Preventive Care


Vaccinations are an important part of your pet’s preventive health care plan. Your pet is unique, and the veterinarians at VCA West Suburban Veterinary Hospital develop individual vaccine protocols for every pet. We recommend and encourage yearly vaccines for feline and canine patients. Along with providing vaccinations against many contagious diseases, the exam allows us the opportunity to see your pet each year to discover other possible health issues.
