Pets Their Best Shot
Pets are at risk of contracting common deadly diseases such as distemper, parvo, and panleukopenia. March is National Pet Vaccination Month, so take action to keep your pets safe and healthy while stopping the spread of disease.
Create a Pet Vaccine Routine
Let National Pet Vaccination Month serve as an annual reminder to keep your pet’s vaccines up to date, as spring is the season when these diseases often become more active.
End Preventable Euthanasia
Pet vaccination saves pet lives by helping to achieve herd immunity and stopping the spread of disease.
Prevent Heartache and Save Money
Receive free or low-cost vaccines: treating parvo or distemper can be unaffordable or untreatable
Help All Pets Become #VaccinatedAndLoved
Show your support – and spread the word to give pets their best shot. Almost 30% of pet parents don’t take their pet for annual veterinary visits, and studies show low immunity among pets to common, preventable diseases.

Frequently Asked Questions
Feel confident caring for your pet’s vaccination needs.
Vaccinations help prevent deadly diseases, as well as the high cost of treating them. Vaccines also help prevent diseases passed among animals and those passed from animals to humans.
According to experts, rabies, parvovirus, distemper in dogs and panleukopenia in cats are the most prevalent deadly diseases preventable by vaccines affecting pets nationally. Petco Love aims to end unnecessary pet euthanasia and by providing awareness of and access to free and low-cost pet vaccines.
Canine parvovirus is a highly contagious virus that can affect all dogs. Unvaccinated dogs and puppies younger than four months old are the most at risk.
Feline panleukopenia (FP) is a highly contagious viral disease of cats caused by the feline parvovirus. Kittens are most severely affected by the virus.
Canine distemper is a contagious and serious disease caused by a virus that attacks the respiratory, gastrointestinal and nervous systems of puppies and dogs.
Canine 1-DAPPv is a combination vaccine approved for protection against canine distemper virus, adenovirus type 1 and 2, canine parainfluenza virus, and canine parvovirus.
Like core booster vaccines for dogs, this version for cats helps prevent rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia (distemper) in cats, all of which can be deadly.
Vaccinal titer testing is a scientifically proven method of determining immunity and protection against the core vaccine agents. Even fully vaccinated pets may not be immune, so titer testing helps identify animals that would benefit from vaccination.
