Vaccines are intended to trigger immune systems and help our pets prepare to fight future infections. Pet vaccines vary not only among species but our veterinarians take into considerations a number of factors including:
Where does the pet live within the United States?
How often and where does the pet travel?
Does the pet go to a groomer, dog park and/or kennel?
If the pet is a cat, does it go outside or live among another cat?
We understand pet owners want their pets to be protected by vaccines but not over-vaccinated. Our veterinarians stay current on the vaccination guidelines established from the American Veterinary Medical Association, The American Animal Hospital Association and the American Association of Feline Practitioners. Please visit the Pet Vaccination section of our website to learn which vaccines we recommend for your adult pet.
In order to protect the health and safety of all of the pets at the veterinary center and grooming, we require a current exam and the following vaccinations:
Rabies, Distemper combo, and Bordetella
We can also discuss non-core vaccines that are more relative to your lifestyle: Leptospirosis and Lyme
We can again discuss lifestyle vaccines such as the Leukemia
