Dog And Cat Vaccines

Your Pet Needs a Customized Vaccination Plan Tailored to their Needs

We at Companion Pet Care don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all vaccination plan. Every one of our patients is different in a number of ways and their vaccination plan should reflect that. The vaccination plan that our veterinarian will build for your pet will depend on several factors, including: your pet’s age, breed, size, medical history, lifestyle, environment, and current health condition.

Vaccines are one of the best ways to protect your pet against common diseases and illnesses. If your pet is interacting with other pets, it is especially important that your pet has the appropriate vaccine history. Most trainers, boarding facilities, and grooming professionals require that your pet is up-to-date with their vaccines to prevent the spreading of illness and disease to other pets.

Vaccines can prevent many diseases such as:

Side Effects

Different pets can react in different ways to every vaccine, sometimes causing a reaction or a side effect. These reactions and side effects are typically very mild and last anywhere from a few hours to a day. Such reactions can include muscle soreness and swollenness, low-grade fevers, and drowsiness.
More severe reactions include vomiting, swelling of the face, and hives, and these typically will become apparent a couple of hours after the vaccine is administered. If your pet is showing any of these symptoms, please call us right away. In most cases, all your pet needs to rid these side effects is an antihistamine.

Please call us today for more information about our vaccination plans, or to schedule an appointment with our veterinary team. Or for more information you can check AVMA’s Vaccination page or their Vaccination FAQs page.
