Clearbrook Animal Hospital Provides Pet Vaccinations
Has your family recently adopted a new puppy or kitten? It is important that dogs and cats begin receiving their vaccinations in the first 6-8 weeks of their lives. After their initial round of shots, they will require regular booster shots, typically every year depending on the type of vaccination that is administered by your veterinarian. The initial rounds of vaccinations are very important, and it is also essential for your pet to continue to get their immunity booster shots on a regular basis as recommended.
As our companion animals age, their immune systems can weaken thus making it more difficult to fight off disease, infection, and illness in their later years. Maintaining vaccinations is an important part of your pet's overall health and well-being and should not be overlooked! If your pet spends a significant amount of time at daycare or a boarding facility, or they enjoy a lot of interaction with other dogs and cats we may recommend that they receive vaccinations in addition to the core group.
Protect Your Pets from Worms, Fleas, and Other Illness by Keeping Their Shots Up to Date
In addition to effective preventative care to protect them from worms, fleas, and ticks, your pet will also need core vaccines and possibly some additional shots depending on the various activities in which they participate. If you have an indoor cat that does not interact with any other pets it is still important that they receive regular vaccinations as many of the conditions that they protect your cat from are naturally occurring. If you have any questions or concerns about vaccinations for your pet our staff will be able to fully address them at your pet's next wellness appointment.
