Providing vaccinations to pets helps them activate their immune responses and prepares them to combat disease-causing pathogens in the future. Learn more below.
We believe that one of the most important aspects of caring for your pet’s health is vaccinating them against potential diseases. Vaccinations offer protection against major viral and bacterial diseases that cats and dogs may be exposed to, most of which are preventable. Traveling with pets, interacting at dog parks, boarding pets, and even the occasional backyard gathering can all pose potential risks for your pets. It is our goal to provide the highest level of care for your pet, and vaccinations are an integral part of your pet’s overall health. Pets at any age are susceptible to disease but are particularly vulnerable at their younger life stages.
While rabies is the only vaccine that is required by state law, there are numerous diseases that can negatively impact the health of your pet. In fact, there are areas within our city that make it a requirement to license your pet. Pet licensing helps prevent the spreading of rabies, promotes responsible pet ownership, and reduces the tragedies associated with lost pets and pet overpopulation.
Following a proper vaccination schedule will help ensure you are doing your part to keep your pet healthy and free from any potential risks. Additionally, we recommend that all cats and dogs be placed on a monthly parasite prevention and be tested bi-annually for parasites.
