Annual Dog Vaccinations Rio Rancho

Annual Dog Vaccinations Rio Rancho

Coronado Pet Hospital offers the convenient annual dog vaccinations Rio Rancho pet owners need. We recommend that all dog owners schedule an appointment with a  veterinarian to discuss which routine vaccinations your pet should receive. Keeping your dog on a consistent vaccination schedule can reduce the likelihood of contracting diseases and safeguard their long-term health.

The ASPCA categorizes dog vaccines as core and non-core. Core vaccines are considered standard for all dogs while non-core vaccines may be administered depending on the dog’s exposure risk.

Core vaccines attempt to prevent:

  • Canine Parvovirus: A highly contagious virus that affects a dog’s gastrointestinal system. It can be fatal within three days of symptom manifestation and is easily transmitted. Contaminated dogs, people and objects can spread the virus to non-vaccinated dogs.    
  • Canine Distemper: A viral illness that harms a canine’s respiratory, gastrointestinal and nervous systems. It is contagious and there is no cure.
  • Infectious Canine Hepatitis: A potentially fatal disease of the liver and other organs. There is no treatment for the infection, which is primarily spread by contact with another infected dog.
  • Rabies: An often-fatal virus that affects a dog’s central nervous system and brain. It is transmitted through a bite by another infected animal.   


Non-core vaccines include:

  • Bordetella (kennel cough): A bacterial infection that harms a dog’s respiratory system. It can spread in similar fashion to how the common cold spreads in children.
  • Borrelia (Lyme disease): Transmitted through ticks, it requires a lengthy treatment of antibiotics to destroy the bacteria.
  • Leptospirosis: A bacterial disease with a range of symptoms commonly transmitted through infected urine or urine-infected soil, water, food or bedding. The disease can be mild with a quick recovery time or it can become a serious illness resulting in death.
