From your first visit to Critter Care Veterinary Clinic, we’ll ensure that your pet is up to date on their vaccinations and put them on a plan to ensure that they continue to be up to date.
There are a variety of diseases that affect our pets and other animals. This makes proper vaccination vital in protecting them from the many illnesses they are susceptible to. It’s essential to consult with us about the unique risks of living in our region. We will be happy to discuss the benefits of protecting your pet with vaccinations, as well as, provide you with information on the required vaccinations for your pet.
Vaccines work by injecting an antigen (a small bit or component of the illness) into the body, which stimulates the immune system to make antibodies, the body’s defenders. If your pet is older than four months and has never received vaccines, it will take two shots three to four weeks apart to establish a strong enough army of antibodies to fight that disease for a whole year.
To maintain the health of your pet’s immune system after the initial vaccination series, vaccinations are given every one to three years, depending on the vaccine.
