Hazard Pet Vaccinations & Exams
At Town & Country Animal Clinic, we want your pet to live a long, healthy life, just as much as you do. That’s why we stress the importance of preventative care. Having your pet come in annually for a wellness exam is critical, as it allows our veterinary team to thoroughly check your pet for anything abnormal. Should anything be found, more testing can be performed, and something that could’ve had devastating effects on your pet can be treated. Bringing your pet to the vet annually could save you time and money on any complex or invasive procedures later down the road.
Another key component of our preventative care service at our clinic in Hazard is pet vaccinations. These are administered at different times of your dog or cat’s life, and vary depending on lifestyle. Vaccines are meant to protect your furry friend from various harmful diseases, including rabies, kennel cough, and feline panleukopenia. Not only are all of them harmful, many are fatal.
Along with protecting your furry friends from harm, each vaccine is equipped with the antibodies needed to fight the disease off. So if your dog or cat is exposed to a certain health condition, and they’ve been vaccinated for that condition, their body can be more prepared to fight it off.
Common Hazard Pet Vaccinations
Dogs and cats are different in many ways, including the diseases that can affect them. Even within the same species, there are differences to consider when determining the recommended vaccines. What one pet might need a vaccine for, another might not. It’s ultimately dependent on age, breed, and lifestyle. The following is a list of the core vaccines that we recommend for dogs and cats:
- 4 DHPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, Parainfluenza)
