There are countless conditions out there that can cause a pet's health to suffer. Thankfully, vaccinations are a trusted line of defense against conditions that in the past may have cost a pet their overall health or life. By offering core vaccines, along with non-core vaccines, we can safeguard against infectious condition, thereby keeping your pet, along with the rest of the pet community, safe and protected.
What works for one pet may not work for another, which is why over-vaccination is actively avoided in all of our patients through personalized vaccination plans. Our medical team is highly knowledgeable in disease prevention through vaccination, and we will work with you to devise a vaccination plan that is suitable to your pet's age, species, lifestyle, and health status.
Core vaccines are recommended for pets of all ages and lifestyle considerations.
Non-core vaccines are based on lifestyle factors, such as age, health status, and risk of exposure.
Like in human medicine, vaccines work by exposing the body to an extremely low-level of the disease-causing organism. Exposure is safe and controlled, allowing the immune system to form disease-fighting antigens that will be prepared the next time the body comes in contact with the condition in an uncontrolled setting, like their everyday environment.
If you have any questions about your pet's vaccine recommendations, or if you're unsure if your pet is current on his or her vaccines, please don't hesitate to ask! Simply give us a call, stop by our office during open business hours, or inquire during a scheduled visit.
