Proper vaccination can create a healthier, happier life for your pet free from the worry of preventable illnesses. Some vaccinations, like rabies, are required by state or local law, but many other dangerous diseases that threaten dogs and cats are preventable with the right treatment.

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, common diseases for administration of vaccinations and preventative treatment include rabies, “parvo”, “kennel cough”, heartworm, and other intestinal parasites, (some of which can also infect people). Some bacterial diseases require annual vaccination for efficacy, but most “core” vaccines have a less frequent revaccination schedule. 

The staff at Back on Track Veterinary Hospital and Rehabilitation Center will work to customize vaccine protocols based on a number of factors including the lifestyle and age of your pet, as well as potential exposure to a variety of diseases. Schedule an appointment to develop a plan.
