San Antonio Pet Vaccinations 

Is it time that you vaccinated your pet? Turn to Alamo Dog & Cat Hospital. We carry eight essential vaccinations for dogs and cats. This page outlines what we offer and offers key information about when to vaccinate dogs and cats and why. Should you have questions about our offerings or your pet’s health, contact us today.  

The Vaccinations We Administer 

You can come to our clinic for the following canine vaccines: 

  • DHLPP-CCV: This vaccine protects against multiple diseases, including distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parainfluenza, parvovirus, and coronavirus. 
  • DHLPP: This vaccine is like DHLPP-CCV but does not include protection against coronavirus. 
  • Rabies: The rabies vaccine protects dogs against the rabies virus. Texas requires dogs and cats to get the rabies vaccine when they are four months old.  
  • Bordetella: The Bordetella vaccine prevents Bordetella bronchiseptica, an infection that often leads to kennel cough.  
  • Canine influenza: This vaccine can keep dogs safe from the canine influenza virus, which causes symptoms similar to kennel cough. 
  • Rattlesnake: The rattlesnake vaccine can be especially important if your dog spends a lot of time outdoors. It will boost a dog’s antibody response to rattlesnake venom.  

You can come to our clinic for the following feline vaccines: 

  • FVRCP: The FVRCP vaccine is a combination vaccine that protects against three common feline diseases: feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and feline panleukopenia. 
  • Feline Leukemia: This vaccine can prevent the feline leukemia virus, which weakens the immune system and can cause various health problems, including cancer. We recommend cats get tested for the virus before receiving its vaccine.  
  • Rabies: We offer one-year feline rabies vaccines. Like the canine vaccine, this protects against rabies and is required by the state of Texas.

When Should You Vaccinate Your Pet? 

Generally, you should start vaccinating your dog or cat when they are six to eight weeks old. Additionally, your pet may need vaccinations every two to four weeks until they are 16 weeks old. 

Core vaccines, including DHLPP, are usually included in initial vaccinations. It is often recommended that pets receive boosters one year after the first vaccination and every three years after that. 

Whether your pet needs non-core vaccines, such as those for feline leukemia, bordetella, and canine influenza, will depend on their risk factors and lifestyle. Consult our veterinarians to determine if these vaccines are necessary. 

Rabies vaccinations are crucial for dogs and cats in Texas. As outlined previously, Texas law requires dogs and cats to receive their rabies vaccine when they are four months old. After the initial booster, you may need to revaccinate your pet every one to three years.
