Vaccinations For Your Pet
Vaccinations Help Your Pet Avoid Serious Complications in the Future
Pets today can live longer, healthier lives than ever before in part because of vaccines that help protect them from deadly infectious diseases. Over the years, vaccines against dangerous diseases have saved millions of pets and virtually eliminated some fatal diseases (Distemper, panleukopenia, Rabies, Parvoviral enteritis, etc) that were once common. Unfortunately, many infectious diseases still pose a significant threat to dogs and cats that are unvaccinated. Although vaccine programs have been highly successful and vaccines are considered routine today, we (as caregivers) and you (as pet parents) cannot afford to become complacent about keeping pets up-to-date on their vaccinations.
Many vaccines are available for use in dogs, cats, ferrets, pigs, goats, and rabbits but not every pet needs every available vaccine. Some vaccines are considered core vaccines and should be administered to all pets, whereas other vaccines are optional and may be recommended for pets based on a variety of factors, such as their risk for exposure to disease, boarding, grooming, dog parks, etc. Vaccine recommendations can also change throughout a pet’s life ( boosters as a puppy or kitten, yearly vaccinations as a young pet and then three year vaccinations- or even titers as your pet matures), other variables like travel, boarding and grooming habits change. We will consider all these factors as we determine which vaccines your pet should have.
