Pet Vaccinations Torrensville

As a pet parent, you are responsible for taking steps to ensure the long-term health and well-being of the animals in your care. Keeping up with vaccinations is an important part of this. Having your cats and dogs vaccinated is highly recommended as it safeguards them against a wide range of potentially deadly diseases. Vaccinations are highly effective, and they have a very low likelihood of causing side effects. Ideally, puppies and kittens should be first vaccinated with they are around 6 to 8 weeks old. They will need additional vaccinations over the course of the next several weeks. Once fully vaccinated, they will require boosters throughout their lives.

Dog and Puppy Vaccines

In dogs, vaccinations begin when a puppy is 6-8 weeks old. If you have an older dog that has not been vaccinated or has an undetermined vaccine status, though, we can begin vaccinations at any time. Dogs and puppies are vaccinated against distemper, parvovirus, hepatitis, Bordetella bronchiseptica, and parainfluenza, among others. Puppies are given their final vaccinations at 16 weeks of age, but dogs will continue to need boosters throughout their lives.

Cat and Kitten Vaccines

Like puppies, kittens usually receive their first vaccines when they are 6 to 8 weeks old. They receive a second round of shots when they are around 12 weeks old, and the final vaccinations are administered at 16 weeks of age. We consider several factors when determining which vaccines your cat needs, such as whether or not they go outside. Core feline vaccinations include feline calicivirus, feline herpesvirus, and feline parvovirus.
