Non-Core Vaccines for Dogs and Cats

Non-core vaccines are given based on lifestyle factors including risk of exposure, environment, and socialization with and proximity to other animals. We may recommend the FeLV vaccine to protect your cat against feline leukemia, a disease prevalent among outdoor cats. If you have a dog, we may recommend the Bordetella and canine influenza vaccines, especially if your pet enjoys socializing at dog parks or regularly visits the boarding kennel and/or grooming salon.

It’s always important to sit down with your veterinarian to discuss your pet’s vaccine needs. Even pets who spend most of their time indoors can be at risk for infection and should receive the necessary vaccinations to stay safe. Our team in New Port Richey, FL can provide personalized advice based on your pet’s age, health, and lifestyle.

Cat And Dog Microchipping New Port Richey Fl

The Importance of Pet Microchipping

In addition to vaccinations, microchipping your pet is a simple, yet powerful way to increase the chances of being reunited with them should they ever get lost. We implant the microchip under your pet's skin, usually between the shoulder blades. This is a quick and easy procedure that can be done at any appointment. The microchip contains a unique ID number that can be read by a scanner at any veterinary office or animal shelter.

Microchipping offers a permanent, secure form of identification that cannot be lost or damaged like traditional tags and collars. It also provides an essential layer of protection for your pet's safety. That is why we offer cat and dog microchipping in New Port Richey, FL.
