Vaccines are one of the most parts of preventive veterinary care for your pet, and can help your pet live a longer, healthier life. Vaccines protect your pet from many deadly infectious diseases and have saved millions of pets’ lives and have nearly abolished some fatal diseases altogether. However, the threats that vaccines protect against are still prevalent, and without routine examinations and vaccinations, your pet can become infected, leading to a potentially fatal outcome.
We recommend vaccinations depending on the specific lifestyle, risk factors, and previous vaccine history of our patients, and understand that these variables change as your pet ages or travels. This leads to better veterinary care and fewer procedures. We create a specific vaccine program for every patient.
Our veterinarians are well-educated about vaccines and our goal is to provide the best options for care, gathering information from you and giving our recommended vaccine protocol. This protocol will help the overall health of your pet, prevent the risk to infectious diseases, and lead to a longer and healthier life for your pet.
Protecting your pet with vaccines is our primary goal, so call us at (209) 847 2257 to discuss your pet’s vaccination needs.
Some dog owners opt for titer tests before they administer annual shots. Titer tests measure a dog’s immunity levels, and this can determine which, if any, vaccinations are necessary. Please note that a titer test is not an option when it comes to the rabies vaccine. These are required by law (see above).
