Sitting Dog — Veterinary Care in Murfreesboro, TN

Responsible pet ownership requires yearly vaccinations for your animals. So many diseases are preventable with regular inoculations or with monthly pills. Barfield Animal Hospital wants to provide a long, healthy life for your pet and one key factor is vaccinations.
Vaccinations serve the purpose of preventing highly contagious and deadly diseases from not only your pet but from among the overall pet population. Here are some of the typical vaccinations:


  • DHPPC, which prevents against canine distemper, adenovirus type 2, parvovirus, parainfluenza, and coronavirus. Adherence to a strict schedule is required for success.
  • Bordatella is recommended, but is required if your dog will be around other dogs.
  • Lyme vaccine is for dogs in tick-prone areas.
  • Rabies shots are required by the state.


  • Test for feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency for protection of other cats.
  • FVRCCP, this prevents feline rhinotracheitis, calici, chlamydia psittaci, and panleukopenia.
  • Feline bordatella, again recommended for cats going outdoors and socialized cats.
  • Rabies shots are required by the state.

As you can see, there are some deadly diseases that your pet needs protection against, as well as to not contribute to the further spread of the diseases. Bring your pet to Barfield Animal Hospital to begin your schedule of vaccinations. Contact us for an appointment today!
