Pet Vaccinations

One of the most important things you can do as a responsible pet owner is to get your four-legged friends vaccinated. Pet vaccinations protect animals from illnesses by stimulating their immune system to develop antibodies against a particular virus or bacteria. In turn, these diseases are prevented even if your pet is exposed. PetVets on the Go evaluates your pet’s vaccination needs at their first puppy/kitten wellness check. Additionally, we establish an immunization schedule and maintenance vaccines for your adult pet.

Our Core Vaccines

Pet Vaccines include core and non-core vaccines. We highly recommend core vaccines  because they protect against dangerous diseases. Core vaccines protect against bacteria and viruses considered  severe, common, or a threat to humans. The same as vaccinating your pet protects their health, it is also protects the public and other pets.

The core vaccines we administer include:

  • Rabies*
  • Canine parvovirus
  • Canine hepatitis
  • Canine distemper
  • Feline calicivirus
  • Feline rhinotracheitis
  • Feline panleukopenia

Nearly every U.S. state and Indiana mandates pet vaccination against rabies. Infected animals spread rabies when they come in contact with other animals or humans. Many common species of wildlife, including racoons and bats, can carry rabies. Therefore, all pets need this required vaccine.

Non-Core Vaccines

To best accommodate our patients’ needs, we customize vaccinations based on your pet’s breed, lifestyle, and risk of exposure. Then, we administer non-core vaccines to fully protect your pet against diseases they’re at risk of coming in contact with.

Common non-core vaccines include Lyme disease (spread by ticks), Bordetella (also known as kennel cough), and canine influenza. Travel habits or the amount of time your pet spends outside or with other animals can determine your pet’s need.
