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 that were once common.
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.
How We Can Help
While vaccine programs have been highly successful and vaccines are now considered routine, many infectious diseases still pose a significant threat to unvaccinated dogs and cats.
Therefore, it is critical to keep your pets up-to-date on their vaccinations!
Your pet is unique and no single vaccine program is ideal for every pet in every situation. Vaccine recommendations can also change throughout a pet’s life, as travel habits and other variables change. Our doctors and skilled staff are well-educated about veterinary vaccines and will consider all of these factors to determine a vaccination schedule and ongoing booster routine that accounts for your pet’s lifestyle, overall health, risk for exposure to infectious disease, and other factors.
