At ABC Veterinary Hospital Pacific Beach, your pet can have a longer, healthier life if you evaluate them frequently and keep their required vaccines up to date.

Pet Vaccines in San Diego, CA

All of us at ABC Veterinary Hospital Pacific Beach have the opportunity to truly get to know you and your pet through routine exams. A key component of the treatment we offer is developing a relationship with you and creating a connection with your animal friend.

Pet Vaccines

There are many available vaccines, and not all pets should be vaccinated with all of them. Your veterinarian will consider your pet’s risk of exposure based on many factors, such as your geographic location, travel plans, and contact with other animals. The frequency of vaccinations is also based on individual factors. Your veterinarian will tailor a vaccination program that is best for your pet.

Kittens and puppies require vaccinations (similar to children) due to their developing immune systems. An incomplete series of vaccinations may lead to inadequate protection, so it is critical to complete the entire regimen.

In many communities, including San Diego County, rabies vaccination is required by law for all cats and dogs over four months. Rabies is a serious, often fatal, disease that can spread from infected animals to people. Vaccinating your pets against rabies also helps to protect your family and may save your pet’s life if they bite someone—unvaccinated animals may have to be euthanized to test for rabies if they bite someone.

In summary, vaccinations are part of a total wellness plan for your pet and your veterinarian will determine the best schedule based on your pet’s risk and lifestyle.

What are pet vaccines?

Pet vaccines are small amounts of altered or “dead” viruses, bacteria, or other disease-causing organisms present in vaccines. When given, they encourage your pet’s immune system to develop antibodies and disease-fighting cells that can defend against such illnesses. During your pet’s wellness exam, we suggest a vaccination schedule based on your pet’s age, breed, and species. Contact us today to schedule your pet’s vaccine appointment.
