Which Vaccines Does My Pet Need?

Dogs and cats each have their own specific vaccines, formulated to give them safe, reliable protection from disease. Our clinic offers a variety of essential, or core, vaccines, and lifestyle/risk-based vaccines. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to your pet’s care. We determine which vaccines they require by reviewing your pet’s medical history, understanding their current condition, and learning about their environment and lifestyle. This information tells us which vaccines are most essential to your pet’s health and protection.

The vaccines we offer include:

How Early Do Dogs and Cats Need to Be Vaccinated?

Cat and dog vaccinations can be administered to healthy pets as young as 6-8 weeks old. Since puppies and kittens are vulnerable to infection and no longer receiving antibodies from their mothers, they need the protection of booster shots to minimize their health risks.

To avoid over-vaccinating dogs and cats, we wait 3-4 weeks between booster shots. We also space out boosters for smaller dogs and cats. While we want to make sure your pet is sufficiently protected with their vaccines, we also want to prevent vaccine reactions. Spreading out booster shots and giving pets the vaccines they absolutely need, and no more, helps to improve the safety and effectiveness of the vaccines.
