    Staff was awesome, Dr Fred was awesome - even called later in the day to see how my cat was doing. The next day when I spoke with the Dr about my cats blood tests, he took the time to address any & all questions I had & didn't rush me off the phone. Very happy and will continue with this care facility for my cats.

More About Pet Vaccinations

Pet vaccines work just like human vaccines do. Antigens, which resemble a disease-causing organism, are administered to your pet. These cause your pet's immune system to react and build a defense without your pet having to be exposed to the actual disease. After a pet vaccination and with regular boosters, your pet is far less likely to get sick if he or she encounters the disease-causing pathogen at the dog park, in an encounter with a curious new animal or anywhere else.

Pet Vaccinations in Lake Forest

To make sure your pet has optimum protection, you need to abide by a recommended vaccine schedule. There are not only different vaccines for different diseases available, but also different combinations and types. Some vaccines are given once; others need boosters to stay effective. How often a booster is needed depends on the vaccine and factors that depend on your pet's lifestyle. We work to create a vaccine schedule that is customized to each pet to give him or her the appropriate level of protection.

Pet vaccines are usually divided into core and non-core vaccines. Cat and dog vaccinations that are considered core vaccines are recommended for every pet. Which non-core vaccinations are recommended will depend on your pet's lifestyle. For instance, a dog or cat that goes outdoors a lot or is frequently boarded will have different vaccination needs than one that is always indoors in a single-pet home. Whether your pet needs certain non-core vaccines will also depend on your pet's age, general level of health, medical history and other factors.

It's never too early to start thinking about vaccinations. Most vaccines can be given to pets who are young as six weeks. Talk to our friendly staff at El Toro Animal Hospital today about how to get your pet off to the start of a long and healthy life!
