Why Pet Vaccinations Matter

Pet vaccinations are crucial for safeguarding your pet from infectious diseases and ensuring their health. By stimulating the immune system, vaccines provide immunity against specific pathogens, protecting your pet from potential health risks. Vaccinations also contribute to community health by preventing the spread of contagious diseases among pets, maintaining herd immunity, and reducing the risk of transmission to vulnerable animals and humans.

In addition to individual and community-wide benefits, pet vaccinations play a vital role in public health by reducing the transmission of zoonotic diseases. Vaccinating pets against these diseases helps protect both animal and human populations from potential health threats.

Vaccinations for Cats

  • Core Vaccinations: For our feline friends, core vaccinations include Rabies and FVR (Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis). These vaccinations protect your cat against common and potentially life-threatening diseases.
  • Recommended Non-Core Vaccinations: In addition to core vaccinations, we recommend vaccinations for Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) to provide comprehensive protection for your cat’s health.

Vaccinations for Dogs

  • Core Vaccinations: Dogs require core vaccinations such as Rabies and DHLP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, and Leptospirosis). These vaccinations are vital for preventing serious illnesses and ensuring your dog’s long-term health.
  • Recommended Non-Core Vaccinations: For added protection, we also offer vaccinations for Lyme disease, Influenza, and Kennel Cough. These non-core vaccinations are recommended based on factors such as your dog’s lifestyle and risk of exposure to certain diseases.

Benefits of Vaccinating Your Pet

  • Disease Prevention: Vaccinations help protect your pet from common and potentially deadly diseases.
  • Long-Term Health: By staying up-to-date on vaccinations, you can help ensure your pet enjoys a happy and healthy life.
  • Community Health: Vaccinating your pet not only protects them but also helps prevent the spread of contagious diseases to other animals in the community.

When to Vaccinate Your Pet

It’s essential to start your pet’s vaccination schedule early. Puppies and kittens should begin their vaccinations as early as 6-8 weeks of age, with booster shots given at regular intervals after that. Adult pets should receive regular vaccinations as recommended by our veterinarians to maintain their immunity.
