Welcome to Forest Hills Veterinary Clinic
Providing vaccinations to pets helps them activate their immune responses and prepares them to combat disease-causing pathogens in the future. Learn more below.
At your pet’s wellness exam, annual immunizations will be administered according to your pet’s vaccination schedule. Vaccinations for puppies and kittens, as well as booster vaccinations for older dogs and cats, are critical to ensuring that your pet lives a long and happy life. Vaccinating your pet regularly throughout their lives will assist in protecting them from a variety of dangerous, potentially fatal diseases and ailments.
All pets require core vaccines because of the risk of exposure, the severity of disease, or human transmission.
Canine parvovirus, distemper, canine hepatitis, and rabies vaccines are considered basic vaccines for dogs. Non-core vaccines are provided based on the dog’s risk of exposure. Vaccines for Bordetella bronchiseptica, Borrelia burgdorferi, and Leptospira bacteria are among them.
Core vaccines include those for panleukopenia (feline distemper), feline calicivirus, feline herpesvirus type I (rhinotracheitis), and rabies. Non-core vaccines, such as those for feline leukemia virus, Bordetella, Chlamydophila felis, and feline immunodeficiency virus, are administered depending on the cat’s lifestyle.
Our veterinarians can determine what vaccines are best for your pets.
