Vaccines recommended and provided by Alexis Road Animal Hospital for your dog
DHPP: (Distemper/ Hepatitis/ Para influenza/ Parvovirus) for dogs
Vaccination with DHPP can be started at 6-8 weeks of age. A booster shot needs to be repeated every 21 days. We recommend that your puppy is vaccinated at least 4 times between 6 weeks to 16 weeks. If your dog is 16 weeks or older and has not been vaccinated before, then we recommend minimum two sets of vaccines to be given 21 days apart. Annual DHPP vaccines are recommended at HRAH for the rest of your dog life.
Rabies for dogs
The rabies vaccine can be given as early as 12 weeks of age. The first vaccine is effective for only one year. The next rabies vaccine will be effective for three years provided your pet is not overdue. It is required by law in Michigan for your pet to have the rabies vaccine and be licensed with the city you reside in. We are happy to vaccinate your dog with the rabies vaccine and provide you with a rabies certificate.
Bordetella (Kennel cough) for dogs
The bordetella vaccine is for dogs that are going to be boarded, groomed or are likely to come in contact with other dogs on a daily basis. The intranasal or subcutaneous vaccine is given every 6 months or annually depending on the risk of exposure to infected dogs. The first time your pet is given the bordetella vaccine it will be the first vaccine and then a booster in 21 days. Then your pet will be good for 6 months to 1 year depending on exposure
Leptospirosis vaccine for dogs
Lepto-4 (canicola, grippotyphosa, icterohaemorrhagiae-pomona) is recommended at HRAH. Series of two vaccines is given three weeks apart. Annual Lepto vaccines are recommended for the life of your dog. Leptospirosis cases have been reported in Detroit. Leptospirosis is a life-threatening zoonotic disease transmitted through contact with urine from infected mammals (raccoons, rats, dogs).
Lyme disease vaccine for dogs
Vaccination for Lyme disease is recommended in case you are planning to travel up North or any other endemic area. Series of two vaccines given 21 days apart is followed by annual vaccination.
