Data-Driven Pet Solutions: The Importance of Preventive Care

"By working together and leveraging the data at our fingertips, we can better help pet owners understand that preventive care can have long-term impacts on their pet’s health and happiness"

Seeing more than three million pets each year, Banfield analyzed its electronic veterinary health records system for data and insights on some of the most common preventable diseases; this article provides key findings from the new report.

Feline Leukemia Virus Vaccination

FeLV vaccines prevent viral shedding and progressive infection and decrease the opportunity for at-risk cats to become infected or seriously ill.

FeLV remains a serious disease, and veterinarians should continue to follow existing guidelines for vaccination and prevention to lower its prevalence.

Canine Adenovirus Type 2 Vaccination

The MLV vaccine for canine adenovirus protects against CAV-2 as well as CAV-1.

CAV-2 is endemic in healthy dog populations worldwide and is a significant viral cause of CIRD, particularly when combined with viral or bacterial co-infections. Vaccination with an MLV vaccine is critical for reduction of clinical signs and to prevent canine infectious hepatitis. 

Vaccination Overview: Leptospirosis

Dogs that may come in contact with wildlife or outdoor water sources are among the group that should receive a leptospirosis vaccine.

This overview on the leptospirosis vaccine goes over the basics, as well as serovars, serogroups, and sequence types.

Canine Parainfluenza Virus Vaccination

Canine parainfluenza virus can have a significant impact on young or vulnerable dogs when it interacts with other pathogens.

Routine vaccination helps reduce the role that CPIV plays in coinfection with a growing number of pathogens, thereby keeping at-risk dogs and populations healthier. 

Canine Parvovirus Vaccination

The canine parvovirus vaccine is considered a core vaccine, making it a critical part of a routine wellness plan.

Parvovirus is a serious disease that can be readily prevented with the vaccine. Client communication on the disease process, its status as a core vaccine, and antibody tests to assess titer levels can all contribute to continued protection.

Is There an Optimal Age for Cat Spay or Neuter?

Several studies illustrate the benefits of spaying/neutering a cat before it reaches 5 months of age, the approximate time it reaches sexual maturity.
