At Jane Animal Hospital, our Toronto veterinarian takes great pride in the many services we offer for pets of all sizes, types, and ages. As part of our preventative care services, we are happy to offer vaccinations to ensure that your pet is up-to-date. When was the last time your pet was vaccinated? If it's been awhile or if you're not sure whether your pet is up-to-date on vaccines, now is a great time to schedule an appointment with our veterinary team.
Why Are Pet Vaccinations So Important?
You may be wondering, "why is it so important to keep my pet's vaccinations up-to-date?" Many owners of indoor pets, such as cats, ask this question. They may feel that their indoor pet is safe from the risk of many illnesses and viruses, but this unfortunately isn't true. While indoor pets may be at a reduced risk, there is no sure way to protect a pet from viruses and diseases aside from having them vaccinated. There is higher exposure for pets that spend any amount of time outdoors, as this increases their risk of contracting a serious or even fatal disease.
By keeping your pet updated on all recommended vaccinations, you can enjoy the peace of mind in knowing that you're doing everything in your power to protect your pet's health. Furthermore, you can know that you're protecting your family from diseases and viruses that can be passed on from pets to humans, such as rabies.
Which Vaccinations Do Your Pet Need?
A lot of times, pet owners aren't sure which vaccinations their pets need, and this confusion keeps them from having their pets vaccinated altogether. At Jane Animal Hospital, we make it easy to get your pet up-to-date on those vaccines, even if it's been years since your pet's last vet appointment. If you have vet paperwork from your pet's last visit, we recommend that you bring this in during your appointment, as it can help us determine which vaccines your pet needs. We can also determine vaccination needs based on your pet's breed and age. For example, kittens and puppies may need more core vaccines than adult pets, though even adult pets will generally need a rabies vaccine and other vaccinations based on their breed and risk factors.
