Many vaccines are available for use in dogs and cats, 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. Vaccine recommendations can also change throughout a pet’s life, as travel habits and other variables change. We will consider all these factors as we determine which vaccines your pet should have.
Vaccines help pets live longer, healthier lives. Although vaccine programs have been highly successful and vaccines are considered routine today, we cannot afford to become complacent about keeping pets up-to-date on their vaccinations. Protecting your pet is our primary goal. Call us today to set up an appointment to discuss your pet’s vaccination needs.
