Animal Vaccination Services in Jacksonville Fl Area

Why are vaccinations important?

Vaccinations are used to prevent the death of millions of cats and dogs over the years by inoculating them against common, spreadable, and preventable animal illnesses. Many of these conditions are not only easily avoided with immunizations but can help pet parents avoid costly treatments down the road from a condition that could have been prevented entirely.

What type of vaccinations are encouraged?

First off, there are some city and state laws that may require pet owners to have their pets vaccinated against certain diseases, such as rabies, for not only the pet’s safety but the community’s. Many vaccinations offered also provide protection against conditions that can be spread from wildlife, including distemper. By vaccinating a pet against these common diseases, it reduces one’s risk of contracting and therefore keeps everyone safe and healthy.

How often does my pet need vaccinations?

The team at San Marco Animal Hospital can advise pet owners of the timetable for getting preventive inoculations. During your first appointment with Dr. Venkat Gutta, the team will advise you as to when your pet is due for upcoming vaccinations.
