See Your Vet in Georgetown, OH, for Pet Vaccinations
Your pet should receive vaccinations just as humans do. Our veterinarian staff will take the time to explain the vaccines needed for your pet and give you the schedule and stage when each vaccine should be taken.
Vaccines are preventatives that protect people and animals from diseases that are prevalent to a species. Our vet will also break down the two types of vaccines for your pet. These are the core vaccines and the non-core vaccines. Core vaccines are those recommended for all pets, while non-core vaccines are those that are advised because of the lifestyle of a pet.
The non-core vaccines are mostly for dogs or cats that are boarded often or are outside most of the time. Vaccinations can begin for your pet as early as six weeks of age. We will work with you to devise the best schedule for your pet.
There are at least 11 different diseases that your dog will need to be vaccinated for beginning at six weeks of age. This includes rabies, parvovirus, distemper, adenovirus, animal hepatitis types one and two, parainfluenza, and Bordetella, just to name a few.
Cats have at least six vaccines it’s recommended they take. These vaccines will prevent rabies, feline distemper, feline herpesvirus, calicivirus, feline leukemia virus, and Bordetella.
It is vital to the quality of life for your pet to have them vaccinated on schedule. Our veterinarians and experienced team treat your pets as if they were our own.
