Protect your furry friends with pet vaccinations.
Any pet owner knows that pets are more than just animals; they are an important part of our families. When we decide to get a pet, we are taking on the responsibility of providing them with the food, water, shelter, love, and medical attention they need.
One of the most significant aspects of ensuring your pet lives the best life possible is keeping them up to date on their vaccinations. Pet vaccinations, like human vaccinations, protect your pets from infectious diseases that can be fatal. At Plaza Veterinary Hospital, we can help you keep your pet on the appropriate vaccination schedule to help them live long and healthy lives.
Pet vaccinations are preventative measures that you can use to protect your pet from infectious diseases. Like human vaccines, pet vaccines expose the animal’s immune system to a small amount of a disease, such as rabies, which helps them build their immunity. Pet vaccinations are usually administered as injections, but some can be given orally or through the nose.
Timing is essential when it comes to pet vaccinations. Puppies and kittens should get their first set of vaccinations when they are 6 to 8 weeks old, with boosters given every 3 to 4 weeks until they are 16 weeks old. After that, you should schedule them for yearly pet vaccinations to ensure their continued protection. If you have an adult pet and aren’t sure of their vaccination history, they should be scheduled for their first round as soon as possible and then get yearly updates.
