Vaccinations are a serious concern for all pet owners. Despite this, very few people have their animals vaccinated outside of their formative years. At Boca Village Animal Hospital we create a customized vaccination plan, no matter how old the animal is.
Dog and Cat Immunizations plan that we put into place is completely unique to your pet. We take into consideration the age of the animal, the general lifestyle they are leading, their current health condition and how much exposure they are getting to other animals. With this knowledge we will be able to advise you on the various vaccinations that may be needed, and of course how regularly we will need to carry out the injections.
For most dogs we will recommend a yearly vaccination against the most common of illnesses including rabies, distemper, parvo, bordetella and influenza. If we are dealing with a cat then we will recommend a yearly vaccination against rabies, distemper and feline leukemia. Although, we will of course tailor those vaccinations depending on the general health condition of the animal.
One of the biggest benefits of having a tailor made vaccination plan is that you can be sure that your pet is properly protected against some of the most common diseases which are transmitted easily, no matter what environment you live in. Remember, as with anything, protecting an animal against a disease with vaccinations is going to be considerably better than trying to administer a cure. In some cases, the illnesses listed above could be life threatening for your animal.
As Veterinarians, we understand how uncomfortable some pets can get when vaccinations are administered. Rest assured, when you visit us with your pet, they will be in the safest possible hands and we will make it a top priority to ensure that your pet is comfortable throughout the whole procedure.
Why not make an appointment with one of our staff at the Boca Village Animal Hospital today to discuss your pet's vaccination needs? It could potentially be one of the best decisions that you have ever had to make for your animal.
