We are now the only hospital in Brentwood to offer safer, low-dose Canine and Feline vaccines with next-generation PureFil Technology.
Brentwood Family Pet Care has long been dedicated to providing the highest standard of veterinary care for cats and dogs. Now, with the addition of new low-dose BI Ultra Duramune vaccines we are able to provide an improved vaccination experience for dogs and cats. The new vaccines come from Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. (BI) and offer important advantages over the traditional vaccines still used in most veterinary clinics.
- The new BI Ultra Duramune vaccines utilize a revolutionary low-dose formula to deliver the same high degree of protection as traditional 1 milliliter shots with 50% smaller volume per dose. In fact, BI Ultra Duramune is actually the first ½ milliliter canine vaccine ever created. This smaller vaccine dose results in a quicker and more comfortable injection.
- The same cutting-edge technology that enables the smaller dose also results in decreased risk of unpleasant reactions to the vaccination. But with these new, safer vaccines such reactions are almost nonexistent (down to .01%) and the dog or cat will feel more comfortable during and after the vaccination.
We believe these new low-dose vaccines are better because they tend to cause fewer unpleasant reactions, particularly in sensitive pets and yet still provide excellent protection. Symptoms you may see after any kind of vaccination include slightly decreased appetite and activity, mild fever, or swelling at the vaccination site.More severe reactions, including hives, muzzle swelling and persistent vomiting or diarrhea are rare, but should be taken seriously and reported to us immediately.
Thanks to the proprietary PureFil Technology used to create the vaccines, reactions of any kind are significantly decreased. PureFil Technology filters out much of the unrelated proteins and cellular waste that are typically responsible for unpleasant reactions.
We currently offer BI Ultra Duramune products, including vaccines for parvovirus, distemper, adenovirus, coronavirus, and all four strains of leptospirosis for dogs. These vaccines are available in two different combinations, including one that protects against all of the above conditions. For cats we offer two combination vaccines: FELV (Feline Leukemia Virus) and FVRCP-C (Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Panleukopenia, Chlamidia psittaci and Calicivirus). Now you see why we use the initials?
BI Ultra Duramune vaccines allow us to provide a safer, more comfortable vaccination experience for pets, something that fits very well with our Mission and our Passion:
“Loving Your Pets Like You Do”
Currently we have the Distemper/Parvo Combination Ultra Duramune vaccine with and without Leptospirosis available for dogs. We also offer FELV and FVRCP-C Ultra Duramune vaccines for cats.
