Pet Vaccines

Vaccines Save Lives

Vaccinating your pet is absolutely essential, especially in the community we call home. Durham is a beautiful place to spend time with your furry companion in the great outdoors…which is where scary diseases live.

Protection Against Harmful Diseases

Ensuring your pet is up to date on life-saving vaccinations is paramount. Per North Carolina law, the rabies vaccination is required for all dogs and cats. Many other vaccines will protect your pet from severe disease or even death.

Your Fear Free vet team will thoroughly review the benefits of each vaccine and the best vaccination plan for your unique pet. Vaccines save lives, giving you many happy years with your pet.

Dog Vaccine Information

Core vaccines are essential for all pups regardless of breed, lifestyle, or environment. Core vaccines for dogs include…

  • Canine rabies
  • Canine distemper/parvovirus
  • Bordetella

Non-core pet vaccines are based on your pet’s activities, lifestyle, and environmental needs. Non-core vaccines for dogs include…

  • Influenza (flu)
  • Leptospirosis
  • Lyme disease

Canine influenza is highly contagious and tricky to treat, making the influenza vaccine imperative for pups who spend time with other pups, especially boarding or in doggy day care. Lepto and lyme disease are highly contagious and tied to local exposure to standing water, dog parks, and wooded or grassy areas where ticks thrive.

Do You Need a Day Admission?

What if your pet needs a visit but can’t fit into an exact time slot? Reserve a day admission spot!

Day admissions are super convenient for busy pet parents, plus allow us to see as many patients as possible as we juggle a full day. You bring your pet to us in the morning; our team has the flexibility throughout the day to help your pet.

We ask day admissions to arrive between 8 and 8:30 a.m. and can usually accommodate small exceptions. Admitting your pet with a vet assistant takes about 10 minutes. You’ll update us on your pet’s health and fill out an admission form.

Admitted patients are not left lonely in a cage. Our medical team checks on them often. We also often walk admitted dogs, and always give lots of love and attention. During the day, we’ll call you with updates and an optimum treatment plan, then set up a time for you to come back and pick up your fur baby.

PROUD TO BE FEAR FREE!
We’re a Fear Free hospital because Fear Free is best medicine.
