For dogs, core vaccines recommended by the Brooklyn veterinarians at Atlantic Animal Care, include the following:

  • Canine Distemper,
  • Canine Adenovirus (hepatitis),
  • Canine Parvovirus,
  • Canine Parainfluenza,
  • Leptospirosis

Combined into one injection, the dog vaccine is called DHPP (combination of Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus and Parainfluenza). When Leptospirosis is added, the vaccine is called DHPPL. Rabies is also a core vaccine for all dogs living in Brooklyn and a requirement by the State of New York for all NY dogs.

Just like for Brooklyn dogs and puppies, city cats and kittens should follow a personalized vaccination protocol, as recommended by our vets, and required by the State of New York. Atlantic Animal Care provides the following core cat vaccinations for cats and kittens in Brooklyn, NY:

Again, these Brooklyn cat vaccines (just like the aforementioned dog vaccines) are combined into one injection, called FVRCP. FVR is Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, which causes respiratory infections; C is for Calicivirus, another upper respiratory infection and P is for Panleukopenia, also known as Feline Distemper. The Rabies vaccine for Brooklyn cats and kittens is also administered by our Brooklyn vets and required by the State of New York.

Our Veterinarian

With each series of cat or dog vaccines administered at Atlantic Animal Care, our veterinarians and veterinary staff perform a complete nose-to-tail pet examination of your cat, dog, kitten or puppy. Regular pet wellness exams for your Brooklyn pet are extremely important as they establish an overall picture of your pet's health, and are a necessary preventative pet health tool in the happy, long life of your pet. In addition to canine wellness exams and feline wellness exams, our head veterinarian-Jo Ann Greenberg, VMD- and veterinary care assistants from Atlantic Animal Care educate pet owners about contagious dog diseases, contagious cat diseases, zoonotic diseases (diseases that can be passed between animals and humans).
