Our Lake Forest veterinarians recommend protecting your pet from a variety of diseases by adhering to a regular pet vaccination schedule. We understand that it can be challenging to budget all of your family’s expenses while still looking out for your pet’s best interests, too. Affordable pet vaccines are available every day at our veterinary hospital conveniently located at 24301 Muirlands Blvd., Suite P. in Lake Forest.

Here are the pet care vaccines we offer to help protect the health of your animal companions:
- DAPP: This dog vaccination provides protection against Distemper, Adenovirus, and Parainfluenza. These are all serious illnesses that could dramatically affect the health of your dog:
- Distemper – is a viral disease of the lungs, intestines, and nervous system. Symptoms may include vomiting, diarrhea, fever, nasal and ocular discharge, coughing, convulsions, and death.
- Adenovirus – is a viral disease of the liver, kidneys, and lungs.
- Parainfluenza – is a viral disease that is part of the “kennel cough” complex, causing a hacking, “honking” cough.
- Parvo – The Parvovirus can cause vomiting and diarrhea in unprotected puppies. The DAPP vaccine series begins when your dog is a puppy to provide protection, with booster shots as recommended by our veterinarian throughout your dog’s life. Parvo is a viral disease of the intestinal tract. Symptoms include vomiting, severe bloody diarrhea, and occasional death. Parvo can be prevented with a simple vaccine series when your pet is a puppy, followed by regular boosters for adult dogs.
- Bordetella: This is sometimes referred to as “kennel cough”, and is frequently experienced by unprotected dogs that are exposed to the bacteria. Symptoms can include a high-pitched cough, gagging, and sneezing. You should definitely have your dog protected before exposing him or her to other dogs at kennels, dog parks, doggy day-care, etc.
