Furry friends bring companionship, love, and joy to life, so it’s only natural to want to give them the best lives possible. The best way to safeguard your pet’s health and happiness is by preventing them from getting sick in the first place. A comprehensive schedule of vaccinations personally recommended for your pet – will protect your pet from a whole host of severely contagious and potentially fatal diseases.
Why You Should Vaccinate Your Pets
Many of the diseases against which vaccines guard are difficult or impossible to treat, painful for pets, and sometimes fatal. Vaccinating pets protects them from the dangers and discomfort of falling ill with serious diseases. Vaccinating your household pets also protects your human family members from contracting zoonotic diseases, like rabies and leptospirosis.
Choosing the Right Vaccines for Your Cat or Dog
Although certain dog and cat vaccines are required by law (called core vaccines), others are elective and administered on a case-by-case basis (called non-core vaccines). Core vaccines for dogs protect them from rabies, canine distemper, parvovirus, and hepatitis. Core vaccines for cats prevent them from contracting rabies, feline distemper, feline calicivirus, and rhinotracheitis.
Are Pet Vaccines Safe?
We use only the highest quality vaccines available to ensure patient safety. Rarely, a patient will have a slight reaction to a vaccine, but these are generally mild and clear up on their own. Our veterinarian will never recommend a vaccine for a pet, which he believes isn’t necessary. We make vaccination recommendations based on each patient’s unique lifestyle, condition, and exposure risk.
