If you want your furry friend to have optimum health and would like to keep them around for years to come, one of the best things you can do for your pet gets them vaccinated.

Whether it's a dog vaccination or a cat vaccination, our veterinarian can help. If you have a new puppy or kitty, it's important that you keep them on a vaccination schedule. Kittens should start their first round of vaccinations between 6 and 7 weeks of age. Their vaccinations will have to be repeated every two to three weeks until they are about four months old. For puppies, their vaccinations normally begin at about 8 weeks of age and they will continue to get vaccinations until about four months of age.

Benefits of Updated Vaccinations

As your pet gets older, they will have to get booster shots. This is due to the fact that the immunity of some vaccines eventually begin to wear off over time. When this happens, your pet is at an increased risk of getting certain diseases. Some core vaccinations need to be given every three years. Depending on where you live, the rabies vaccinations may have to be given once a year. Our veterinarian can help you set up an appropriate vaccination schedule for your pet and ensure all vaccinations are updated as needed.
