Why is it important to have my pet vaccinated?

Vaccinations protect your pet from highly contagious and/or deadly diseases and improve your pet’s overall quality of life.

Does vaccination ensure protection?

After a pet has been fully vaccinated, only rarely will their immune system fail to fight off the disease. It’s important to follow the vaccination schedule recommended by your veterinarian to reduce the possibility of a gap in protection.

Which vaccinations does my pet need?

“Core” vaccines are recommended for all dogs and cats. “Non-core” vaccines are recommended for certain pets based on their risk of exposure to the disease, such as through their lifestyle or geographic location.

For example, vaccination against Lyme disease is recommended for dogs that live or travel to areas where the disease-carrying ticks are found. 

Why do puppies and kittens require a series of vaccinations?

Very young animals are highly susceptible to infectious diseases because their immune systems are not yet mature. The first dose of a vaccine prepares your pet’s immune system to recognize the virus or bacteria. Later doses help further stimulate the immune system to produce the important antibodies needed to protect your pet from disease.

How often will my pet need to be vaccinated?

After the initial puppy or kitten vaccine series is complete, many vaccines provide adequate immunity when given every few years. Others need to be given more often to maintain a level of immunity that will continually protect your pet.

Every pet is different and that’s why we provide individualized vaccine schedules that fit with your pet’s lifestyle!
