November Vaccine Clinic 11/19/22


Welcome! PetcoLove sponsors our November Vaccine Clinic. We are giving pets their best shot for a healthy life by offering free DHPP and FVRCP vaccines.

What is a DHPP vaccine…

The DHPP vaccine for dogs is a combined vaccination for distemper, adenovirus, parainfluenza, and parvovirus. Distemper affects dogs’ respiratory and nervous systems and can cause coughing, sneezing, and neurological problems. This disease is often fatal. The adenovirus vaccine protects dogs against CAV-2—which can cause kennel cough—and liver infections caused by CAV-1.

The parainfluenza vaccine protects against another strain of kennel cough.

Parvovirus is a deadly disease that commonly affects puppies. It can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and death, even with aggressive treatment. It’s also highly contagious, so pet parents should keep young dogs out of communal areas until two weeks after they’ve had all puppy vaccinations and boosters.

What is an FVRCP Vaccine…

  • Feline viral rhinotracheitis is a feline herpes virus that can affect a cat’s upper respiratory system. Signs of this virus can include cold or flu-like symptoms such as sneezing, congestion, a runny nose, swollen or drippy eyes, and fever. Your cat may also lack energy or lose its appetite, and dangerous dehydration and starvation may ensue. Furthermore, cats whose immune systems are compromised by feline viral rhinotracheitis can develop secondary bacterial infections, increasing the risk of death.
  • Feline calicivirus is another potentially fatal upper respiratory virus. In addition to respiratory symptoms such as sneezing, congestion, a runny nose, and conjunctivitis, it can also cause inflammation in your cat’s mouth. It can manifest as ulcers or sores on any of the tissue in a cat’s mouth, including the gums, lips, and palate, and can even create sores on the nose. This virus can lead to severe respiratory infections like pneumonia. Some particularly deadly strains of feline calicivirus can affect other parts of a cat’s body, leading to organ diseases or lameness. 
  • Feline panleukopenia You may have heard of feline panleukopenia by a different name—distemper. It’s widespread, highly contagious, and can be deadly. This virus usually affects a cat’s bone marrow and lymph nodes, leading to decreased white and red blood cell production and severely lowered immunity. Symptoms can include fever, vomiting, loss of appetite, severe diarrhea that may be bloody, dehydration, and exhaustion. Once contracted, it can quickly overtake a cat’s immune system and may lead to death.

All three of these feline illnesses have the potential to be painful or fatal, but they’re all highly preventable with the proper vaccines.
