Did You Know? Only 50% of dogs and a mere 40% of cats are vaccinated against vaccine preventable diseases like distemper, parvovirus, hepatitis and feline leukemia. These diseases damage or take the lives of countless pets each year.
In an effort to help protect these unvaccinated pets and educate pet owners on the necessity of vaccinations, Drs. Foster and Smith has significantly lowered prices on all of its vaccine products and is offering a free and simple step-by-step online video on how to vaccinate your pet economically at home.
Can I give the Lyme vaccine in the same syringe as my dog’s yearly booster?
No. You should always use a new, sterile needle and syringe each time you give a vaccine or any injectable medication. Also, you should never mix vaccines and try to administer them together. Once done, safely dispose of the needle and syringe in the proper way, by either taking it to your pharmacist or veterinarian and/or disposing of it in a “sharps” container.
If my dog already has Lyme disease, will this vaccine help him?
No. The Lyme vaccine is not a cure for Lyme disease; it is a preventative. If your dog is showing signs of Lyme disease, take him to his veterinarian immediately for testing and treatment. Once he has completed his treatment and you have gotten the okay from your veterinarian, you can then administer the vaccine.
Your dog should be vaccinated for Lyme disease if you live in an area where deer ticks and Lyme disease are a concern, or if you will be traveling to an area where ticks are present. Also, dogs that are taken hunting or field training will benefit from the extra security that vaccinating against Lyme disease provides.
Does my dog need to be tested for Lyme disease before being vaccinated?
No. You do not need to have your dog tested for Lyme disease before administering the vaccine unless he is showing symptoms of Lyme disease. If he is showing signs of the disease such as high fever, shifting leg lameness, lethargy, swelling of the joints, and loss of appetite take him to his veterinarian immediately for diagnostic tests.
Puppies need to be vaccinated at 5, 6, 9, 12, and then 15 weeks of age to prevent and protect them from potential diseases they may be exposed to. For the majority of puppies and dogs, Drs. Foster & Smith recommend the following:
