Pet Care

Owning and caring for a family pet doesn’t have to be a difficult or burdensome experience.

Immunization/Vaccination

Prevention of infectious diseases is one of the most important steps you can take to maintain your pet's health. Infectious diseases are caused by microscopic organisms such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Animals can contract these diseases from other animals, people, or the environment. If your pet's immune system does not prevent an infection and it is left untreated, serious complications may occur including death. Luckily, through research and scientific development, vaccines have been developed to help protect animals against many diseases.

When vaccines are injected into the body they stimulate the immune system to produce antibodies. Vaccines try to prepare the immune system to fight certain diseases. While it is not possible to vaccinate for every possible infectious disease, vaccines have been developed towards preventing the most common and serious ones. You will read about the different diseases we vaccinate for and then we will tailor a vaccination schedule specific to your pet.
