3 Reasons Your Dog Needs Pet Vaccinations

Here at The Animal Hospital at Lake Brandt, our Summerfield vet team believes that every puppy and dog should receive its full range of pet vaccinations in order to live a long and happy life, and we're happy to provide this preventive wellness service with convenience and affordability.

Wondering why we're such huge fan of safe, affordable, and effective pet vaccines? Read our key points below:

Should You Vaccinate Your Dog? 3 Reasons Why Our Vets in Summerfield Say YES!

1. Pet vaccinations protect your animal against preventable, and often life-threatening, illnesses.

Fleas, ticks, mosquitos, and other critters are notorious for carrying bacteria and parasites that can lead to uncomfortable and debilitating diseases. Sadly, some of these diseases can devolve into life-threatening situations. Since avoiding these environmental bugs is virtually impossible, the best way to protect your dog against them is to give her vaccinations that protect against the things they carry.

2. By protecting your pet, you're actually protecting other animals, and even people, in your community.

Most preventable diseases that affect canines can be transmitted to other unprotected dogs. Some diseases are even considered zoonotic, meaning that they can be transmitted from animal to human!

3. Preventive care is less costly (and far less stressful) than treatment!

Failing to vaccinate your dog is like taking a serious gamble on her health—and your wallet. The pain and stress of seeing your dog suffer are only intensified by the stress of paying for treatment of a disease that could have been prevented!

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!."
