San Diego Pet Vaccinations and More

resized_225x167_4616342Vaccinating your pet according to the schedule suggested by our veterinarian in Chula Vista is an important part of your pet’s preventative care. Vaccinations vary by species and age, but generally speaking dogs and cats begin getting vaccinations not long after they are born and continue getting regular immunizations until they are well into their senior years. Most experts agree that the widespread and regular practice of vaccinating our pets with a rabies vaccination and other immunizations have greatly reduced the occurrences of deadly diseases and illnesses.

South Bay Veterinary Hospital Recommends Regular Vaccinations for Chula Vista Pets

In order for kittens and puppies to mature into healthy cats and dogs, they need to be immunized against a variety of illnesses and diseases. Once the kitten or puppy has been weaned from its mother’s milk, the mother’s immunity to disease no longer protects the baby. Veterinary hospitals generally suggest inoculating kittens and puppies every three weeks until they are 16 weeks of age.

Veterinary hospitals used to recommend a rabies vaccination and other immunizations on a yearly basis. Veterinary science has since determined that many of these vaccinations carry over for more than a year and can be given on a different schedule.

The veterinarians at our animal vet clinic are the best source of information where vaccinations are concerned. Their recommendations may vary based on geographic area, the age of the pet and whether they are indoor or outdoor animals. At Chula Vista Veterinary Hospital we recommend rabies vaccination.

Vaccinating your pet in Chula Vista can ensure that they do not fall ill from bordetella, feline leukemia, Lyme disease, distemper, parvovirus, and rabies. While these vaccines protect your pet from contracting these illnesses, they also protect you from certain diseases that can infect humans as well. A regular rabies vaccination can ensure the rarity of animals falling ill to this disease. There are few risks associated with vaccinating your pet at our animal vet clinic. Some animals may appear to be sluggish or listless for a day or so afterward. If they being vomiting, shaking or have difficulty breathing call us right away. These symptoms, however, are rare.

When you bring your pet to our clinic for an immunization, the vet will give them a shot that contains either a weakened or dead form of the disease you will be inoculating against. The arrival of this antigen in the animal’s body forces the pet’s immune system to defend against it, thus building immunity against potential future contact. In rare cases a pet may still become ill when exposed to disease they were vaccinated against. This is, however, is a minimal occurrence.

Even if never allowed outdoors or exposed to other animals, vaccinations are still important. Our animal hospital staff will answer any questions you may have about protecting your pet from illness and disease. The next time your pet is due for vaccinations, call our Chula Vista animal hospital, where we care for each and every pet like they were our own. Call us to schedule a vaccination today.

I have been bringing my pets to South Bay Veterinary Hospital for 11 years. It would take a long time to tell you just how much I admire and appreciate everything that Dr. Deo and his wonderful staff have done for me and my pets. When I lost two of my kitties to heart failure and one to cancer, the compassion from Dr. Deo and Gina is what helped me get through the terrible loss. This Hospital cares a great deal about animals and their welfare and I have complete confidence in the staff and the veterinarians there.

We have 4 cats, 1 with special needs as he is a diabetic. I wouldn’t even consider taking my babies to anyone other than SB Vet Hospital. Dr. Rozsa is truly the “Cat Whisperer.” Her compassion and knowledge are like none I’ve ever seen before and I’ve had pets my entire life.
