Vaccinations are not only safe and effective; they are an important and fundamental part of your pet’s preventative healthcare plan. Advances in veterinary immunology have made diseases that once were relatively common and fatal to pets easily preventable. With each passing year, veterinary science is improving on existing vaccines as well as increasing our ability to prevent an even wider array of contagious diseases.
At Terra Linda Veterinary Hospital, we have developed a protocol designed to protect your pet from diseases they are most likely to be exposed to in our region of the country. We work with you to develop a strategy that takes into account your pet’s unique lifestyle and risk factors and seek to administer the least, but appropriate number of vaccines necessary to protect your pet. Before your pet receives a vaccination, the doctor will perform a thorough examination and may even recommend a few tests to ensure that your pet is healthy enough to receive the vaccine. Pets that are up to date on their physical exams will receive a short exam from our technical staff prior to vaccinating.
Our veterinarians truly believe that our carefully balanced approach is the best means to prevent infectious disease and the possibility of your pet having an adverse reaction to a vaccine.
