Berkeley veterinarian provides pet vaccinations.jpgVaccinations protect your pets from infections and diseases that could make them very ill or even prove to be deadly. There are generally two types of vaccines available here at University Vet Hospital. Core vaccines are generally recommended for most pets while non-core vaccines are reserved for pets that have special needs. Talk with our veterinarian to find out the vaccination program that will keep your pet at his healthiest.

Types and Schedules of Vaccines at Our Pet Hospital

At our pet hospital, we recognize that all pets have different health needs. The frequency of a vaccination may vary depending on the type of pet you have and your pet's age. If you have any questions about what vaccinations are right for your pets, be sure to bring them up at your pet's next visit to our Berkeley veterinarian. Even though many diseases that affect pets have been greatly reduced since the introduction of vaccines, it is still important that you vaccinate your pets, just in case.

The state of California has some requirements when it comes to vaccinating pets. Dogs need to be vaccinated against rabies. In some counties, vaccination for cats is required as well. Other common vaccines for pets include vaccines for feline leukemia and canine parvovirus. Speak with someone at our veterinary hospital about the timing and dosage of these vaccines. Generally speaking, most pets receive vaccines yearly for optimal protection.

Vaccination Risks

Although vaccines are a necessary part of your pet's health plan, there are a few risks involved. Your pet may suffer allergies from ingredients in the vaccine. An allergic reaction can be very serious. If your pet struggles to breathe or collapses, or begins to vomit after a vaccine, contact our hospital right away.
