Pet Vaccination FAQ’s: Answering Your Most Pressing Questions

Without protection from vaccinations, dogs and cats can catch a host of serious diseases from surfaces or animals in the local environment. You can give your pet a dose of protection by following the full vaccination schedule starting in kitten- or puppy-hood. Read on to learn how you can protect your cat or dog.

Why should I vaccinate my pets?

Pet vaccinations protect your pets from serious diseases that are easily spread through the local environment. Even if your area does not have a problem with certain pet diseases, vaccinations help protect your pet from contracting a serious virus and provide you a peace of mind as you work hard to keep your pet in great health.

What vaccinations do pets need?

Dogs and cats require different vaccination formulas to remain protected from the worst diseases for each species. Dogs often receive a six or seven in one combination vaccination that protects against distemper, canine parainfluenza, and parvovirus. Cats also receive a combination vaccination to minimize the number of injections required to boost immunity to feline calicivirus, panleukopenia, and rabies.

When should my dog or cat receive vaccinations?

You can start the vaccination series in your pet’s earliest months to achieve full protection by six months of age. The vaccination series requires repeat visits for the administration of vaccinations on the given timeline. Your vet will provide information about the vaccination timeline that matches your pet’s exact needs.
