Pet Vaccinations Make Every Community Healthier and Happier
Having your pet vaccinated doesn’t just benefit their health; it also benefits the health of the surrounding human (and animal) populations here in Muncie and beyond. Vaccines have done more to prevent the spread of disease than just about anything else, and continue to do so today. Therefore, by keeping your pet healthy and as protected as possible against rabies, parvo, hepatitis, and other diseases, you’re also protecting your other family members, and your community as a whole.
Let’s keep your pet protected from the ongoing threat of disease. Request a vaccine appointment today!
Will My Pet Experience Side Effects After Being Vaccinated?
It is natural to have concerns about the overall safety of pet vaccines. Since Maplewood Animal Hospital is AAHA accredited, we follow the highest safety and quality standards for vaccinating pets. All of the vaccines we use are designed to provide the most protection with the smallest possible dose, and with the smallest likelihood for causing side effects.
However, it is normal for some pets to feel a little drowsy or be sensitive around the vaccination site for a short time after their appointment. These instances are rare, but not unheard of. If you have any concerns, let us know immediately.
The staff and Vet always listen to what we have to say, and care about you as a person and your pets.

We Offer Dog Vaccines and Cat Vaccines
Dogs and cats require their own separate vaccines. These include:
- Feline distemper (FVRCP combination vaccine)
- Feline leukemia (required for kittens and recommended for indoor/outdoor cats)
Which Vaccines Are Required?
The rabies vaccine is required for both dogs and cats under Indiana state law. This is because rabies is often found in skunks, foxes, raccoons, and coyotes, and is extremely deadly. The distemper, parvo, and hepatitis combination vaccine is also required for dogs, and the feline distemper combination vaccine is required for cats.
For all other vaccines, your pet’s age, location, and lifestyle will determine whether they are needed. To figure out your pet’s vaccine requirements and schedule, call us today at 765-284-3393.
