Why Vaccinating Your Pet Is Important
Vaccines are the best way to prevent many pet diseases and illnesses. Vaccines help prevent animal-to-animal and animal-to-human transmission of disease. Unvaccinated pets can also contract devastating diseases from wildlife, such as rabies and distemper.
It is critical to your pet's overall health to be vaccinated. Our veterinary staff will provide you with the most up-to-date vaccine protocol for your family pet. The vaccination schedule will include core vaccines that are required in your area. Additionally, non-core vaccines are recommended based on your individual pet's unique needs.
How Often Should My Pet Be Vaccinated
Kittens and puppies require a series of vaccinations over the first year of their life. Good veterinary practices require the series be completed as scheduled to optimize the vaccines protective properties.
As our pet's age, regular vaccinations are important to keep their immune system fully operational and provide adequate protection against a variety of diseases. Our staff adheres to the most up-to-date American Veterinary Medical Association vaccination recommendations for your family pets.
How Will My Pet Feel After A Vaccination
Common vaccine side effects can include discomfort and swelling at the vaccination site, mild fever, decreased appetite, decreased activity, and a mild respiratory reaction. Rare, more serious side effects are less common. It is important to discuss your pet's vaccination history with our veterinary team and determine a plan to help reduce vaccination side effects.
