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 Herndon

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 Herndon Animal Medical Center today about how to get your pet off to the start of a long and healthy life!

Testimnial Quote
Our cats past and present have been patients at this practice for a total of nearly 30 years. Our two cats Newt and Ripley lived 22 and 18 years respectively and even tested positive for feline leukemia when we found them as tiny kittens. The doctors, techs, and staff have never once let us down in both simple and complicated situations, emergencies and non. My next pair of tiny kittens who are now 7-years-old, and a third kitten who showed up this past winter are patients here now. We have loved every veterinarian we've seen at Herndon Animal Medical Center. One of my cats is actually in love with Dr. Giaimuccio. He demands that she hold him in her arms and hug him! I highly recommend this place. The prices are competitive for this area (yes, pricey, but we live in Northern Virginia). We miss Dr. Barry and hope she is having a wonderful retirement.
