Pet Vaccines

Vaccines for your Jacksonville pet are an essential aspect of any preventative veterinary medicine program at Mandarin Animal Hospital.

Dog/Canine Vaccines - After your puppy receives its first year series of vaccines, we like to move our patients to the three year vaccination protocol for DA2PP and Rabies vaccines. We recommend your pet remain on the yearly protocol for Leptospirosis, H3N8, and Lyme (if indicated) based on your pet's lifestyle and exposure potential. We also like to immunize our patients every six months for Bordetella and perform a fecal analysis for internal parasites on that same schedule. Yearly heartworm testing is also performed.

Cat/Feline Vaccines - After a kitten has gone through its first year series of pet vaccines, we recommend moving to the three year protocol for the FVRCP vaccine. Unlike with canines, we recommend our feline friends receive a yearly Rabies vaccine due to the effectiveness and safety of the Merial Recombinant Rabies vaccine that we use. If it is indicated by the lifestyle and exposure potential of your cat, we also recommend the annual Feline Leukemia Vaccine.
