Vaccine FAQs

What are Pet Vaccinations?

Vaccines carry inside them dead or inactive versions of diseases, which are then injected into your pet's muscles or underneath the skin. They can help your pet create antibodies to protect them against certain diseases such as parvovirus, distemper, canine and feline herpes, rabies, and so much more. However, your pet won't have to suffer from the effects of the disease itself to be protected.

What if my Pet Doesn't Get Vaccinated?

It can be difficult to treat certain diseases, if not impossible, such as parvovirus and rabies. Therefore, it's critical to vaccinate your pet so they don't fall victim to the effects of these dangerous diseases. Not vaccinating your pet leaves them susceptible to getting ill.

Are Pet Vaccinations Dangerous?

Pet vaccinations can be safely administered with the help of a trained veterinarian. Your pet can receive them during a routine visit or at an animal hospital with the help of an emergency vet. Your pet does run the risk of having a negative allergic reaction to a vaccine, although this is quite rare. 

When Will my Pet Need Vaccinations?

Our vet will determine when to vaccinate your pet. Some pets might need vaccines as early as 6 to 12 weeks and might need to get repeated doses of vaccines to continue to be protected against these potentially fatal diseases.
