Why You Should Keep Your Pets Vaccinations Up To Date

Pets are a part of the family and making sure that they are up to date can save their lives. Vaccinations are more than just a rabies shot every year. They are crucial safeguards against diseases that can kill them quickly.

Why Are Vaccinations Important?

Just like with children, vaccinations help protect your pets from every evolving diseases that can quickly attack their systems and kill them. Vaccinations contain a different combination of compounds each year to meet both the age requirements for your pet as well as the strains of certain diseases that might be prevalent that particular year or season. For those in the Summerfield area, The Animal Hospital at Lake Brandt can help you find the right schedule of vaccinations for your pet.

Vaccinations help to prevent diseases that are 100% avoidable and help your pets feel better and be safer overall. Vaccinations are generally for a host of diseases that are common among pets like rabies, parvo, distemper, and more. There are even flu vaccinations for pets! Taking the time to get your pets vaccinated is going to help keep your pet healthy, even if they are in kennels or closed spaces near pets that may be sick.

How Often Should You Vaccinate Pets?

Regular trips to the veterinarian include a once a year physical where your vet is going to be able to check your pet over and make sure there are no issues. During this once a year visit, your vet or animal hospital staff will make sure your pet is vaccinated properly and will make sure there are no issues with your pets. It is recommended that you get your pet vaccinated at least once a year and more often for some vaccinations. Your bet can better create a vaccination schedule for your pet to help make sure that they are happy and healthy and that they have a long life.

Feedback from our clients

  • "I have been taking my 16 year old lab, Oscar, to this vet since he came to me in 2004, and I wouldn't take any of my dogs anywhere else! They are so wonderful with both pets and people. I would recommend any of the doctors and staff to anyone."

  • "We have been going to another vet for years. We wanted to have our year old Wheaten Terrier, Rylee spayed by laparoscopy so she would have less pain and be back to her usual activity in 2-3 days instead of 10-14 days. Our vet does the traditional spay. We had a consult meet and greet with Dr. Courtney Pierce. She answered all our questions and so friendly and professional. They have a state of the art OR suite. Rylee did great. On post op day three she spotted a squirrel and did an all out chase with no ill effects! All the staff were great."

  • "I love Dr. Jernigan at AHLB and would never take my dog anywhere else! The staff is excellent with animals and always professional, courteous and respectful to owners. I have trusted this animal hospital for all of my dog's care, including check ups, surgeries (she's had three!) and for boarding when we have to go out of town. Every experience I have had here has been wonderful and I highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a veterinary office for their furry children!."
