Vaccines for Dogs and Cats

What are vaccines for pets?

Vaccines are medications that interact with the body’s immune system. They are very important but are not risk free. For this reason, we perform a thorough physical exam and ask detailed background questions to assure our patients are healthy enough to receive vaccinations.

Your pet’s lifestyle helps determine the best vaccines for them.

Legally, veterinarians must have a current relationship (physical exam) with each pet to prescribe any medication or administer vaccines.
 Many vaccines are available, but generally, only a few are recommended for each pet. Vaccine recommendations are based on the lifestyle of each individual.

Vaccines for Pets Varies on Lifestyle

While every dog and cat is required to be vaccinated against rabies, not every pet needs to be vaccinated against leptospirosis, a more uncommon disease transmitted in the urine of infected wildlife such as deer, raccoon, and beavers.

A city-dwelling Chihuahua may have different exposure risks than a Labrador that hikes and camps with the family. We tailor pet vaccine protocols based on these lifestyles.

Effective Vaccinations for Pets

Not all vaccines are created equal.

Vaccines are quite sensitive and must be handled very carefully.

For example, they are highly susceptible to damage from fluctuating temperatures.

For this reason, we encourage owners to stick with vaccines from their veterinarians. Other stores may not even be aware that their vaccines are damaged or may not work at all.
