High Quality Pet Vaccines
for the Greater New Bedford Area

High Quality Pet Vaccinations

Capeway Veterinary Hospital is committed to providing the highest quality vaccines for the pets of Fairhaven and the greater New Bedford area.


Aren’t All Pet Vaccines the Same?

Some of the older pet vaccinations that are still in use by other facilities have been shown to cause cancerous tumors at the injection site as well as immunological conditions later in life. At Capeway Veterinary Hospital, we use only the most technologically advanced vaccines designed to prevent the problems caused by the older vaccines while still being effective at preventing disease. Our focus is on the safety of the pet.


What Vaccinations Should My Dog Receive?

Our veterinarians will work with you to determine which vaccines your dog needs based on his or her level of risk. Some of the common vaccines given to most dogs are listed below:

  • DA2P combination (distemper, hepatitis, parainfluenza, parvovirus)—Puppies receive a three-part series of the DA2P vaccination, and then a booster in one year. After that, dogs are given the DA2P vaccination every three years.
  • Rabies—Puppies are given their first rabies vaccination at 12 weeks of age, and then receive a booster at one year old. After that, dogs are given rabies vaccinations every three years.
  • Leptospirosis—Dogs who are considered at risk for leptospirosis receive this vaccination annually.
  • Lyme disease—Dogs who are considered at risk for Lyme disease receive this vaccination annually.
  • Bordetella—Dogs at risk of bordetella are given this vaccination annually.
  • Canine influenza—Dogs at risk for canine influenza receive this vaccination annually.

What Vaccinations Should My Cat Receive?

Our veterinarians will work with you to determine which vaccines your cat needs based on his or her level of risk. Some of the common vaccines given to most cats are listed below:

  • FVRCP (feline viral rhinotracheitis, calcivirus)—Kittens receive a three-part series of the FVRCP vaccination, and then another booster at one year old. After that, they are given FVRCP every three years.
  • Rabies—Kittens are given their first rabies vaccination at 12 weeks of age, and then receive a booster when they are one year old and annually after that.
  • Feline leukemia—Kittens receive a two-part series of the leukemia vaccination, and then another booster at one year old. After that, they are given the vaccine every two years as adults.

If you have any questions about our high-quality vaccines, which vaccinations your pet should receive, or any of the diseases they are protected against, please contact our helpful staff and veterinarians.
