Dog Vaccinations

Vaccinations are important to help protect your dog—and sometimes your family! –from the many serious illnesses they are often exposed to.  We will work closely with you to customize an immunization schedule that best matches your dog’s lifestyle.  Our belief is that each dog has a different lifestyle and deserves to be given individual attention and consideration.

Canine Vaccines Include:

Rabies Vaccine.  Rabies virus causes fatal disease in many mammals, both wild and domestic, including dogs and humans.  This vaccine is required by law.  The first Rabies shot your pet receives is good for 1 year.  Subsequent canine Rabies vaccinations immunize your pet for 1- 3 years depending upon the vaccine your pet receives. 

Distemper Vaccine (DHPP).  This vaccine is a ‘combo’ vaccine that protects your dog against distemper virus, adenovirus types 1 & 2, parainfluenza, and parvovirus. We recommend this vaccine for all dogs. We offer 1 year and 3-year distemper vaccines.

Canine Distemper Virus can cause lethargy, fever, and many symptoms related to the respiratory, gastrointestinal, and nervous systems; any body tissue may be affected. CDV can be fatal. Infection occurs by exposure of the air passages to airborne CDV particles.

Canine Adenovirus usually infects the liver, causing symptoms related to that organ; it can be fatal in severe cases. Infection occurs by exposure to infected urine, feces, and body secretions.

Canine Parvovirus can cause diarrhea, vomiting, loss of appetite and weight loss; dehydration is also a serious concern. Parvovirus can be rapidly fatal. Infection occurs by oral exposure to infected feces, and parvovirus can live in the environment for extended periods. 

Bordetella Vaccine.  This vaccine helps protect your dog against “kennel cough”. Bordetella is highly contagious and spreads easily when many dogs are in the same space. We recommend this vaccine for dogs that go to boarding kennels, doggy daycare, or grooming. The Bordetella vaccine is administered once a year unless required by your boarding facility or doggie daycare.

These professionals have been like Angels to our family. They have taken care of our sweet old boy Karma. They have given tirelessly of themselves during the pandemic and I am so happy we found a Vet that I truly trust and appreciate. 10/10 would reccomend!

The doctor was very helpful and friendly. He was able to provide me with education about my dog in a very easy to understand manner. The price was great and the location is amazing. I will definitely be taking my dog here while we are stationed in Illinois.

Jeff Kordell is the best vet! I have been a pet owner for about two years now. When I first got my dog I went to 7 different vets before a friend told me about AMC. This office is an hour away from my house and is SO worth the drive! The office is very clean and the staff is wonderful. If you are looking for a vet that truly loves animals, look no further!

This is the only place I ever would trust my animals- Dr. Kordell has taken care of my dogs like they are his own. Dr. Spector has two of my dogs in her care for congestive heart failure and the whole team, including the techs are amazing.
