Preventive Care


Different pets have different risk factors requiring different vaccinations. The veterinarians of VCA Desert Inn Animal Hospital follow the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) guidelines for vaccination.

AAHA recommendations consist of core vaccinations - vaccinations that all pets should have - and non-core vaccinations - vaccinations that pets that have different risk factors should have.

At your pet’s wellness exam, our veterinarians will discuss the different vaccination options with you and help you decide which offer the appropriate protection for your pet’s unique lifestyle, age, breed, and activities.
