Why are Pet Vaccinations important?
At San Marco Animal Hospital, we see many patients who are interested in helping their pets live a long, happy, and healthy life. To do this, our team may recommend routine pet vaccinations. Jacksonville, Florida area pet parents are strongly encouraged to have their dogs or cats vaccinated according to a regular schedule to help protect them from disease. Our veterinarians and staff are happy to assist with educating pet parents on routine vaccinations needed to protect and maintain their pet’s quality of life.
The importance of vaccinations
Just as we vaccinate our children and ourselves from preventable conditions, we need to do the same for our pets with that exact mindset. Our veterinary team wants every pet owner to fully understand the role vaccinations play in keeping their furry companions healthy and free from disease. Vaccinations help pets avoid certain health problems that can occur during their lifespan.
How vaccinations keep your pet healthy
There are many reasons why pet owners should routinely vaccinate their furry friends. Vaccinations:
- Help prevent death from health conditions that can occur
- Prevent the spread of certain diseases to your family members, such as rabies
- Keep your pet healthy, improving their overall quality of life
- Help pet owners avoid costly treatments for preventable illnesses
Our practice offers both core and lifestyle vaccinations for cats and dogs. This includes the following:
- Feline leukemia
- Bordetella (kennel cough)
- FVRCP (feline combination core vaccine)
