Professionally administered vaccinations will help protect your pet from many harmful and potentially fatal afflictions. Some of these include Parvovirus, Adenovirus, Parainfluenza Virus, Feline Leukemia, Canine Distemper, and Rabies. Pet vaccines are designed to prepare the animal’s immune system to respond and fight exposure to infection and disease.
As with any medical treatment, there is a low risk of side effects associated with vaccinations. The effectiveness though of vaccines to prevent the transmittal and spread of disease, supports their continued use. Vaccines are of particular importance to puppies and kittens since their immature immune systems are most vulnerable. The need for and frequency of vaccinations can vary depending on many factors to include species, age, exposure, and general health. The veterinarians here at Stoney Pointe Animal Hospital will be able to tailor a vaccination program based on your pet’s specific needs.
