There are a variety of preventable diseases which can affect our pets, and vaccinations are an essential and inexpensive way to protect your animal family members. Some of those diseases are also zoonotic—meaning they can infect humans—so that makes getting your pet vaccinated (and keeping those vaccinations up to date) even more important!
It’s especially vital to administer vaccinations when pets are puppies and kittens because their young immune systems are still developing and there are some highly contagious diseases that can be life-threatening for them at such a young age. After that initial vaccine series, our veterinarians can advise you which vaccinations are required or recommended for your pet based on age, health, and lifestyle.
