Pet Vaccinations

Pet Vaccinations

Vaccinations are an integral part of preventative medicine, as they protect pets against a variety of serious and potentially-fatal viruses and diseases. These include Rabies, Distemper, Parvovirus, Leptosporosis, and Feline Leukemia, to name a few. Ideally, all pets should begin receiving vaccinations when they are puppies/kittens and continue annually into their senior years.

Personalized Vaccination Schedules

We believe in the power of personalized medicine, which is why we customize our vaccination protocols for each of our patients. Specific vaccine schedules and recommendations are based on a variety of factors, including your pet’s:

When you bring your pet in for their preventative wellness visit, our doctor will discuss these recommendations with you before determining a vaccination protocol designed to meet your pet’s needs. Feel free to talk to our staff if you have any questions about your pet’s vaccination requirements. We believe that well-educated pet owners are the best pet owners, so we’re happy to speak with you about your concerns.

Canine Influenza Vaccine

Canine influenza (CIV) is a highly contagious virus that has recently broken out here in Florida, and has been spreading throughout other parts of the country. We recommend that dog owners have their loved ones vaccinated to protect them from this virus. Our canine flu vaccines provide immunity from both the H3N2 and H3N8 strains of CIV. Symptoms of this virus include sneezing, persistent coughing, ocular and nasal discharge, and lethargy. If you see these signs in your pet, or would like to have them vaccinated, contact us immediately.

Does My Pet Really Need to Be Vaccinated?

Keeping your pet current on their vaccinations is a necessary step to protecting them from contagious diseases. We want you and your pet to enjoy a long, happy, and healthy life together.

Pet vaccines have proven to be an effective way to protect pets from potentially fatal illnesses. Vaccines contain antigens, which are similar in structure to disease-causing organisms. These antigens prompt response from your pet’s immune system without making your pet sick. If your pet encounters the disease, their immune system will be better prepared to recognize and fight off the contagion.

If you’re ready to make an appointment, or if you’d like more information on having your pet vaccinated, we invite you to contact us today. We can be reached by phone at 954-565-1896 or via e-mail at info@arborpethospital.com. We hope to hear from you soon!
