Vaccines Available at Clinics

The DA2PP vaccine protects against Distemper, Adenovirus Type 2 (Hepatitis), Parvo, and Parainfluenza.

Canine distemper is spread through direct contact, like drinking from water bowls, or airborne exposure, through barking, coughing, or sneezing. A distemper-infected dog can shed the virus for up to several months, putting dogs around them at risk.

The virus can be destroyed by most disinfectants and doesn't last long in the envrionemnt. Vaccines are the best way to prevent illness.

Symptoms
Diarrhea, vomiting, thick yellow discharge from the eyes and nose, cough, and in severe cases, seizures and neurological signs, such as ataxia (stumbling), head tilt, and paralysis.

Parvo or parvovirus is a highly infectious virus that affects dogs. It is most often spread through exposure to the feces of infected dogs. The virus can survive indoors for up to a month. Yet, outdoors it can live in soil for as long as a year.

Symptoms
Unexpected tiredness, lethargy, loss of appetite, fever, diarrhea, and vomiting. Dogs that have parvo generally don’t develop symptoms for three to seven days, but they can still be infectious.

Why should I vaccinate my dog?

Austin Animal Center has seen a rise in cases of distemper in the community. ⁠⁠Canine Distemper virus (CDV) falls under the umbrella of contagious diseases known as Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex (CIRDC), often called β€œKennel Cough”.

It is primarily spread through respiratory secretions, the virus can attack multiple parts of the body including the gastrointestinal tract and central nervous system. CDV mainly affects dogs, ferrets, and raccoons, and cannot be spread to cats or people. ⁠⁠

The good news is that the distemper vaccine is very effective at preventing this virus once it has time to incubate, and many dogs with mild to moderate cases of distemper can make a full recovery with supportive care.⁠⁠
