What Vaccines Do We Recommend for Dogs & Cats?
Below are the vaccines we recommend for pets, based on AAHA’s current guidelines. Core vaccines are considered essential for every pet, while additional vaccines can be given based on your pet’s lifestyle and risk of exposure to certain pathogens.
Why We Personalize Your Pet’s Vaccinations
One size does not fit all, and your pet’s health benefits most from a personally tailored vaccination protocol. Giving your pet more vaccines than they need can put their health at risk. We are also aware that some dogs and cats may have medical reasons for not taking a certain vaccine. Our doctors conduct a thorough examination of your pet and review their health and medical history before recommending or administering any vaccines.
Giving your dog or cat the vaccines they need, and no more, ensures they have the fullest protection possible without the risk of over-vaccination.
