Rancho Bernardo Pet Vaccinations Services

Companion Care Veterinary Hospital


Vaccinations are extremely important for your pet's health, and at Companion Care Veterinary Hospital in Rancho Bernardo, we are committed to ensuring that every pet gets the preventative care they need for a long and happy life.

Why Should I Get My Pet Vaccinated?

Dog-Getting-Vaccinated-Pet vaccinations are good for your pet's health. Vaccines prevent your pet from developing several diseases, including some diseases which can be potentially life-threatening to your cat or dog.

Pet vaccinations are good for your family's health. Surprisingly, there are some feline or canine diseases which can be transferrable to humans. Vaccinating your pets also protect your children and loved ones.

Pet vaccinations can also help your financial bottom line. The costs associated with treating damaging and potentially life-threatening diseases can be enormous. It's a particularly hard pill for many families to swallow when most of these diseases are preventable with the appropriate intervention and vaccination.

 The most common diseases that pets receive vaccinations for include:

  • Distemper
  • Hepatitis
  • Rabies

It's important to know that in most states, rabies vaccinations are required by law. And although not all pet vaccinations are legally required, veterinarians and public health officials strongly recommend that every pet owner vaccinates their pets against several types of diseases.

Additionally, there are some vaccinations considered "non-core" that may be important for your pet depending on the animal's lifestyle. Non-core vaccinations include vaccines against Bordetella (kennel cough), which is important for pets that are frequently around other animals. If you bring your cat or dog to a groomer or kennel regularly, then your veterinarian will probably recommend it. Indeed, most kennels, pet day cares, and grooming shops require these non-core vaccines.

When Should My Pet Get Vaccinated?

The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) provides standard guidelines for veterinarians on pet vaccinations. These guidelines include recommendations on when and how often pets should be vaccinated. A kitten or puppy aged six to eight weeks typically requires a standard regime of vaccinations throughout the year. After this initial period, vaccinations typically are administered on a less frequent schedule. Your veterinarian will keep you updated on your pet's lifetime vaccination schedule.

What Are the Risks Associated with Pet Vaccines?

Like most medical procedures, vaccinations do carry a small amount of risk. It's important to realize, however, that any potential risks are far outweighed by the health benefits for your pet. Our veterinarians are committed to answering all of your questions about pet vaccinations. Prior to any vaccination, we'll discuss the signs and symptoms of to look out for in your animal, in the rare event of an adverse reaction.
