Let All Creatures Hospital Provide the Necessary Immunizations for Your Pet
Pet vaccinations are an effective, and often mandated, way to protect your furry friend from conditions such as rabies and distemper. If your canine spends a lot of time at doggy daycare or in dog parks, our vet may also recommend vaccinations for conditions such as leptospirosis that can be harmful and even fatal to your pet. Please also let us know if you are planning to travel with your pet, either domestically or internationally, or if you spend a lot of time in wooded areas.
Oftentimes, owners of our cat patients do not intend to vaccinate their felines especially when they are "indoor" cats. While we can understand the reasoning behind this behavior, we strongly advise that all pets receive appropriate vaccinations, even if they spend the majority of their time indoors. All Creatures Hospital is your comprehensive veterinarian in Del Mar and we look forward to caring for your family's companion animal.
Follow a Regular Vaccination Schedule to Avoid Confusion
During your pet's first year they will require an initial cycle of "core" vaccinations as well as any other that is appropriate for your dog's or cat's lifestyle and location. Our vet will discuss the timeline with you at your companion animal's initial pet wellness exam.
As your pet grows into adulthood they will need booster shots at regular intervals in order to keep their immunizations at an effective level. In their senior years, your furry friends may become more susceptible to certain ailments and in such cases, we will recommend further vaccinations such as a flu shot or immunization from leptospirosis.
Additional Vaccinations May be Necessary for Your Four-Legged Friend
Regular vet care is an important part of vaccination management, as there are certain situations that will require additional immunizations, such as travel to certain areas, interaction with wild animals, and frequent visits to wooded areas. Due to these concerns, it is important that you share all relevant information with your technician at every wellness appointment.
The entire staff at All Creatures is dedicated to the health and well-being of your pet, and we will do all that we can to provide the care and knowledge necessary for them to lead happy, full, and healthy lives for many years to come!
