Pet Vaccinations Keep Animals Disease-Free and Healthy
Did you know that vaccines can help pets just as much as they help humans? In fact, our pets are living longer than ever before, and that is due in part to pet vaccinations, which we highly recommend for our patients at Limerick Veterinary Hospital. Our veterinarians work with pets on the individual level to customize a vaccination protocol that abides by AAHA standards and meets their most important health needs.
Vaccines are an essential form of treatment because they give pets immunity to various diseases. To maintain a sufficient level of immunity, your pet needs to be vaccinated on a routine basis. See our list of dog and cat vaccines below.
Our Pet vaccines
Dogs and cats can both be vulnerable to viral diseases, even if they rarely set foot outside. Pet vaccinations act as a safeguard against future infections and save you and your pet the trouble of going through stressful treatments. We recommend the following vaccines for our patients:
- Bivalent influenza
- Purvax Rabies (offer 1-year and 3-year)
Choosing Vaccines for Your Pet
Determining which vaccines your pet will need to stay healthy depends on multiple factors such as breed, size, other animals in the home, health history, frequency of travel, risk of exposure and general lifestyle. Vaccinating your pet allows us to be proactive about protecting them and keeping them healthy and active for as long as possible.
New puppies and kittens should receive their first vaccinations between 6-8 weeks of age, so that we can administer the proper boosters to build their immunity and provide the highest level of protection. Your veterinarian will be happy to explain the steps to you so that you fully understand what vaccines your pet needs, and why.
