What Is a Pet Vaccination?
A pet vaccination, like a human vaccination, is a type of injection that is administered to your pet. This injectable contains an inactive version of a disease, such as virus, that is given to your pet through an injection.
This allows antibodies to build up inside of your pet that can fight against diseases. When your pet is exposed to a certain disease, they will have mild symptoms or no symptoms at all and stay immune to the disease.
Diseases that can be prevented with pet vaccinations include parvovirus, Lyme disease, canine influenza, distemper, Leptospirosis, rabies, and feline herpes just to name a few.
How Does Visiting a Veterinarian Help My Pet?
A veterinarian on our team will know the right time to administer a pet vaccination. Many vaccinations need to be spaced out to prevent complications. Pet vaccines will also need to be administered according to your pet’s age.
Vaccines should also be administered under a watchful eye. Some pets might have an allergic reaction to the vaccine. A veterinarian at on our veterinary team can monitor your pet after administering the vaccine, so they can help administer medication to reverse this allergic reaction if it occurs. One of our veterinarians can also conduct other preventative care to keep your pet healthy such as a physical exam from the nose to tail of your pet.
