Core Vaccinations for Cats and Dogs
It's almost that time of year again! Annual vet record checks! Because pet care providers were doing herd immunity before it was cool ;) and because we love your pets and want the best for them. There are a lot of icky diseases out there and it can be confusing figuring out what preventative health care methods are best for your pet (especially if your vet tends to use technical language or lumps many of these into terms like DHPP, DAHP, etc...)
Here's a quick summary of the core vaccinations we require at Pug Boat and, likely, that your vet would recommend anyway.
Some of these are given individually, some are given together, and some may be annual or every few years. Some may not be recommended at all for pets with specific allergies, immune system conditions, or really advanced age. It's always best to discuss your options with qualified veterinary professionals.
