At Bayshore Veterinary Hospital, we know the power of preventative care. Recent advances in veterinary medicine have demonstrated the importance of preventative care in maximizing lifelong health for pets. Having your pet fully vaccinated is one of the most vital steps you can take to improve their health and well-being. That’s why we offer comprehensive, personalized pet vaccinations to every one of our patients. We’ve made it our mission to safeguard pets by preventing potentially catastrophic diseases and to facilitate responsible ownership for our clients.
What You Need to Know About Pet Vaccinations
Vaccines are part of a comprehensive approach to preventative care that includes:
Vaccines are administered according to protocols established for use throughout the veterinary profession. At our facility, we apply those standards, taking into consideration each pet’s overall health, lifestyle, age, and more. We then adjust the recommended guidelines to specifically meet your pet’s individual needs.
Do Pets of Every Age Need to Be Vaccinated?
Pet vaccinations are extremely important for puppies and kittens who need to establish baseline health as they grow into adulthood. They’re moderately important for adult pets, depending on their lifestyle, and become less of a concern for senior pets who often lead a less active lifestyle.
Often, the focus shifts from prevention to surveillance for older pets, leading to a greater reliance on diagnostics. Since no two pets are exactly alike, a one-size-fits-all approach to prevention and treatment is not ideal. We prefer to evaluate on a case-by-case basis and adapt guidelines to the needs of each individual pet.
