Immunizations

Vaccines and regular health exams are critical preventive care measures to help protect pets from potentially deadly infectious diseases like Distemper, Parvovirus, Leptospirosis and Rabies in dogs; and Panleukopenia, Feline Leukemia Virus (FLV) and Rabies in cats.

Vaccinations protect pets from disease by exposing their body's immune system to inactive or parts of a type of bacteria or virus. Our doctors will help you decide which vaccines are appropriate for your pet's risk factors. Proper administration and giving a vaccine at the correct age and time interval is critical for proper protection. Vaccination is particularly critical in young animals that have naive immune systems. Vaccination typically starts at 6-8 weeks of age and the puppy and kitten series is completed around 16 weeks of age.

Vaccinations are generally accompanied by doctor consultation and examination to ensure your pet is healthy enough for the vaccines. Your hospital will let you know when your pet is due for booster vaccinations during their adult years.
