Cat & Dog Vaccinations
Is It Really Safe to Vaccinate My Pet?
Your pet’s safety is important to us, too, so we understand your concerns about over vaccinating. To lower your pet’s risk for an allergic reaction to any of their vaccines, we space out their booster shots and only administer the vaccines they personally need for their health and lifestyle. Some dogs and cats are more at risk for certain infections than others, which is why we always take care to create a vaccine program that is tailored specifically to your pet’s needs. In the rare event that your pet does have a reaction to one of their vaccines, we’ll want to see them right away for treatment. Any vaccine that poses a risk to your pet’s health will be removed from their schedule.
What Diseases Do Cat and Dog Vaccines Protect Against?
Our hospital offers every vaccine your pet could possibly need in their lifetime for maximum disease protection. We provide vaccines for the following diseases:
- Kennel cough (Bordetella)
- Lyme disease
- Canine influenza
- Feline rhinotracheitis
- Feline calicivirus
- Feline leukemia
When Should I Start Having My Pet Vaccinated
Puppies and kittens should start getting their boosters at 6-8 weeks old, if possible. This is around the time that the antibodies they obtained from nursing start dwindling. This leaves them extra vulnerable to infection.
