Preventative Services

Disease prevention is the cornerstone of any veterinary practice, and your pet experts at Indian Creek Veterinary Hospital take preventive care seriously. Your pet care needs and lifestyle may be quite different from the needs of another, making customized vaccination schedules a necessity. We offer vaccines and preventive treatments to every pet, tailored to meet the needs of both the patient and the pet owner.


All pets have some risk of exposure to disease, even those confined to the home. State and federal laws may even influence your vaccination plan. Whatever the case for your dog, cat, exotic, or pocket pet, the professionals at ICVH are prepared to discuss your unique circumstances and create a disease prevention plan specifically for your special pet.


Pet Vaccines


Just which vaccinations are advisable will depend upon the lifestyle routines of you and your pet: where you live, how much time your pet spends outdoors, and how often you go to breed shows, dog parks, or enjoy outdoor activities such as camping or fishing trips.


Booster shots reinforce the protection of vaccinations. During the annual veterinary examination, your pets schedule for both vaccinations and booster shots will be determined by factors such as age and overall health.


Important vaccinations for your dog may include:

  • Canine distemper, a widespread virus that can be fatal

  • Parvovirus, a severe gastro-intestinal disease

  • Rabies

  • Bordetella

  • Lyme disease

  • Leptospirosis

  • Parainfluenza

  • H3N2/H3N8

Important vaccinations for your cat may include:

  • Feline distemper, a fatal disease commonly seen in younger cats

  • Rhinotracheitis and calicivirus, two viruses causing respiratory diseases

  • Feline leukemia

  • Rabies

Puppies and kittens require more frequent immunization vaccinations and boosters as their immune systems are not fully developed. 


Vaccinations and preventives are inexpensive protection against costly treatments or premature death of a pet. Always safeguard your pet through regular vaccines and preventive care. Contact us for answers to your questions or concerns regarding vaccines and the diseases they prevent.
