Vaccinating Your Pet

Getting your pet properly vaccinated is one of the best things that you can do for their health! Immunizations for your dog or cat can help fortify their immune system against infectious and sometimes life-threatening diseases.

Vaccines are an inexpensive, safe, and effective way to protect your dog or cat from a wide range of serious illnesses. With a personalized immunization schedule, your pet will be better equipped to fight off any exposure to diseases such as rabies, distemper, parvovirus, and influenza.

Can Vaccines Make Pets Sick?

Our animal hospital uses the safest and highest-quality vaccines on the market to keep adverse reactions to a minimum. However, some puppies and kittens might seem a bit lethargic the day after their first booster shots, which is normal.

For those rare pets that do experience an allergic reaction, we might opt to discontinue the vaccine responsible. If your pet is not acting like themselves after being vaccinated, let us know immediately.

Our Recommended Dog Vaccinations

In addition to optional immunizations (given based on your pet's risk level and lifestyle), there are certain vaccines that every dog needs. These core immunizations are essential to your dog's health.

Our recommended vaccines for dogs are include:

  • Rabies
  • Distemper
  • Hepatitis
  • Parvovirus
  • Parainfluenza
  • Leptospirosis
