Vaccination against common infectious diseases is critical for our pets’ health as well as our community health. Every pet should have his or her lifestyle evaluated, and the appropriate vaccinations administered at appropriate intervals.
Please note that vaccines generally will not be given to sick pets. We know it’s inconvenient to bring a pet in multiple times, however vaccinating an already sick pet is likely to make them feel worse, and can lead to worsening of ongoing sickness. For this reason, we try not to schedule “annuals” or vaccine appointments when you have a significant medical concern.
The vet will consider your pet’s lifestyle and risk, and advise you of the vaccines needed to ensure your loved one stays as healthy as possible. Other than rabies, no other vaccinations are required by law, but there are some–known as “core vaccines”–that we may strongly recommend for your pet’s health and safety. We are happy to discuss the risks and benefits of any vaccine. For instance, we may opt to reduce vaccinations in elderly pets, especially cats.
Puppies will receive a series of vaccines, which will continue until they are about 16 weeks old, depending on when they start.
Dogs – Non-Core But Recommended Vaccines:
Kittens receive a series of boosters until they are about 16 weeks old, depending on when they start.
