At Yellow Dog Veterinary Clinic, we know pets aren’t just companions; they’re beloved family members, so they deserve the very best care possible. That’s why we place such a strong emphasis on preventative pet care. We want your furry friend to live a very long, happy, and disease-free life. To accomplish that goal, your dog or cat will need to receive regular pet vaccinations.
Why You Should Vaccinate Your Pet
Vaccinations have proven to offer effective disease protection; they’re specifically designed to prevent illnesses that commonly affect pets. Vaccines contain antigens, which are similar in structure to disease-causing organisms. These antigens stimulate the body’s immune system and cause a mild immune response, but they don’t cause illness.
Then, if your pet is exposed to the actual illness at some point later in life, their immune system will be able to better recognize the intruder and fight it off. Getting your pet fully vaccinated can offer vital protection, keeping your pet healthier for the duration of their life.
Vaccines We Offer
We include a thorough and customized disease prevention plan as part of our pet care services. Your pet’s vaccination needs are determined by factors such as their age, breed, and lifestyle. One lifestyle vaccine, for instance, is the Lyme vaccine, which protects pets who accompany their owner during hikes in wooded areas where disease-carrying ticks are known to inhabit. After we examine your pet and ask questions to determine their healthcare requirements, we will then recommend a personalized vaccination schedule.
We carry a wide variety of vaccines to meet your pet’s every vaccination need. We even supply ULTRA vaccines for feline leukemia, feline distemper, canine distemper, and canine leptospirosis. These vaccines contain 50% less volume than standard vaccines, offering a more comfortable injection for your pet.
If you’d like to make an appointment or if have any questions about pet vaccines, feel free to contact us. We can easily be reached by phone or e-mail. We look forward to working with you to meet your pet’s healthcare needs!
