Pet Vaccinations

Annual immunizations will be administered at your pet’s wellness exam in accordance with your pet’s vaccination schedule. Puppy and kitten vaccinations, as well as booster vaccinations for older dogs and cats, are critical to ensuring that your pet lives a long and happy life. Vaccinating your pet on a regular basis will help to protect them from a variety of dangerous, potentially fatal diseases and ailments. All pets require core vaccines because of the risk of exposure, the severity of disease, or human transmission.

Basic vaccines for dogs include canine parvovirus, distemper, canine hepatitis, and rabies. Non-core vaccines are given to dogs based on their risk of exposure. Among them are vaccines against Bordetella bronchiseptica, Borrelia burgdorferi, and Leptospira bacteria.

Panleukopenia (feline distemper), feline calicivirus, feline herpesvirus type I (rhinotracheitis), and rabies vaccines are all essential. Depending on the cat’s lifestyle, non-core vaccines such as those for feline leukemia virus, Bordetella, Chlamydophila felis, and feline immunodeficiency virus are administered.

Our veterinarians can determine which vaccines are best for your pets.
