It can also potentially spread to humans from infected animals. Fortunately, we have a vaccine that covers for lepto. This vaccine may be given in combination with DHPP.
Bordetella – Bordetella bronchiseptica is a common contributor to kennel cough complex. Bordetella is strongly recommended for any dog that will be exposed to unknown dogs, such as at boarding facilities, grooming facilities or dog parks. We do require Bordetella vaccination for dogs to board at our facility.
Influenza – Georgia was one of the hotspots for canine flu in 2016. We carry vaccines that protect against both strains of canine influenza virus (H3N8 and H3N2) to help protect your pet.
Lyme – Lyme disease is transmitted by the deer tick and it can lead to a variety of health problems including shifting leg lameness, inappetance, fatigue, fever, and in some cases, death. Lyme vaccination decreases the risk of transmission of this disease from ticks.

Leukemia – Feline leukemia is a viral disease that is highly contagious through the respiratory and salivary secretions of infected cats. Prior to vaccination against feline leukemia, we will test your cat to make sure they are negative, and then we will recommend vaccination.
FELINE LEUKEMIA & FIV TESTING Feline leukemia is a highly infectious disease that causes immunosuppression followed be a variety of other disease syndromes in the immunosuppressed cat. Cats may ultimately develop a form of cancer. The disease is spread via direct contact with infected cats or food and water dishes. FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus) is a slow developing disease that attacks a cat’s immune system leading to opportunistic infections. This disease is also infectious and is typically transmitted by bite wounds. We recommend testing kittens over 8-9 weeks, although we may repeat the test for FIV after 6 months of age. Outdoor cats should be tested annually, and all cats should be tested prior to vaccination for feline leukemia.
