do not become ill. Like influenza infections in other species, canine influenza is highly contagious. Infected dogs shed virus in their respiratory secretions for 7 to 10 days, during which time the dog is contagious to other dogs.
As with other respiratory pathogens, the most efficient transmission occurs by direct contact with infected dogs and by aerosols generated by coughing and sneezing. The virus can also contaminate kennel surfaces, food and water bowls, collars and leashes, and the hands and clothing of people who handle infected dogs.


Leptospirosis

Leptospira is a gram negative spirochete bacteria that is very common in this region of the United States. There are over 250 different serovars (subtypes) and it is a zoonotic (meaning that people can contract this) disease. There has been increased prevalence of Leptospira disease since 1983 due to urbanization of rural areas, increasing contact between dogs and wildlife. Leptospira penetrates through the mucosal membranes, eyes, conjunctiva, mouth, any breaks in the skin. After disseminating in the blood, leptospira tends to target the liver and kidneys but can also go to other organs in the body such as the spleen and central nervous system (CNS). Leptospirosis can cause kidney failure, inflammation/toxicity of the liver (hepatitis), inflammation of the blood vessels (vasculitis) causing hemorrhage, inflammation of muscle tissue (myositis and myalgia), inflammation in the eye (uveitis) causing blindness, inflammation in the nervous system (meningitis), abortion in food animals and immune mediated illness with chronic disease. Leptospira generally targets adult animals one to six years of age, but all ages can be affected. Dogs who are most commonly infected are those who are outdoors with exposure to surface water, dogs over 15 pounds, males, hounds, and hunting, working, or herding breeds. However, all dogs are susceptible.


Lyme Disease

Lyme Disease is a disease caused by a spiral-shaped bacterium, Borrelia burgdorferi. The disease can affect dogs, cats, horses, cattle, birds, wild animals, and people. The disease is transmitted by the bite of a tick. Lyme Disease appears to have a world-wide distribution. Cases have been reported in at least 30 of the United States. Signs of Lyme Disease are vague and resemble various other conditions. Initial signs include a rash, fever, joint swelling and pain, and swollen lymph nodes. Within days, weeks, or even months, more serious signs develop, such as heart, brain, and joint disorders. Painful joint swelling is the most common advanced sign. This vaccination is recommended if you live in an area inhabited by ticks or if you plan on taking your dog to the park, woods, out camping, or hunting.
