Vaccines

Dogs and cats are just like humans - they need vaccinations to remain healthy and to keep potentially fatal diseases away. They also need boosters to keep the vaccines effective.

Many vaccines can be given to pets as young as 6 weeks old. Talk to your veterinarian about setting up the best vaccination schedule for your cat or dog.
