Vaccinating Your Pet
One of the most important aspects of caring for your pet’s health is vaccinating them against potential diseases. There are a variety of diseases that affect our pets and animals. This makes proper vaccination vital in protecting them from the many types of illnesses they are susceptible to, such as rabies, parvo, distemper, and influenza, to name a few.
It’s important to consult with us about the unique risks of living in our region. We will be happy to discuss the benefits of protecting your pet with vaccinations, as well as, provide you with information on the required vaccinations for your pet.
Austin Urban Vet Center is dedicated to offering preventive care that keeps your pet as healthy as they can be for as long as possible.

Can Vaccines Make My Pet Sick?
We use the highest-quality and safest vaccines on the market to keep any adverse reactions to a minimum. However, it is possible for some kittens and puppies to appear lethargic the day after their first booster shots. This is normal.
If your recently vaccinated pet is not acting like themselves, please let us know immediately. For those pets that do experience a rare allergic reaction, we might opt to discontinue the vaccine responsible. While rare, vaccine reactions do happen!
Recommended Dog & Puppy Vaccines
There are certain vaccines that every dog needs, in addition to optional vaccines given based on risk level and lifestyle. Rabies, distemper, hepatitis, parvo, and parainfluenza are part of the core immunization category, which means they're essential to your dog's health.
Recommended Cat & Kitten Vaccines
Cats may live out their days indoors, but that does not mean they are safe from infection. Humans can unknowingly carry harmful bacteria and viruses with them into their homes, which puts our feline friends at risk. Our recommended vaccines for cats include:
- Panleukopenia (feline distemper)
- Feline leukemia (recommended for kittens and indoor/outdoor cats)
