Core and Non-Core Vaccines

Pet vaccinations are divided into two primary categories: Core and Non-Core.

Core vaccines, including the Rabies vaccination, are recommended for all pets.

Some of the most common core vaccines for dogs include distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus, and parainfluenza. For cats, core vaccines include feline calicivirus, panleukopenia, and viral rhinotracheitis.

Non-core vaccines are recommended and administered based on lifestyle factors, like whether your cat goes outside or your dog attends doggy daycare. Common non-core vaccines include Bordetella, Lyme Disease, and feline leukemia.

When you bring your pet to us for vaccinations, one of our skilled veterinarians will help you determine which would benefit them most. Our goal is to protect your companion from common and potential diseases without over-vaccinating them.
