The Importance of Vaccinating Your Pets

Pet vaccinations are a routine part of pet health care. At All Creatures Hospital, our veterinarians can help you create a vaccination schedule for your pet. Vaccinations are necessary and protect pets against serious health issues. If you live in Del Mar, Carmel Valley, or the surrounding areas, contact our team at All Creatures Hospital today to schedule an appointment with one of our veterinarians.

Some Pet Vaccinations Are Required

Pet vaccinations are a critical step in health care and some vaccinations are required by law. They protect pets from a number of serious and fatal illnesses. All cats and dogs need vaccinations, even those that are not outdoor animals. These are the core vaccines for both cats and dogs:

Core Dog Vaccines

  • Rabies (legal requirement)
  • Parainfluenza
  • Distemper
  • Hepatitis
  • Parvo Virus
  • Leptospirosis (recommended based on the dog's lifestyle)
  • Canine Influenza Virus (recommended based on the dog's lifestyle)
  • Bordatella (recommended based on the dog's lifestyle)

Core Feline Vaccines

  • Rabies (legal requirement)
  • Feline calicivirus
  • Feline rhinotracheitis
  • Panleukopenia

Booster Vaccinations for Cats and Dogs

In addition to these vaccinations, your pet needs booster shots throughout its lifetime. Our veterinarians will set up a schedule to make sure your pet is properly protected against these dangerous diseases. When you talk about vaccinations with our veterinarians, we will help you arrange a vaccination schedule for your cat or dog. Some vaccinations are not required but could be a good idea depending on your pet’s breed and lifestyle.
