Pet vaccinations provide safe and effective preventive care for your pet. Davis Animal Hospital provides vaccination services for dogs and cats of all ages. Vaccines are available for many diseases, and our goal is to protect pets against severe illness and help them live long and healthy lives.
Pet Vaccinations: Risks and Rewards
By customizing a vaccine plan for your pet, we can protect him or her against harmful and potentially deadly diseases. To find the balance between thoroughly protecting your pet and over-vaccination, we consider many individual factors. While certain vaccines are required by law, there are many others that may be administered based on age, risk exposure, and lifestyle.
Common Canine Vaccines
We will carefully review your dog’s exposure risks and recommend a tailored vaccination plan. Common vaccines for dogs include:
Common Feline Vaccines
Protecting your cat is an important element of his or her healthcare. Indoor cats also benefit from vaccinations. Your pet’s vaccination program will be based on lifestyle and individual risks. Common vaccines for cats include:
- Feline leukemia
Puppy and Kitten Vaccinations
We recommend your new puppy or kitten begin a protective vaccination schedule at approximately 6 weeks of age. Your puppy or kitten will receive appropriate vaccinations in a series of visits conducted over several weeks.
Pet Preventive Care Exams
We recommend regular preventive care exams for pets of all ages. Your pet’s exam provides an opportunity to review your pet’s vaccination needs. We can provide appropriate boosters and identity any additional vaccines based on changes in health, lifestyle, or exposure risk.
We are happy to answer any of your questions regarding vaccine safety and the protection they can provide. Please contact us to schedule an appointment.
