Friendly Animal Hospital in Huntington Beach, CA, is the animal clinic for low-cost vaccinations and pet care. Each veterinarian at our facility is experienced and highly skilled.
There are two basic types of pet vaccinations available on the market. Core and non-core vaccines. Core vaccines are considered essential for all pets of a certain species. These vaccines protect against highly contagious and potentially severe diseases. Non-core vaccines are optional and depend on a pet's lifestyle and risk factors.
Pet vaccinations for dogs are a critical component of preventive healthcare. Vaccinations protect dogs from infectious diseases, help keep them healthy and prevent the spread of potentially serious illnesses. The following are some of the dog vaccinations we provide:
Canine Distemper Complex Vaccine (DHLP)
The canine distemper complex vaccine is a 3-year vaccine protecting dogs against the canine distemper virus, infectious canine hepatitis, parainfluenza, and leptospirosis.
The parvovirus vaccine is given based on a dosage schedule, depending on the dog or puppy’s age. It protects dogs against canine parvovirus, a deadly disease if not treated immediately.
The coronavirus vaccine is generally included with the annual DHLP dose. Not all dogs require this vaccine. This vaccine protects dogs from illness from living in packs or shelter-type facilities.
Lyme Disease Vaccine
The vaccine for Lyme Disease is given to dogs on a customized dosage schedule according to age. This vaccine protects dogs against Lyme Disease which is transmitted through tick bites.
The Bordetella or kennel cough vaccine is a non-core vaccination option available for dogs. It is designed to protect dogs from Bordetella bronchiseptica, a bacterium that contributes to a highly contagious respiratory infection known as kennel cough.
The rattlesnake vaccine is typically given to dogs about 30 days before potential rattlesnake exposure. It does not stop the poisoning but may diminish the potency long enough to find veterinarian care for your dog.
Pet vaccinations for cats are a vital aspect of responsible pet care. Vaccinations help protect cats from infectious diseases that can cause severe illness or even death. These vaccinations are included below:
Feline Distemper Complex Vaccine (FVRCPC)
The feline distemper complex vaccine is an annual shot to protect cats from feline panleukopenia, feline calicivirus, and feline viral rhinotracheitis.
Feline Leukemia Vaccine (FeLV)
The feline leukemia vaccine is also an annual shot given to cats to start and then given about every three years afterward. It protects cats against the feline leukemia virus that causes an incurable disease.
The rabies vaccine is a 3-year vaccine for dogs and cats. It protects them against the deadly rabies virus transmitted through saliva. This vaccine is required by law in every U.S. state because of its contagion rate.
