What Is a Pet Vaccination?

A pet vaccination is also known as a pet vaccine. Pet vaccines can help prevent disease from affecting your pet. Vaccines make your cat or dog immune to certain diseases, meaning they might meet a disease but won't suffer from serious side effects. These pet diseases that can be prevented using a vaccine include:

  • Parvovirus
  • Rabbies
  • Distemper
  • Influenza
  • Lyme disease
  • "Kennel Cough"
  • Herpes

It's important to understand that vaccines are not a treatment for diseases, but they can help prevent them. As such, it's important to have your pet visit our veterinarian and get her vaccine as soon as possible to prevent these diseases from being fatal to them.

How Our Veterinarian Can Help

Our veterinarian will be able to answer any questions you have about vaccination for your cat or dog. They will administer vaccines to your cat or dog in a harmless manner. Vaccinations, when administered properly, do not cause pain to your cat or dog, and are usually placed in between the shoulder blades to prevent your pet from reaching the site of the vaccine.

After our vet administers a vaccination, she will monitor your pet for any signs of symptoms of an allergic reaction or discomfort. She does this to ensure that your pet does not have any adverse reactions and can continue to take additional recommended vaccines.
