How often does my pet need to be vaccinated?

Vaccination schedules can vary based on the vaccine, age, and health of your pet. Typically, after the initial series, core vaccines are administered annually or every three years. We will provide a schedule tailored to your pet’s needs.

Are vaccinations safe for my pet?

Yes, vaccinations are safe. The benefits of vaccinations far outweigh the risks. However, like any medical treatment, there can be side effects. Our veterinary team will discuss these with you and monitor your pet closely.

Can indoor pets skip vaccinations?

Even indoor pets are at risk for diseases that can be prevented by vaccinations. Some diseases are airborne, and others can be carried into the home on clothing or shoes.

What is the best age to start vaccinating my pet?

Puppies and kittens usually start their vaccination series between 6 to 8 weeks (about 2 months) of age. However, it’s never too late to start. We can provide a catch-up schedule for older pets.

Why are core vaccinations important?

Core vaccinations protect against diseases that are most common, highly contagious, or potentially fatal. Vaccinating your pet helps ensure they live a long, healthy life.
