Importance of Puppy Vaccinations

Vaccinations at an animal hospital are an important part of your pet's health care. Whether it is a puppy or an adult canine, adding a layer of protection to your pet's immune system with appropriate vaccinations can help promote a healthy life. From puppyhood to the time your pet friend enters his senior years, vaccinations can be a crucial step in maintaining a healthy plan of action.

When your pet comes in for a wellness examination and vaccinations, a veterinarian on our team will determine which vaccine is appropriate for your pet. This will be determined by different factors, such as your dog's overall health and age.

Dog Vaccination Types

There are two types of vaccinations for canines, including core vaccines and non-core vaccines. Core vaccines prevent disease. Non-core vaccines do not prevent your pet from contracting a disease but can help lower the risk of being infected and/or spreading the disease.

Age Schedule for Vaccinations

The exact age that your pet will be recommended his vaccinations may vary. Usually, the first round of vaccinations are given while the pet is still young but more may be given over the course of time depending on the vaccine and the veterinarian’s recommendations. If you have any questions, call our veterinary team and we will help you get the answers you are looking for.
