Pet vaccinations are one of the best forms of preventative care to give your pet. Unfortunately, many pet owners do not understand how critical and beneficial pet vaccinations are. At Fleur Pet Hospital, our Des Moise vet is dedicated to helping your pet feel its best and providing the best preventative care available. Our animal hospital wants to help protect your cat or dog against diseases that can be fatal and dangerous. With the help of vaccinations and routine pet care, you can rest assured your pet will be protected from these diseases and extend its lifespan!
What Are Pet Vaccinations?
Pet vaccinations are similar to human vaccines. These are injectable vaccines that prevent various types of diseases in your cat or dog. Vaccinations are administered by trained veterinary staff at an animal hospital, and they can prevent diseases from infecting your pet, such as:
- Canine Distemper
- Canine adenovirus
- Canine influenza
- Feline distemper
- Feline calicivirus
- Feline herpesvirus
It's important to note that vaccinations for your pet can only help prevent or reduce the strength of these diseases on your pet. However, they cannot cure or be effective treatments once your pet is already sick. Therefore, it's best to initiate preventative care for your pet through vaccination as soon as possible.
How Can a Des Moines Vet Help My Pet?
Your pet will require certain vaccinations depending on hold old they are, any previous genetic history, and other factors. Our vet will determine if any additional veterinary care is needed for your pet besides vaccinations.
We will administer vaccinations and monitor your pet for any adverse side effects. Our vet will also conduct a physical exam and other preventative care in addition to vaccines, such as flea and tick prevention and bloodwork, so your pet can get the best well-rounded care. Vaccinations are just one of the many treatments and services a veterinary specialist can provide for your cat or dog.
