The Importance of Pet Vaccinations in Germantown
At Forest Hill Animal Hospital, our veterinarians stress the importance of preventative wellness, including pet vaccinations in Germantown for all of our clients' pets. Vaccinations not only prevent your pets from contracting several dangerous diseases, they also help pet owners avoid costly treatments and potentially becoming ill by catching a zoonotic disease from their cat or dog. In addition, certain vaccinations, such as the rabies vaccine, are required by law to be administered to domestic animals. We encourage all pet owners to take action early by safeguarding the health and well-being of their pets with preventative care such as vaccinations.
How to Select Germantown Pet Vaccinations
Germantown pet vaccinations are separated into two categories: core and non-core vaccines. Core vaccines include those which are required by law and also vaccines which will protect your dog or cat from the most common, dangerous, and/or contagious diseases. Depending on your pet's lifestyle, environment, and potential exposure to other animals (both domestic and wild), our veterinarian will help you select which vaccinations your pet should absolutely have.
During your puppy or kitten's first appointment, our veterinarians will work with you to establish a schedule of your pet's first vaccinations and booster shots. Some vaccines will require your pet to have boosters throughout his or her life to ensure the efficacy of the treatment.
