Mansfield Pet Vaccinations
Disease Protection for Your Pet’s Health
Vaccinations both protect your pets from contracting disease and helps protect them from spreading disease. According to the ASPCA, vaccinations are one of the best things you can do for your pet to maintain a high quality of life. At Mira Lagos Animal Clinic, we believe it’s important to keep your pet’s vaccinations up to date. During every exam, we’ll take the time to speak with you about your pet’s health and recommend vaccines we think will benefit your pet.
If you have questions about the safety or efficacy of vaccines, please give us a call at (682) 319-0019. We can help you understand the importance of vaccines for your pet’s health.
Types of Vaccinations for Your Pet
Like everything else regarding your pet’s health, the Mansfield veterinarians at Mira Lagos Animal Clinic will carefully consider all of your pet’s health needs before recommending any vaccines for your pet. There are many factors to consider before we recommend a treatment, and vaccines are no different. We’ll ensure that your pet is getting exactly what they need to keep them safe and healthy.
One of the most important types of vaccines available for your pet are known as “core vaccinations.” These are vaccines that are considered universal for all pets because the diseases they prevent have a high degree of transmission or are considered severe. Dogs and cats have different kinds of core vaccinations.
Core vaccinations for dogs include:
While core vaccinations for cats are:
- Herpes virus type I
All of the above vaccines are an important part of standard healthcare for your pet. Our Mansfield veterinarians might recommend other “non-core” vaccines which are not included on the list above, which may also be beneficial to your pet.
Are Vaccines Safe?
Yes! Much like vaccines for humans, vaccines for pets are rigorously tested before being admitted to the broader population. There are diseases, like distemper, which still exist, though at much lower levels than before. The reason these diseases are less common is because of regular vaccinations; with more pets protected against these diseases, the less it is passed around. Remember: you are not only protecting your pet, but the pets of other families in our local communities.
It is possible that your pet may react to a vaccination. Common reactions are soreness or swelling. Less common reactions include fever or inflammation. Our veterinary team will take your pet’s unique health needs into account before they recommend any vaccine regimen. Everything we recommend for your pet is in the best interest of their long-term health. We want your pet to live long, happy lives, and vaccines can help improve their quality of life dramatically.
If you have questions about any of our vaccine recommendations, please don’t hesitate to call us at (682) 319-0019. We’ll make sure you’re comfortable with every treatment we give your pet.
