Pet Vaccinations & Parasite Prevention at Farmington Hills

Pet Vaccination & Reproductive Surgery Schedule

Current dog and cat vaccinations are essential when it comes to protecting your furry friend from a range of contagious, often serious, diseases. Having your pet spayed or neutered not only prevents the birth of unwanted litters; these common veterinary surgeries can also help to protect your pet against some serious forms of cancer. They may prevent unwanted behaviors such as howling, scooting, roaming, and animal aggression.

Kitten Vaccinations

In their first year, kittens need the following shots and vaccinations to protect them from serious diseases. 

  • 6 to 8 weeks
    • FVRCP (Rhinotracheitis, Calcivirus, Panleukopenia, Chlamydia)
  • 9 to 11 weeks
    • Booster: FVCRP (Rhinotracheitis, Calcivirus, Panleukopenia, Chlamydia)
    • Feline Leukemia Test (Recommended)
  • 12 to 14 weeks
    • Booster: Rhinotracheitis, Calcivirus, Panleukopenia, Chlamydia

  • 14 to 16 Weeks
    • Booster: Rhinotracheitis, Calcivirus, Panleukopenia, Chlamydia
    • Feline Leukemia 2
    • Rabies
  • 6 months

    While the following treatments aren't kitten vaccinations, microchipping, spaying and neutering can help to protect your cat for a variety of health issues and thus, can pretty comfortably fall within the scope of preventative health care.

    • Spay (females) - Spaying your female cat prevents the birth of unwanted litters of kittens, protects your cat against serious illnesses, and can help to prevent behaviors such as howling and scooting that accompany heat cycles.
    • Neuter (males) - Neutering your male cat prevents your pet from fathering unwanted kittens, protects your cat against various illnesses, and can help to prevent territory marking (spraying), roaming, howling, and cat aggression. 
    • Microchipping - A microchip is a form of identification which is about the size of a grain of rice and is place underneath your pet's skin. Microchipped pets have a much better chance at being reunited with their owners if they are lost.

Puppy Vaccinations

In their first year, puppies need the following shots and vaccinations to protect them from dangerous diseases. 

  • 6 to 8 weeks
    • DHPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus)
  • 9 to 11 weeks
    • Booster: DHPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus)
    • Bordetella (Optional)

    Although the following are not puppy vaccinations, spaying, neutering, and microchipping help protect your dog from a number of health issues, and therefore fall under the preventive health care umbrella. 

    • Spay (female) - Dog spaying is procedure which will prevent your female dog from mothering puppies. It can also, however, prevent certain cancers and regulars cycles of heat which would attract roaming males to your property.
    • Neuter (male) - Dog neutering can help to prevent your male dog from fathering unwanted puppies, as well as protecting your dog from a number of serious cancers, and helping to reduce the risk of roaming and dog aggression.
    • Microchipping - A microchip is a permanent form of identification that is about the size of a grain of rice and placed under your pet’s skin. Pets that are microchipped have a better chance of being reunited with their owners if they are lost.
