Is your pet due for vaccines in the near future?
We believe in protecting your pet as best as possible without vaccinating unnecessarily. Therefore, we prefer to vaccinate with three-year vaccines whenever possible for both dogs and cats.
Many of the diseases that can affect dogs and cats are preventable through proper pet vaccinations. Starting your pet on the right schedule early is one of the keys to a long and healthy life. Vaccines are special proteins that prime the immune system to fight off specific infections. They work in two ways: to reduce the severity of such diseases should they strike or to completely prevent infection.
We understand that getting to your normal veterinarian during regular business hours can be difficult. We’re open late on weekdays and on weekends to ensure that your pet can get the vaccines they need on your schedule.
Why is this important?
There are several diseases that can afflict cats and dogs, but most pets can be protected from the worst of them if they are vaccinated properly. For dogs, these include parvovirus, distemper, and infectious hepatitis. For cats, these include panleukopaenia, feline herpesvirus, and feline calicivirus; for outdoor cats, protection can include feline immunodeficiency virus and feline leukemia virus.
Call us today to schedule a time to get your pet the vaccines they need. You can even start your pet’s schedule with us so they can get future vaccines when necessary.
