People are not the only beings that need protection from infectious diseases. Your pet dog or cat can also get sick from viruses that pass from one animal to another. Even if your pet does not go outside, it is still a good idea to get it vaccinated. Vaccinations could prevent your pet from getting a serious or deadly illness. Pets that are vaccinated enjoy a longer lifespan and a better quality of life.
Some pet vaccines need to be repeated once each year. Other vaccines need to be done every three years. If you are unsure of whether or not your pet is due for vaccines, we can take a look at its medical record and let you know. If you are new to the area or have switched to our veterinary practice recently, we can get your pet’s veterinary records and let you know which shots they need.
We understand that pets might get scared or anxious during a visit to the vet. Our veterinarians and assistants keep your pet calm. We gently touch your pet and help keep it comfortable. Getting your pet vaccinated is a quick process, and your pet gets to go home after receiving shots. We recommend allowing your pet to take a nap or relax for the rest of the day. A casual walk or some light activity is okay after getting pet vaccinations in Harwood Heights.
