Core Canine and Feline Vaccinations
Vaccines for your dog or cat are an important part of helping him or her to stay healthy. No matter what lifestyle your pets enjoy, protecting them from disease is a top priority. Although there are many vaccines for pets, there are essentials every pet must have and these are available at our veterinary clinic in New York City.
Pet Vaccines Explained
Dogs and cats need vaccines to help protect them from various life-threatening diseases. These vaccines are broken down into two types: core and non-core. Core vaccines protect against common diseases, infections, viruses, and parasites that your cat or dog is likely to encounter, as well as any vaccines that are mandated by the state, such as the rabies vaccine. Non-core vaccines protect against ailments that the average pet is unlikely to encounter and should be given to your pet based on the lifestyle that your cat or dog enjoys. A veterinarian will work with you to decide what vaccines are right for your pet.
Symptoms related to vaccines are generally mild, but can occur. If your pets experiences a lack of appetite, gastrointestinal distress, obsessive itchiness, lethargy, or unconsciousness following a round of vaccinations, do not hesitate in bringing them back to a veterinarian.
Preventative Care Is Often More Reliable than Treating Full-Blown Illnesses
